2018 GREAT HIMALAYA TRAIL
Avg. Daily Miles
About The Great Himalaya Trail:
*Note: Due to many factors, we completed the first 1/3 of the GHT before returning home. Still, this is well worth the read! I do not wish to return to Nepal after my experience, but it was surely a unique experience and I was happy to have such a full spectrum experience of Nepal.
The Great Himalaya Trail is ~900mi long and runs the length of Nepal through the Himalayas. As you can see in the attached photo, there is a low and high route to choose from. We attempted a modified high route with the goal of doing as much of the high route as possible, but dropping down and around the high passes that require mountaineering skills. The trip would normally take about 3-4 months to complete with plenty of challenges both physically and mentally.
