This trek is recognized by enthusiasts as one of the toughest treks in the world because of its altitude, distance, climate and remoteness. Our journey through the Lunana region of Bhutan takes us to one of the most beautiful and least visited areas on earth.
While it is a very demanding trek that requires determination, we have developed an itinerary that will help anyone who has a good level of fitness complete the entire distance in 18 days. We have included acclimatization (first 3 days in Bhutan), rest days, and cultural experiences along the way. Our experienced guide will set the pace required for each day.
