Note about the Great Himalaya Trail


The Great Himalaya Trail is kind of a vague concept … there are any number of possible variations … it is really just a network of trails (where there are any) pieced together to create a “higher route” linking the remote and rugged mountain districts in the highest regions of Nepal, and a “lower route” linking the slightly less remote and rugged hill districts. In 2017 Lizzy made what could be considered as currently the highest independent route setting a benchmark for runners and trekkers wanting to explore the Nepal Himalaya.

Whichever way you go, in reality crossing Nepal is anything but vague – it is tough, it is wild, it is enormous and it is humbling. Read more here to know more about Lizzy’s journeys and her reasoning why there is no FKT (fastest known time) for the Great Himalaya Trail ….
