Last September, Steve Dimond, one of the walking group completed the Bhutan Snowman trek – one of the most difficult treks in the world according to the Lonely Planet Guide.
In 24 days, Steve and 5 other intrepid trekkers, crossed 11 high passes over 4,500 metres passing small villages, isolated farming settlements and yak herders encampments that are isolated from the outside world for a large part of the year.
The trekkers were supported by 2 guides and 5 camp staff, who catered for their every need and up to 30 horses and 2 horsemen who carried all their gear and food.
The scenery was breathtaking with wonderful views, including views of a number of unclimbed 7000m peaks, as they walked through snow fields, rain and glorious sunshine
It was exhausting but………………..they are planning this year’s trek to the Ladakh region of NW India.
