This trek is recognized by enthusiasts as the toughest trek in the world because of its altitude, distance, climate and remoteness. At the same time, the Lunana region of Bhutan is one of the most beautiful areas of the world and the least visited.
Though many do not finish the entire trek, we have developed a plan that will help anyone complete the entire distance in 18 days. We have included acclimatization (first 3 days in Bhutan), rest days, and cultural experiences that will refresh and encourage you along the way. You do not have to be brave, you just have to have to be determined. Your experienced guide will help you set the needed pace for each day of the trek.
