Great Himalaya Trail

Spanning the length of the Himalaya, across ancient Kingdoms and extraordinary mountains, the Great Himalaya Trail is unlike any hike you ever dreamed of. Engaging communities, humbling hospitality, inspiring wilderness, spectacular trails. Just imagine the most amazing adventure you can think of and then make it Himalayan. Everyone returns home from the GHT with a wealth of tales of epic times, and of people so welcoming that it’s hard to believe.

Explore. Immerse. Challenge. Transform.

The best guide is a local and the kindest place is a home; the essence of travel is the relationship between a guest and their host.
