Druk Path Trek

This 6 day trek is a relatively short, moderate trek that takes you through a natural landscape of blue pine and fir forests, high ridges and unspoiled lakes. You start from Paro Valley and end in Thimpu Valley by crossing a chain of mountains that divides the two valleys. The lakes en route boast crystal clear waters and are teeming with fish. From the lush valleys to dense forests you will get to visit many temples and dzongs (i.e. medieval fortresses).
