Ganesh Himal Trek starts and ends in the Central Eastern Nepal. The high valleys north of the Ganesh range on the Tibetan border are the complete wilderness and away from much of the trekkers. The trail starts from Trishuli following the upper valley landscapes. You will witness 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 opportunities to visit the inhabitants of these areas, who live in flat roofed fortress-like village in this remote village. The journey around these legendry mountains is among the most enjoyable though tough.
This is one of the legendry “Hidden Valleys ” of the Himalayas , guarded by 3 tiered pagoda set on rocky steep sided gorges to pine forest and alpine meadows leading to a huge glacier below the snow capped peaks. The trail ends at Syabrubensi and the following day we drive back to Kathmandu.
Treks in the Ganesh Himal region are designed to introduce you to a broad spectrum of life in different Nepalese communities and varieties of beautiful scenery. 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.
