Overview of Bhutan Snowman Trek

Bhutan is an incredible place gifted with great cultural and natural features. People say a thunder dragon protected the country and its people from trespassers. For generations, Bhutan remained isolated from the outside world. It was to preserve and protect its culture.

Today, Bhutan is the center of attraction for tourists and adventure geeks. Snowman Trek is among the finest among many famous trekking places in Bhutan. You witness pristine mountain lakes and imposing glaciers.

You can see some of the world’s most endangered species. The Bhutan Snowman Trek region is called the Land of the Thunder Dragon. This trek is also considered one of Bhutan’s most challenging and finest.

You will dig and enjoy Bhutan’s hidden and untouched parts and the great Himalayan range. The Bhutan Snowman trek takes 30 -35 days to end, and the maximum elevation of this trek is 5,050 meters from sea level.

Through this trek, you will also get a chance to be close to the culture and traditions of the Bhutanese people. The trail to the Bhutan snowman trek goes through the green grassland. The trail to the snowman trek also goes through many high mountain passes.

You will be shocked to see the beautiful mountain range. It seems scattered, floating above the clouds like islands of snow. You go through high altitudes and extreme and unpredictable weather conditions.

Combined attributes of distance and remoteness make climbing this trek challenging. Throughout the trek, you will notice tiny Buddhist monasteries and secluded villages. Snowman Trek in Bhutan is about nature, peace, high snow peaks, and mountains. It has welcoming people.

Bhutan Snowman Trek Difficulty

The Snowman Trek is the most difficult and probably the highest in Bhutan. This route is only for trekkers who have experience trekking different mountains. It is also the most extended trek. This trek combines the most incredible treks: the Chomolhari base camp and the Laya Lingshi trek.

Walking at such a high altitude might be problematic for many people. Beginners should only trek snowman trek with proper and complete training. You should also be physically strong for this trek. You can exercise daily, doing yoga, swimming, or going to the gym.

It would help to increase your physical strength three months before this trek. During this trek, you must cross nine passes above 4500 meters from sea level, which might take a lot of work for many trekkers.

This Bhutan Snowman Trek also goes through the Drukgyel Dzong and Paro. It is the third highest mountain in Bhutan, Jhomolhari, at 7314 meters. Winter in the snowman trek region is very extreme and challenging to trek. Because of this, the snowman trek is mainly closed during the winter season.

This trek is not for beginners. You will need to have some trekking techniques and experience before this trek. It is also not for solo and family trekkers. There must be five people in a group for this trek.

The Bhutan Snowman Trek itinerary is very long, and few people are fit for it. However, the trek will refresh your mind and soul and connect you with the peace of nature. The Bhutan snowman trek is a small world where you can drown without resurrection.

Bhutan Snowman Trek more information

Currency

The Bhutanese currency is called The Bhutanese Ngultrum, commonly known as Nu. The Bhutanese currency is equal to the Indian currency. Trekkers can change the world’s major currencies, like US Dollars, Sterling Pounds, Euros, and even the cheques in the Paro airport and banks or hotels.

Bhutanese Ngultrum is a closed currency, so you can only exchange money after arrival. There are different hotels and banks on the trek where you can exchange your currency, but we recommend you take the local currency (Bhutanese Ngultrum) on the trek.

Remember that the shops or hotels in Bhutan do not accept cash economy and credit cards. Suppose you carry a credit or debit card for an emergency fund during the trek. You must ensure that you can use your card abroad.

Trekking Bag Weight

While trekking in foreign countries, you must know how much you can carry your luggage. The luggage limit in Bhutan for trekkers and travelers is 15 kg. This weight would be more than adequate for your needs during the Bhutan Snowman Trek trek. The airport staff weighs your trekking bag before you leave the country at the airport.

If your trekking bag is overweight, you must take out some of the bags. While packing for the Bhutan Snowman Trek, you must put all your equipment in the trekking bag. You can carry your personal belongings like passports and visas in your hand.

