Itinerary

The Jomolhari Trek

The Jomolhari Trek (also known as the Snow Leopard Trek) is one of Bhutan’s finest, most varied and fascinating Trek.

This route offers a great variety of trekking conditions, from picturesque farmland and forests to alpine pastures and high passes. Culture and scenery rolled into one.  Campsites nestle beneath some of Bhutan’s most impressive peaks, including Jumolhari and Jichu Drake, isolated Dzongs and scattered settlements such as the remote high altitude village of Laya.

  This is a camping trek where tents will be ready and waiting each day.


The itinerary simply covers the trek so perhaps explore Bhutan further or unwind post-trek in one of the kingdom’s sublime luxury hotels from Uma, Six Senses or Aman.

Day by day

Day 1

Paro - Shana 2890m - 17km - 5-6hrs

Drive to Paro to start your trek from Drukgyel Dzong (2580m). The trek starts with a short downhill walk on a wide trail. The trail climbs gently through well maintained rice terraces and fields of millet. The route later enters an area of apple orchards and forests. Soon the valley widens, and you reach the army post of Gunitsawa (2810m). This is the last stop before Tibet. The trail continues up to 2870m, just beyond Sharma Zampa, where there are several good camping places in meadows surrounded by trees. (Driving up to this point on a farm road is also possible but it is best to walk to acclimatize).
