There are two versions of the Jomolhari trek, Jomolhari Loop Trek being the shorter version.
Jomolhari Loop Trek starts from Drukgyel Dzong at the head of the Paro valley and on the first day takes you on a gentle ascent through terraces of millet and rice, climbing midst blue pine and fir, to Shanna Zampa at 9,348ft/2,850m.
The next day is a tough walk with an ascent of around 2,460ft/750m punctuated by many sharp, short descents. In places, you walk close to the river while other sections have you negotiating rocks as the trail climbs through oaks and rhododendrons and then through a rich forest of birch and fire till you reach Thang Thangka (11,808ft/4,100m). This is a rolling alpine meadow with the majestic Jomolhari peak looming at the valley head. It is 19km to the splendid viewpoint and camp at Jangothang (13,448ft/4,100m)- crossing the river, rock-hopping along a muddy track past a couple of settlements to get here.
The next day or two are usually spent at this camp, acclimatizing and drinking in the magnificent views of Jomolhari and Jichu Drakye. There are several half-day hikes from here that take you to other vantage points with breathtaking views.
Trekkers taking the Jomolhari Loop Trek return via a different scenic route, camping close to 13,120ft/4,000m for two nights, before joining the trail at Shana Zampa.
