The Jomolhari Trek is one of the most popular trekking routes for trekkers in Bhutan. Although it is a difficult and strenuous trekking route, one of the main highlights of the trek is to view Mt. Jomolhari from the basecamp, which makes the trek worthwhile.
Besides the view, the natural scenery and the flora and fauna found at elevation heights of minimum 2,500 m and maximum 5,000 m cannot compare to other similar trekking routes. The best season for trekking on this route are the months of June (before monsoon) and September – November (before the heavy snowfall).
