Like the Silk Route or the Hippy Trail, the Great Himalaya Trails are a concept evocative of wilderness, adventure and awe-inspiring landscapes. It is a network of existing trekking trails running through the low, mid, and high Himalayas of Nepal. Collectively, it comprises the longest, highest trekking trail in the world. With the help of UKAID in Nepal, the Great Himalaya Trails are in the process of being formalised into a coherent network for the benefit of travellers, Nepali tourism providers and local communities alike.
Each district of Nepal offers a different experience in terms of climate, culture, and remoteness. Very few of Nepal’s 75 districts were affected by the earthquakes of spring 2015, and these 10 images prove why the Great Himalaya Trails should be your next adventure-travel destination.
