  • Snowman Trek Bhutan

    From the multitude of treks available in the Himalayas, "Snowman Trek Bhutan" is amongst the few that stand alone on the top. This will be an epic mountain trek with amazing wilderness and culture, an experience of a lifetime ! However this trek is not for everyone. It takes longtime and it is the most difficult trek in Bhutan and therefore in the world. We’ll cross dozen of high passes, many over 16,000ft, as we pass through the highest and wildest corner of Bhutan. If you are the kind of adventurer who wants to push your limits with the most challenging, most remote and most beautiful trek imaginable, then look no further than the snowman Trek.

     

    It is extremely worthwhile objective and you can truly say that you have trekked to the very remotest parts of the world, if you have visited Laya and Lunana region of Bhutan. Snow capped peaks, Turquoise-tinted lakes, high altitude wildlife like the snow leopard, Takin and blue sheep, time-lost villages, meeting with nomadic yak herders round out this trek’s highlights.

     

    Snowman is not an easy trek to organize because of several logistic problems such as arranging the Yaks and porters (especially in Lunana region), having the strong and ethical local Guide and team who has done the trek several times, pre-planning rescue in case of emergencies and providing good equipments and supplies for this long trek. Wind Horse has two guides in the team, who has done the snowman trek several times of the past 10 years and we are proud to have the connection and right equipment required for this trek. Several different ways of doing Snowman trek is listed.
