This 14-day trek goes up to the base of Mount Jomolhari which stands at 7,315m (23,995ft) above sea level. The trek offers amazing views of snow-capped peaks, pristine and lush green landscapes, remote villages, fortresses, alpine meadows (home of Takin – the national animal of Bhutan), blue sheep and yaks, and the inviting village of Laya (Home of the Layaps – People of Laya). This village stands testimony to Bhutan’s unique culture and tradition.
Another epic highlight of this trek is the Gasa Tsachu (natural hot springs) which the Bhutanese believe is blessed by the supernatural power of Guru Padma Sambhava. Immersing yourself in one of these steamy springs is said to cure you of your illnesses and rejuvenate your bodily elements. The trek ends in Gasa. Drive to through the dense forest of Damji to Punakha.
