This park stretches over 4,200 sq km including the western
end of the former wildlife sanctuary. The border has been
brought considerably further south both to increase the
range of habitats from conifer forest to upper broadleaf
formations, and to include in most of the wild animals,
which migrate to lower altitudes during winter.
Endangered species such as takin, snow leopard, blue ship
and pheasants can be found within the park. The area protects
some of the most spectacular scenic locations in Bhutan
including great glacier, deep alpine lakes and the highest
peaks in the kingdom.
Many of the most popular trekking routes pass through this
park including the Jhomolhari, Beautiful Laya/Gasa, Sinchula,
Druk Path and the Lunana Showman Treks.
