9 days Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek

Overview

Dagala Thousand Lakes Trek is a short trek, starting near from Thimphu to a large number of beautiful high altitude lakes. It is the only trek in Bhutan that offers you mesmerizing views of the entire Bhutanese Himalayan range as well as Kanchenjunga (the world’s 3 rd highest mountain situated in between Sikkim-Nepal. It is also not that popular like other treks in Bhutan. Very few trekkers prefer it. The first two days of the trek is a bit difficult, it’s an uphill climb. However, the view en route is worth the climb.

Moreover, you will see plenty of beautiful high altitude mountain lakes during the trek and this is the reason the name of the trek is given Dagala thousand lakes. But, about existing of 1000 lakes at Dagala area there are conflicting opinions from person to person. An elderly horseman of Dagala area heard from his parents that there were actually 105 lakes in the area; some stories say that there were more than 1000 lakes in the past.
The trek has mainly two routes, either at Talakha Gompa; Serbithang; Wangdi; Dochu La; Daga in Dagana; ending about 2 km south of Chhuzom near Lebchi. This route was formerly used by people who came over from the south, from Daga, to bring cattle to Thimphu for selling. It was ,in fact , a cattle migration route. However, the track is still well established even now.

But, in this proposed itinerary our trek starts at Geynikha after two hours drive from Thimphu and ends at Simtokha from where you will be picked up by our driver and transferred to Thimphu. The highest point of the trek is 4300 meters at Labatamba. Both routes are rarely traveled nowadays. Trek from Gur to Labatama involves a lot of climbing and is, therefore, pretty challenging.

During the trek you will visit some of the most picturesque lakes, fishing and relaxing. You will visit several villages en route to experience about village life in Bhutan. Although this is a sort of strenuous trek, it is well worth your effort to enjoy the tranquility and beauty of natural landscape that you will never forget during the journey.
The best time to embark on this trek is between April-June and September –October.
