Overview

Straddled between Bhutan and Tibet is the "Mountain of Goddess" known as, Chomolhari, which is 15,977 ft above the sea level. It is known to be the Goddess's mount as the community of locals and Buddhists believe that it is the very place where one of the Five Tsheringma Sisters live. It is also pronounced as Jomolhari and provides an escape from the stressors of daily life. The stay at Basecamp will provide you a holistic beauty of the whole range. From various other peaks to fascinating forests and from grassy landscapes to the chilly glaciers, you'll have a thrilling and peaceful time.


The trek to the mount's peak is a peaceful and moderate one. You'll be first made to acclimatize. We'll start the trek from a crumbled ancient monastery, Drugkyel Dzong. You'll further climb amidst the farming pastures then into the wilderness, blurring soon with the meadows. You'll smell the aroma of juniper and rhododendrons, from where we will reach the Jomolhari Base called, Jangothang, from where we will trek towards the Tsho Phu, where you'll walk along the twin lakes and ascend to Bonte La, which can be called one of the most beautiful valleys of the region. Lastly, we will move to pass Thombu La, ending through the actual path and reaching back to where we started the trek from.
