The Snowman trek is the most difficult trek in Bhutan, because one has to walk and camp at high altitude
for nearly three weeks. As long as one has no problems with the high altitude and the weather is good, it
is not a particularly difficult trek. The Snowman Trek is an extension of the beautiful Laya Gasa Trek, and
leads from Laya into high altitudes of the Bhutanese Himalayas. It takes tough and enduring trekkers into
the Lunana region and further on to Gangkhar Puensum and Bumthang or down to Sephu in Trongsa
district, depending on which route you choose. The Snowman trek leads through the most remote areas
up to very high altitudes. Trekkers have to camp in altitudes above 5,000m more than once, and
depending on the seasonal temperatures, the camps are sometimes on snow. This trip offers a rare
opportunity to visit one of the most isolated communities in the world. The Snowman Trek is frequently
closed because of snow and is almost impossible during winter. The recommended season for this is
mid-June to mid-October.
