The trek starts with a short drive from Paro to Thimphu and then to Genekha from where we will commence our trek. In order to trek in this route, one requires a food fitness in order to cope up with altitude acclimatization. Further, previous Alpine experience will be a plus point. The route that we will pass through is particularly rich in bird species, alpine flowers and attractive meadows. The tour also visits the green lush valley of colorful Paro, explore around the tiny capital – Thimphu with visits to monasteries and temples like Ta Dzong, Rinpung Dzong, Drukgyal Dzong etc. You further pass through terraced paddy fields and through coniferous forests, to the settlements of Genekha. The trail leads up the ridge and across meadows to a pass at 4,240 meters with a spectacular view of the whole Dragala range. You will pass through several yak herders camps en-route the broad Labathama valley at 4,050 meters. The lakes are flourished with brown trout. Near the lakes is a mass of wild alpine which flowers in September. The routes are not well marked; it is more of a cross-country traverse.
