Great Himalayan Trail

Great Himalayan Trail website | Route map

I've been waiting for something like Robin Boustead's Great Himalayan Trail to come along, ever since the Crane brothers published their Running the Himalayas adventure of 1983.

The final route will be 4500km in length from Pakistan to Bhutan, but at present only the 1700km section running the length of Nepal has been completed (by one person!). This consists of 157 days, and is listed as a trek at World Expeditions at a cost of £20,490.

It looks like there's a guidebook covering the trail coming out later this year.

Here are a couple of my photos from Gokyo, November 2009 taken at around 5300 metres:
