The Druk Path Trek
US $3080

(TripID #NV-00 80)

Trip Overview

The five days’ Druk Path Trek starts from the Paro valley to take you across the mountains that separate the Paro valley from the Thimpu valleys. Durk Path trek is especially spectacular when the rhododendron forests are in full bloom. The pristine lakes, unadulterated natural beauty and the culture that lives in those beautiful places are the highlights of this trek.

You will hike across many passes, most notably the Phume La Pass at an altitude of 4210m/13,812ft. Along the way, you will visit numerous Dzongs. Before setting out on the Druk Path Trek, you can also tour the Punakha valley to visit the stunning Punakha Dzong. You can also take this tour after the trek as well. In good trekking seasons, the spectacular view of the White Mountains under the blue skies will daze you.

Durk Path Trek is an easy trek to undertake. The walks are fairly straightforward and the distance between two camps is short. The trails are popular for lakes and trout fishes. The Jimiling Lake, for example, is a clear water lake with gigantic trout which are equally tasty. Stunning views of Mt. Gangkhar Puensum (7,570 metres/24,836 ft), which is the world’s tallest unclimbed peak mountain, cheer you as you trek the Durk Path.

During the Druk Path Trek trails, you will meet plenty of nomadic yak herders. If you are trekking during the months of April and May, the rhododendron forests will be in full bloom, which will make some of the most splendid views. Durk Path trek can be best done between March- May and September- November. Treks are possible during the off seasons as well but the weather window might not be too kind for the trekkers during those off months.
