Great Himalayan Trail - High Route - Minus33® Merino Wool Clothing

Great Himalayan Trail – High Route

The Great Himalayan Trail… I heard that it hadn’t been done solo before (later to find I was the 5th), so I derailed my plans to go scuba diving for a Himalayan adventure.   The trail traverses the country of Nepal and I was awestruck by the extreme ruggedness, and the unbelievably intense and beautiful scenery.   Equally as amazing, were the unbelievably kind and hospitable locals, surviving in the harsh landscape, yet always happy and welcoming.  During my traverse I traveled through lowland jungles, across high alpine glaciers, stayed in a couple of local’s homes, had a near death experience, and a nighttime run in with a snow leopard.  Everything you could ask for to make a wonderful adventure.


From the high and cold ridges of the Himalayan alpine, to the sweltering heat of the jungles, I faced everything one could while on a long trek. Whether I was sweating wildly trying to keep from overheating, or shivering cold trying to keep every last bit of heat in, I was never let down by my Minus33. Encompassing all of the miracle properties of wool, with the durability to last a long and arduous trek. I can’t help but feel thankful to have brought along clothing that I could so rely on.

About the Author

minus 33 merino wool clothing, winter snowboarding, outdoors, merinoholic TrevorI grew up in Houston, Texas, and anyone who has ever been there knows, that saying there are limited outdoors opportunities is an understatement. But being born in Colorado, and living the first few years of my life here, I guess I have the mountains in my blood. After making a return to the colorful state, I decided to try to make up for lost time.


In the winters you can find me skiing in the Vail area, and storing away funds for my summer adventures. Which include my most recent traverse across the Great Himalayan Trail’s High Route, that took me from the Eastern to Western borders of Nepal. As well as last summers trip from Colorado to Alaska, where I went 4700 miles from Steamboat Spring to Prudhoe Bay, by hiking, biking, and paddling. Not to forget my first adventure, which I consider my entry into the outdoors, a raft guide on the Arkansas River.
I am always looking for the next big adventure, the next great test out in the wilderness that I can challenge myself with.

Favorite Minus33 Product: “I think that in any adventure, versatility is key, making the Ticonderoga Lightweight Crew my go-to.”
