Ganesh Himal Trek

Ganesh Himal Trek

This very trek is newly introduced by us and all of our clients are lucky enough to obtain permission to enter this beautiful area. The trail starts from Trishuli following the upper valley landscapes. You will be witnessing the panoramic views of many majestic mountains, not tiring to see the smiling faces of native people from the villages and sometimes walking by the bank of rivers in continuation of the trail. You will have the opportunity to visit the inhabitants of these areas, who live in a flat-roofed fortress-like village in this remote village. The journey around these legendary mountains is among the most enjoyable though tough.

This is one of the legendary ” Hidden Valleys” of the Himalayas, guarded by 3 tiered pagodas set on a rocky steep-sided gorge to pine forest and alpine meadows leading to a huge glacier below the snow-capped peaks. The trail ends at Syabrubesi and the following day we drive back to Kathmandu.

Experience the trekking area which lies in the central-eastern region of Nepal still lucky to remain untouched by the modern world. You are trekking in a different part of the world getting in contact with local people, unspoiled nature, widely cultural and traditions barrier, a massive mountain close enough to touch. Getting at the height of 4100m pass leaving the clouds under you and greeting the massive mountains over 8000m, would not that be amazing.

The Ganesh Himal is named after the elephant-headed God of Good Fortune. The Ganesh Range Peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, Ganesh IV) stand out like crystal that is the “Great Himalayan Chain” forming the skyline. This great Himalayan massif is contained between the valley of the Buri Gandaki in the west and Bhote Koshi in the east, which becomes the Trishuli River in the lower section.

The first glimpse of Ganesh Himal greets us when we go crossing over the hills and leave Kathmandu behind. After 5 hours bus ride we arrive at the trek starting point called Sole Bazaar (town) where we spend the first night of our outdoor adventure right nearby the river. Our Guide gives a short lesson of trekking on the first night explaining about the altitude sickness and all the beautiful spots from where you can see an excellent view of mountains.

Observe the different ways of inhabitation, and come in contact with different people following various caste, creed and culture, and thereby pass through the dense forest and meadows, crossing through high highlander pass (4100m), which offers an excellent view of the massif Ganesh Himal (7406m), Langtang (7300m), Annapurna (8091m), Fishtail(6990m), Manaslu (8163m), Lamjung (6800m) and many more are the day to day activities of the trek. The unusual climatic and geographical mix make this area a naturalist`s dream and a Mecca.
