Hard to describe the trek to Jhomolari and Zoya Yaksa. The flowers, birds, people, and everything about the area is amazing. A life time adventure into the real Bhutan.

I completed a 7-day trek on the Jomolhari loop from Shana to Thimphu. The trek is through majestic and beautiful valleys, across fast-flowing, glacier-fed rivers on wooden plank bridges. We battled searing sun, icy winds, snow and treacherous ascents and descents taking us from around...More

Jhomolhari peak is a sacred peak for the Bhutanese people and if you visit the chelela pass on a clear day, you can actually see this peak.

On a wonderful sunny day you could actually spot the Jumolhari mountain from Paro Drugyel Dzong. Further the best to spot the mountain is to go for Jumolhari Trek, where you will camp on the base of Jumolhari Mountain on the second night.

This is Bhutan's highest peak in the Himalayas & considered sacred - you can only see it from a distance or go to a Jhomolhari base camp as you cannot climb the peak. Our guide pointed out this peak to us from both Chele La...More

One thing I love about Bhutan is that they take pride in their natural beauty and try to preserve the environment. This part of their national culture and their GNH. This park is gorgeous and it is not crowded with tourists and people littering all...More

Having done quite a few trekking holidays, this particular trek is definately the most arduous. Despite timing the trek in supposed dry season, it was still extremely cold and wet causing the trek to be extremely muddy (the horses on the trek doesn't help) adding...More

I'm considering doing the longer Sharna Zampa-Thangthangkha-Jangothang-Lingshi-Chebisa-Shomuthang-Robluthang-Limithang-Laya-Koina-Gasa trek with Bhutan-Bhutan Tours. If I do, I'll post a detailed review. Most reviewers don't include their itineraries, so it is hard to judge the trails. Any suggestions?

Hi Cindy - I read your review about the Jhomolhari Trek with interest and note that you did it with Bhutan Swallowtail tours. I have been looking for a local Bhutan company to do the trek with, rather than an international operator who would, in any event, team up with a local Bhutan company to do it, as I want as much money as possible to go to the local economy. Can you let me know how you found them and/or if there is any other tour company doing the Jhomolhari trek with the Laya Gasa option that you might be able to recommend? Many thanks.
