A wild and challenging rarely undertaken Bhutan trek to pay homage to the world’s highest unclimbed peak- Gangkar Puensum (7570m). Lying on the border with Tibet, there have been unsuccessful attempts to climb Gangkar Puensum, but since then the Bhutanese have decided that the mountain should not be climbed. So this trek to Gangkar Puensum Base Camp or really to what would be determined as “base camp” beneath the soaring peak remains an unspoilt, high mountain wilderness and what a spectacular amphitheatre of Himalayan giants it is. Many of the side valleys in the higher reaches of the Gangkar Puensum region remain by and large unexplored and frequented only by hardy yak herders. This remote and strenuous trek ensures that this is isolation trekking in Bhutan at its very best, with the reward of close up views of magnificent Gangkar Puensum to the very few that dare to venture.
