Druk Path Trek

Duration: 10 Days   |  

Druk Path Trek is a relatively short and moderate trek leading from Paro valley to Thimphu valley, or vice versa, and crossing the chain of mountains that separates the two valleys. The route passes through sparsely populated places. One of the interesting features of Druk Path Trek is the presence of beautiful lakes en route teeming with fish. Also, this area is particularly famous for spectacular rhododendron forests that run riot in the month of May. The best time for the Druk path trek is March to May and September to November.

Druk Path Trek is one of the finest short treks in Bhutan. Leading through an ancient trading route, over high mountain passes, it connects the valleys of Paro and Thimpu. The trail passes through spectacular rhododendron forests, alpine yak pastures and beautiful lakes stocked with snowy mountain trouts.
