Map of Far West Nepal

The Great Himalaya Trail N1: The Far West Section

The Far West is one of the least explored areas of Nepal. It is bounded to the east by the mighty, turquoise Karnali River that flows from Tibet’s sacred Mount Kailash.

The two maps below show the Lower Great Himalaya Trail connecting from Rara, Jumla and Mugu to Darchula at the Indian border. The Lower GHT route is highlighted in green.
