Why to visit Jigme Dorji National Park

Jigme Dorji National Park contains some of the most stunning scenery in the world, including glaciers, snow-capped mountains, and gorgeous lakes, in addition to amazing biodiversity. In addition, the park has several excellent trekking paths that take you through some of Bhutan's most memorable landscapes. The national park is well connected by road and is located 122 kilometres from Thimphu. 

The trail runs through thick, verdant Cypress forest ranges. On the trip, you'll see a lot of birds, butterflies, and animals. Climbing up the mountain and seeing the gorgeous pure landscape and snow-capped mountains is an unforgettable experience in and of itself. Many significant treks pass through here, including the Jomolhari Trek, Snowman Trek, Lunana Trek, and Gasa-Laya Trek. The hiking track in Jigme Dorji National Park is not very challenging; rather, it is moderately difficult.

This is Bhutan's second-largest national park. The park covers a large area of 4316 square kilometres, as evidenced by its height range of 1400 to 7000 metres. Threatened fauna species like as the clouded leopard, Bengal tiger, Himalayan blue sheep, Himalayan black bear, and many more native and exotic species of flora and fauna are among the park's main attractions.

Special Tip

Carry a vomiting bag with you because altitude sickness causes a lot of vomiting. Do not disturb the animals and birds; otherwise, they may become aggressive. Also, the entrance fees to this park is BTN 150 per person approx.
