Druk Path Trek

The Druk Path Trek in Bhutan is a short trek with scenic views, leading the traditional mule route between Thimphu and Paro, crossing mountains and teeming with lakes filled with giant trout at 4000 m. The trail leads through thick alpine forest, dwarf rhododendrons at 3590 m, and rare Rheum flowers. It passes through high pasture lands used by yak herders for summer grazing, offering opportunities to interact with them, learn their culture, and enjoy nature’s beauty. The trek features Tsalu Ney, a 14th-century Lhakhang temple, Phajoding Monastery, and Thujidrag Goenpa. Clear weather offers stunning views of Mt. Jumolhari and Mt. Jichu Drake (6989). The highest point is Phume La Pass (4210 m), offering a breathtaking view of Gangkhar Puensum, Bhutan’s highest mountain. The trek ends at Phajoding Monastery, offering a clear view of Thimphu.
