Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek

The Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek is a picturesque trek that starts from nearby Thimphu and continues through coniferous forest while crossing beautiful high-altitude lakes. Golden and brown trout flourish in the turquoise mountain lakes, which are scenic because they are surrounded by many types of alpine flora and wildlife. In the spring, there is also an abundance of flowers, and many different kinds of blue poppies are in full bloom. Enjoy an amazing vista of the great Dagala range (4240 m), travel through meadows where wild asparagus and other small plants flourish, and stop at a yak herder’s camp where you’ll have the chance to get to know the locals. The trek culminates with a steep descent through a rhododendron-shrub-filled mixed forest.
