Great Himalayan Trail

The Great Himalayan Trail (GHT) is a network of existing trekking routes that traverses the entire Himalayan range in Nepal, from east to west. Spanning over 1,700 km, it passes through some of the most remote and spectacular mountain landscapes in the world, offering trekkers the opportunity to experience the diverse cultures and ecosystems of the Himalayas.



The GHT is divided into two main sections: the High Route and the Low Route. The High Route, also known as the “Roof of the World,” is a challenging and strenuous trek that passes through remote and high altitude areas, reaching elevations of up to 6,000 meters. This route offers breathtaking views of some of the world’s highest peaks, including Mount Everest, Lhotse, and Makalu. The Low Route, on the other hand, is a more accessible trek that passes through lush subtropical forests and terraced farmland, offering a glimpse of the traditional way of life of the people living in the lower regions of the Himalayas.



The GHT is a unique and challenging trek that requires a high level of physical fitness, proper equipment, and a good understanding of the altitude and weather conditions. Trekkers can choose to trek independently or hire a guide and porters. The trek can be done in sections, with the most popular sections being the Annapurna Circuit, the Everest Base Camp Trek, and the Kanchenjunga Circuit.



The GHT is not only an adventure for the trekkers but also a great opportunity to explore the local cultures and customs of the people living in the Himalayas. Along the way, trekkers will come across many different ethnic groups, each with their own unique customs, languages, and traditions. The trek is also an opportunity to experience the diverse flora and fauna of the Himalayas, with many different species of plants and animals found along the route.



The Great Himalayan Trail is considered one of the most challenging treks in the world, but also one of the most rewarding. The trek offers trekkers an unparalleled opportunity to experience the beauty, culture, and diversity of the Himalayas, making it a must-do for any adventure-seeker.
