Ganesh Himal Expedition

40 Days


Description

Ganesh Himal 7446m is one of the beautiful mountains in the 7000 meter mountain in Nepal. Ganesh is Shiva’s son, the elephant-headed God who is the opener for obstructions. This region lies between Kathmandu and Pokhara. It is easily visible on a clear day from the Kathmandu city. The Ganesh Himal is similar in that it is near to Kathmandu but still rarely visited by tourists despite the relatively an easy trekking destination and pristine forests and villages of the region. This 12 day trek and expedition provides incredible views of Ganesh I (7401m), II (7150m) and Manaslu (8163m). The walk is mostly through typical Nepalese villages and jungles of oak, rhododendron, Bamboo, pine and others trees field.


This region is strangely undiscovered by tourists (because of basic accommodation), and less advertisement. Gorkha together with Trisuli, Dhading and Besi Sahar are the trekking gateways to the rewarding but little-known Ganesh Himal.
