Jomolhari Base Camp Trek - 16 Days

Trek Level:  Moderate
Best Season: April to June and September to November

Mount Chomolhari (also spelt as Jomolhari 7, 316 meters above sea level) means the Goddess of Mountain that reigns in glory and its five sister peaks are the sources of Paro Chu (River), that nourishes the lush rice fields, apple and peach orchards of Paro Valley. The sacred mountain is a great object of respect and veneration to Bhutanese people and has one of the most popular trekking routes in the eastern Himalayas.
The trail begins at the Drugyel Dzong and follows the ancient caravan route, heading towards the base camp of Mount Chomolhari , passing through scattered hamlets and farmland, into deep and richly forested valleys, which leads to a high alpine pastureland where yak herders graze their animals. The trek offers a taste of great variety of Bhutanese landscape. Despite being one of the high altitude treks, this trek is moderate graded and requires no previous experience but a strong pairs of legs with determination and a spirit of adventures. We cover remote highlands of the Lingshi, witnessing the nomadic lifestyles of these high altitude gypsies. Sights of Yaks and the wild blue sheep on the mountains are awesome. Himalayan poppies , primulas , gentianas and the spectacular rheum nobile fill the mountain side in the summer. We follow the trial to Thimpu along Wanchu River and through rhododendron and pine forest and the ruins of Barshong Fortress before reaching the upper Thimpu valley at Dodena.