Bhutanese etiquette

People cannot take pictures inside any monastery, temple, or dzong throughout the country. However, you can take photos in the courtyards. When visiting temples or religious sites in Bhutan, walk clockwise. According to the locals, it is the best way.

It is disrespectful to point fingers at any sacred or spiritual object. The Bhutanese government has imposed a 200% tax on those who smoke at the airport. Then, they will get a permit to smoke. They will take you into custody if you smoke without a license in public areas or trek Dzongs and Monastery.

Food and Drinking Water in Bhutan

The Bhutan Snowman Trek is very long, so you must carry some energy bars. Dried fruit and nuts are also considered a good energy source for your body. Also, carry energy drink powder and water purifying powder during this trek. It would help if you did not worry about the food during this trek, as plenty of hotels are on the way to the snowman trek.

Remember to eat healthy and energy-giving food throughout the entire hike. You should also not worry about drinking water because you can buy water anywhere on the trail or at the hotels. We also suggest you bring reusable water bottles on the trek to reduce the use of plastic.

If you get a reusable bottle, you can fill it and carry water. Drinking water during the tour helps to hydrate your body, and you can quickly adapt to the weather conditions of the snowman trek. Besides, please avoid stiff drinks like alcoholic beverages. You might need to drink safer in high-altitude places.

Important information

This trek holds a lot of challenges, but once you reach the destination, it will be worth it. We will provide you with a trekking guide. You will need a day-to-day update on the weather and temperature of the snowman trek. Various reasons might delay your flight, so you should make your tour flexible. Always carry ash with you, as many hotels will not take cards.

Most Asked Questions by Travellers

The Bhutan snowman trek is impossible during winter due to freezing weather. But there are two main seasons for trekking in Bhutan: snowman trek, spring, and autumn.

The spring season starts in March and continues until the end of May, and the Autumn season starts in mid-September and ends in November.

Weather and temperature remain best for trekking during these times of the year. The trail to the snowman is accompanied by blooming rhododendrons and pine trees. Precipitation is also significantly less during the autumn and spring seasons.

It is expected to get sick while traveling to a different country. Your body might not adapt to the weather or atmosphere of a new place. When trekking in a higher altitude place, like the snowman trek in Bhutan, the chance of getting sick is even higher.

However, our team above the Himalayan allows sufficient time for trekkers to acclimate during this trek. We also provide guidelines or ways to avoid diseases.

We have a connection with the hospitals or medical services in Bhutan, where we can take you in times of emergency. But we would arrange a helicopter evacuation if you seriously fall sick during the trek.

The Bhutan Snowman trek is well facilitated. However, you will need to compromise on some things. As this trek passes through Bhutan’s remoteness, you will not have many facilities there.

For example, you might not be able to charge batteries for your electrical device, so you should carry a power bank as an alternative. Camping requires you to cook your food and sleep on the camp, which is uncomfortable.

We have just come back after the challenging trekking from Bhutan. The snowman Bhutan trek is arduous as we must cross the many high passes. There are some remote regions in Bhutan and only some comforts. But the experience and satisfaction are extraordinary.

We are delighted with the trek. The logistical organization for the tour was outstanding. We had the best tent and very hygienic meals provided by the crew. They make sure that everything runs smoothly.

Thank you, Above The Himalaya, for the best trip ever. We always remember you and your support and encouragement for this trek.

We went to Bhutan for a snowman trek for a month trip. It was a challenging trekking, but we are delighted we did it, and this is the trip of a lifetime. We wanted to do this trek for a long time, and we made it. Our trekking guide and other crew were excellent.

The food was delicious. The atmosphere during the hiking was so peaceful, making our minds so fresh. You will only meet a few trekkers in Bhutan, and we only see each other and our guide. Our guide was attentive and did his best to ensure everything went smoothly. This trek is our lifetime memorable trip.

The trekking guide and crew looked after us and ensured everything was in order. This trek is for you if you are looking for a tour-rewarding adventure. You will get some of the best Himalayas views with the unique flora & fauna. You meet lovely local people and learn their culture.

Book your Bhutan trek with Above The Himalayan. You will have the best time!
