From east to west, the Great Himalayan Trail traverses the Himalayas. The initial idea was to create a single, 1,700-kilometer, 1,100-mile-long long-distance trekking trail that would run from the east to the west of Nepal.
From Nanga Parbat in Pakistan to NamcheBarwa in Tibet, a trail that would traverse India, Nepal, Bhutan, and Tibet is proposed. The trail would cover more than 4,500 kilometers (2,800 miles).
In November 2014, a well-funded international non-governmental organization completed cross-country hikes in Nepal and Bhutan sections. Although an actual continuous route is currently only a concept, if completed, it would be the longest and highest alpine hiking track in the world. It travels through numerous valleys and plateaus while making its way to some of the world’s most remote communities. The GHT in Nepal has ten sections that connect upper and lower routes. Existing routes can be used to roughly map out the GHT (also known as the upper and lower), but these routes may not provide a trail that is continuous and uninterrupted.
According to ancient writings, it is the center of the world. Within a 30-mile radius of this location in far-western Tibet, four of the world’s most powerful rivers the Indus (also known as Sindhu in India), Sutlej, Brahmaputra (Yarlung Tsang-po in Tibetan), and Karnali the largest tributary of the Ganges come from this location. This location is Mount Kailash, a massive black rock that rises more than 22,000 feet. It has colossal strict importance.
It is regarded by Hindus as the residence of Lord Shiva and Parvati. Jainism adherents refer to it as Astapada, which means “eight-stepped mountain.” They hold the belief that Rishaba, the first of the 24 Tirthankaras (enlightened beings), attained enlightenment here. It is referred to as Tise by Bon adherents, who consider it to be the seat of the Sky Goddess. It is referred to by Tibetan Buddhists as Kang Rimpoche, or “Precious One of Glacial Snow,” and they believe that Demchok, the vengeful manifestation of the Sakyamuni Buddha, and his partner Dorje Phagmo reside there.
