Ganesh Himal Trek

12 Days

Trip Overview

Located on the high valleys of the Northern Tibetan border, the Ganesh Himal (7,406 m) can be viewed prominently from the Kathmandu valley. This supersite mountain peak is named for the serpentine southern ridge that suggests enchanted representation of the elephant-headed Hindu god of good fortune. This can be a terrific opportunity to trek on a non-touristy trail with solitude for trekkers to enjoy magnificent mountains and to discover rich flora.

After driving from Kathmandu to Sole Bazaar, we shall begin our trek and pass through Kispang and Gonga. The trekking route passes through quite Tamang villages, hot spas, gorges and glaciers with a view of Ganesh Himal V & II, Langtang Li Rung and Paldo etc. As we get ahead with our trek we shall cross the rhododendron forest and then climb the trail up to the Tamang village of Rupchet. From here onwards we shall move on towards Larpak via Sing La (4,100m). Now we shall reach Phedi and climb up to Pansang Bhanjyang, from here you shall be  offered with the mountain views of Manaslu (8,163 m), Langtang Li Rung (7,234 m), Ganesh and Tibetan mountains before heading towards Somdang. Architectural structures of the tradition of the local people like flat roofed fortress-like houses in the village are some of the cultural specialties of this particular region. The whole trekking route is covered with dense forests of Spanish oak, blue pine which sets alight in spectacular arrays of color. From there we direct our course to Chauri Thala, as the trail is straight and with just some amount of moderate walking we can reach it. Along with the natural wonders, the cultural tradition and the way of living of the inhabitants of the area may surprise you at times. One can witness the panoramic views of mountains and hills covered in greens that are all covered by rich and diverse floral and faunal species. And so as our trek comes to an end, from Mailung we shall move on towards Pairobensi and then take a drive back to Kathmandu.

Our 12 days Ganesh Himal Trek is perfect for those wanting to discover abundant and diverse flora & fauna in the Langtang National Park with breathtaking views of Langtang Ri, Ganesh Himal, Langsisa. In general any time of the year is good enough for this trek but mainly anyone with above average physical fitness can join this trek. Join Himalayan Trekking Alliance team to be part of this flamboyant trek through the Hidden Valley of the Himalayas.
