Walk Through Nepal’s Great Himalaya Trail
Stretching 4500kms across the world’s tallest mountain ranges and isolated Himalayan mountain communities makes The Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) the longest and highest alpine walking trail in the world. GHT is a network of existing treks and trails offering an incredible diversity in terms of landscapes, flora & fauna, people and culture. The 1700km Nepal section of the GHT traverse the country from east to west and can be a completed by trekking continuously for 157 days. The trail begins near Kanchenjunga on the eastern border and heads west navigating the domains of eight of the world’s 8000m peaks, from Makalu to Everest. The trail ends in Humla on the Tibetan border. Trekking along Nepal’s section of GHT and spending money on food, accommodation or services such as guides, porters and cooks will make a direct difference to communities in these areas. The trail promises incredible places, people & culture- a unique experience altogether. Due to time constraints, many won’t be able to attempt the whole route. So it is broken up into sections and short treks along the trail. Completing a section of the GHT, Nepal trail with Explore Himalaya will get you a GHT achievement certificate.

Apr 2023 I had an incredible experience trekking to Everest Base Camp with Explore Himalaya. Our guides were absolutely amazing. They provided us with exceptional support and guidance throughout the journey. The porters deserve special recognition too for their hard work and dedication. The entire journey was filled with breathtaking views and unforgettable experiences. From the start until the conclusion , every moment was filled with awe and wonder. I highly recommend Explore Himalaya for anyone seeking an unforgettable trekking experience in the Himalayas. Thank you to all the the staff, for making our journey truly exceptional!
13 Day Manaslu Circuit Trek Nov 2018 We have just returned to Kathmandu after a wonderful trek around the Manaslu circuit, starting in Soti Khola and finishing in Jaget. The trek and transport out and back to Kathmandu were very well organized. Our guide, Bharet Rana was excellent, arranging our tea-house accomodation and meals each day, without hitch. He was always good humoured and provided an interesting commentary on sights along the way.
Our Everest Base Camp trek was a wonderful and memorable one. Everything was very well organised. Thank you Explore Himalaya and the staffs for such an excellent service. We were taken care of from the moment we landed in Ktm till the day we left. The Guides and the Porters team of Explore Himalaya are very friendly and helpful. They took care of every little things during our trek. Some walked faster, some slowly and few could not but No one was left behind. They walk with your pace and motivates you until you get up. Anuj Pandey, MD of Explore Himalaya was available 24 hours a day when anybody was in need, he even flew to Namche to check if everything was going well and if everybody was doing good. The Guides Bibek Pandey, Bhuwan Tamang and Ram Rajbhandari along with their 5 Porters were the main pillars who made our mission accomplished. I'd highly recommend anybody who wants to travel to Nepal to contact Explore Himalaya and get themselves spoilt and entertained with their excellent service.
