The Great Himalayan Trail (GHT)

Do you fancy a long walk? Are you planning for your long trekking holidays in Nepal? If so, Coldfeet Adventures may have just the best holiday for you. We operate the guided trip along the first completed section of the Great Himalayan Trail. The Nepalese Himalayas is undoubtedly one of the greatest trekking destinations in the world and is the land of snow peaks and fluttering prayer flags and epic mountain adventures. While taking into account the majority of trekkers that flock to Nepal often test themselves on two of the classic trekking expeditions: Annapurna Circuit and Everest Base Camp Treks. But it's not that these two are the only best options for them. There are many excellent hikes hidden in the shadows of popular and crowded trails. And of course, they are quite promising, peaceful and less trodden trails as well. So, the Great Himalaya Trail offers the life defining opportunity for those who are looking for the cutting edge adventure travel in Nepal. Go somewhere you've never been and experience the unforgettable mountain adventure in Nepal.

The Great Himalayan Trail takes you through the Himalayan foothills, rocks and ice, most of the times through lesser-known routes exploring the something new in Nepal Himalayas, Being a newly opened route, we have lots of new things to explore during the trip. The Great Himalayan Trail was officially opened in September 2011 in hot pursuit of encouraging tourists to explore more of the country. It covers the mind-blowing 1700 kilometers of track that has been divided into 10 different sections, through the best places to explore east to west of Nepal Himalayas.

Let's discuss a bit on the highlights of the Great Himalayan Trail:

Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek
The strenuous trek to Kanchenjunga Base Camp can be done as a teahouse trek or entirely in a camping basis as well. Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trail, located close to the border with India and Sikkim, needs approx. 20 days to be completed. The trail passes through forest-shrouded hillsides, remote and narrow valleys, and warm Sherpa villages where you will be offered Tongba—a warming mountain pick-me-up made up of fermented millet and hot water. Kanchenjunga Base Camp Trek offers you a true wilderness experience.

Numbur Cheese Circuit Trail
Numbur Cheese Circuit Trail is a 16-day circuit in the Ramechhap region of Nepal. Ramechhap is only 100 kilometers east of Kathmandu. During this trip, we follow the part of Sir Edmund Hillary's approach trail to Everest. Be sure that this trek is going to be as much a cultural experience as it's a foot journey. We follow the off-the-beaten track passing through isolated Sherpa communities, huge rhododendron forests and alpine wilderness. Gyajo La (4880m) is going to be the highest point of Numbur Cheese Circuit Trail and here, you might even spot an elusive snow leopard. As the name says, Numbur Cheese Circuit Trail offers you the yak-milk cheese made by Sherpa people.

Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Community Trail
Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Community Trail is just a 9-day route passing through the world's deepest river gorge at Kaligandaki River Valley on the narrow village pathways. You need to cross Khopra Ridge along with the moss-swatched rhododendron forests where you might even have chance to spot tigers and bears roaming around. Khopra Danda offers arguably the best views over the Annapurna and Dhalagiri. Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Trek is also an opportunity for you to interact with local communities of Annapurna and Dhaulagiri Region.

Jomsom to Mustang Trail
Jomsom to Mustang trek is another highlighting trip under our Great Himalayan Trail. This trip takes approx. 12 days following an ancient trade route to the enclosed city of Lo Manthang. You need to fly to Jomsom, the starting point of Jomsom to Mustang trail. The trekking route passes throughs and arid and wind sculpted terrain, Buddhist gompas, cave temples and stupas, past stone villages and ever-welcoming local guesthouses as well. Jomsom-Mustang Trek is even accessible for less experienced trekkers as well because the maximum altitude we have to reach is only 4070m. And we can travel some parts of the route by jeep or horseback. When you are in Mustang, you will feel like secretly entering the Tibet. Jomsom-Mustang trail is undoubtedly an incredible cultural and historical rendezvous with outstanding highland backdrop.

