The most well-liked hiking routes in Bhutan, the Jomolhari Loop, are lengthier than the Jomolhari Trek. It offers a diverse spectrum of landscapes, wildlife, and plants with altitude ranges between 2,500m and almost 5,000m. The breathtaking view of Mount Jomolhari from Jomolhari Basecamp (Jangothang) is the trek’s high point.
Day 1: Gunitsawa Village – Sharna Zampa
The trailhead for this hike is located in Gunitsawa Village, past the army station. Your trek permit (issued by your trip operator) will be examined and endorsed at the army checkpoint. Near Gunitsawa, the campsite is located on the other bank of the river.
Day 2: Sharna Zampa – Thangthangkha
The trail continues on this lengthy day with numerous minor ascents and descents. The valley finally gradually narrows to a single path that descends to a meadow where a tent will be put up after ascending through the river valley. If the weather is suitable, you’ll get your first fantastic view of Mount Jomolhari from this location.
Day 3: Thangthangkha – Jangothang
You still have a chance to enjoy a fantastic view this morning if you weren’t able to see Mt. Jomolhari the previous evening. The ascent of the Paro Chhu valley, which opens into smatterings of alpine meadow and sparse growths of woodland, continues this morning. Along the route, you’ll pass an army checkpoint and be treated to a breathtaking vista of high mountain ridges and snow-covered summits. Yaks and the dwellings of their herders become a common sight in this region. Another benefit of this day is passing the villages of Soe, Takethang, and Dangochang. You will once again be treated to a breathtaking view of Mount Jomolhari once you get in Jangothang, one of the loveliest campsites in the Himalayas.
Day 4: Jangothang Halt
On the day of rest in Jangothang, there are many opportunities for day treks that offer stunning views of lakes and snow-capped mountains like Jomolhari and Jichu Drake. On the top slopes of the valley, there are excellent chances of seeing some blue sheep. The setting of Jangothang is ideal for your acclimatisation. You can hike nearby or ascend Tosoh by foot. In three directions, there are excellent short hiking routes. There are other unclimbed peaks to the east, Jichu Drake to the north, and Jomolhari and its subsidiary mountain systems to the west.
Day 5: Jangothang – Lingshi
The route descends to the Paro Chhu after passing the last village in the valley. You will ascend steeply up to Bhonte La pass, the highest point of this trek route, at 4,890 m after passing the lake of Tshophu (4,380 m). When you reach the Dhumzo Chhu river, you make your way downstream while passing the few homes along Soi Yaktsa (Dhumzo), and you soon reach your camp.
Day 6: Lingshi – Shodu
At a height of 4,930m, the trail leads up to the Yelila pass. On a clear day, you can see Jumolhari, Tserimgang, and Masanggang very well from the pass. The route descends sharply from the pass to the campsite at Shodu.
Day 7: Shodu – Barshong
Through rhododendron trees and stunning waterfalls, the walk follows the Thimphu Chhu. The trail progressively ascends to the Barshong Dzong ruins as the valley narrows until it reaches the mountains.
Day 8: Barshong – Dolam Kencho
The trail passes through dense rhododendron, birch, conifer, maple, and bamboo forests before descending to the Thimphu Chhu River valley and ascending to pasturelands. A meadow surrounds the camp.
Day 9: Dolam Kencho – Dodena
The trail continues through wooded regions, climbing and descending, and passing via a narrow pass. Along the journey, one can spot langurs, or monkeys. You will leave Jigme Dorji National Park at Dodena and arrive at the roadhead next to a striking cantilever bridge.The journey ends in the stunning Cherri Monastery, a 40-minute hike that is totally worthwhile.
While trekking in Bhutan, a minimal level must be upheld, according to the government of Bhutan. Whether you are a lone trekker or part of a larger group, you will have your own trekking staff, which includes a professional trekking guide, cook, camping helper, and a few horsemen and horses to carry your stuff. All food must be brought into camp and prepared there. As a result, trekking in Bhutan can be a little pricey for individuals and small groups of travelers
