Lunana Trek

 

  • Overview

  • Cost Info

Skyline Treks Expedition have operated Lunana trek on 3 previous occasions and we remain one of the only companies to have successfully done so. We have also run dozens of treks in and out of Lunana over the years, using shorter approaches, and can claim to have run more Lunana treks than any other company. However, the complete Lunana Snowman, which incorporates the whole route from Paro past Chomolhari, through Lingshi and Laya, is very infrequently done. Although this is a long trek (and therefore more expensive), it is a wonderful trekking challenge. We feel that this is one of our most ‘special’ treks. After trekking past Bhutan’s second highest peak, Chomolhari 7,314m/23,999ft the route takes you through fabulous mountains and isolated areas to reach the village of Laya. From here you strike east again into Lunana. Lunana trek is, without a doubt, the most remote region in Bhutan – even the king has only very recently visited it. It is closed throughout the winter by snowbound passes and indeed the lowest pass to enter Lunana is 16,500ft/5,029m. It is no mean success and few people have managed this journey. The route, of course, is the usual extension of our Hidden Kingdom trek, thus completing a negotiate of the northern border with Tibet and thereby seeing all the un-named, unclimbed, unmapped Bhutanese peaks between 6,010m/20,000ft and 7,300m/24,000ft.
