GHT Kanchenjunga Exploratory is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation, transport, meals and others.

The Kanchenjunga Exploratory is the first stage of the Great Himalaya Trail and passes through stunning mountain scenery under the immense north face of Kanchenjunga before turning towards the west where we cross the Nango La.. The Kanchenjunga Exploratory is the first stage of our inaugural Great Himalaya Trail and passes through stunning mountain scenery under the immense north face of Kanchenjunga before turning towards the west where we cross the Nango La, before looping back to our starting point at Suketar.
During this trek there will be sections where the trail is very rugged or ill-defined, some trails have been trekked only once by a small party, and so the going will be tough. Space in some camp sites will also be very limited. It may be necessary to make changes to the itinerary at any time due to unforeseen circumstances such as adverse weather, snow or trail conditions, river water levels, or group movement. Your trip leader will advise any changes should this occur. All participants on the GHT should be flexible and open minded. The GHT should be seen as exploratory in the true sense of the word.

“The Vietnam by Bike was an extraordinary trip rich in cultural experiences with local people as well as active biking. We have traveled extensively throughout our lives, and this trip ranks as a trip of our lifetime. Thank you. Jannie and Erik Laursen”

“We are a widely travelled couple of 70 year olds and both the Egypt and Jordan Explorer trips were absolutely amazing and far exceeded our expectations. The guides and drivers were totally professional, exceptionally knowledgeable and looked after us very well. Both trips covered everything on the itinerary and as we had spare time at the start and end of our Egypt section, our guide offered us a few options such as the Bent Pyramid, Alexandria, Dendara Temple and the Cairo Islamic Quarter visit that we gladly took up. All airport meet/greet and transfers went smoothly and the overnight train trip from Aswan to Cairo was a unique experience. We thoroughly recommend World Expeditions, we have travelled with them previously and will most certainly travel with them again.”
