The Druk Path Trek is one of the classic and finest walks to be done in Bhutan quickly. Following a traditional trading route and overseeing the high mountain passes, the trek connects the valleys of Paro and Thimpu.

Druk Path Trek Itinerary

The Druk Path Trek nine days itinerary starts from Kathmandu. After taking a flight to Paro, we finally started our trekking. We walk uphill through the apple orchards and pine forests to see the old fortress, a Jele Dzong museum (3490m), from where you see a fantastic view of Mount Jomolhari (7326m) to the north. The idea is going to leave you astonished. In the next four days, we climb along with different passes, including Phume La (4210m), and see clear lakes, yak and yak herders, and the spectacular view of the Himalayas in this region- Mount Jomolhari (7326m), Mt Jitchu Drake (6662m) and Gangkhar Puensum (7570m). We settle in campsites in various locations near lakes, allowing you to explore the people and lifestyle en route. Our final destination will be through pine forests as we walk to Phajoding monasteries leading to Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan. The trek is recommended to be done from February to June and September to December to experience the most of the Bhutan Tour
