Exhilarating trek, but so worth it!

We did the Jhomolhari trek and it was one of the most difficult but most rewarding experiences. This mountain is beautiful and it looks even better next to Jichu Drake. We loved... read more

We did the Jhomolhari trek and it was one of the most difficult but most rewarding experiences. This mountain is beautiful and it looks even better next to Jichu Drake. We loved every minute of it!

I did an eight-day trek with Bhutan Swallowtail Tours through the ancient tracks of the sacred Jomolhari mountain - home to one of the five female protector goddesses of Tibet and Bhutan. We reached the height of almost 5000m at Bhonte La pass, where the view of the jagged snow capped Himalayan mountains was breathtaking. Wonderful memories of the sights... More

The only way you get to see Mount Jomolhari is to walk in, so be prepared to do the hard yards to get there. It's a reasonably tough 3 day walk in, but ever so rewarding. The scenery is awesome, the achievement wonderful. Mount Jomolhari has spiritual significance to the Bhutanese, and in any case mountaineering is banned in that... More

This hotel has received really good reviews in Lonely Planet but it us highly overrated. We stayed during the festival which is extremely busy so keep that in mind. Staff was very friendly but the rooms are lacking the charm we saw in hotels we stayed at in Paro and Gangtey. The room was clean but a little tired. We... More

The mountain is the source of the Paro Chu (Paro river) which flows from the south side and the Amo Chu which flows from the north side. The mountain is sacred to Tibetan Buddhists who believe it is the abode of one of the Five Tsheringma... More

My third trek to Jhomolhari Base Camp was wonderful. There is a 'but'. The first time my husband and I took this trek it was a day longer - this is because a road has since been carved up towards the mountain to obviously make life a little easier for those who live in this fairly remote valley. The other... More

This can be seen either from the Base camp or from Chele La (pass). Sometimes, in clear sky, it can also be seen from Drukgyal Dzong of Paro.

Trek was tough due to mud and horse droppings , tenting in snow and ice and Horses not pleasant ! Best to trek in Nepal and stay in Guest houses but get comparable Himilayan views ... Wonderfully friendly genuine generous people in Bhutan . Art and culture worth the visit but not trekking ...
