Overview of Ganesh Himal Trekking

The Ganesh Himal Trek area is in the central-eastern region of Nepal. This region offers spectacular views, untouched natural splendor, wild and friendly residents. The Name of Mount Ganesh Himal is named after the elephant-headed god. The Ganesh Himal can be seen from the Kathmandu valley. It is the first chance in the Himalayas that forms the horizon. This huge Himalayan massif is located between the valleys. It established Budhi Gandaki in the west and Bhotekoshi in the east. As a result, it becomes Trishuli Khola at the bottom.

There are three main groups of peaks between Kathmandu and Pokhara, such as Langtang, Ganesh Himal, and Manaslu, including Mount Annapurna. This hike is ideal for those who want to escape the most popular regions of Annapurna and Everest. It is famous for its untouched Tamang culture, the spectacular view of the mountains, and the colorful rhododendron forest. Ganesh Himal Trek is conveniently located near Kathmandu.

During the Ganesh Himal trip, you will observe the different ways of lifestyle, culture, and connect with the rural population in small towns. On the way to the trekking time, you will get to know the lifestyle of this rural population in Nepal. You will also get a milestone and a kind of wooden machine for throwing rice, millet, and corn, the vital glamour of the village. In Sing-la-Pass you cross 4400 m above sea level, which offers an exceptional view of the Ganesh Himal, Langtang Himal, Manaslu and Annapurna massif of the Himalayan series. Not so many tourists are the specialty of this region. You may not be able to see foreigners, not even modern Nepalese other than locals

Essential Information

The best time to explore Ganesh Himal

The best time for the Ganesh Himal Trek is the fall season. By then, the monsoon would have cleared up, and the views of the Himalayas would be great. The months of September to November are the primary time for hiking in the Ganesh Himal with clear skies and cold temperatures.

The spring months of March to May, when the hills are full of flora, are also suitable for hiking in the Ganesh Himal. The climate is warmer at low altitudes and colder at high altitudes.

How hard is Ganesh Himal Trek

Ganesh Himal Trekking is considered strenuous grade trekking. On this trip, you have to walk 7/8 hours a day at an altitude of over 3,000 meters. You have to walk on the flat and steep paths for about 12 days. The temperature during strenuous walks can be up to -15 degrees Celsius. Trekking in cold weather and for such a long period requires reasonable fitness. You also need a certain level of mental toughness to complete this journey.

Proposed preparation

                       ·            Cardiovascular exercises such as running, cycling, jogging, push-ups, and pull-ups for approx. 4-5 days a week for three months before your trip are beneficial.

                       ·            You should also participate in developing core strength and muscle endurance during strength training.

                       ·            A walk on the hills in different weather conditions is excellent preparation for this trip.

                       ·            If you have access, kayaking and swimming can be a beneficial way to develop the strength and stamina required for this trip.

You must understand that you will bear the cost of the evacuation and return procedures, and it is your responsibility to pay for the evacuation or medical treatment. You must be fully aware of the effects of travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that our company guide may, under certain circumstances, initiate helicopter rescue (or other necessary) operations in medical emergencies without first asking approval from your insurance company.

Ganesh Himal Trekking Reviews

by Tash Douglas, Germany

Enjoyable Trek with helpful Guide and friendly porter

I have traveled to Nepal twice and on both occasions received invaluable service and assistance from the staff of Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd. Mr. Ganesh was a responsible and very professional person. The first time I walked on Annapurna and the second time was in Mount Ganesh Himal. Both trips were incredible, and I was able to see breathtaking scenery and wonderful people.

I strongly recommend those who plan to organize a trip to Nepal, to count on the wonderful service of this friend; excellent camping facilities. You will not regret it.
