    The Jomolhari Trek stands out as one of the most sought-after trekking experiences around Mount Jomolhari in Bhutan. This trek takes you through ancient villages, alpine grazing meadows, livestock farms, and a rich variety of flora, offering a profound encounter with Bhutanese nature and culture. George Mallory himself has lauded the Jomolhari Trek as an astonishing and magnificent journey, culminating in the crossing of the 4877m Bhontela pass.

    Embarking on the Jomolhari trek commences upon arrival at Paro airstrip. Right from the start, you are immersed in the ambiance of Dzongs, monasteries, and temples surrounding Paro, including the National Museum and the iconic Tiger's Nest (Taktshang Monastery). As the trek unfolds, you traverse pine woods adorned with Buddhist prayer flags, all while enjoying panoramic views of Jichu Drake and Mount Jomolhari. The journey retraces through Shodu, Barshong, Dolam Kencho, and concludes in Thimpu. Exploring the cultural heritage of Thimpu, followed by a scenic drive back to Paro, adds to the overall charm of the expedition.

    Optimal seasons for the Jomolhari Trek are Spring and Autumn. Himalayan Joy Adventure offers the Jomolhari Trek with a personalized itinerary. For further details, please don't hesitate to reach out to us.
