DRUK PATH TREK:
Druk Path Trek is one of the most popular treks in Bhutan. It is a short and scenic trek with some great views and beautiful lakes en route. Although it leads up to altitudes above 4,000m it is not too strenuous as walking distances between the camps are not too long. The trek traverses through Juniper forests populated with alpine flowers. You’ll come across a few houses on this trail and get a sneak-peak into the life of the nomads. Rhododendrons are in full bloom in May and you may also come across
migrating nomads in fall and winter. This trek can be done in all seasons, but the best times are from September – May.
The six day trek which has been modified and made into a 4 days trek is the most popular trek in the country as it passes through a gorgeous natural landscape of blue pine forests, high ridges and pristine lakes while at the same time offering the opportunity to visit some ancient lhakhangs, dzongs and villages.
Drive from the hotel to the national museum from where your hike will start. It’s a gradual easy hike upwards. We come across gravel roads thru farms/blue pines & fir forests and later will come across dwarf rhododendrons.
