The next big thing in trekking has just launched: for the first time ever the Great Himalaya Trail is now available through a specialist tour operator.
Are you an intrepid traveller? Then why not be one of the first to journey by train along the world’s highest and most spectacular railway line - the first to link Tibet with the rest of China on an inspiring adventure across the Himalayan plains and souring mountains to Lhasa. The 21-day trip of a lifetime with Travelsphere costs from £2,699 and travels from Xining, the provincial capital of Qinghai to remote Tibet.
