Camp with friends but too arduous a journey for aged people. Excellent views of snow capped mountains.

Trekking route to Jhomolhari is one of the most beaten track. Camping at the base of Mt. Jhomolhari is most blissful as the surrounding environment provides serenity, beauty and clean crispy Himalayan air. It was an exceptional experience to enjoy!!!

I was lucky enough to view this snowy mountain first time from Drukyel Dzong and a second time from the Chele La Pass. Simply mind blowing. It was too much beautiful from Chelela La Pass in Paro. And the interesting fact is that this mountain covers with white snows in every season.. Huh.....

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

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.
