    Trek to Sacred Chomolhari

    Hiking the ancient trail to sacred Chomolhari in Bhutan

    This trek through the Kingdom of Bhutan is wholly within a national park and leads you  to the glacial base of the most beautiful and renowned eastern Himalayan peaks.  Warm up with a hike to the famous Taktsang Monastery – built into a sheer mountain face 3,000 feet above Paro – before beginning your trek at Drugyel Dzong, site of the Bhutanese victory over the Tibetans. Follow the monk warriors' trail toward Tibet. In the shadow of majestic Mount Chomolhari, note how juniper and pine forests give way to heath and dwarf rhododendron as you gain altitude. Savor the unrelenting scenic beauty of the mountains. From deep valleys to vast glaciers, you will explore every facet of the Himalayan terrain.  All wildlife is protected here, and you may see musk deer, goat antelope, and many of Bhutan's more than 600 species of birds.
