Ganesh Himal is named after the Hindu Elephant headed god as the fourth peak resembles a trunk of an elephant. Ganesh Himal with its adjoining group peaks makes it truly an impressive bulk of mountains that can be seen from the capital Kathmandu. Situated at 70 km aerial distance North-West of Kathmandu, the highest peak Ganesh-I (7422 m) with Ganesh-II, III and IV are the main peaks. Ganesh Himal Trekking takes you around one of the most magnificent countries where fewer groups of foreign trekkers often venture. Now Ganesh Himal area is getting slowly popular among trekkers in quest of a new, fresh and raw Himalayan destination, due to its remoteness from mainstream trekking trails. Here one can enjoy walking off the beaten tracks, into pristine wilderness. Vertex Holiday presents this remarkable adventure Ganesh Himal Trekking for all types of visitors and age-group. The highest point is at Pansang Bhanjyang (a pass of 3, 850 m high). The rest of the walk is moderate and adventurous around a normal altitude of Himalayan high landscape . This makes the trekkers at ease and relaxed to enjoy the whole marvelous adventure on Ganesh Himal Trekking.
The adventure starts from Kathmandu heading towards mid-west Nepal. Arughat is a popular place and gateway to Manaslu circuit, Tsum Valley, and Ganesh Himal trekking. Our hike heads east from Arughat crossing a bridge over Budi-Gandaki River towards rural farming villages. The climb leads above the warm valleys of Gorkha and Dhading district to reach remote and isolated villages of Khading, Tiri-Gaon, and Chalisa. The route offers cool fresh mountain air, overlooking giant peaks of Ganesh, Manaslu, and Langtang Himal and as far towards Annapurna Himalaya range. The route goes into the complete wilderness, covered in dense pine and rhododendron forest. As adventure progress, the climb leads to the highest point of the journey at Pansang Bhanjyang from where overwhelming panorama of beautiful country landscapes, view of the high snow peak range of Ganesh, Manaslu, Langtang and Annapurna can be viewed. After a fascinating time and experience around high beautiful Ganesh Himal trekking, the route heads downhill to low warm farm areas. FInnally our Ganesh Himal Trekking concludes at Trisuli Bazaar then we drive back to Kathmandu,
Ganesh Himal Trekking is different from other normal mainstream and popular trekking. The trekking itinerary we have set is a guide-line, which can differ some days due to the availability of safe drinking water and space for camping ground. This trek leads to absolute mountain wilderness away from villages and human settlement for some days. There are several routes to Ganesh Himal Trekking, where one can drive to the Langtang Himal area of Rasuwa district to start the trek, the other routes being from Dhading and the Gorkha districts. Walking distance and hours mentioned can also differ, depending upon fitness of the trekker, as well as change of designated overnights camps where needed. For this type of adventure tented camping is necessary, we will have all logistic support with excellent camping equipment with a separate kitchen unit. This includes expert guide, field and kitchen staff with the cook, porters to carry all camping gear and foods for the whole trip. Springtime is much beautiful with wild-flowers in seasonal bloom, especially the rhododendron (national flower of Nepal), with different bright colors from tall trees to the bushes. The chances of encountering with wildlife is also high, as the forests in this region are home to some common species like deer , fox , porcupines and some endangered species like Red Panda.
