Snowman Trek

SNOWMAN TREK

This trek is one of the toughest in the world because of its altitude, distance, climate and remoteness. Lunana region of Bhutan is one of the most beautiful landscapes in the world and one which is least visited. It is common that many do not finish the entire trek for which reason we have developed a plan that will help anyone complete the entire distance in 18 days by including the first three days as acclimatization period. During the acclimatization period a trip to Taktsang Monastery and sightseeing and cultural tours are planned. Your experienced guide will help you set the needed pace for each day of the trek. Careful planning for each trek to the Lunana region includes our expert local guide, horses, cold weather equipment, and a cook. Your guide are well experienced to handle any emergency situation should there be a need.
