Trip Overview

This is a superb trek for average walkers. It goes into northern Bhutan to the land of yak herders and to the base of Mt. Jhomolhari, at 7,316 meters (24,000 feet) and on to remote Lingshi Dzong. The trek begins at Druk-gyal Dzong passing through beautiful villages, scattered hamlets and farmland. 

Rich and varied vegetation from richly forested valley to high alpine pastureland where yak herders graze their animals, trout fishing in the sky blue lake, magnificent views of snowy mountains and the Himalayan blue sheep and snow leopard can be encountered on this trek. There are fabulous views of the mountains and exceptional flora. You will encounter many yak-herders but few villages. The maximum latitude is 4,900 meters (16,000 feet).
