Chomolhari Trekking

8 Days

The Chomolhari (Jumolhari) trekking is the most popular trail in Bhutan. This trek offers the spectacular views of the Mount Jumolhari (7,314m/23,997ft) from the Base Camp at Jangothang. About 40% trekkers follow the popular Chomolhari trekking route in main seasons. The Chomolhari trek can be possible from April to early June and September to November.

However, the best months considered to trek in this region are April and October only. The Chomolhari trail is full of mud and it can be miserable in the rain. The high pass is closed by snow from late November until April. The trek needs some good equipment as it is very cold at night above Jangothang.

The Trek starts from Drugyl Dzong in Paro and ends finally at Dodena in Thimphu. At first, you will take an acclimatization walk to the Tiger’s Nest Monastery in Paro and then start the trek from the historic Drugyal Dzong. Neylela Pass (4,700m/15,420ft) and Yelela Pass at (4,820m/15,814ft) are the two major high passes on this trek.

About 18 kilometer distance is covered on this trek. The stunning view of Mount Jumolhari (7,314m/23,997ft), Jichu Drake (6,989m/22,930ft) and Tsherimgang (6,789m/22,274ft) add additional attraction on this trip. Rich vegetation, yak herders and grazing land make this trail more scenic and memorable.
