Trip Overview

The adventure Snowman Trek is an extension of the beautiful Laya Gasa Trek, and leads from Laya further into the high altitudes of the Bhutanese Himalayas. This trek is considered to be one of the most difficult in the Himalayas. It covers the distance of 356 kilometers (221 miles), crosses eight passes, several of which are over (5,000m), and stays at an average altitude of (4000m). This trek goes to the remote Lunana district and considered as the most challenging trek in Bhutan. The attributes those make it a tough trek are; distances, altitudes, weather and remoteness. The Snowman trek is frequently closed because of snow and is almost impossible during winter. The recommended season for this trek is mid June to mid October.
