Jomolhari Trek

Trekking in Bhutan can be an entirely unique experience. Beautiful landscape, shared by a traditional way of life and a Buddhist culture is a wonderful finding. Yet Bhutan is one of the most unvisited places in the world. Jhomolhari Mountain on the other hand is one of the least climbed mountains.
