The trek was organized to raise global awareness on the impacts of Climate Change in the Himalayas and establish GHT as the world’s highest long-distance walking trail and Nepal’s newest tourism product among travelers and tourism professionals worldwide. Organizers of this trek included Himalayan Climate Initiative, Government of Nepal and jointly supported by DFID, British Council, SNV, NTB, TAAN, Geo-Eye, Asian Trekking, North Face and Dell.
