Nepal’s Great Himalaya trail in 152 days

If I could do ANY thru hike in the world, it would be this one.

GreatHimalayanTrail-Map-600

… 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. …

World Expeditions

Cost is about $35,000 / person, I’ve heard.

UPDATE:

Another agency — Adventure Geo Treks Deutschland — is offering the adventure over 167 days for about 16,000 euro or $23,000. Danke Dieter.

  1. Hahaha,

    You can organize it a lot cheaper (!!!) yourself and I also think 152 days is a bit too long. For $35K I can climb the Everest, not that I actually want to;)

    I’m actually chewing on such idea myself, a 60-day ‘solo’ GHT thru-hike.. All depends if I can somehow escape my responsibilities, mainly job related, for 2-3 months, or so… BTW, I’m familiar with about 15-20% of the GHT trail that I hiked in ’02 and ’06…

    BTW, loving your blog!!! It brings back lots of memories. Keep it up;)

  2. Agree with Rich. Sounds great, until the reality of being gone for 10 weeks is considered.

    First time I went to Asia it was for 6 months, but that was back when I was young (in my 40’s). Think in another few years or so I’ll be old enough again.
