Overland Track

The knowledge of the guides was brilliant and really made the trip a great success. The effort they put into everything from our safety to dessert was amazing - I am very impressed. This walk was above and beyond all of my expectations!

GHT - Nepal - The Full Traverse

This is your opportunity to walk the full length of Nepal's Great Himalaya trail in one continuous trek. The 152 day trek commences in the far east in the Kanchenjunga region where the world's third highest peak stretches skyward, and traverses the country to the high plateaus on the Tibetan borderlands in the far west. Along this 1700km trail you'll encounter some of the wildest and most remote mountain environments imaginable. You'll see all of Nepal's 8000 metre peaks, cross tens of passes ranging from moderate to extreme and witness villages where the culture has remained intact for centuries. It's a trek that should only be considered by those with extensive trekking and mountaineering experience, a high level of fitness and a flexible approach as there will be the need to adapt to a range of situations throughout the trek. We are sure the rigours of this full length GHT trek will be countered with immense satisfaction and a truly unforgettable lifelong memory.

traveller reviews

This has been the most amazing experience anyone could ever think of doing. I have come so far, over 1700kms across this beautiful country, and over 29 high passes and been above 6000m. And not to mention the kind hearted people of Nepal, always full of joy and rich in culture, that we have met along this journey.
For me this has been a very personal adventure and the sense of achievement Ė I canít tell you how proud I am of myself. Iíll take from this experience to propel me forward in life.
The staff have done a phenomenal job on this journey, so tirelessly hard working. Itís not quite over yet, still 2 Ĺ days to go before we get back to Simikot, it makes me happy that itís not over! Weíre now retracing steps back to Simikot and our flight out, itís a strange feeling after traversing the country completely in the opposite direction, however this short return section offers a different perspective of the stunning views and I feel itís fitting to be facing the mountains we have travelled over.
I have been extremely happy with my gear that has served me well along this 152 day journey, itís kept me comfortable and given me confidence in all the extreme conditions we have encountered. Although this journey is about to end I canít help thinking of the next thing, future goals, perhaps a trip to New Zealand and a mountaineering course to learn the skills to climb the mountains we have passed beneath over the last 5 months! When I return home I hope to inspire others to get out there, especially the youth, to get out there and get amongst it, there is so much out there.
Personally, I would like to thank World Expeditions for making it possible, itís a huge undertaking to organize and execute such a logistically complicated journey. Itís really opened my eyes a lot, and itís changed my life, when I return home the plan is to live more simply, at home we take so much for granted, here, there is so little, people have so little, and they are happy, and they have touched my heart.
