The Druk Path

The Druk Path Trekking

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.

During the succeeding 4 days of trekking, we climb above the tree-line and cross several passes. 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.

We visit the ever impressive Taktsang Monastery in the Paro Valley and to visit the Tashichho dzong at Thimpu.

The total of nine days of trekking takes you up to an elevation of 4,210m.
