Bhutan’s Chomolhari Trek: What’s it Like?

Mount Chomolhari is the second highest peak in Bhutan at 23,996 feet tall. The 10 Day Chomolhari Trek features high mountain hiking through remote valleys, across high passes and beneath snowy peaks to Chomolhari base camp. Along the way, we will discover sacred fortresses and temples like the sacred Tiger's Nest Monastery which sits on the edge of a cliff. Experience some of the most stunning natural scenery and rich culture and tradition in Bhutan - the Last Shangrila.

This trip begins in the ancient town of Paro, full of richly decorated buildings that house small shops and restaurants. Paro is has many sacred sites with historical monasteries and ruins that dot the landscape.
Unique, colorful displays can be witnessed in traditional Bhutanese festivals.
Ascend to Tatshang Lakhang (The Tiger's Nest), an ancient monastery that clings to a rocky 3,000 foot cliff above the Paro valley. This holy temple is located 6 miles from Paro and the hike takes around 4-5 hours round trip.
Countless varieties of rare and endangered animals live within the Bhutanese forests. You might get lucky and spot the adorable Red Panda.

On the Chomolhari trek, you'll spend 6 days and 5 nights climbing high into the Himalayas, over 16,000 feet through remote villages and forests.

The scenery is endless as we trek between campsites. Accommodations while on the hike are in spacious mountain tents.

There are many sights to see, like The Great Buddha Dordenma.
In Bhutan, chili is not a spice; it's consumed like a vegetable. A traditional meal here is not complete without a whole bunch of you guessed it, chili peppers. No worries, we will prepare meals that suit the western palate if required.
After the trek, you have the opportunity to tour Trashi Chhoe Dzong - a beautiful Buddhist monastery and fortress in Thimphu.
