Druk path trek

Drukpath


This 6-day trek begins from Paro through Thimphu, and back in Paro. It crosses a chain of hills and vales that when looked at from a distance unfolds into an endless pattern of terrains. It stands out as one of the most popular trekking routes in Bhutan because of its close proximity to the western valleys of Paro and Thimphu, and also because local festivals are included in the itinerary. This trail is also best known for its rhododendron blooms and other wild flowers during the spring.
