Trek into the remote world of the Layaps

Highlights
This is one of Bhutan’s finest treks. The trekking route cuts through dense, lush forests and ascends into lofty realm above tree line, through high mountain passes into a world of snow peaks, glacial lakes, herds of blue sheep, alpine blossoms and home of the hospitable Layaps and yak herders. We skirt the Bhutanese-Tibetan border near the foot of sacred Chomolhari (7315m), the second highest mountain in Bhutan. There are fabulous views of the mountains and exceptional flora. The route also takes you through the therapeutic hot springs of Gasa and finally to the sub-tropical valley of Punakha.
