Snowman Trek: Bhutan

We had an absolutely fantastic time. The countryside in Bhutan is so pristine and we really enjoyed the remoteness. It certainly was physically challenging and it was a credit to the two leaders that all 10 clients completed it safely.

Bhutan High Trails via Laya

A superb trek into the heartland of Bhutan. We follow forest trails and appreciate the wide variety of rhododendrons and other spring flowers as we ascend to our camp beneath the sacred peak of Chomolhari. Suitably inspired we cross a series of high passes (each in the vicinity of 5000m) and camp in alpine meadows beneath a constant backdrop of snow capped peaks. Yak herder encampments and isolated settlements provide an attractive cultural perspective to our trek, while time in Paro and Thimphu provide further highlights to this outstanding itinerary.

A truly challenging and remote from other tourists trek with a great leader and team. Bhutan is worth the extra $s.
