Haa Valley Pilgrims in Bhutan

Haa Valley Pilgrims in Bhutan Overview

Haa Valley Pilgrims is a six day Himalayan trek in a remote region of Bhutan. There are superb views of high peaks including Mount Chomolhari and Mount Kanchenjunga. We walk with Buddhist pilgrims to the sacred lake at Nub Tshona Patta.

Haa Valley Pilgrims trek follows a trail used by pilgrims up to the Nub Tshona Pata lake. We cross high passes with spectacular views of Mount Chomolhari (7,134m) and Mount Jitchu Drake (6,900m). We also see the third highest peak in the world, Mount Kanchenjunga at an elevation of 8,586m. 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. Other shorter camping treks in Bhutan include Druk Path and Kitiphu Ridge. In Haa Valley we visit the Lhakhang Karpo (black temple) and Lhakhang Nagpo (white temple). They are among 108 monasteries built in one day during the 7th Century by a Tibetan king, Songtsen Gampo.
