Druk Path Trek

Code: BHU-TR-DPT
9 Days - 8 Night

Description

Following the ancient high-level route between Paro and Thimpu, the Druk Path is a simply excellent short trek which goes past several remote lakes. The first day’s walk leads to the ruined Jeli Dzong which sits on a high ridge above the Paro valley and commands breathtaking views across to Chomolhari. During the succeeding 4 days of trekking, we climb above the tree-line and cross several passes, including the Phume La (4210m).

En route, we camp beside clear mountain lakes, visit yak herders’ encampments and enjoy splendid panoramas of the peaks on the border with Tibet, including Jitchu Drake and Gangkar Puensum. Also included is the chance to hike to Taktsang Monastery in the Paro Valley. This popular trip provides a taste of the unique and fascinating culture of Bhutan. Although it is a short trek, it still goes to a high altitude making it moderately strenuous.
