The challenging 10-day Jumolhari trek begins gently at Drugyal Dzong, winding through rice paddy terraces, apple orchards, and forest, and gradually becomes more demanding. You will see a variety of landscapes on this trek, including pastureland, conifer forests, canyons, and rivers. The highest point will be Nyile La (pass), which is 4,890m. Throughout the trek you will have some spectacular views of the high ridges and snow-capped mountains of the Himalayas. You may see the winter homes of the yak herders, as well as some yaks, blue sheep, and musk deer.
Really appreciate YANA's professional organization of the entire trip. Could not imagine how a trekking trip could such be well organized - more or less like a 5-star hotel with the only difference of we were at more than 3,000 above sea level. Special thanks to Yeshey and the chef who had given tons of assistance when I was descending due to attitude sickness. - Simon Liu, Hong Kong
