Chomlohari Trek is perhaps one of the best and challenging treks in Bhutan. The trek is entirely a camping trek and passes through some of the most remote, isolated mountain terrain of Bhutan.

The trekking trail touches pristine wilderness of Bhutan covering Paro Chu valley and Jigme Dorji National Park. Walk through the forests of pine, oak and rhododendron that are home to many wildlife including Takin, the national animal of Bhutan. You will cross three highest Himalayan passes of Bhutan namely, Dochu La pass(3100m), Bonte la (4900m), Takang La pass (4500m), each offering great views of Jomolhari (7326m), Gungkhar Puensum (7570m), Jitchu Drake (6800m) etc. Hike up to Chomolhari Base Camp (4050m) for breathtaking views of Mt. Chomolhari and explore blue Tsophu Lakes and Mo Chu and Po Chu rivers.

Trekking aside this program also gives you a chance to pass through the three cities of Paro, Thimphu and Punakha allowing you visit Tatksang Monastery, Rimpung Dzong, National Library, Punakha Dzong mothers.
