Starting and ending in Kathmandu, the GHT Kanchenjunga Exploratory trip is a guided trekking tour that takes 25 days. You will travel through Chiruwa, Sukathum, Bhadrapur and 11 other destinations in Nepal. GHT Kanchenjunga Exploratory is a small group trip which 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.

“By far the best trek we have done in the Himalayas. Great itinerary, especially the 'off piste' sections which were less commercial and we trekked alone. Good range of different terrain and habitats. Spectacular scenery. Knowledgeable friendly trek leaders and crew who could not have been more approachable and amenable - nothing was too much trouble for them. The eco campsites were terrific: comfortable, scenic, clean and peaceful.”

“Our family loved this trip. A good balance of activity and sightseeing of the amazing temples and countryside. Our tour guide Pissa Chem was outstanding and gave us such a good understanding of the culture, people and history of Cambodia, as well as being very good company. The standard of accommodation and food was excellent. The jungle trek was fantastic. The whole trip was very well organised and we would highly recommend it.”

“I went to Tajikistan with little concept of the beauty we were about to witness. The stark contrast between the vast grey scree of the mountains to the luminous blues & greens of the Kulikalon Lakes system took my breath away. To back this with a week strolling in the heart of Uzbekistan made the whole trip enchanting.”
