One of the most popular treks in Bhutan, Bhutan Druk Path Trek, is a short and scenic trek passing along high lands, through windy ridges; past ruined forts which were long ago use to guard against Tibetan invasion.

The Druk path trek passes through the trails that lies amidst the dense Rhododendron forest which when blooms in spring, gives the passing trekkers sensation of walking in a paradise. There are beautiful lakes teemed with fishes on the way. The trek is further complemented by the panoramic views of majestic Himalayan ranges.

The trek initiates from the Paro with visit to the ruins of Drukgyl fortress, Takshang view point, National museum and cantilever bridge over the Paro River. The trail then passes through Jele Dzong and then up through the pine forest to Jangchula. Hiking uphill through the Rhododendron forests the trek then reaches to Jigmelangtsho from where we can enjoy the view of majestic Himalayas.
