23 Days' Lunana Snowman Trek:

 

Enthusiasts recognize this trek as the toughest trek in the world because of its altitude, distance, climate and remoteness. At the same time, the Lunana region of Bhutan is one of the most beautiful areas of the world and the least visited.

Though many do not finish the entire trek, we have developed a plan that will help anyone complete the entire distance in 18 Days'. We have included acclimatization (first 3 Days' in Bhutan), rest Days', and cultural experiences that will refresh and encourage you along the way. You do not have to be brave; you just have to have to be determined. 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, packhorses, cold weather equipment, and a cook. From the time you arrive you will be cared for and know exactly what to expect. Your guides are also prepared for any emergency that could happen.
