Passes and Peaks of the Great Himalayan Trail (GHT)

Completed : 8/86

Have you ever wanted to rub shoulders with the giants? Well here is a list of high-altitude passes that have an elevation that exceeds 5000m (maximum O2 sat of 55%) that you will 'pass' on the Great Himalayan Trail (GHT) High Route in Nepal. You can also find a list of the 33 peaks that are regulated by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) along with their topographic prominence, as well as a list of the more easily accessible Base Camps. The high-altitude passes on this list are ordered from east to west, whereas the Base Camps are ordered by their elevation.

* Prominence is defined as the "height of a mountain's summit by the vertical distance between it and the lowest contour line encircling it but containing no higher summit within it", and has been described as an "objective measurement that is strongly correlated with the subjective significance of a summit". Since peaks with high prominence are either the highest point on a massif or an isolated peak, they also tend to have the best views!


* Those that are marked with an asterix are located adjacent to the GHT on other trekking routes
