A trek to the eastern parts of the Himalayas near Kathmandu is a great way to experience the beauty of this country beyond the popular and sometimes overcrowded Everest and Annapurna regions. Join us on this 12-day trek and get the chance to travel to the base camp of Ganesh Himal.

Named after Lord Ganesh, the elephant-headed god in Hindu mythology, Ganesh Himal is in fact a range comprising of Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III and Ganesh IV. These peaks are separated from the nearby Langtang Himal range by the Trisuli-Gandaki Valley in the east.

This private, guided trek starts with a long bus drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi, which takes seven to eight hours. Head for Kispang the next day followed by Thulo Chaur and Gonga. Reach the base camp of the mountain range on Day 7. Spend two nights in the area and savor its breathtaking beauty before its time to return. You will cross two mountain passes during this trek, namely Pansang La and Sing La.

Please note that accommodation during this trek will be in tented camps since tea houses are not available on the trail. The best season to carry out this trek is from February to May and August to December. Please scroll down to the itinerary section for more details.

“The trek was much harder than expected. We really enjoyed it but I needed to hire a horse to help climb the thousands of step.”

“We trekked for 6-8 hours a day and covered the route in 10 days. Days 3 (poonhill climb), 9 and 10 (800 floors descent) were the most challenging. It's a very scenic trekking route and because of its popularity, the facilities along the way were pretty good and more than what I expected such as guest houses with wifi, western food and hot showers. Come prepared for steps; there are tons of them.”
