Sacred Chomolhari Trek
The trek to Chomolhari is a sacred trek.
In Bhutan, people look at the mountains
as some sort of divine power. In
Bhutanese, Chomolhari is pronounced
Jumolhari and means the heavenly deity
of animals. The nomads in that region
will not allow any climbing on that
mountain. They believe that the deity
could be upset and their yaks, sheep
and other livestock might perish. We
recommend this trek for alpine flower
lovers in the months of June to August.
The only disadvantage is some mountain
rain. By the 2nd week of July, the
monsoon catch up on the mountains and
the rain will become heavy and can be
On this spring trek, however, travelers
can enjoy the fascinating Paro Festival
before heading out into the mountains.
The festival celebrates spring in Bhutan,
as well as Guru Rimpoche, the teacher
who brought Buddhism to Bhutan.
