Ganesh Himal

Ganesh Himal Trek in the Himalayas is one of the most superb treks between the Manaslu range and Budhi Gandaki Valley. The valley takes its name from the Hindu God of wealth, Ganesh.
This trek is best for people researching flowers and want to be at one with nature. The 16-day trek begins from the Betrawati Bazaar but the real pleasure starts just after the Singla pass that leads to the Jaisal Kund Lake. On the way to the stunning village of Jyamrung, we will encounter the rhododendron forest where we can explore the flora and fauna of the region.

Along the way, we will see the spectacular views of the Tibetan mountains, the Langtang region and many more. The paddy fields will provide a stunning green background to our trek along the way including 526 species of floras and 300 species of fauna!

Tour Details

The best time to trek here is between March to May (spring) or August to December (autumn). This is also the best time for cost, guides, itinerary and services. We have highly experienced professional guides to help you along the way. 

The trek itself will cover four peaks over 7000 metres and many over 6000 metres. The Ganesh Himal is named for the elephant-headed Hindu God. The region has amazing scenery, deep canyons, snow-capped mountains and local villages. 

Despite the relatively accessible nature of the trek, once we hit the routes, you will not see any other trekkers. From day one you will wake up to stunning views of the snow peaks and be passing through traditional villages. A couple of the days will be spent trekking in indigenous forests with beautiful old trees. The views from Sing La are outstanding with spectacular mountain panoramas. 

We are delighted to be able to offer a traditional trek, with plenty of excellent walking, that is of a moderate grade and yet is well off the beaten track.
