Snowman Trek (Gasa/Laya to Bumthang)

In this version of the Snowman Trek, the first half has been removed reducing the time to just 16 days of actual high mountain trekking with some rest/acclimatization days mixed in.

This portion of the trek is highly remote and mostly done with yaks to carry the equipment.  Mobile phones no longer work in this area and instead the guides will carry satellite phones.

All packages can be customized. We can easily add extra days to the end of any package that you find on this website. Removing days is usually very easy to do as long as the driving or the treking is still possible. Some of the teks have two days in a row of descent and sometimes, if you are fit enough, we are able to skip a camp or two.
