Jigme Dorji National Park Amazing Scenery in the Mountains. We trekked the Jomolhari Base Camp Trek with the 3 passes in high altitude. The Scenery was simply amazing! Highly recommend! T.

I don't know why people visit this place. The one and only thing worth seeing over here is the National Animal of Bhutan. Other animals and birds can't be seen. There were a couple of ladies who were weaving scarves which was surprising to see. Nothing much otherwise either.

Definitely a place to visit for the lovers of nature - silence, pure air, trekking, and all this with this magnificent mountain view.

Forest and streams are plentiful in Bhutan, but this one is easy to reach from Thimphu. There are some lovely monestaries and walks to do of various lengths depending on time. Worth a visit and good to take a short drive there.

We were on our way to the gasa hot springs and drove a long journey in this national park. We drove all the way there but skipped the hot springs as the facilities was lacking in privacy. There were many awesome views in the mountain with clouds embracing the hill tops. A pity we didn't see the national animal there... More

We were here for birding but anyone who lives nature should visit this while on a visit to Punakha. No entry fee. No offices. No guards on petrol all the time. You feel that you are in the thick forest, not in a park which has some human intervention although a constructive one. A river, mountains, a great bird life,... More

Not much to see... What we can see was only their national animal which looks like a cross of wild himalyan goat and donkey. No provision for food or drinks which is a sheer disappointment. Plus there was some construction going on which made place a bit messy,

It appears some reviewers are confusing the 4300 square kilometer National Park with the tiny Takin Preserve/Zoo located in Thimpu. I’m going to focus on the park. We entered this area as part of our 7-day Jomolhari trek. The foot trail follows the Paro Chhu/River and was overall easy to navigate. There are plenty of wooden bridges to assist in... More
