Ganesh Himal can be seen from the Kathmandu Valley which stands between massif Manaslu Himalayan range and Budi Gandaki valley in the west.

Ganesh Himal is named after the Hindu deity of good fortune (The elephant headed god Ganesh). Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III and Ganesh IV are mountain forming skyline of Ganesh Himal Range. Ganesh Himal Base Camp trekking route is famous for its exotic panoramic view of flora especially during spring season. The striking presentation of barberries, Premolars, orchids and a variety of ferns gives us magnificent view. Ganesh Himal Base Camp is Kalo Seto Kunda (Black and White Lake) i.e. made by the two lakes and their surface of the kalo kunda is covered by black stones whereas the Seto kunda is covered by white shinning stone. The Trekking trail takes us all the way along the emerald hills, an amazing Tamang village, Terraces filled with golden rice and mustard, natural hot water stream, deep Gorges, glaciers, with forests of blue pine, Spanish oak, and blossoming Rhododendron forest adds the beauty to the trail.

Ganesh Himal Trek starts from Betrawati (800m), we drive from Kathmandu by bus observing spectacular scenery of the pristine rhododendron forest, most beautiful hills, and rice terraces on the either side of the path via Trishuli bazaar to reach Betrawati. Then we moves along some of the interesting places like Singala pass, Pangsang Bhanjyang, Jaisal Kunda, Jyamrung. This trekking trail takes us through alluring villages towards Bhalche (2,020m).

  • Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and Spring (March - May) is the best trekking season for the trekking and mountaineering in Nepal.  Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate which offers beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring collects beautiful flowers, plants and rare animals Walking is also very much suitable during this season. 

Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February). Though Summer collects heavy monsoon rainfall it is very much clear to trek around Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas.  Tibet is much more favorable for Tibet trek. Everest,  Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.

  • Experience & Fitness:

Trekking in Nepal for Ganesh Himal Trek does not require past experience, though we have challenging route in Everest compared to Annapurna our itinerary suggests to walk comfortable distances. Trekking in Himalayas always takes us to challenging altitudes and rocky routes, demands proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain their strength. We always have both listed properly in our itinerary. However certain training like Running, Skipping and other workout will definitely help you in roots.  

  • Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a significant risk when trekking on any trails above about 2,500m. However good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent from altitude sickness. Every trekkers needs to be familiar with the heights so, for this we have life saving acclimatization days during the trek, peak climbing and expedition. We also provide certain medical support for your relief and emergency rescue through helicopter whenever guest require.
