Join our Soi Yaksa Trek package and enjoy trekking in one of the most biologically diverse environments in the world. This enchanting trek takes you to the base of Mount Jumolhari, one of the highest levels of Bhutan treks, the second highest unclimbed peak in the world. As you walk along the rugged trails, the hike becomes a walking meditation. This 10 days trek has proved to be one of the best treks for nature lovers offering stunning views of peaks and alpine pastureland. While trekking on part of his BBC Himalaya Adventure 2010, Michael Palin exclaimed, "Farewell big, monumental, Himalayan peaks!" The trek also offers an opportunity to visit remote villages neighboring with Tibet, and learn traditional lifestyles of nomadic yak-herders and highland farmers.
After an acclimatization hike to Tiger's Nest Monastery, the trek starts from Drugyal Dzong. From there you will have a stunning view of 7513m Mount Jumolhari. The initial days of the trek follow the Paro Chhu valley to Jangothang. The remaining days of the trek pass through high pastureland and also through such exotic places like Tshophu Lake (4380 meters) and Takhung La (4520 m). En route relish the startling views of of Jichu Drake (6989m) and Tshrim Khang (6789m).
