Ganesh Himal Trek

The beautiful mountains of Ganesh Himal region can be seen even from the Kathmandu Valley. Though the area is within easy access from Kathmandu, very few trekkers visit there. It is one of the precious areas where the simple life of the Himalayas can be still observed.Trek in the Ganesh Himal region are designed to introduce you to a broad spectrum of life mountain communities and breathtaking scenes. You may visit base camp of the Ganesh Himal where there are two lakes - Black and white. Twin waterfalls - ganga and Jamuna, bring joy to your heart. This trek is recommended by many trekkers though it is not as popular as Annapurna and Everest.

This course starts from Trisuli Bazar in the semitropical sun, goes up to a fairly high elevation, where a close view of Ganesh II (7,163meters) and Ganesh IV (7,052meters) can be enjoyed. The area is still beyond the reach of modern constructions and no lodge accomodations are available for the visitors. As a trek organiser, we suggest the trekkers to make a well preparation before you depart for Ganesh Himal Trek. During the trek you will pass the highest elevation of more than 4,000 meters which requires your special caution for altitude sickness.

Visiting this area in March and April and lets you enjoy the red with magnificent Rhododendron, national flower of Nepal, blooms at mountainside. You will get an option to visit Gorkha -- from where King Prithiwi Narayan Shah dreamt and founded Modern Nepal. Before 1740's AD, Gorkha was a small independent nation and Prithivi Naryan Shah was the King. He fought several wars to unite the tiny kingdoms spread throughout the teritory, where now is Nepal. His Palace situated at the top of the hill at Gorkha is well preserved. Gorkha is the homeland of original "Gorkha Warriors", who fought the worlds' memorable wars. The Ganesh Himal trek begins at Trishuli, a four hours drive from Kathmandu and ends at Gorkha, a six hour drive to return to Kathmandu.
