The Great Himalaya Trail

The Great Himalaya Trail (GHT) is a proposed route of over 4500 km of existing trails stretching the length of the Greater Himalaya range from Nanga Parbat (Jam-mu & Kashmir, Pakistan) to Namche Barwa (Tibet) thus passing through Kashmir, India, Nepal, Bhutan and Tibet. When completed, it will be the longest and highest alpine walking track in the world. As of July 2010, only the Nepal and Bhutan sections have been walked and documented thoroughly. The other countries are still being researched. Winding beneath the world’s highest peaks and visiting some of the most remote communities on earth, it passes through lush green valleys, arid high plateaus and incredible mountainous landscapes. Nepal’s documented GHT has 10 sections comprising a network of upper and lower routes.

Proposed? Nope - it has already been completed at least 6 times.

Would love to do it one day, but doubt I'll ever have the time!

Looks amazing but who can afford to walk in Bhutan? the govt charges you $250 for each day of your visa.

Mm... I just checked my wallet and I can confirm I don't have $33,000 for this walk.

A map would be useful.
