Our final day in Bhutan was magical. We drove to Chelila pass in the morning through snow covered forests. The birds were there to greet us-blood pheasant, Magpie, Kalij pheasant,Nut cracker and many others. Horses of all hues were also enjoying the scenes.It was an exhilarating experience and my friends left their foot prints on the snow to mark their presence.

I loved coming here and just taking in the beautiful views. We came here 1st thing in the morning, and there was not another tourist in sight, which made the experience even more relaxing.

We were driven to the lady monastery retreat nearby for a visit and then hike foe about 1.5 hour to this pass where our minivan tour waits for us. Unique view and experience, windy and chilly. But be careful if you have high altitude sickness.

Chele La Pass, is a half day trip from Paro. We had kept aside one day to go to Chele La and then proceed to Haa valley. But the day we were to go, it had snowed there the night before so our driver, said lets drop it. Because I had never seen snow, I requested him to take us till the spot where he is comfortable driving and I'm so glad we did. Driving through freshly snowed pine trees and beautiful mountains that look like a yummy vanilla ice-cream and chocolate sauce concoction, it was beyond dreamy. The road to Chel-La pass is the highest motorable road in Bhutan, so you can only imagine the view at up-top. And though we were only there for a very short period as the temperature was hitting a minus 6...it was by far the highlight of our trip

The Chele La Pass, situated at an altitude of 3988 metres (13083 feet) above MSL and at a distance of about 36 kms from Paro Town on the Paro-Haa highway is a must visit place in Bhutan for all tourists, who can withstand the bitter cold and the breathlessness at high altitude. This pass is the highest motorable road in Bhutan separating two valleys Paro and Haa. The journey through the road, covered with snow was very exciting and memorable with fantastic views on either side. As the sky was clear during our visit, we could see the most sacred mountain peak of Bhutan, Jumolhari , having an altitude of about 22000 feet above MSL. We did not see any human habitation in that area. Only a mobile Fast food/Tea/Coffee/Snacks vehicle was seen stationed there to cater to the needs of the visiting tourists.

Must visit for the tourists, with all the scenic beauty surrounding the pass. Surely a chilling place with cold winds blowing the place.
