Jomolhari trek starts from Paro and takes about 10 days to complete. The highest camp is at an altitude of 13,448ft/4,100m. On this route, the views of Jomolhari’s twin peaks, neighboring Jichu Drake and Tsheringang are peerless (except maybe from Druk flight!). The Jomolhari trek takes one to Lingzhi, up to 16,236ft/4,950m, and ends up close to Thimphu . The difficulty level of the treks is moderate to hard .
The Jomolhari trek starts from Drukgyel Dzong at the head of the Paro valley and on the first day takes you to Shanna Zampa at 9,348ft/2,850m.
The next day of Jomolhari trek is a tough walk to 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.
Those with a quest for more excitement will proceed from Jangothang to Lingzhi, enjoying brilliant views of Jomolhari, Jichu Drakye, and Tserim Kang en route.
The region is isolated but incredibly beautiful and you traverse a large glacial valley with several moraines and climb over a windy pass to your camp at Chha Shi Thang (13,153ft/4,010m). The trail leading to Jichu Drakye basecamp is from here.
The next day of Jomolhari Trek is an arduous and tiring one as you cross Yeli La (16,236ft/4,950m) and descend to Shodu. Subsequently, you have to ascend to Barshong before descending over the last two days via Dolom Kencho to the road head at Dodina which is opposite the bridge legend to Cheri Gompa.
