The Gasa – Laya – Jomolhari – Lingshi trek is considered one of the most scenic treks in Bhutan. Running along the border with Tibet, the trek offers amazing views of some of the most pristine and unspoiled landscapes in Bhutan. This tour is combined with trekking to the highlands of Laya and Lingzhi where the nomads of northern Bhutan dwell. The trek offers you a variety of trekking conditions such as beautiful mountains with breathtaking views of the Himalayas and takes you through Bhutan’s popular mountain peaks such as Jomolhari and Jichu Drake. Laya is a place in Gasa District which is situated in northern Bhutan. It is a remote place consisting of about 110 houses. The Layaps, the people of Laya, have a unique culture and interesting traditions, that are bound to fascinate you.

We will have a chance to explore the villages of Laya, meet the nomads and pass through a great range of vegetation and wildlife, making it a great opportunity for photographers. We will also trek through the remote semi-nomadic village of Laya with its unique culture, traditions and appearance. Walking among the mountains and lakes is a stunning experience and possibly  the highlights of the journey. You may also come across some indigenous animals such as blue sheep and takins along the trail. In Gasa, we will have a day of relaxation at the hot spring to rejuvenate ourselves.

This tour will also include visiting all the top cultural and historical sites in the western side of the country such as Tiger’s Nest, Punakha Dzong and many more.
