Great Himalaya Trails (GHT) is a network of trails that makes it possible to hike in the Nepali hills and mountains from Humla and Darchula in the West to Kanchenjunga in the East, or from East to West. From the popular trekking areas of Everest and Annapurna to the more secluded treks in Dolpa and Makalu Barun, the GHT is the banner that covers the entire Nepali Himalayas.

The GHT is split into 8 sections with hundreds of stunning trails that have been walked for centuries. GHT can be done in parts or 8 sections all in one go.

Along the trails, you’ll find big mountains, astounding vistas, welcoming villages and a unique personal challenge. Those who have trekked along the GHT have called it a spiritual journey.

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– one that only dozens of individuals have accomplished– but riding the GHT on a mountain bike presents a whole set of difficult physical and mental challenges, testing the full potential of human capabilities.
