This trek is for average walkers and gives you an opportunity to visit the isolated valleys of Gangtey Gompa/Phobjikha, Gogona and Kothoka. The trek leaves the valley of Gangtey at 2,830m and leads south, then west through the meadows and fields. It then climbs through a mixed forest of juniper, bamboo, rhododendron, magnolia, firs, oaks, spruce, dwarf rhododendrons, miniature azaleas, cypress and juniper. The trail is rough, rocky and weaves through trees where pack animals have created deep muddy furrows.
Gogona is a beautiful hilltop site overlooking a long valley. A 30-minute walk beyond Gogona is a hamlet where you may find homemade ara [local drink]. The women here weave blankets and speak a different dialect called Bjop-kha [language of the nomads].
