Leading on an ancient route through a stunning landscape of pine forests, pristine lakes, and high ridges, it connects the valleys of Paro and Thimpu. The trail takes us through stunning rhododendron forests and yak pastures offering beautiful vistas of ancient lhakhangs and dzongs as you hike.

The 7-day trek is easy as it covers short distances from one campsite to another. We’ll begin from the beautiful valley of Paro, hiking past lush pine forests to reach Jili Dzong. This fortress provides stunning views of Mount Jumolhari to the north.

For the next few days, we’ll continue on a picturesque trail to cross several mountain passes. We’ll come across Jimiling lake, whose crystal clear water houses gigantic freshwater trouts. Walking past yak herder’s camp and beautiful mountain lakes you’ll enjoy exceptional views of the mountains.

The route involves crossing the villages of Jangchulakha and Jimelang Tsho until we reach the Phadjoding Monastery.

Phadjoding offers a gorgeous spectacle of  Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the highest mountain in the world which has not been scaled yet, and several other Himalayan peaks. Finally, we’ll descend through dense pine forest to reach the capital city of Thimpu, marking the end of this remarkable trip.
