The Great Himalaya Trail is more than a line on a map: it is a way to enjoy the beauty of the Himalaya while helping the people who live there. You can trek, run or bike the trail, take the high route and challenge yourself with some mountaineering, or try the lower route and travel from village to village. Spend 5 days or 5 months on your GHT: whatever takes your fancy. This website is designed to help you design your own Great Himalaya Trail experience and learn more about the Himalaya – the GHT is there to be experienced whichever way best suits you!
Keep on trekking!
