The combination of distance, altitude, weather and remoteness makes this a tough journey. It starts of taking the same route as Laya trek. After reaching Laya, it turns eastward and crosses the Ganglakarchung pass, at 5,100 meters (16,700 feet), into the Lunana region where habitation is concentrated in the villages of Thega and Chezo. It is the most difficult region of Bhutan to reach, lying at 4,000 meters (13,000 feet) at the foot of the peaks that soar up to 7,000 meters (23,000 feet).

The inhabitants are farmers, herders who are famous for their difficult character. The trek heads south, and after crossing the Rinchenzoe pass, at 5,220 meters (17,125 feet), it hits the tarmac road at Nikkarchu Bridge. The Lunana trek is considered one of the most difficult in the world. It covers a distance of 356 kilometers (221 miles), crosses eight passes, three of which are well over 5,000 meters (16,400 feet), and stays at an average altitude of 4,000 meters (over 13,000 feet).
