Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek

Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek is a 16-day long package that takes you into the tour of Punakha-the ancient capital, the historic Gasa fort and the famous Gasa hot popular spring. We will pass through settlements whose inhabitants are nomads who live almost exclusively on products of paper and products of sheep and yaks. Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek will lead you to an upstream along the Paro Chu where lies the old caravan route to Tibet through the Seo Valley deep in the shadows of Mountain.
Herds of rare Tarkin- the national animal of Bhutan can be seen en route to Tashi Jathang valley. In Lingshi exists a striking ruin of frontier fortress. Lots of colorful fishes dwell in the lakes in Seo Valley. Laya lies in the region of mountain Masakhang which is the source of Mo Chu flowing through Punakha.
Joining in Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek will acquaint you with the people of Laya who are an ethnic group and totally different from the rest of the Bhutanese people. You will thus get a keen look into natural wonders and cultural marvels of the Kingdom of Dragon through Bhutan Laya Gasa Trek.
