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

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 ...

Presumably this refers to the Base Camp or one of the number of treks through Base Camp. Though the mountains in Bhutan are now off limits, Jolmolhari was first climbed in 1937. However you see it, at 7326m, Jolmolhari is impressive, whether viewed from an airplane, from Chelela or from up close at Base Camp.

Beautiful snowcapped mountains, holds one spell - bounded. Its a must visit if you are in Thimphu. The entire area is charming and especially in the month of December when we were there, it was amazing.
