Chomolhari or Jomolhari base camp trek

Explore some of the oldest monuments in the country. The Chomolhari Trek is Bhutan’s most recognized trek, following the crystal-clear, trout-rich stream of Paro Chu along the green alpine meadows. If you seek a relatively short but rugged high-altitude trek with ample time for unique cultural insights, then the Jomolhari trek is a perfect choice. First, we begin past Drugkyel Dzong at Shana, in the picturesque Paro Valley. Next, we penetrate the stunning rhododendron forests and wind up the valley as we cross and recross clear glacial streams. The landscape eventually opens to lush meadows and leads us to Jangothang, where we camp below Jomolhari, 7314 meters sacred peak. Next, we continue toward the Nile La pass at 4700 meters. We are greeted with views of Jichu Drake 6794 meters and Tshrim Khang before making the gradual crossing of the Pass, looking at the views of the Lingshi Dzong perched high on a hilltop. Finally, the trek’s most challenging day sees us crossing the 4950 meters of Yale Pass before we descend to the Thimphu River and Thimpu, the Bhutanese capital. This is quite a short but challenging trek that gives mountain views generally reserved for much longer hikes.
