Wild Women on Top had the most extra ordinary expedition to Mt Aconcagua with World Expeditions! Angel Armesto's passion, experience, commitment and ability to guide safely on a challenging high altitude expedition was superb. Thanks for connecting us with such a remarkable man on such a fantastic adventure.

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 on the planet. 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 challenges of this full length GHT trek will be countered with immense satisfaction and a truly unforgettable lifelong memory.
