Bhutan is known for virgin mountains in the world. Unlike other countries, trekking in Bhutan for real trekkers where we have to sleep in tents. A group of trekking crew, comprised of trekking cook, trek assistants and horsemen will always be with us until the trek ends. Horses are mainly to all food stuff and our luggage. We get hot packed lunch at the half way, which the trekking assistant carries on his back. The crew are always last to start the trek but earliest to reach the campsite.
Jomolhari Trek lasts up to 9 days starting from Paro, ending in Paro and Thimphu. The 1st day and 2nd days are bit tiring but the 3rd day is short but really worth of tiring hikes. On 3rd day, we reach the base of Jomolhari looking majestically towards us. There is possibility to make a halt at the base camp to explore the place nearby.
We encounter sometimes big flock blue sheep and little cute marmots peeping from the holes. Further up the base camp, lies green mirror like lake called Tshophu. If we continue to Paro making it a circuit, there is chance to see Mt. Kangchanjunga (8586) and Mt. Makalu (8485) in Sikkim, India.
