The Jhomolhari trek traverses yak farms, ancient villages and high alpine meadows bursting with wild flowers. This journey will take you deep into the heart of Bhutan’s rich history and culture. Bhontela Pass at over 16,000 ft. is the highest point on this trek. At the pass, hang prayer flags with your Buddhist crew. And be prepared to be amazed while stepping back in time!
George Leigh Mallory, on the 1921 British Everest Expedition, described Chomolhari or Jhomolhari as “astounding and magnificent”. It is a sacred mountain revered by the Bhutanese. The Jhomolhari trek will allow you to experience rural Bhutan. The thick forests, the remote villages, the high pastures and interaction with Bhutan’s villagers are aspects only trekkers are able to experience.
The Jhomolhari trek is a camping trek where you will be sleeping in tents. Instead, if you want an active trip with hikes daily but would prefer NOT to sleep in tents, do check our Walking Bhutan program.
