The Great Himalaya Trail

157 Days

Nepal : The Full Traverse

Starting March 2026


This is your opportunity to be one of the few people to walk the full length of Nepal’s Great Himalaya 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 metre 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 rigours 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 trails have been trekked only few times by a 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.

The Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) is the longest and highest alpine walking track in the world, winding 4500 kms. through the tallest mountain ranges and most isolated communities from Tibet to Pakistan.

The Nepal section of the GHT (1700kms) offers a kaleidoscope of experiences. The trail, which can be undertaken in one continuous trek of 157 days, will traverse the country from east to west. Acknowledging that most of us simply don’t have the luxury of this sort of time for our adventures, there are seven loop treks which can be combined with link treks to make up the full traverse.

The beauty of each is that they all offer something completely different. 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.
