Overview

A trek in Nepal's center eastern region, one of the Himalayas' least-explored places, located between the most popular trekking sites of Langtang to the east and Manaslu to the west. A trip through the magnificent hidden valley that allows you to experience a diverse range of cultures and natural scenery. Ganesh is a Hindu god with an elephant head. The Peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, Ganesh IV), Mount Manasalu, Tibet range, Langtang, and Annapurna are all visible from this region, as well as views of the Tibet range, Langtang, and Annapurna. Traveling through the Ganesh Himal area allows you to photograph the beautiful scenery of mountains, waterfalls, Saint George, dramatic landscape paintings, towering cliffs, and stunning rock formations.

Ganesh Himal Trek covers the route just west of Langtang National Park, but your experience will be no different than any other trek in Nepal's Langtang region. Ganesh Himal Trek is distinguished by its terraced hills, beautiful woods, diversified topography, and Tamang culture. In just one day, you'll go through sub-tropical to alpine vegetation zones as you stroll along your trail. The colorful Tamang towns will provide you with some insight into the people, their unique culture and their customs. Ganesh Himal Trek is a wonderful joy of trekking along fewer traveled paths to a magnificent destination nestled amongst lush hills and woods against the backdrop of the Himalayan peaks.

After a short drive from Kathmandu, the trek begins in Balche. We will hike from Balche to Singla Pass, the highest point on the trail. The trail passes through a dense forest of bamboo, pine, and fir trees in the Himalayas. From Singla pass (4,200m/13,779ft), we will have a panoramic view of the Ganesh Himal massif (7,893m), Manaslu (8,156m), Annapurna (8,091m), and Langtang (8,091m). The trail will descend to Sertung and Chalish after passing via the Singla pass. The next day, we will spend wandering through distant hills and mountains and relaxing at a hot spring on Ganesh Himal's lap, before heading to Neber to witness the best scenery from the Ri Gaon of a town called Jharlang at the opposite end. We will arrive in Jyamrung Danda, the endpoint of this trip, after two days of trekking from Ri Gaon. This location allows us to visit a historical royal home and watch the sunrise before boarding a bus to Dhading Besi, from where we will travel back to Kathmandu.

The Ganesh Himal trek is suitable for people of all ages, as it allows you to experience a distant lifestyle through overnight trekking and watch the stunning landscape of mountains as well as the mix of ethnic groups living nearby, each with its own culture, traditions, and religious practices. Ganesh Himal trekking is great for people looking to get away from the more well-known Annapurna, Everest, and Langtang regions. It is known for its pristine Tamang culture, breathtaking mountain views and vibrant rhododendron forest.
