This is a long and challenging trek travelling to Lunana a remote and rarely visited region of the Eastern Himalaya. Far more people have climbed to the summit of Mount Everest than completed this unique traverse of Bhutan.


This is a 35 days trek crossing the north of Bhutan along the border with Tibet covering 356 km and crossing eight Himalayan mountain passes. Very few westerners have ever visited the remote district of Lunana due to its inaccessibility; one can only get in and out by crossing mountain passes over 5,000m that are frequently blocked by snow. Our itinerary completes the full journey starting in Paro and finishing near Bumthang.
