  • Description :
    This is one of Bhutan’s most popular treks and takes you to the base of Mt Jomolhari (“Mountain Goddess”) at Jangothang. Apart from the scenic beauty of the trek, it will offer you an opportunity to interact with the people of Lingshi and get to know their life styles.
    Jomolhari is the source of the Paro Chu (Paro river) which flows from the south side and the Amo Chu which flows from the north side. The mountain is sacred to Tibetan Buddhists who believe it is the abode of one of the Five Tsheringma Sisters; female protector goddesses (Jomo) of Tibet and Bhutan, who were bound under oath by Guru Padmasambhava to protect the land, the Buddhist faith and the local people.
