Teri Goldstein, owner of Travels with Teri, has partnered with Ujjwala Dali of the Nepal Tourist Board and a Nepalese trekking affiliate company as of yesterday in San Francisco to begin offering treks
on the newly opened Great Himalayan Trail.
The campaign is called “One Trail To Rule Them All”.
The idea behind “One Trail” was developed by the Dutch development agency SNV and the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) in Kathmandu in 2006 and proposed developing an official Great Himalaya Trail from near Kangchenjunga in the east to Api-Saipal in the far west of Nepal. If opening up wild and remote parts of the country could attract trekkers away from the busy areas like Everest, it could benefit more of the 1.8 million people living in the mountains.
Travels with Teri will be one of only a handful of USA travel companies who will be arranging trekking tours for this unique adventure which takes 120 days for the entire 1700 kilometers trail. Trekking can be broken down into 10 sections or treks and can be done on a low altitude trail as well as the higher altitude trail. This trip of a lifetime to the northern border region between Tibet and Nepal offers you the chance to visit unusual places such as Nepal’s Far West, Humla, Rara & Jumla, Dolpa, Mustang, Manaslu & Ganesh, Makalu Barun & Kanchenjunga.
