The Snowman Trek - the Hardest Trekking Adventure in Bhutan

The Snowman Trek in Bhutan is one of the hardest high altitude treks with an incredible trekking experience. Suits best those who wish to take the great challenge of trekking in Bhutan. 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 backdrop of the Himalayan peak, we will witness a land unchanged for hundreds of years.

This Snowman trekking crosses dozen of 5000 meters high passes. Thus completing a traverse of the northern border with Tibet and thereby seeing all the unnamed as well as unclimbed 7000 meters 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.
