Why to visit Druk Path Trek
The road leads to a vista of the Jili Dzong, a 16th century castle, and then to Jangchu Laka's lush green pastures. Take a walk along the tranquil waters of Jimilang Tsho and Simkotra Tsho Lakes. Offer prayers at the Phajoding Monastery before heading back down to the Thimphu Valley, passing through Mothitang, a nearby suburb. For some enjoyment while camping, the lakes also offer fishing opportunities.
As you travel over the rocky landscape of Bhutan's Druk Path, you'll lose yourself in nature. This is one of the best ways to experience Bhutan's unspoiled beauty while also taking in the splendour of the Himalayas. The Druk Path is a relatively easy ascent with beautiful landscapes rich in blue pines, rhododendron blooms, and fir.
The Druk Path provides beautiful views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, Bhutan's unclimbed highest peak and the world's highest peak at 7570m. Overall, the Druk Path is a fantastic trekking spot, with a monastery to contemplate in, lakesides to camp at, and ethereal views to take in.
The ideal trekking season in Bhutan is from late September to mid-November, while the same can be said for March to April. Don't forget to bring your hiking boots!
