Stretching 4500kms across the world’s tallest mountain ranges and isolated Himalayan mountain communities makes The Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) the longest and highest alpine walking trail in the world. GHT is a network of existing treks and trails offering an incredible diversity in terms of landscapes, flora & fauna, people and culture. The 1700km Nepal section of the GHT traverse the country from east to west and can be a completed by trekking continuously for 157 days. The trail begins near Kanchenjunga on the eastern border and heads west navigating eight of the world’s 8000m peaks, from Makalu to Everest. The trail ends in Humla on the Tibetan border.
Trekking along Nepal’s section of GHT and spending money on food, accommodation or services such as guides, porters and cooks will make a direct difference to communities in these areas. The trail promises incredible places, people & culture- a unique experience altogether. Due to time constraints, man won’t be able to attempt the whole route. So it is broken up into sections and short treks along the trail. Completing a section of the GHT, Nepal trail, will get you a GHT achievement certificate. The following treks interlink to make the Great Himalayan Trail, Nepal.
Makalu – Sherpani Col / 3 Cols Adventure Trek
Everest High Valleys Trek
Langtang Trek – Trek to the Sacred Lakes
Manaslu & Annapurna (Manaslu Circuit Trek)
Upper Dolpo & Shey Gompa Trek
Jumla – Rara Lake Trek
Tsum Valley Trek
The Great Himalaya Trail is one of the highest and longest trails in the planet. It runs from the east of Nepal to the Far West, and is about 1700 miles. It consists of two trails, a lower one and a higher one. The lower trail is suitable for softer adventure while the higher route is an expedition route in most of the segments.
The Trail is divided into 10 segments, each fitting into one another. The idea is not to get people to do this mammoth three month journey (not many would have the time or the money nor the motivation), but do parts of the trail, and come repeatedly to fill in the jigsaw.
Some of the soft adventure trips that we offer that go into the Trail are presented below. Remember, these are not the only trips possible, so if you have ideas, talk to us!
