Druk Path Trek
This is a classic walk along high, windy ridges, past ruined forts which long ago guarded against Tibetan invasion. Although the route is sparsely inhabited there are wonderful lakes teeming with fish and the area is famous for its spectacular rhododendron forests which bloom in Spring. The views of the Himalayas can be seen in late autumn and winter.
After arrival and overnight stay at Paro, the next day breakfast we visit the ruins of Drukgyel Dzong, a victory fortress of the 17th century. On the way back stop at the Takshang (tiger’s nest) view point, and also visit a farm house.
We also visit Ta-Dzong (National Museum) which is considered to be the one of the best natural and historical museum and walk down hill for a view of Paro Dzong with its traditional cantilever bridge over the Pa-chu (Paro River).
The next day the Trek starts to Jele Dzong. This is rather a short trekking day so you can relax and enjoy the secnic beauty of the Paro vally. The hike is gradually uphill through pine forest.
On day 4 we trek to Jangchulakha. The trek begins uphill through huge rhododendron trees. You may encounter yak herders during the winter season. We camp at 3650 meters. Walking time 3/4 hours.
On day 5 we proceed to Jigmelangtsho. The trail follows the ridge and on clear weather you will have perfect view of the mountains. The path descends for sometime and camp will be near the lake at 3600 meters. The lake is filled with gaint salmon trout. Walking time 5/6 hours.