Dolpa Circuit
When it comes to Dolpa and its outstanding landscape, we need to discuss about Eric Valli-made film Himalaya. Eric was the first person to bring out such a desolately beautiful landscape of Dolpa to the outside world via his documentary Himalaya in 1999. Dolpa still is one of the least visited destinations in Nepal. Dolpa Circuit, being the part of the Great Himalayan Trail, takes you through the beautiful barren landscapes, alpine meadows, high altitude deserts of Tibetan Plateau, and such a jewel-blue lake of Shey Phoksundo as well. The trip takes around two weeks to complete the entire Dolpo Circuit. You can also explore the predominant Buddhist culture and also get to visit the Buddhist Gompas.

Rara Lake
Rara Lake, the largest lake in Nepal, is undoubtedly the sparkling azure centerpiece of Rara National Park, the least visited and smallest protected area in Nepal. Situated at the western part of Nepal, Rara Lake trail needs you to fly to Jumla and then 10 consecutive days of trekking expedition. The Rara National Park is the home to abundant wildlife including Himalayan black bears, jackals, red pandas, otters and magnificent tall Himalayan cedars full of chattering birds.

What Client's Say

I have made a trip to Helambu circuit with Cold Feet in March 2009 and had a great time. Our Guide Suman did fantastic job. I will recommend Cold Feet to any of my friends and family who are traveling to Nepal.Tom Manzo Tucson Arizona

November 2013 - I just returned from the most amazing trek to Annapurna Base Camp with ColdFeet! Gopi and his staff were so helpful before I even arrived in Nepal and continue to be during my stay in this amazing country! Sunaina was an awesome, fun and caring guide. I would highly recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking for tours/treks in the Nepal area!jackie o. CANADA

Hey We just came back from a trip to langtang. Organization was very efficient, we planned the trip in two days and just went right away to Langtang! Beautiful place to see, good accommodation and very friendly guide, thanks Coldfeet!Nicolas Lacombe FRANCE

Great trek to Gosainkund lake arranged at short notice by Cold Feet, followed by rafting and cultural visits. We turned up at the desk in Thamel and Gopi organised all the rest for us at very short notice. Great guiding and even evening entertainment with puzzles and tricks.John Edwards turnipedwards@virginmedia.com

Today and yesterday I had an amazing two day sight seeing tour, in Kathmandu, Bhaktapur, Patan and lots of other places, organized by ColdFeet! Unfortunately I could not finish my original trek to ME base camp because I got ill and had to get back. Waiting for my friends, the lovely people from ColdFeet helped me get back on my feet and made my trip - although slightly different as planned - one I won't ever forget en enjoyed very much! So... thanks!Ilona Zwolle, The Netherlands

What I like best about the team at ColdFeet is not only are they knowledgeable guides and leaders, but they have the ability to help you get under the skin and really experience this wonderful country. Not only did we did have a great time trekking the Annapurnas and rafting the Trisuli, but we left Nepal feeling we had made lifelong friends. Tom, South LondonTom email.tom.griffin@gmail.com

I am now in my final year at university in England but a few summers back I was lucky enough to be part of a trek adventure in the Everest region organised by ColdFeet. Gopi, who was in charge, lead 50 Wimbledon Explorer Scouts for roughly ten days. The trip was incredibly well organised and we all felt very safe under his and his support staffs' guidance. Not only this but because of Gopi's extensive experience in the region we were really able to make the most of everything that was around us. I would enthusiastically recommend ColdFeet to anyone looking to trek in Nepal, not least because aswell as being professional and reliable all the staff at ColdFeet are friendly and do their upmost to make sure everyone really has fun. I look forward to any opportunity to be in Nepal with ColdFeet again. Oliver Young London

A really great trek, well led and organised by friendly, fun and frankly awesome guides. The most beautiful place I have ever been to. Thanks so much Gopi!Benedict Phillips Streatham Common, London, UK
