Jumolhari trek in Bhutan is the most enchanting adventure trek in the Himalaya. Bhutan Classic trek
Around Jumolhari starts at Paro and end at Doden near Thimpu. The first three days of this trek follow
the Pachhu or Paro river valley to Jangothang base camp from where you will have a stunning view of
7315m Mount Jumolhari, the second highest unclimbed peak in the world, sometimes known as “the
bride of Kangchenjunga”, is a mountain in the Himalayas, straddling the border between Yadong County
of Tibet. The mountain is the source of the Paro Chu (Paro river) which flows from the south side and the
Amo Chu which flows from the north side.
The trail goes through high pasturelands where yak herders graze their animals and Lingzhi, the highest
settlement in the north with a unique mountain culture. Along the way you will have startling views of
Mount Jichu Drake (6989m) and Tshrim Khang (6789m). The next high pass after Lingzhi is the Yele la

masses of wildflowers carpet the high meadows whereas during fall, rice paddies ripen to a golden
brown. You might also have an opportunity to see the blue sheep, wide variety of birds. This trek is good
for experienced trekkers and the best time to undertake this trek is Apr, May, Sept, Oct and Nov. The trek
offers a taste of great variety of Bhutanese landscape.
rekking in Bhutan is physically demanding because of the distance and abrupt changes in elevation. You
will have to walk 7-9 hours for 15-19 kilometers daily to reach the campsites. But if you have experience
