Haa Sagala Trek

Haa Valley Sagala Trek


Traversing the mountain trail that separates the two western valleys of Haa and Paro, this 3-day trek is one that exceeds all expectations. The trek starts in Haa, a beautiful valley where people rear cattle and grow wheat, potatoes, barley and millet. Haa borders Sikkim and Tibet and it was opened to tourism only in 2004.

On a cloudless day one can see breathtaking panoramic views of Mount Jomolhari (the second highest peak in Bhutan) and Mount Kanchenjunga (the third highest peak in the world). The trail takes you through alpine meadows dotted with shrubs, flowers and through forest of pine, juniper and rhododendrons.
