About Great Himalayan Trail

Great Himalayan Trail
The trail takes you from east of Nepal to the west of the country so, in about 150 days, you will visit all of Nepal. The journey starts from the beautiful east of Nepal with a trek to the giant Kanchenjunga region. At the beginning of the journey, you will visit the Kanchenjunga- the world’s third-highest mountain. These are the major places to traverse through while in Kanchenjunga. Also, these are commercial areas too. After trekking through the Kanchenjunga part, you trek for days to reach Lumba-Sumba pass (5178m) and then to Makalu. Then after exploring the magnificence of Makalu, we go to Baruntse and cross Sherpani Cole. It is one of the main mountain passes you will cross in this journey and there are few more interesting passes to cross in this long journey. 

After admiring the glorious mountain scenery from the Sherpani cole, we head to Amphu Lapha and simultaneously enter the Everest region. Making the way through the east, we will explore the essence of eastern Khumbu valley and descend via Tashi Lapcha to Rolwaling valley. While in this portion of the journey, we will get to admire the authentic and unique lifestyle, culture, and traditions of Rai, Limbu, Gurung, and Sherpa ethnic groups. These parts of the region are mostly inhabited by these communities. 

Making the most of the journey, we now head towards Tilman Pass of Langtang Valley. Crossing Tilman Pass itself is another amazing aspect of this journey. From the pass, you descend to Langtang where you will get to encounter the Tamang and Sherpa ethnic groups. It is amazing to see a varied way of life than the people you have encountered until now. Every ethnic group of Nepal has its language, dress, customs, traditions, culture this journey will let you take a peek in their life. 

Moving forward, the journey moves along the route to Ruby valley. On the backdrop of the ruby valley, the massive Annapurna range towers over. The valley will amaze you with its spectacular meadow laden hills and the pasture lands. The valley is home to Gurung and Magar communities and a sense of harmony can be felt while in Ruby valley. By now, we have reached the mid-western part of Nepal. After the insightful visit of Ruby valley, we head to the Manaslu region to experience the raw and unhinged life and beauty. After admiring the beautiful aspects of the Manaslu, we then cross another exciting mountain pass- Thorong La passes at the height of 5416m. From here, we begin the journey towards the far-western part of Nepal. Hence, we start our journey for Upper Dolpo. 

In upper Dolpo, we will admire the staggering landscape and the unspoiled natural and cultural beauty. Continuing the journey, we cruise through the off the beaten path to serene and tranquil Rara Lake. Finding solace and peace in the solemness of Rara lake, we ascend to Simikot and from there to Limi Valley. After a long journey, we have almost reached the end of the trek. By this time, you will have gotten accustomed to the diverse culture, traditions, ethnic groups, and dialects. Also, in between the journey, you visit famous trekking destinations like Gokyo Lakes, Gokyo Ri, Muktinath, Annapurna Circuit trail, and much more. 

On the whole, the Great Himalayan Trail is an insightful trekking journey where life, culture, and nature can be celebrated all at the same time. So come along and join the Himalayan Great Trail and adore the authenticity of Nepal with this long yet memorable journey.
