Snowman Trek

The Snowman trek is one of the most adventurous treks in the world. It is a walk over 5,400 meters crossing four different passes and camping at as high as 500 meters. Strolling 650 kilometers (over 400 miles) in the thick white snow, nothing really will seem impossible after this trek.

This trek can be the most challenging but it can be made easier by starting the trek from Tashithang and trekking the Laya-Gasa trek in reverse and is impossible during winter and a miserable place to be in monsoon. If you plan for this trek late September to mid October is the best time of the year.
