Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek is something that every trekker must take in his life. It is so poignant and brilliant. I totally loved this. WOW can be an understatement. The crystal clear, poignant lakes just give me goosebumps. The pristine lakes are so beautiful that you will forget yourself here. The trek is difficult, but nevertheless it is an amazing and a beautiful experience to say the least. I totally loved this trek and I just still can’t get enough of this trek. The experience would not have been this nice if the planning was bad. Special cheers to the team for handling the organization and planning of this tour in such a beautiful manner. If you are planning to have heartfelt trek, then look no further than here.

13 days of fun: This is the first time I am taking a long trek. I had a lot of fun. It was well organized and absolute fun. The trekking was very beautiful and brilliant. I had such a lovely and nice trek. It was very well organized too. Dagala trek is the only trek in Bhutan which offers the view of all the high mountain peaks of Bhutan including all the famous ones. This can be done as a 6 days one or 13 days one too. It depends on budget and vacation available for us. The flight tickets can be costly it is better if tickets are booked in prior.

This trek was the best trek ever. I had an awesome experience. I totally loved it. I always prefer trekking than instant adventure sports. Lake treks were something that I wanted to take for a long time now. I had a lovely trek recently here in Dagala, and it was indeed a brilliant and an exciting experience. I loved it totally. The trek was super enticing and exciting. As a trekker, I was more than happy about the trek. The trekking is quite tough but good practice at basic training and ample trekking experience or even with good warm ups, you can enjoy the trekking completely. It is indeed a lovely surroundings and landscape too. I guess that goes without the saying.
