A World First – 157 day trek – Nepal’s Great Himalaya Trail

A WORLD FIRST:  World Expeditions invites travelers to undertake a truly extraordinary trek. Be one of the first people ever to walk the full length of Nepal’s Great Himalaya Trail in one continuous trek. The 157 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.

Acknowledging that most of us simply don’t have the luxury of this sort of time for our adventures, we’ve crafted seven treks that will interlink to make up the full traverse. The beauty of each is that they all offer something completely different, but importantly, by joining one of the GHT treks (or the whole thing if you so desire), you will be helping us achieve our vision of sharing the benefit of tourism dollars with isolated communities that currently receive little to no income from this source. This is an opportunity to experience some of the least visited, most exciting hidden corners of Nepal where you will be struck with awe and wonder at the scale and grandeur of the land.
