Jomolhari trek to the base of mount Jomolhari (7,326 m) offer relatively best mid range trek through rugged high altitude trekking. Jomolhari also spell as Chomolhari sometimes known as "the bride of Kangchenjunga”, is a mountain in the Himalayas, straddling the border between Yadong County of Tibet, China and the Thimphu district of Bhutan. The north face rises over 2,700 meters above the barren plains. For those looking for unique cultural insights and trek in country know as “The land of Thunder Dragon”, and then the Jomolhari trek is the great choice.
Start the trek beyond Drugkyel Dzong at Shana, in the charming Paro Valley we set off into the lush green rhododendron forests and follow the winding trail up the valley crossing and re-crossing shiny glacial streams. Finally the countryside view becomes clear up to grassy pastures and takes us to Jangothang where we set our camp below the holy mountain of Jomolhari (7326m). Continuing toward the Nyile La (4700m) we are treated to views of the startling Jichu Drake (6794m) and Tshrim Khang, before making the gradual crossing of the Pass with views of the Lingshi Dzong positioned high on a hill top. The hardest day of the trek sees us crossing the 4950m Yale Pass before going down to the Thimphu River and the Bhutanese capital of Thimphu. This is a comparatively short trekking but demanding trip rewarding the trekkers with mountain views generally reserved for much longer treks.
