Chomolhari TrekThis is a superb ten-day trek for strong walkers. Starting from Paro it goes into northern Bhutan to the land of yak-herders and to the base of Mount Cholomhari (7,316 meters / 24,000 feet), which is the most holy mountain for the Bhutanese. From there the trek goes on to remote Lingshi Dzong which once guarded the frontier with Tibet . This trek offers fabulous views of the mountains including Chololhari, Jitchu Draake and Tsheringkhang mountains besides stunning Himalayan scenery and exceptional flora. You will encounter many yak-herders with their hairy wards and their camps but few villages. The maximum altitude gained is 4,900 meters (16,000 feet).
This trek can be done from April to November but the best months are April, May, October and November.
