The Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek


The trek derives its name from the many lakes that can be found along the route. In the days of old, the route was used by nomads that would bring their cattle from the South into the valley of Thimphu. This six day trek takes you on a trail that cuts through quaint mountaintop villages and open pasturelands.
