What is the difficulty level of the Snowman Trek?
The Snowman trip, which leads to the isolated Lunana area, is considered Bhutan's most challenging walk. The combination of distance, high altitudes, weather conditions, and remoteness make this a difficult trek that should only be attempted if you have prior experience and a high degree of fitness.
How terrifying is The Snowman?
Parents should be aware that The Snowman is a criminal thriller about a serial killer set in Oslo, Norway, and based on Jo Nesb's novel. There's a lot of blood, dead bodies, severed limbs/heads, and other gore.
When should I embark on Snowman Trek?
It does, however, provide some of the most spectacular vistas in the Himalayas and passes through some unique scenery. Season: The Snowman Trek is frequently closed due to snow and is very impossible to complete during the winter. The best time to do this is from mid-June until mid-October.

How tall is Lunana?
Lunana Gewog is located in the country's extreme northwest, with a total area of 1716.26 Sq KM and an elevation of 3400m above sea level.
Is Lunana based on a true story?
Based on the true story of a teacher in Lunana, Bhutan, this film was shot on location with a mostly local cast.
Which is the best route for Bhutan?
To reach Bhutan by car, you must pass through three Indian border crossings. They are as follows: a) the Jaigaon-Phuensholing Border, b) Gelephu, and c) Samdrup Jongkhar. Most travellers favour the Jaigaon-Phuentsholing border since it is easily accessible and may quickly obtain an entry permit.

In Bhutan, what language is spoken?
Dzongkha is Bhutan's official language, spoken primarily in the country's western area. Although Hindi is India's official language, it was historically utilised in Bhutanese classrooms. Bhutan is a multilingual country with roughly 20 languages spoken widely.
Is trekking possible in Bhutan?
Bhutan has it everything, whether you want a day walk or an adventurous month-long journey. Trekking in Bhutan exposes a breathtaking, unspoiled region filled with pristine alpine lakes and majestic glaciers.
What makes trekking so popular in Bhutan?
Trekking in Bhutan allows you to explore distant highland sections of the Eastern Himalaya. We go through dense forest and far up into the alpine zone on our way. We take trails between communities that are only accessible by foot or horseback.
Is trekking expensive?
In terms of affordability, group hiking in India is fantastic. With three nutritious meals and lodging included in all-inclusive trekking packages in India, you can have the most fulfilling low-budget backpacking trip of your life!
