If I could do ANY thru hike in the world, it would be this one.
… 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. …
Cost is about $35,000 / person, I’ve heard.
Another agency — Adventure Geo Treks Deutschland — is offering the adventure over 167 days for about 16,000 euro or $23,000. Danke Dieter.
