The trek to Chomolhari is a sacred trek. In Bhutan, people look at the mountains as some sort of divine power. In Bhutanese, Chomolhari is pronounced Jumolhari and means the heavenly deity of animals. Believing that the deity could be upset and their yaks, sheep and other livestock might perish, the nomads in the region will not allow any climbing on their mountain.
For trekking, spring and fall have the clearest weather, but if you are an alpine flower lover, consider the months of June to August. After mid-July, however, rain is more frequent, so there is a bit of a trade-off between flowers and showers.
