Chele La Pass - Review
Tuck yourselves in your warm clothes for this one; you’ll be able to feel the temperature drop as you gain altitude over the course of your two-hour thickly-forested drive from Paro. In winters, you will come across waterfalls, frozen rivers, alpine flowers and snow on the way to the pass.
The Chele La Pass is one of the highest vantage points in Bhutan, from which you can marvel at commanding views of the surrounding snow-capped mountains and valleys while the Himalayan yaks grazing in the horizon, dotted with electricity pylons. A 2-hour drive from Paro takes you to one of the highest vantage points, Chele La Pass. A botanical paradise, you’ll also be able to spot sacred mountains Jomolhari and Jichu Drake as cascades of wild roses, purple and yellow primulas and swathes of deep blue iris drape the forest floor.
At a height of 3,988 metres, the Chele La Pass is not to be underestimated – chilly and windy, try and make it here before packed in your warmest clothes for some of the most gorgeous views to be had in Bhutan.

Chele La Pass, Paro Reviews
Great place for an outing. Also an easy place for anyone to reach to the treeline within a short walk from the highway. Many beautiful high altitude flowering plants also can be seen.
Heavenly place. But i felt breathing problem as it is the highest point on Bhutans' roads. It is the high mountain pass at an elevation of 3.796m (12,454ft) above the sea level, located in the Paro District of Bhutan. But i just loved the view very much. Wish to go there one more time.
Situated at a height of 13084 ft this mountain pass is highest motorable pass in Paro -Haa Valley route . There is nothing here except hundreds of prayers flag and a board proclaiming that you are at highest pass . Weather plays tricks here all the time. However your biggest price here is a small truck owned by a local selling hot beverages like Soup , Coffee , Tea etc.
Great place Must on once itenary Could also See Tigers Nest from here if weather is clear
Very beautiful way this place.we reached as soon as possible to the pick point but didn't reached to the top just because at that time snowfall had started we are very lucky to seen this.
