Trip Overview

This trek is for average walkers and gives you an opportunity to visit the isolated valleys of Gangtey Gompa/Phobjikha, Gogona and Kothoka. The trek leaves the valley of Gangtey at 2,830 meters and leads south, then west through the meadows and fields. It then climbs through a mixed forest of juniper, bamboo, rhododendron, magnolia, firs, oaks, spruce, dwarf rhododendrons, miniature azaleas & cypress. The trail is rough, rocky and weaves through trees where pack animals have created deep muddy furrows.


Gogona is a beautiful hilltop site overlooking a long valley. A 30-minute walk beyond Gogona is a hamlet where you may find homemade ara [local drink]. The women here weave blankets and speak a different dialect called Bjop-kha [language of the nomads].
