Start and end in Paro, the "Jomolhari Base Camp Trek" trip is a guided trekking tour that takes 12 days. You will travel through Takshang, Jangothang, Thimphu and 6 other destinations in Bhutan. "Jomolhari Base Camp Trek" is a small group trip which includes accommodation, meals and others.

The finest short trek in the Himalayan Kingdom of Bhutan to the base camp of Jomolhari. If you are seeking a relatively short but rugged high altitude trek with ample time for unique cultural insights, then the Jomolhari trek is the perfect choice. Beginning beyond Drugkyel Dzong at Shana, in the picturesque Paro Valley we enter the stunning rhododendron forests and weave our way up the valley crossing and recrossing glistening glacial streams. Eventually the landscape opens up to grassy meadows and leads us to Jangothang where we camp below the sacred peak of Jomolhari (7314m). Continuing toward the Nyile La (4700m) we are treated to views of the startling Jichu Drake (6794m) and Tshrim Khang, before making the gradual crossing of the Pass with views of the Lingshi Dzong perched high on a hill top. The most difficult day of the trek sees us crossing the 4950m Yale Pass before descending to the Thimphu River and the Bhutanese capital of Thimphu. This is a relatively short but challenging trek that offers mountain views generally reserved for much longer treks.

“The Chomolhari Base Camp trip has been one of the most organised holidays I have been on with World Expeditions. The Bhutanese guides and support team were fantastic and they anticipated all the needs of the group. The hiking was well paced and the guides Sonam and Rinzin did a great job ensuring everyone made it over the high passes - for some, slowly but surely and we never felt rushed. The scenery and camping grounds were well selected and surrounded by beautiful forest and always the ever present sounds of the glacial rivers. Tents were always ready when we arrived at campsite and it was pure heaven to have a rug and proper pillow provided in each tent - was very impressive! The whole Bhutanese team worked very cohesively together and we all felt we were well looked after. The food was fantastic as usual.”

“I can't thank you enough for the outstanding service and experience that you and the entire WE team provided! The leaders were superb--kepts us dry and everyone was in very good spirits throughout. The extra day in Thimphu at the sacred dance festival turned out to be a highlight for everyone, so the schedule change was not a problem. We had a great hotel the extra night off the trail and everyone loved having hot showers a day early.”
