Itinerary

Day 1 :
Paro

Upon arrival at Paro International Airport, proceed to your hotel for check-in. Afterwards, explore the sights and attractions of Paro.

The journey to the monastery involves ascending a steep dirt track until reaching the Half Point Cafe, followed by a gradual slope and descent on steps, before climbing back up a flight of stairs to reach the monastery.

To reach the Jele Dzong campsite, one must first take a 30-minute drive on a feeder road to the base. From there, the ascent begins on a grassy and dirt trail, followed by a gradual walk and a short, steep climb on a rocky trail. The ascent then continues gradually until reaching the campsite.

The trek involves a combination of gradual and steep climbs along the ridge, passing through juniper and rhododendron forests. After the ascent, there is a descent towards the Jigmelangtsho lake, where one can set up camp and enjoy the view of Mt. Jitchudrake.

The trek involves a long and gradual climb through dense forest, which eventually leads to a straight path via Janetsho Lake. After reaching the lake, there is a climb to an open field that offers spectacular views of the Himalayan peaks. From there, the path remains straight with a short descent towards the campsite.

Day 6 :
Thimphu

The journey begins with a gradual walk and uphill slopes along a rocky path towards the Phume La Pass (4210m), which offers panoramic views of the snow-capped Himalayan peaks. After reaching the pass, the trail takes a steep descent past the Thada Goemba and Phajoding Monastery, meandering through a pine forest until reaching the roadhead.

Day 7 :
Thimphu

In the morning, visit the largest Buddha Dordenma statue (54m), as well as the Folk Heritage Museum, Textile Museum, and Craft Bazaar. In the afternoon, explore the Kaja Throm Farmers Market and enjoy some free time.

Departure

It involves an early morning start with breakfast, packing up of camping gear, and a descent back to the base camp with stops for breaks and lunch.
