Traversing the Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) is a challenging endeavor, but embarking on this epic journey on two wheels brings a whole new level of adventure. Covering roughly 1700 km across the entire Nepali Himalayas, from the majestic Kanchenjunga region in the East to the popular trekking areas of Everest and Annapurna, and even the awe-inspiring yet relatively untouched trails of Humla and Darchula in the West, the GHT offers a glimpse into some of the world’s most breathtaking landscapes.

Most of the trails on the upper route of GHT were impossible to ride on a mountain bike only a few decades ago, but with rising global temperatures and effects of climate change, even biking on glaciers above 6000 m is now feasible, enabling this challenge to set many high altitude mountain biking records. Walking the whole trail in one go is quite a challenging feat in itself, but doing it on a mountain bike presents a whole set of difficult physical and mental challenges, testing the full potential of human capabilities.

With over 22 passes surpassing 5500 m and an elevation gain equivalent to climbing Everest over 25 times, the GHT on Wheels expedition demands unwavering endurance and skill.
