In November its cold and windy and a must see place to visit for trekkers and non trekkers. Good spot for photography. Road side tea stall is available. For Budhists this is a holy place for...

This is Bhutan's highest peak in the Himalayas & considered sacred - you can only see it from a distance or go to a Jhomolhari base camp as you cannot climb the peak. Our guide pointed out this peak to us from both Chele La Pass and Drukyel Dzong and, possibly because the weather was very fine on that day,... More

One thing I love about Bhutan is that they take pride in their natural beauty and try to preserve the environment. This part of their national culture and their GNH. This park is gorgeous and it is not crowded with tourists and people littering all over the place. It is worth getting out of the cities for a few days... More

Having done quite a few trekking holidays, this particular trek is definately the most arduous. Despite timing the trek in supposed dry season, it was still extremely cold and wet causing the trek to be extremely muddy (the horses on the trek doesn't help) adding difficulties to elevation and altitude. Waterproof shoes and mud guards are highly recommended and if... More

The Jhomolhari 2 Route is a great 6-day trek, we were led by a great guide and his crew including horseman from Etho Metho Tours&Treks. Wonderful people who were looking after us very well. We were pushed close to our physical limit, but hey we passed middle age. No doubt this is a bit of a challenge at any age.... More

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!
