Druk Path Trek


Druk Path Trek is an opportunity to experience Bhutan during your holidays. It is one of the finest treks in the most beautiful section of an ancient high-level mule trail. This trek connects the valley of Paro and Thimphu. One will also get to see and be part of the fascinating culture of the Thunder Dragon Nation.

On Druk Path Trek we hike to the altitude ranging from 2000-4200 m above sea level.  The trail takes you through forests of fir, blue pine and dwarf rhododendrons. This trek also offers hikers stunning views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the highest unscaled peak in the world. You will also see Jichu Drake and Gangkar Puensum.

Druk Path Trek starts with your visit to explore Taktsang Monastery. We take our trail through apple orchids and pine forest. Later we pass through Jele Dzong (fortress), which sits on a high grassy ridge. It will offer breath-taking views of Mount Jumolhari to the north. En route, you enjoy tremendous, panoramic views of snow-clad Himalayan peaks. You can also explore Punakha at the end of your trek.
