We stayed at Tiger's Nest Resort in Paro. On 9 November morning, our Driver took us to a point hardly 10-15 mts drive from the Resort, from where we can have a look at Mt. Jumolhari peak. Wonderful sight as the sky was clear.

We just came back from the Jomolhari trek, going from Sharna Zampa to Dodina. The first 2 days of the trek are nothing to write home about. Lonely Planet writes: "Brace yourself for a long, hard day... made worse by all the rock-hopping to avoid...More

Are you a trekker? Don not miss a chance to visit this spot. Simply amazing. If you have altitude sickness then not recommended. You need to be an experienced trekker.

Hard to describe the trek to Jhomolari and Zoya Yaksa. The flowers, birds, people, and everything about the area is amazing. A life time adventure into the real Bhutan.

I completed a 7-day trek on the Jomolhari loop from Shana to Thimphu. The trek is through majestic and beautiful valleys, across fast-flowing, glacier-fed rivers on wooden plank bridges. We battled searing sun, icy winds, snow and treacherous ascents and descents taking us from around...More

Jhomolhari peak is a sacred peak for the Bhutanese people and if you visit the chelela pass on a clear day, you can actually see this peak.

On a wonderful sunny day you could actually spot the Jumolhari mountain from Paro Drugyel Dzong. Further the best to spot the mountain is to go for Jumolhari Trek, where you will camp on the base of Jumolhari Mountain on the second night.

We did not go for the trek. It was only from one end of PARO City we could see the peak. There are many reviews on the particular Trek.

I think it is too risky. A child of 2 years cannot express the symptoms of high altitude sickness. Medical care in this area does not exist. Wait for awhile the mountain is not going anywhere. A 4 year old might enjoy it... More
