Ganesh Himal and High Passes

Trekking to Ganesh HimalGanesh Himal and High Passes trek is one the most spectacular and culturally diverse treks in Nepal. The region is without tea-houses, and so seldom visited by other trekkers. For lovers of high and wild places this trek offers some of the most impressive view into Tibet as well as the mountain of Mt. Manaslu, Budhha Himal, Gorkha Himal, Lamjung Himal, Ganesh Himal range I, II, III and the spectacular peaks of the large Annapurna Himalayas.
