The Jhomolhari Trek, an iconic and convenient trek route in Bhutan, offers breathtaking vistas of snow-capped mountains, including Jhomolhari (7314 m), also known as Chomolhari, “The Mountain of Goddess Chomo.” The stunning peak that divides Tibet from Bhutan also provides breathtaking vistas of other Himalayan ranges. The route gets through magnificent valleys with pear and apple trees in full bloom, towns with fields of rice, wheat, and barley, and apple orchards. Rhododendron, azalea, and wildflower woods, as well as canyons, are all visible throughout the route. The trek also provides the opportunity to see a variety of bird life, including takins, snow leopards, musk deer, blue sheep, and takins. The Jhomolhari trek is especially pleasant in the spring.
