The GHT Kanchenjunga Exploratory tour starts from and ends in Kathmandu. It is a trekking tour that takes 25 days taking you through Suketar, Sukathum, Gyabla and 11 other destinations in Nepal. GHT Kanchenjunga Exploratory is a guided small group tour that includes accommodation in hotels, 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.

“We travelled for 12 days by bike in Vietnam and Cambodia - through the Mekong Delta from Saigon and then up to Angkor Wat - with our 13 year old son. We had an amazing time. Some long rides in very hot weather, but our amazing guide managed to gauge things perfectly - stopping for cold sugarcane juice or providing fresh fruit for short breaks. Lots of cultural and historical information, easy access to sites of significance and a great balance between fun and adventure. The accommodation was of a much higher standard than we had expected - the Mekong delta homestay was incredible. Our group of 7 got on really well, which added another element. The cycling was sometimes challenging due to the heat, but we were able to access areas that no tourists would see - cycling along pathways through villages and rice fields rather than being caught in crowds. Nothing better than pushing yourself and then relaxing with fine local food and the occasional Saigon beer! We loved our trip and will start thinking about where next! Great value too.”
