Itinerary

 Day 1 – Thimphu ( 2375 ) to Kibchen ( 3710m)                                                       After breakfast, we drive to Genekha - Geney zampa in the car, the drive is approximately 2 hrs from Thimphu. The trek starts from Geney zampa (2850m) and takes about 4 to 5 hours to reach kibchen. From Geney zam the trail climbs steeply and gradually becomes steady, traversing through beautiful oak forest.  The trees are draped with lichen. Along the trail there are old stone step and resting places.  At (3200m), after 1-1.5hrs climb, passing a cattle gate, a group of prayer flags on a rock outcrop appears. This is Dhophu jasey Dhokha (view point) with a nice view of the valley and surrounding mountains. The trail becomes less steep, skirting around the hillside through a big birch forest that gradually gives way to bamboo. After leaving the forest the trail can be seen ahead, cutting up the hill. Ascend through ferns and flowers such as edelweiss.  We reach at camp Kibchen. From here we can see sun rise.

 

Day: 2—Kibchen(3710m) to Labatama(4280m) 

Today you have to hike around 4 to 5 hrs to reach our camp Labatama. You gradually climb up through thick Rhododendron shrubs and thick oak forest till you reach Pagalaptse pass (4170m) from the pass, one can see beautiful views of the Genekha village and a portion of the Paro valley, including some rocky peaks. Moving along, soon one can see two stone houses below at wataching  (4100m), a good place to stop for lunch, sheltered from wind or bad weather. Herders keep sheep, horse and yaks in the area. After wataching traverse around a ridge and through a small valley, climb up to a small saddle, and then descend into a broad main valley where there are quite a few yak herders’ huts. The valley has no proper name, but is commonly called Labatama. At the bottom is a beautiful big flat campsite (about 4280m)

 

Day - 3 Labatama ( halt )
You can visit several lakes and enjoy a good fishing day in the lakes or go to Jomigue pass and climb Aum Jomo till the summit (5050m) which will take about 5-6 hrs.

Day: 4 Labatama(4280m) Pangkha(4030m).   

Walking distance is 4 to 5hrs. Today after having breakfast, start climbing up the grassy ridge to reach a trail. The trail to jomo peak now follows an easterly direction between some rock faces. There is two route a) lower route and b) higher route. It is better you chose higher route because from higher route you can see the beautiful view of lakes. Climb to the western side of Lake Sherbho tsho/Dajatsho and cross a saddle at about 14’760ft/4500m. If the weather is fine you should be able to see Jumolhari and Kanchenjunga. After the saddle the trail descends steeply to another lake at 4350m, passing several herders’ camp. It rejoins the lower route at about 4160m near a stream called Dochha chhu.  Walk past a very nice campsite below the trail (Pangkha) looking northwest in the far distance, Jili Dzong is visible, the first camp site on the Drukpath trek when starting from Paro. Talakha peak 4278m can also be seen, the climbing destination for tomorrow.

 Day: 5 Pangkha(4030m) to Pangsebhu(3830m).                           

The sun climbs over a ridge behind camp, appearing about 07.30hr in autumn. It takes 4 to 5hr to reach the camp. Climb to a pass at 3960m indicated by several large cairns. Four trails meet here: your own from the south; to the east to wangdi (see below); to the north Talakha Gompa; and to the west just below the ridge, reaching another crossing point leading to Serbithang and Zamto. Climb a steep slope to a yak herders place, next to an enormous ruin at 3980m. Climb into a valley to the top of a ridge at 4185m. Where the path leaves this ridge the locals call this Jili la; other sources call it Tale la. The pass, which is decorated with prayer flags, gives a full view of the Thimphu valley.  On a clear weather one can see stunning views of the Himalayas, including Kanchenjunga 8586m, Jomolhari 7315m, Jichhu Drake, Tsheri Kang and in the east the mountains of Lunana. It is another 20-30min climb to Talakha Peak 4300m with an even better view.

Day: 6 Pangsebhu (3,830m) to Thimphu.       

Today’s trail leads through dwarf bamboo bush, further goes into Oak trees with sloppy landscape, with views of Chamgang valley and Talkha Goempa (monastery). Far into the valley one can see beautiful view of Thimphu, Wangchhu River and the nets of roads. It takes 3 to 4 hrs  to reach the road side, where our representative will be awaiting to have you escorted to hotel.
