This eight day trek starts from Drukgyel Dzong, Paro (2,580 m) and ends at Dodena, Thimphu (2,600 m). It is one of the fabulous treks, which passes through scattered villages and farmland into pristine and verdant forested valleys, to the land of yak herders, where the yaks can be seen grazing and lumbering across the beautiful sloping hill sides. Camping at Jangothang is superb and one can catch a breath taking view of Mount Jhomolhari.
