The Soi Yaksa trek is a beautiful trek that will take you to the base of Mount Jumolhari. The six day trek will take you to the heart of the Eastern Himalayas, and you will be treated to panoramic views of perennially snow-capped peaks. For the first three days, the Soi Yaksa trek follows the same route as some of the longer and more arduous trekking routes such as the Jumolhari Trek or the Jumolhari-Laya-Gasa trek.
The Soi Yaksa trek is perfect for people that would like to experience life in the high Himalayas. Although largely uninhabited by people, there are a few villages and nomadic camps along the way. If luck is on your side, then you might even come across a flock of blue sheep grazing on the hilltops.
