The Great Himalaya Trail is one of the longest and highest walking trails in the world. Winding beneath the world’s highest peaks and visiting some of the most remote communities on earth, it passes through lush green valleys, arid high plateaus and incredible landscapes.
The trail covers the full distance of the Himalayan Range in Nepal from the district of Taplejung in the East to Humla and Darchula in the West and ultimately continues through Tibet, India and Myanmar in East of Nepal and Tibet, India and Pakistan in the West.
Nepal’s GHT is divided into ten connecting treks with a duration of 2-3 weeks each on average. The treks can be done subsequently or completely separate from each other. Besides, each GHT section features a number of side-treks of varying duration and difficulty, some of which require camping equipment and others that can be done teahouse style. With numerous trekking options and new tourism attractions, each GHT section forms a distinct trekking and adventure destination within itself.
