Ironically, the highest mountain in Bhutan is also a peak which has never been summited. Gangkar Punsum, 7,550m/24,770ft, is located in Bhutan’s northern border with Tibet. Because of the fact that it is remotely situated, it has seen very few visitors.
This relatively new trek takes you on an adventure to the southern side of the mountain, you will trek to its base by the way of the Chamkhar Chhu valley. You could be one of the few fortunate ones to traverse this region.
