5000M peak permits Nepal

Are these peaks low enough to be exempt from permitting? I know that permits are required for climbing and trekking peaks but what about lower elevation peaks? Thanks in advance!

Snowman Trek in Bhutan

Hi,

I'd like to see if anyone has any idea about companies that are offering snowman trek tour in Bhutan starting sometime during May 2016.

Most tour operators are departing Sep/Oct which is the high season but those dates don't work for me. I know for a fact that there are companies that leave earlier starting End of April but couldn't find anyone departing May.

Would appreciate all the help I could get.
