Laya-Lingzhi-Gasa Trek

Laya-Lingzhi-Gasa Trek

Laya Lingzhi Gasa Trek is one of the most interesting treks in Bhutan compared to the other tougher treks. There is no better way to feel the heartbeat of a country than through trekking. You’ll come across hidden villages; have impromptu meetings with yak herders and the very finest views of the towering Himalayas. Laya Lingzhi Gasa Trek is an extension of the Jhomolhari trek and takes you to a maximum elevation of 5005m above sea level. One can have the most enchanting views of the mountain ranges taking you through diverse flora and fauna, including a good opportunity to spot the blue sheep. You can also see the national animal, Takin and blue poppy, Bhutan's national flower. Chances of spotting snow leopard are rare but not impossible. Yaks will be accompanying you through most part of the trek. This trek continues towards the east rather than turning towards Thimphu valley. It takes you to Laya village at an altitude of 13,000 feet where you will see the unusual culture of Layaps. A days halt at a natural hot spring in Gasa will ease you of your body aches and pains after a long trek.
