A Quick Overview
This is your opportunity to be one of the few people to walk the full length of Nepal's high route of the Great Himalayan Trail in one continuous trek. The 152-day trek commences in the far east in the Kanchenjunga region where the world's third-highest peak stretches skyward and traverses the country to the high plateaus on the Tibetan borderlands in the far west. Along this 1700km trail, you'll encounter some of the wildest and most remote mountain environments imaginable. You'll see all of Nepal's 8000-meter peaks, cross tens of passes ranging from moderate to extreme, and witness villages where the culture has remained intact for centuries. It's a trek that should only be considered by those with extensive trekking and mountaineering experience, a high level of fitness, and a flexible approach as there will be the need to adapt to a range of situations throughout the trek. We are sure the rigors of this full-length GHT trek will be countered with immense satisfaction and a truly unforgettable lifelong memory. During this trek there will be sections where the trail is very rugged or ill-defined, some trail shave been trekked only a few times by small parties, and so the going will be tough. Space in some campsites will also be very limited. It may be necessary to make changes to the itinerary at any time due to unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather, snow or trail conditions, river water levels, or group movement. Your trip leader will advise any changes should this occur. All participants on the GHT should be flexible and open-minded. The GHT should be seen as exploratory in the true sense of the word.
