Tour Details

Drukpath is one of the most popular treks in the country. It passes through a gorgeous natural landscape of blue pine forests, high ridges, and pristine lakes while at the same time offering the opportunity to visit some ancient Lhakhangs, Dzongs, and villages.
The Druk Path Trek is also a fairly easy hike to undertake as the distances between rest camps are fairly short. The trail takes you through forests of fir, blue pine, and dwarf rhododendrons at altitudes ranging between 2400-4200 m. On the third day, hikers will arrive at Jimiling Langtsho Lake, whose crystal clear waters are home to gigantic trout.

This trek also offers stunning views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, one of the highest unscaled peaks in the world. The best times to embark on the Druk Path Trek are between March – June or September – November.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival at Paro

Your flight to Paro will offer you beautiful mountain views. On this flight the views of Everest, Kanchen Junga, and other Himalayan peaks, including the sacred Jumolhari and Jichu Drakey in Bhutan are awesome. On arrival in Paro, our guide will receive you and check you into your hotel. After lunch, we will see the rich history of Bhutan exhibited in the 17th century National Museum. The Paro Dzong, a massive fortress built in the 17th century now houses the monastic body. A tour of this beautiful Dzong will introduce us to the unique aspects of Bhutanese Buddhism. A lovely stroll downhill from the Dzong over an old cantilever bridge wraps up an eventful first day in this magical kingdom.

Day 2Excursion to Tiger's Nest

Taktsang or the tiger’s nest temple is the most revered temple to the Buddhists. This magical temple clings to a vertical granite cliff 800m above the valley. Legend has it that in the 8th century, Guru Rimpoche, a tantric master flew here on the back of a tigress and meditated in a cave around which the temple is built. A hike to this temple will take up most of our morning. In the afternoon, we will host a special Buddhist prayer ceremony at the beautiful 1200 year old Kyichu Lhakhang Temple, to bring us good luck for the rest of the journey.
