Lunana Snowman Trek          

A Surreal Trek of Immense Magnitude Along the Border Between Bhutan & Tibet

The Bhutan-Snowman Trek is arguably the toughest trek in the world. Being conscious of the fact that Mountain Kingdoms have been successfully operating this trek for 2-3 decades gave me a high degree of confidence in their professionalism and ability to succeed. The Western Leader was well qualified, constantly engaging, and made sound decisions when necessary in conjunction with the Bhutanese Sirdar (e.g. postponing a rest day to avoid a bad snowstorm crossing the highest pass). He kept abreast of the group's progress including, importantly, the back markers, as well as the morale of individuals, which helped to maximise our teams’ chances of success. Whilst seemingly a small contribution, he took the trouble to carry chocolate bars to give us a welcome boost on conquering every high pass - much appreciated by all. The Bhutanese crew (including pack animal herders) were universally excellent and besides great meals, provided fantastic support to every one of us. Also not resting on their laurels, this was the first commercial Mountain Kingdoms group to trek the new exit route out of Lunana (across the mountains between Sake-la and Maurothang), featuring a truly memorable couple of days in unspoiled wilderness. It was somewhat fitting, that crossing the final high pass, the Chachi-La, we had the most amazing crystal clear views of the Eastern Himalayas along the border with Tibet, including the infamous Gangar Puensum, the highest unclimbed mountain on the planet. All our prayers came true that day. Put in perspective, the photos that we took that day were completely cloud-free, unlike many of those in the guide-books! Sincere thanks for an experience which I will never ever forget.

Very Professional

It is difficult in a few words to express how pleased we were for the very professional way the entire crew and Harry in particular treated us. We could not have wished for a better guide and crew. Everything was very professionally handled. We felt very safe and well treated by everyone.

Wonderful trip

This was a wonderful trip - very well organised and expertly run. The route to Bumthang was inspired - giving us a bit of extra challenge, hot springs and something a bit different to boast about.

Seamless organisation

All organisational aspects were seamless and there seemed to be a real empathetic understanding of the cultures we visited. Mountain Kingdoms guides know their stuff and are dependable leaders.

Well-planned itinerary

The thing I appreciated in you offering this trek is that you had the intention to do the complete trek and add quite a lot of extra days for bad weather etc. The other groups doing the trek were a lot more stressed to get things done.

Beautiful & remote

You use the best local trekking company, with reliable staff, to enable us to enjoy one of the remotest and most beautiful treks in the world. The extra rest days included in your itinerary allowed the leader to sit out the snowstorm and later to split a long day to the benefit of us all. All this in marked contrast to other groups trekking at the same time as us.

Absolutely magical trek

The trek was brilliant, Bhutan absolutely magical. I feel privileged and proud to have got around in one piece as it was the hardest sustained physical thing I have ever done.
