Chelela Pass at a height of 3988 m overs a bird's eye view of Paro valley and the tallest mountain peak Jhomolhari in Bhutan. In November its cold and windy and a must see place to visit for trekkers and non trekkers. Good spot for photography. Road side tea stall is available. For Budhists this is a holy place for performing religious rights. A sea of flags with prayer scripts printed can be seen fluttering on tall poles. These are planted by those who perform religious rites to cleanse themselves of sins. Locals say the wind blows away sins.

This is Bhutan's highest peak in the Himalayas & considered sacred - you can only see it from a distance or go to a Jhomolhari base camp as you cannot climb the peak. Our guide pointed out this peak to us from both Chele La Pass and Drukyel Dzong and, possibly because the weather was very fine on that day, the white snow-covered peak looked majestic from Drukyel Dzong.

One thing I love about Bhutan is that they take pride in their natural beauty and try to preserve the environment. This part of their national culture and their GNH. This park is gorgeous and it is not crowded with tourists and people littering all over the place. It is worth getting out of the cities for a few days to take in its beauty. I'd highly recommend going during the dry seasons. We went during a wet time of the dry season and it made it pretty hard going. I couldn't imagine going during the rainy season.

Having done quite a few trekking holidays, this particular trek is definately the most arduous. Despite timing the trek in supposed dry season, it was still extremely cold and wet causing the trek to be extremely muddy (the horses on the trek doesn't help) adding difficulties to elevation and altitude. Waterproof shoes and mud guards are highly recommended and if you can join a tour that provides some sort of heating at night, it will make your trip that much more enjoyable. Having said that, the scenery is amazing when you do get a clear day.

Do be warned that the first day of the trek you will see a lot of forestry clearing due to a recent construction of electric power lines to a nearby village. This was quite infuriating at the time as I was expecting the trek to be totally untainted. However, you soon forget that part once you see the surrounding snow capped mountains.

The Jhomolhari 2 Route is a great 6-day trek, we were led by a great guide and his crew including horseman from Etho Metho Tours&Treks. Wonderful people who were looking after us very well. We were pushed close to our physical limit, but hey we passed middle age. No doubt this is a bit of a challenge at any age. We trekked over three passes (4890m, 4520m and 4380m), total length during this week was about 85km.
Visibility was limited on most days, therefore I recommend to consider the months of Feb/March or October instead. Nevertheless, we were lucky enough to view the majestic mountain on two days.
