Overview

About the Activity:

  • Druk Path Trek is one of the most popular treks in Bhutan. It is a short and scenic trek with some great views and beautiful lakes en route.
  • Although it leads up to altitudes above 4,000m it is not too strenuous as walking distances between the camps are not too long.
  • Besides the lakes, it is the Phadjoding monastery that is one of the highlights of this trek.
