The Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) is one of the longest and highest walking-trails in the world.
In Nepal, trekkers can choose between the GHT High Route, winding through high mountain ranges and the GHT Low Route, also referred to as the cultural route. The Low Route goes mostly through the mid-hills between 1,500 and 2,500 m, passing through small villages, inhabited by Nepal’s various ethnic groups, with the snowcapped Himalaya at the horizon.
This guidebook describes the Low Route of the Great Himalaya Trail in Nepal, broken up into 11 packages, which can be done separately from each other. In the second half of the book you will find the travel experiences of the author, who hiked the trail in 2012 and 2013.
