Dagana and Lawagu La in Bhutan

Dagana and Lawagu La in Bhutan Overview

This is a remote trek in the Bhutan Himalaya to explore the hidden valley of Dagana. We cross the Lari Gang (4,267m) and Lawagu (4,427m) passes and have views of Mount Kangchenjunga, Chomolhari and Jitchu Drake.

Dagana and Lawagu pass trek explores a wilderness region of South Bhutan. It is very rarely trekked by other groups. This trek travels through deep forest and the high altitude zone near Thousand Lakes trek. On the Thimphu side, we hike through open rolling hills through Dagala range up to Lawagu pass (4,427m). Once we have crossed the pass we descend into the forest where we see trees, flowers and animal life. We continue through forest to the end point at the rarely visited Dagana village. We will visit their impressive Dzong. This is a camping style trek where you sleep in a tent for every night of the hike. All treks in Bhutan are camping as there are no lodges like in Nepal. We include several days in this itinerary visiting Bhutan’s main cultural sites. Before the trek we explore Paro Valley and after the trek, Thimphu.
