Druk path trek is one of the classic and finest treks to be done in Bhutan in a really short time. Following a traditional trading route and overseeing the high mountain passes, the trek connects the valleys of Paro and Thimpu. The amazing view of the rhododendron forest, alpine yak pastures, and breath-taking landscapes with the snowy peak in the background will leave you wonderstruck. The trek takes you above 4000m altitude while following an easy trail. The route is inhabited by the Bhutanese people and there are wonderful lakes with clear water that will make your soul sparkle from within. Druk path trek gives you a mesmerizing view and amazing memories as you walk through the serene trails.

The trek has 9 days itinerary which starts from Kathmandu. After taking a flight to Paro, we finally start our trekking. We walk uphill through the apple orchards and pine forests to see the old fortress which is now a museum called Jele Dzong (3490m) from where you see an amazing view of Mount Jomolhari (7326m) to the north. The view is going to leave you astonished. In the next 4 days, we climb along with different passes including Phume La (4210m) and see clear lakes, yak and yak herders, and the spectacular view of the Himalayas in this region- Mount Jomolhari (7326m), Mt Jitchu Drake (6662m) and Gangkhar Puensum (7570m). We settle in campsites in various locations near lakes which will give you an opportunity to explore the people and lifestyle en route. Our final destination will be through pine forests as we walk to Phajoding monasteries leading to Thimphu, the capital city of Bhutan. The trek is recommended to be done from February to June and September to December to experience the most of Bhutan.
