Bhutan Druk Path Trek

Bhutan Druk Path Trek is a 54Km and six day long popular Camping Trek in Bhutan. Perhaps the most popular hiking trail from Paro to Thimpu, the capital of Bhutan and goes to High Altitude and is moderately strenuous. The Bhutan Druk Path Trek route initially follows the same route as the Bhutan Snowman Trek and passes through some beautiful High Altitude Lakes, alpine meadows and lush green forest.

The Drukpath Trek is similiar to the Dzongri Trek in Sikkim in terms of scenic beauty and altitude, but is shorter than the Goechala Trek in sikkim. A perfect trek and tour package for a person trying to mix trekking and a cultural Tour of Bhutan at the same time. The best trek route in Sikkim just a little bit shorter than the Jhomolhari Base Camp Trek.

Paro is the starting point of the Drukpath Trek and Timpu the ending Point. The highest point of this Trek is 3800 Meters at Semkotha.
