This is where the dirt road starts for another hour following Paro Chu upstream through the village of Tshento. Finally reaching by the army check post, where your trekking crew and ponies will be waiting for you. The trek starts with crossing the army checkpost and the river. It is a very rocky series of small ups and downs along the Paro Chu and can be very muddy if it rains.
