The Chele La pass at 3988 m; is the highest motorable road in Bhutan. At a distance of around 30 km from Paro it takes around a hour and a half to reach. The last 10-12 kms are quite rough; although the scenery that awaits...More
Though Chele La Pass at 3998 mtr in Bhutan is the highest motorable pass, but the spot is a let down as view of the snow clad Jomolhari mountain is marred by tall transmission towers.
Nevertheless, the drive to the pass from Paro & then...More
When we started from our hotel in Paro, the temperature was comfortable, we did not not need any heavy sweater. However, with the long winding journey going up the hill side temp started falling. By the time we reached the pass it got covered with...More

The roads in Bhutan can be quite treacherous. The trip to Chelela on the east side is less so, while the decent into Haa is a bit more hair-raising. It takes about 80-90 minutes with a local driver to get to the top and there was some construction going on In late-March. If you decide to drive plan on taking it slowly, especially on the turns.
