This trek is like an exploration of remote and unsullied northern Bhutan where yaks far outnumber the people who live within its rugged topography. This trek offers the opportunity to sight Blue Sheep, Griffons, Snow Leopard in their natural surroundings and the Blue Poppy, which is the national flower of Bhutan.
The trail passes through sub tropical and alpine landscapes and mountain passes with stunning views of Mount Jomolhari, Jichu Drake and Tsrim Khang.
This trek also offers the opportunity to get a close view of the Layaps, a nomadic community that lives in this region and rears yaks.
