The term “salt route trek” is derived from the purpose the trek served prior to the construction of the national highway from Trashigang to Samdrup Jongkhar. The people of the Eastern Dzongkhags (districts) used to travel via this route to take salt and silk from the border town of Samdrup Jongkhar. This 5 day trek will take you through pristine broad leaved and pine forests with spectacular views of villages and mountains amidst the clouds. Although this nature-based trek route does not lead into really high altitudes, it is tough and involves long steep descents and ascents.
