Snowman Trek-Bhutan

Bhutan, for a long time the Forbidden Kingdom, still limits the number of tourist visiting the country. To protect the cultural heritage and preservation of natural wealth and beauty. It is still the number one priority of the country.

The Snowman trek is considered to be the most challenging trek and of the longest duration in Bhutan. This trek provides an in depth look of the unspoiled and age-old traditional lifestyle of the Bhutanese. It not only high lights the grandiose mountain views and  valleys of the Himalayan region but also the lifestyle of the mountain people living in harmony with nature and the gods. The trekking is 21 days long ranging between altitudes of 3,000 m to 5,000 m.

For the Snowman trek one must be in top physical condition to be able to walk between 8-10 hours at 3,000-5,000 m altitude. Flexibility and patience is required at times especially when one confronts logistic problems arising with yaks and horses. While on trek one is expected not to distributed sweets, pen/pencil etc to the children and villagers also.
