Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek – 6 Days
Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek Details:
This is a short trek, near Thimphu, to a large number of lovely high-altitude lakes. You pass through terraced paddy fields and through coniferous forests, to the settlements of Geynikha, 2,500 meters. The trail leads up the ridge and across meadows to a pass at 4,240 meters with a spectacular view of the whole Dagala range.
You will pass through several yak herders' camps en-route the broad Labatama valley at 4,050 meters. The lakes are flourished with brown trout. Near the lakes is a mass of wild alpine which flowers in September. The routes are not well marked; it is more of a cross-country traverse.
The trail descends steeply through a mixed forest of rhododendron and bamboo, finally dropping through a maze of apple orchards.
