 |Trekking in Bhutan -  Druk Path Trek|

Duration: Maximum - 11 Days

About This Trek:
This short 5-day Druk Path trek goes from Paro valley to Thimphu (or vice versa), crossing a chain of mountains that separates the two valleys. Although there are v very few villages to see, there are wonderful lakes teeming with fish at 4000 meters (13,000 feet) and spectacular rhododendron forests that bloom in May. In clear weather there are magnificent views of the high Himalayan peaks.

The Druk Path trek can be done in all seasons, but the best times are from October to November and March to May. Bhutan's best short trek. Although this is a short trek, it still goes to high altitude at an elevation of 4210 meters / 13,808 ft., making it moderately strenuous. This trek with panoramic views of northern Himalayan ranges and sacred lakes with beautiful scenic views of lush green valleys is a paradise for natural lover. Beginning from Paro Valley and entering into Thimphu valley, this trek also offers visits to the monuments of these two valleys.
