Druk Path Trek in Bhutan

Bhutan
8 Days7 Nights

Event Overview

Druk Path was an important trading link between Paro and Thimphu, crossing the chain of remote mountains that separates the two valleys. This is a relatively short, moderate grade trek leading from Paro valley to Thimphu valley, or vice versa, and crossing the chain of mountains that separates the two valleys. The route passes through sparsely populated places. One of the interesting features of this trek is the presence of beautiful lakes enroute teeming with fish. This scenic trek across the mountains separating Paro and Thimphu passes through blue-pine forests, alpine lakes, and dwarf rhododendron forests. The best time for this trek is March – May and September – November.

Punning Dong is one of the most impressive Dongs in Bhutan. Built in 1644, the original name is Rinchen Pung Dzong which was shortened and means the fortress on a heap of jewels. Some of the scenes from the film Little Buddha were shot here.
