GHT is divided into 10 sections with a network of upper and lower routes- each presenting a unique experience to the visitors. It encourages avid trekkers to make repeated visits to Nepal to complete the entire trail. GHT is a potential game changer for Nepal’s tourism.
The 1,700 km Nepal section of the trail takes its roots near Kanchenjunga on the eastern border and heads west navigating the domains of eight of the world’s 8000m peaks, from the beautiful but lesser-known Makalu to the famous Everest. It is not the easiest or most direct route across Nepal, but is rather a route through the Greater Himalaya. The Nepal section concludes at Humla on the Tibetan border
