Summary

 

Jomolhari Trek II is the shorter and the milder version of the two trekking routes. This one is popular among the majority of trekkers. The trek is especially for those trekkers who want to avoid high altitude. The trek takes you through a diversity of fauna and flora, from an altitude of 2,500m to about 5,000m. One of the highlights of the trek is that you will be able to have a spectacular view of Mount JomoLhari, believed to be the abode of the protective deity, Jomo.
