Jomolhari Trek

9 Nights / 10 Days Trekking

Jomolhari Trek

per person

Towering mountains, alpine meadows sprinkled with wildflowers, gleaming lakes, and picture-perfect villages of on green pastures—Bhutan is truly are a trekker’s paradise. This particular trek has been designed for an active trekker. Mount Jumolhari, at 7,314m, is one of the highest peaks in Bhutan and is the inspiring backdrop to several days of strenuous trekking, until we reach our highest point at 4,820m. Our journey through this magnificent alpine world begins from Paro to Shana, nestled alongside beautiful scenery. From there, our real trek begins in the Himalayan wilderness where the vegetation changes and allows you to enter into a territory that almost seems like an entirely different world.

This trek will take you to places like Lingshi, “the land at the top of the world,” which is a pristine realm of wild mountains, magnificent meadows, and tranquil hillocks and villages bathed in the vivid light of the Himalayan sun. You’ll experience it all on this trek with our experience trekking guide, forever catering to your curious mind. Along with the adventure, you’ll savor the sights and sounds of Bhutan’s wild frontiers and at the end of the day, find cozy tents overlooking the stark natural beauty of a land rarely seen by humans
