The Snowman Trek

The Snowman trek in Bhutan is one of the hardest high altitude treks, but an incredible experience for anyone who wish to take the great challenge. Trekking into the remoter northern Lunana region is to step back to the 7th century when Buddhist had just reached the land. Passing Buddhist monasteries and small villages on the back dropped of Himalayan peak, we will witness a land unchanged for hundreds of years.

This Snowman Trekking crosses dozen of 5000 meter high passes, thus completing a traverse of the northern border with Tibet and thereby seeing all the unnamed as well as unclimbed 7000 meter peaks. Bhutan’s pristine landscape, wonderful people, fascinating Buddhist culture, turquoise- tinted lakes and high altitude wildlife like snow leopard and blue sheep round out the trek’s highlights.
