The Great Himalayan Trails (GHT) (inaugurated 2012) being one of the longest walking trails, covers every Himalayan range of Nepal from the district of Taplejung in the east to Humla and Darchula passing through lush green valleys, arid high plateaus and incredible landscapes. You can trek, run or bike the trail, take the high route and challenge yourself with some mountaineering OR try the lower route and walk the trail visiting the warm and welcoming villages on the way.
