The Druk Path trek takes in the most varied and beautiful sections of an ancient high-level mule trail which winds its way through the mountains between Bhutan’s two main towns of Paro and Thimphu. This trek will take you through thick alpine jungles, beautiful pine trees, various rhododendron trees and spectacular lakes. Incredible views of valleys, lakes, green Himalayan mountains and Himalayan snow capped mountains are the order of the days throughout the trek. You will also see some of the mighty Himalayan ranges like the Gangkar Phuensum, and mount Jhomolhari. Being on top of the mountain, sunsets and sunrises are absolutely beautiful and mesmerizing.
Upon arrival we will hike to Bhutan’s most famous cultural attraction, the soaring Taktsang Monastery, also known as the Tiger’s Nest. Perched, seemingly miraculously,on the side of a sheer cliff-face, and decorated with brightly coloured prayer flags, the striking gold, red and white temple represents the unique culture, architecture and spirituality of Bhutan.
