It would be nice and it is an ideal that Bhutan can connect with more than two neighbours. Rent or lease the part of the land from india in order to be able to connect the chinese bullet train system at Nepal from the west side. By south side allow Bhutan connect with Bangladesh to have a river joined harbour for import and exporting. What Bhutan have in hand for bargain are the fresh water supplying line to India...... be wise as I mentioned from long time. Good luck.

Our guide took us outside of Paro to take in the view of this snowy peak in the distance worth the short drive

If nothing go for the calmness and serenity. Experience the quietness and 'hear' the silence that surrounds everything. Peace!

One of the most exciting treks in Bhutan. Maximum altitude you reach is 5000mtr. It is a gradual increase in height. 6-7 days depending the speed.
Jhomolari peak is very beautiful and almost 3rd highest peak of Bhutan. It is illegal to climb the peak but you can go till the base camp for magnificent view of mountain!

This is located near the Tibetan border. You have see this as you travel to Drugyel Dzong. Behind is the Tibet and land of Bhutan.

We stayed at Tiger's Nest Resort in Paro. On 9 November morning, our Driver took us to a point hardly 10-15 mts drive from the Resort, from where we can have a look at Mt. Jumolhari peak. Wonderful sight as the sky was clear.

We just came back from the Jomolhari trek, going from Sharna Zampa to Dodina.

The first 2 days of the trek are nothing to write home about. Lonely Planet writes: "Brace yourself for a long, hard day... made worse by all the rock-hopping to avoid mud holes." This is pretty accurate. Ponies are used for hauling gear, and as a consequence, the trails on the first 2 days or so are a mess of mud and pony poo.

We spent Day 3 at the Jomolhari Mountain Festival. It was interesting to see the dancing and singing and to talk to some of the Bhutanese who had set up tents with presentations about their research on mushrooms, organic farming and snow leopards. We also did an acclimatization hike to two lakes at the top of a ridge and that was very pretty. We also got great views of Jomolhari

Day 4 and 5 were spectacular. The views are incredible, and we were lucky to have clear skies and gorgeous weather.

Day 6 was pretty. We hiked along a river in a rocky canyon and camped at Ta Gume Thang instead of the regular campsite at Barshong.

We told our guide that we wanted to combine day 7 and 8, Barshong to Dodina. This was very fortunate as after about an hour of walking through the forest, the trekking trail disappeared. It had been completely ripped out by excavators in preparation for the construction of a road to Barshong. We walked down this muddy, dirty road with broken trees for about 3 or 4 hours. At one point, we passed the excavators actively working. It's too rough for cars to drive down at this stage, and was a pretty disappointing way to finish the hike. We were very glad that we had opted to combine the last 2 days as we would not have wanted to spend another whole day on this terrible stretch. Also, the campsite for Day 7 was right next to the road construction and would have been awful to stay at.

Our guide told us that this has been ongoing since May, but there is no information about this on the Bhutan tourism website. Also, we wish that our guiding company would have suggested a different trek for us.

I would strongly advise anyone considering this trek to choose another option until the road construction is finished, at which point it will probably be a 6 day hike finishing with pickup by car at Barshong.

Are you a trekker? Don not miss a chance to visit this spot. Simply amazing. If you have altitude sickness then not recommended. You need to be an experienced trekker.

Hard to describe the trek to Jhomolari and Zoya Yaksa. The flowers, birds, people, and everything about the area is amazing. A life time adventure into the real Bhutan.

It was an amazing trekking to Jhomolhari base camp! Not the easiest (6 nights/7 days), but really beautiful and we had an amazing crew that took care of every detail, including a shower tent!! We had the privilege of staying 2 nights at the camp and enjoyed a trekking up to Jhomolhari... Unforgettable experience!!!
