Best trek season

The weather is one of the most important factors to consider when deciding to trek The Ganesh Himal Trek. Each trek season provides a different experience and has different flavors, but for an easy trek with clear skies, cool temperatures, and great trail conditions autumn and spring are the best seasons. The winters are cold with snowfalls at the high trek elevations, and the monsoon during summer brings heavy rain, making the trails wet and slippery.

January – February

These are the coldest months, especially from early January to early February. Though the day may be warm and admirable with clear skies, the nighttime would be extremely cold. These are the trek months for you if you love the snow and do not have a cold allergy.


March – April

These are some of the best months to trek in the Ganesh Himal Base Camp. The weather is very favorable, and stunning views of the central Himalayan ranges bring flocks of trekkers to the trails. Temperatures start increasing in the mid of March, and the environment gets favorable for the trek. Many trekkers choose to trek this region during March and April.


May – June

The favorable trekking season continues right before the rainfall as the mix of spring and summer, during May and June, ushers a great trek climate in the Ganesh Himal Base Camp trekking regions. The absence of rain, clear skies, and cool temperatures make May and June desirable months to hike to the Ganesh Himal Base Camp.


July – August

The rainfall will be in full swing during these months, especially in the lower trek regions. The rainfall can make the trek tough and thrilling at the same time. Due to rain, the vegetation becomes lush, and the waterfalls and rivers swell. However, lots of water can result in wet and slippery trails. The rain may also obstruct the views.


September – October

The monsoon recedes, the skies get clear, the temperatures start to get optimum, and the trails will be in fabulous condition, making Ganesh Himal Base Camp treks awesome. Daytime temperatures can reach 20℃ and lower to 5℃ during the night. The most important festivals – Dashain, Tihar, Chhat, and Indrajatra – fall during these months, adding a festive mood to the trek trails.


November -December

As winter slowly begins, snowfalls begin in the Ganesh Himal Region, and it is eventually tough to trek. Nights will start to get colder. November treks are possible months with sparkling days. The daytime temperatures are stable and constant, and the views of the clear blue sky and the mountains look phenomenal. From December, the temperature starts to get cold, and snowfalls begin in high elevations.

The weather in the Himalayas is unpredictable and changes quickly.


Our trek involves trekking for several days at elevations above 3500m, where altitude sickness is a significant risk. We have designed our itinerary to allow for gradual acclimatization, but symptoms can still occur.

Our trek leaders and guides are well-trained in first aid and experienced in the Himalayas. If you experience any symptoms, please inform your group leader or guide. They will provide precautions and suggest descending if necessary. Remember to stay hydrated and listen to your body, as some individuals may be more susceptible to altitude sickness.

If someone in the trek group falls sick, your group leader has the authority to decide whether to continue or descend immediately based on the overall team condition. In emergencies, we deploy a helicopter to bring the affected person back to safety (funded by insurance).

Trip Grade: Fitness level, Medical, and Health

The Ganesh Himal Base Camp trek is challenging but also offers beautiful rewards. Each day typically involves hiking for 4 to 7 hours, with uphill and steep downhill and straightforward sections on rocky and stone-paved paths. While anyone can participate, being in good physical shape and having prior trekking or exercise experience can make the trek more comfortable. We recommend you participate in stamina-building exercises such as cycling, jogging, or swimming a few weeks before the trek departure day. Remember, the fitter you are, the more you will enjoy the trek.

However, individuals with medical conditions such as heart or lung disease should consult their doctor before attempting this trek, as it involves moderate to strenuous climbing. We provide necessary medical supplies during the trek.

Trekking group/single

We can handle any group size, with a minimum of two persons, to form a group. For groups of 12 or more, we provide an assistant guide. If you have your group, you will be eligible for discounts proportionate to your team size. However, you will not get any discounts for groups we assemble.

A typical day on the trek

Each day on the trek offers a unique experience of hiking, witnessing the scenery, taking pictures, tasting local delicacies, and exploring local villages. Our experienced and friendly Sherpa guides will share information and historical facts about the places as you visit them. The porters who carry your luggage will also be with us. However, we expect you to carry a small backpack with your valuables and essential documents.

