The Druk
Path

As one of the more sought-after treks in Bhutan, The Druk Path follows a five days’ foot trail that connects Paro and Thimphu and passes through forests, yak pastures and lakes.

From the village of Damchena, a climb through the forest and encounters with yak herders will take you to your campsite below Jele Dzong where the calming sound of monks playing instruments in the Ihakhang during prayer sessions might fill the air. Continung from Tshokam, Mt. Jomolhari and several other mountains and monasteries come stunningly into view. Along the trail are beautiful lakes like Jimilang Tsho and Simkotra Tsho, where locals go knee-deep in the cold water to fish for trout. A rare visit to Phajoding Monastery’s meditation centre might offer some insight into how the monks live and pray.

As the trail takes you up and around the high Bhutanese Himalayas to visit ancient monastaries and isolated dzongs amid beautiful nature and breathtaking views, crossing the chain of mountains that separate the valleys of Paro and Thimphu on foot most definitely is one way to form an instant and intimate connection with the Kingdom.
