Jomolhari Mountain Festival & Trek combines the Jomolhari Trek with an exquisitely themed two-day event celebrated at the base of Mt. Jomolhari by communities located along one of the most scenic trekking routes in Bhutan. The festival celebrates the unique culture of the communities living together with the natural wonders that surround them: one in particular, the elusive, yet elegant, snow leopard!

The festival includes snow leopard themed folk songs and dances performed by the local people, Jigme Dorji National Park staff and the school children, traditional sports such as Khuru (darts), shot put, horse and yak riding, sampling of local delicacies and boutique handicrafts.

This is the ultimate Jumolhari Mountain experience of trekking through inspiring mountainous landscapes and gaining an insight into the unique communities that inhabit these beautiful locations.

HIGHLIGHTS OF THE JOMOLHARI MOUNTAIN FESTIVAL & TREK

The Jumolhari Trek highlights the great diversity that the Bhutanese landscape has to offer, whilst the mountain festival provides an insight into the unique culture of the communities that live together in harmony with the incredible wildlife and natural wonders that surround them. You will pass through thick pine forests, scattered hamlets and alpine meadows that lead to the high pastureland where yak herders graze their animals.
