One of the most popular of treks in the kingdom, this short 6-day trek starts in Paro to Thimpu or vice versa. It can be very easily combined with any of our longer touring programs. The trail crosses a chain of mountains that separate the valleys of Paro and the capital, Thimphu. This beautiful trail passes through sparsely inhabited regions with wonderful views of mountain lakes and crystal clear streams– both teeming with fish. If you happen to trek in early summer (May) you will encounter one of the most wonderful and spectacular scenes when many several species of the Rhododendrons will be in bloom…in the autumn and fall you will encounter crisp clear views of the great Bhutanese Himalayas including the Sacred Chomolhari….
While the trek is short, you will reach moderately high altitudes in a short span and thus offering you an opportunity of experiencing alpine pastureland and the great views of the high mountains in a short period of time…. Considered a moderate, this trek can usually be accomplished by anyone who is fit and in good health and offers one of the best opportunities to encounter the beauty of rural Bhutan, its rich culture, and its stunning Himalayan vistas in a short period of time. Our Druk (Dragon) Path trek is designed so that it allows you to interact with the local people and their culture and with their landscapes without going out on a more longer and strenuous trekking programs. It is designed to maximize exposure to the countryside and provide views of the most spectacular mountain scenery of this fairy tale kingdom– Drukyul.