The day begins with an early morning cup of tea or coffee. After packing your bags and having a hearty breakfast, you will set off on your hike around 7-8 AM, depending on the duration and nature of the day’s walk. After trekking for three to four hours, you will have lunch along the way to our next destination and then continue after an hour of rest.

The afternoon walk is typically shorter, lasting about two to three hours. Once you reach your overnight lodging, you will have free time to explore nearby places. We will serve you dinner around 6-7 PM. After dinner, your trek leader will brief you about the next day’s plan. Then you can spend your time sharing your experiences with your fellow trekkers, playing games such as cards, monopoly, or chess, reading books, or learning a few light Nepali words before heading to bed.


Mobile phone coverage is available on most trek routes, but reliability may vary depending on your network provider. To ensure communication with your loved ones, you can buy a SIM card in Kathmandu. However, at high altitudes, mobile network coverage may not be available. Friendship World Trek remains in contact with all our trek teams at least once a day, to learn about trek progress and ensure client safety, security, and comfort. Internet options are limited. 4G service is available in some trek regions.

Extra personal expenses

Friendship World Trek covers major costs during the trek but not all expenses. The meals and accommodations in Kathmandu are not included as a part of the package, so trekkers will have to meet these expenses on their own.

Kathmandu provides various options for hotels and lodges, both luxury and budget, which you can book online. Clients should bring spending money to cover costs such as accommodations in Kathmandu, visa fees, travel insurance, beverages, snacks, tips for the trekking crew, souvenirs, etc. We recommend bringing cash in dollars (major currencies) and exchanging them for Nepalese currency, as it is the only accepted form of payment during the trek.

Electricity, water

On the Ganesh Himal trek, electricity to recharge the camera and mobile is available at all lodges for a small fee. You can recharge your electronics, such as your mobile or camera at these lodges. Bottled water is readily available in en-route shops/hotels/tea houses. However, for environmental concerns, we advise you to carry a water bottle and instead buy boiled water from lodges/tea houses and put it in your water bottle. We also recommend you use water purification pills before drinking water. If you do not have these pills, we can provide them to you.

For hygiene concerns, you should not drink water from rivers, taps, or wells in trek regions.

Travel insurance

Trekking in the Ganesh Himal region requires proper preparation and planning. You should not take high-altitude mountain treks lightly, as they come with inherent high-altitude risks. So adequate travel insurance is a must to participate in the Ganesh Himal trek. Your travel insurance must cover medical costs and emergency repatriation, including helicopter rescue and evacuation expenses up to the highest trek altitude (Pansang La Pass, 3,842m).

We can provide you with recommendations for insurance companies, but we do not sell insurance policies in any shape or form. Our recommendations are based on our previous clients’ experiences.

We kindly request that you send us detailed information about your insurance policy once you have booked your trek. In emergencies, we will use the insurance policy and the essential documents you provided to arrange a quick and effective rescue operation, transfer for emergency medical assistance, etc.

Before buying your insurance, call your insurance company and double-check if your insurance covers helicopter rescue up to the highest trek altitude at Pansang La Pass and the treatment costs. Do not just rely on what insurers say on their website.

Passport and visa

All foreign nationals, except Indians, must have a valid visa to enter Nepal. Citizens from most countries can get an on-arrival visa at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu and at immigration checkpoints along Nepal’s borders with India and Tibet. You can easily extend your visa at the central immigration office (

To apply for an on-arrival visa, you will need a passport with at least six months of validity, one passport-size photo, and visa fees. The current cost for a 30-day stay is US$50, which you can pay in cash.

Children under the age of 10 are eligible for a free visa.

Visa regulations can change without prior notice, so please check for the latest information.

Citizens of China, as well as citizens of the South Asian Association for Regional Cooperation (SAARC) countries (Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka), are eligible for a free visa. Citizens not eligible for an on-arrival visa include Nigeria, Ghana, Zimbabwe, Swaziland, Cameroon, Somalia, Liberia, Ethiopia, Iraq, Palestine, and Afghanistan. If you are a citizen of one of these countries, you must contact your local Nepalese embassy.

Visitors may be requested to provide return flight tickets and specify the length of their stay in Nepal. We recommend scheduling at least 1-2 extra days at the end of the trip in case of delays. If there are no delays we can arrange additional activities during your free days.
