Snowman Trek, Bhutan
Snowman Trek, Bhutan

The Snowman Trek in Bhutan is often said to be the hardest trek in the world.


It could possibly also be a contender for the most expensive trek in the world too, largely due to the minimum daily tariff that applies to all visitors to Bhutan.


However, if you have the legs and deep pockets too, there's no doubt that the Snowman Trek gets you right into the high, remote and truly wild ramparts of the Bhutan Himalayas.

The Bhutan Snowman Trek is considered to be the worlds hardest trek by many. The Snowman Trek is certainly regarded as one of the toughest treks by Lonely Planet. Bhutan isn't short of tough treks, but we'd not disagree with Lonely Planet.


The challenges of the Snowman Trek extend well beyond the physical. As well as duration there are several very high passes that need to be crossed.


In the winter months it's likely that some, or all of these passes will become blocked.


To the people of Bhutan, their country is known as Druk Yul....Land of the Thunder Dragon.


The Thunder Dragon being the noise made by frequent Himalayan storms that can and do occur throughout the year.


If you're unlucky enough to encounter such storms on the Snowman Trek, it can make all the difference as to whether you push on or turn around.

Chomolhari Bhutan
Chomolhari Bhutan

A relatively short, but challenging Chomolhari trek from Paro to see Chomolhari and Jitchu Drake. Returning via the Bonte La to form a mini-Himalayan circuit. Wild, mountain scenery, atmospheric camps with the odd yak herder or two for company along the way. The challenging Snowman trek passes Chomolhari too.
