Druk Path epitomizes Bhutan, the Land of Dragon Kingdom. This trek allows us to have access to the remote areas of Bhutan where we can witness the Alpine Lakes and the fascinating Himalayas. It is basically a short, moderate grade trek executed between the two beautiful valleys, viz. Paro and Thimpu that necessitates you to cross the chain of mountains separating them. This12 days’ trip catapults you to the lap of the nature and subsequently ends your quest for a well furnished cultural trip to Bhutan. The visitors can witness the rich culture of the Bhutanese people. Lively Rhododendron forests will greet your eyes throughout the trek. The route encapsulates the Phadjoding monastery, which is also one of the major tourist attractions in Bhutan.
The Druk Path Trek is also a fairly easy hike to undertake as the distances between rest camps is fairly short. The trail takes you through forests of fir, blue pine and dwarf rhododendrons at altitudes ranging between 2400-4200 m. On the third day hikers will arrive at Jimiling Lake, whose crystal clear waters are home to gigantic trout.
This trek also offers hikers stunning views of Mt. Gangkar Puensum, the highest unscaled peak in the world. The best times to embark on the Druk Path Trek are between March-June or September-November.
