Chele La Trek nature trek rated as moderate to hard is an adventure suitable for those who wish to experience high Himalayas within a short span of time. Commencing from the Haa Valley, it passes through high mountain pass to Paro with amazing views of snow-capped mountains and spectacular views of valleys beneath. The highlight of the trek is the highest Kung Karpo at an altitude of 4350m once used to be famous sky burial marked by stone cairns.
Your trek begins in the Haa Valley (2670m) through an unpaved motor road for less than hour keeping yourself on the left side of the villages. Taking the trail on the right side of the village, you will climb up gradually through yak herders camp till you will be met by two different trails. (The trail towards the left that goes to the summer yak herding camp and to the border of China is to be avoided). We take the right trail to make your final climb towards your camp at Sagala (3,150m).
