Everest High Passes

...we shouldn't finish without mentioning admiration for the endlessly busy Mr Lama. He like all World Expeditions staff we met, was very charming and knowledgable, this characteristic seems to be a requirement for employment with the company

GHT Rara Lake & Yari Valley

Trekking in far-west Nepal is like stepping back in time to when the first Europeans began exploring the Himalaya. Locals will greet you with genuine curiosity and you'll enjoy the interations in this region that very few westerners make the effort to visit. The region has an ancient political history as a seat of the first Malla Empire, and stele and other architectural remains are tucked away in almost every valley. The trail from Dolpo is still a regular trading route for Nepalese and Tibetans and leads straight to the largest lake in Nepal, Rara. From here we cross the Great Himalaya Range following the Karnali river and crossing stunning passes to Humla, the largest and most remote district of Nepal, and finally to the Tibet border and the western end of the Great Himalaya Trail. For those who are completing the full GHT, this trek marks the end of a remarkable and very rare journey across the entire length of the Nepal GHT.

Food for thought:
It's rare that trekking companies include meals on trek. But we include 3 hearty meals a day, beverages and water, all carefully prepared. We also cater to most dietary requirements. It's an essential part of our support. Buying food & plastic bottled water means taking unnecessary risk & creates an environmental hazard.
