Druk Path Trekking
Druk Path Trekking is one of the most popular treks in Bhutan. Following the ancient high-level route between Paro and Thimpu, the Druk Path is an excellent short trek, ideal for those who are in Bhutan only for a short duration. You will experience the countryside, mountains, alpine meadows, glacial lakes and monasteries. 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.
Druk Path Trekking had got very little tourist traffic on the pristine trekking routes in Bhutan. This is primarily a positive off shot of the Bhutanese Government’s policulimiting tourist to four thousand a year. Naturally one has the pleasant sensation of breaking fresh ground on treks in Bhutan. The Chomolhari trek follows the crystal clear trout rich upstream trail of Paro Chulalong the verdant Rhododendron canopied forest and salubrious green alpine meadows. Mt. Chomolhari, having one of the most beautiful peaks in East Himalayas, stands at a magnificent 7300 meters with age old frontier forts and sprawling yak pastures in its foreground a truly rewarding sight for determined trekker.
