Snowman Trek I

This version of the Snowman Trek follows the classic route (Snowman Trek I) as far as the remote village of Thanza before striking off along a little-used trail towards the village of Duer in Bumthang. The trek passes close by Gangkhar Puensum, at 7,546m (24,750ft) the tallest mountain in Bhutan as well as the tallest unclimbed mountain in the world, and the remote Duer Tsachu hot springs. At the springs, weary travelers have stopped for centuries to enjoy the waters' health-giving powers — even Guru Rinpoche is said to have stopped for a soak here.
