Bhutan Jhomolhari Circuit trek is a 14 days program in the Kingdom of Bhutan.  Program is a combination of exploring the historical sites of Bhutan  and  trekking up in the beautiful mountains of Bhutan. Highlight of this program is trekking up in the mountain and getting fantastic view of Mt. Jhomolhari and the country side.

Bhutan Jhomolhari Circuit trek provides a great variety of Bhutanese landscape and fantastic view of Mt. Jhomolhari 7,314 m. This trek starts from Drukgyal Dzong, Paro and finishes at Dodena near Thimphu. Bhutan Jhomolhari Circuit trek passes through scattered hamlets and farmland into a deep and richly forested valley, which leads to a high alpine pastureland where yak herders graze their animals. It crosses two high passes from Jangothang and makes its way to the capital of Bhutan, Thimphu.  In the spring Bhutan Jhomolhari Circuit trek becomes more colorful as rhododendrons, azaleas, and masses of wildflowers carpet the high meadows whereas during fall, rice paddies ripen to a golden brown.  You might also have an opportunity to see the blue-sheep, Takin and wide variety of birds.

Also Bhutan Jhomolhari Circuit trek  program takes you to some of the important and interesting sites in and around Paro and Thimphu valley.  Here we will be visiting famous Dzongs, Chortens, National Museum and Monasteries. On the list is definitely a visit to Taktsang Monastery, a significant pilgrimage site for Buddhists perched on a cliff.  Bhutan Jhomilhari Circuit trek is a nice program for those who would love to trek in the Bhutanese trek trail.
