Across the Himalaya with Justin Lichter

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Setting the stage Tons of people as the question “Why did you do it?”, or “Why did you go there?” The answer is pretty simple. I want to see new places, explore new areas, and challenge myself in different conditions. These are the same reasons that I head out on all of my expeditions. Part of the fun of the hike is the challenge of the planning. It helps get me excited about the trip. I get to play with maps of different scales and try to weave them together like a...

GHT Untamed, Unpredictable and Unrepeatable

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]I first heard about the Great Himalaya Trail while out on another one of those great walks of the world, Te Araroa. On the very first day I ran into Stuart Bilby who had just gotten back home from Nepal to New Zealand and was strolling around the start of the Long Pathway. It cannot have been more than 5 minutes that we stood there and chatted, and at the time the conversation faded behind the more urgent matters connected to trying to cross New Zealand on foot. PJ, Marylene...

The GHT, the highest, most rugged trail in the world!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] In search of a grand challenge I first set my sights on the GHT after hearing how few people have done the traverse unguided, I was in search of a grand challenge. I believed beforehand that this was the most challenging trail in the world, and after completing it, I still do. My prior experience was exclusively on long distance North American trails. So I had done long hiking days, I could navigate, I knew I could last the duration of a multi month trip. But I had never done any...

The GHT is worth every minute of suffering!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text] Hi, my name is Luc Hapers, 48 years young from Belgium. I have travelled extensively since I was 18. Since 2011, I´m also into ultrarunning and I´ve done several 100 milers and even longer races. But when that was not satisfying enough anymore I started looking for something more challenging. So, searching the net I came across the GHT about 3 or 4 years ago. That looked to me like the perfect challenge. Because of my races I always postponed this trip but then last year I decided to not wait any longer, I...

An utterly awesome experience!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]Our names are Isabella (Izzy) and Andrew (Ronnie). We hiked The Great Himalaya Trail in the spring of 2019 over 107 days. We first visited Nepal in 2011 to complete the three passes hike in Solukumbu region including the walk out to Jiri. Ever since we'd been busting to come back to Nepal. In early 2018 when we decided to move from Australia to the UK we began searching for a challenge to complete along the way. After googling the 'best long distance hikes in the world' one Saturday afternoon we...

The GHT, what a blast!

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]After hiking the Continental Divide Trail and having experimented high altitude trekking with few 6000+ summits in South America few years back, I needed a new long distance challenge. I had heard of the GHT two years before and thought since, that it could be a great project. It would be long distance and high altitude combined together and the best way to discover Nepali Himalayan Range and its diverse culture. One of the great things about GHT is that anyone can custom it according his experience and possibilities. In my...
