On a wonderful sunny day you could actually spot the Jumolhari mountain from Paro Drugyel Dzong. Further the best to spot the mountain is to go for Jumolhari Trek, where you will camp on the base of Jumolhari Mountain on the second night.

This is Bhutan's highest peak in the Himalayas & considered sacred - you can only see it from a distance or go to a Jhomolhari base camp as you cannot climb the peak. Our guide pointed out this peak to us from both Chele La Pass and Drukyel Dzong and, possibly because the weather was very fine on that day,... More

One thing I love about Bhutan is that they take pride in their natural beauty and try to preserve the environment. This part of their national culture and their GNH. This park is gorgeous and it is not crowded with tourists and people littering all over the place. It is worth getting out of the cities for a few days... More

Having done quite a few trekking holidays, this particular trek is definately the most arduous. Despite timing the trek in supposed dry season, it was still extremely cold and wet causing the trek to be extremely muddy (the horses on the trek doesn't help) adding difficulties to elevation and altitude. Waterproof shoes and mud guards are highly recommended and if... More

The Jhomolhari 2 Route is a great 6-day trek, we were led by a great guide and his crew including horseman from Etho Metho Tours&Treks. Wonderful people who were looking after us very well. We were pushed close to our physical limit, but hey we passed middle age. No doubt this is a bit of a challenge at any age.... More
