Bhutan Chomolhari Trek – 15 days
On this trek you visit base camp of Mt. Chomolari (7316m) and a remote fort of Langshi Dzong. There are great view of himalaya and the surrounding mountain. From Paro walk through narrow agricultural valley and continue through a river valley that winds up and down the drainage. The trail gradually climb up. At high mountain pasture you meet yak herders. They live in tents made from yaks hide and stone houses. The view of the Himalaya is rewarding. Visit base camp of Chomolari (4150m), fort at Lingshi Dzong (4150m) and make a day excursion to the base of Jichu Drake peak (6974m). It is possible to see musk deer and blue sheep. Trail condition and weather will determine route of your return journey. It can be either same route or via Yali la , a pass of 4820 meter, to Shodu (3963m) and Barshong (3785m) that descend to meet the main trail to Thimpu chu (river). This trail is bit tedious though it terminates at Thimpu.
Stay one more night in Thimpu to take a day trip to Punakha (1350m) through high pass at Dochu la (3100m) and Wangdi Phodrang. Next day take a half day tour of the capital to completes your journey to Druk Yul. Return to Paro and fly to Kathmandu or onward.
This is probably the best trek in Bhutan. Best time to visit : April to October. Late Autumn and winter are not good due to heavy snow condition.
