Snowman Trek, Bhutan
Encompassing almost 200 miles, the Snowman Trek is known throughout the adventure community as one of the most challenging hikes in the world. Even for the fittest travelers, the trek takes almost a month to complete (19 – 24 days) and you remain at an altitude of over 13,000 feet the whole time. For hikers though, it’s a pilgrimage every April to October for the views, which highlight the temples of Bhutan, the snow-capped Himalayas, lush forest, and rushing streams. Not for those scared of heights, the highest points of the trail are Tsochena and Jicchu Dramo camps, which are both over 16,000 feet.
