Our 2013 Snowman group was led by Paul Burditt and we had our regular Bhutanese trek crew on board again with Dawa as the Sirdar; Tashi & Tashi as guides and Tenzing working as the cook. In the end this group successfully made the full traverse from Paro to Bumthang in spite of poor weather as a result of Cyclone Phalin.
I have copied one of the testimonials below from one member of the group with his feedback on how the trek went:
“I really enjoyed the Snowman, despite the awful weather. It must be a very difficult logistical exercise to organise it but everything seemed to go really well. Paul made an excellent job of leading it and I was delighted to have been able to complete it, a real accomplishment. Dawa's organisation was excellent. Tulsi's personal collection and return to the airport in Kathmandu was first class. This is the type of trek which I revel in and I will be looking for something similar in future” Chris (UK)
The Mountain Company is planning to organise our Lunana Snowman trek in September/ October 2014 (dates: September 21st to October 26th 2014), please get in touch soon if you are interested in joining this group.
