14 Days Jomolhari Trek

ADVENTURE RETREAT – 13 NIGHTS WITH 7 NIGHTS CAMPING TREK

The most popular trek in Bhutan. With altitude differences of 2,500m and nearly 5,000m (lowest and highest point of the route), it offers a wide range of landscape, fauna and flora. The highlight of this trek is the spectacular view of Mount Jomolhari from Jomolhari Basecamp, Jangothang. Nearly the whole trek goes through a small part of the Jigme Singye National Park, passing a few of the Yak herder’s settlement and the remotest region of Lingshi.

The seven night full-service camping trek offers river valley days, high altitude trekking days and a full day to explore Jangothang (Mt Jhomalhari base camp) deep in the Himalayas in the shadow of the Kingdom’s highest peak—Mt Jhomalhari (7314m).

This is an active itinerary and because of this, and the heights reached, this trip has been graded as a moderate to hard trekking adventure. As an indicator you should be able to walk up to 24 kilometres in mountainous terrain within seven to nine hours.

Total Trek Days : 7 days or more
Max Altitude:    4980m
