Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek

Bathed by the glow of the austere Himalayas, the picturesque Laya Gasa trek offers an excellent trail for exploring Bhutan’s spectacular treasures, particularly the view of Jumolhari, the sacred mountain. A part of Bhutan’s enigmatic cultural heritage and its traditional communities live in the distant regions of Laya and Gasa.  On this particular trip, your exploration of Gasa and Laya reveal rare portions of remote forests and hills as well as the sweeping views of the vast stretch of untouched land where only a handful of nomadic tribes remain today. The trek begins near Paro and it leads you to the views of spectacular panoramas of Jangothang and then wends your way to the charming rural village of Laya, where, weather permitting, you can admire the captivating light radiated by the soaring snow towers of the Bhutan Himalayas.
Taking one of the most intriguing landscapes in Bhutan we walk into Gasa village, where the idea of modern and global, fades, and a stark natural world stares back at you.  We’ve selected the most evocative portions of this region as your journey; from the alluring valley of Paro to the mystical views of Gasa, a hidden corner of Bhutan that comes alive with scenery that discloses Bhutanese natural heritage.
