Yuksom-Sachen (Dzongri trek starts from today) (2684m)

Our trek starts at Yuksom and will about 6-8 hours to climb the 16 km from Yuksom to Bhakim and to Sachen. The trail undulates through moss laden forests of oak, chestnut, pine, firs, magnolia and rhododendron. It is really a botanist paradise. Here in this forest hundreds of varieties of wild orchids vie for attention with a similar number of different kinds of birds and butterflies.
The trail crosses three side streams over sturdy wooden bridges and then the Prek Chu river before a steep ascent up the opposite bank (which should take about an hour or two). Throughout the whole trek, trails are well-maintained with plenty of switchbacks. Enroute to Bakhim you are likely to encounter herders with their yaks and cows. The last 3 - 4 km involves knee-grinding ascent towards Bakhim and onwards to our rest for the night at Sachen.
