About Bhutan Chomolhari Trek
Chomolhari is Bhutan's deeply venerated guardian peak. It rises on the Tibet-Bhutan border near the major trade route from India into Tibet's Phari Valley. In 1939, from a pass above Phari, F. Spencer Chapman, the mountain's first climber, saw Chomolhari and it's companion peak, magnificent Jitchu Drake. "Chomolhari gives a greater impression of sheer height and inaccessibility than any other mountain I know", he wrote in Living Dangerously. "It drops in a series of almost vertical rock precipices to the foothills beneath. It is thought by many to be the most beautiful mountain in the whole length of the Himalaya."
