Ganesh Himal Region
The Ganesh Himal, named for the elephant-headed Hindu god, is home to four peaks over 7,000 metres and many over 6,000 metres. The region has spectacular scenery - deep canyons and snow-topped, soaring mountains are criss-crossed by local village paths. The trek traverses this area from west to east, with the high point of the Sing La pass offering fabulous views of the entire Nepalese Himalaya.
Ganesh Himal Region trekking holiday combines impressive scenery, excellent walking and an interesting cultural mix of Gurung and Tamang villages to visit. Added attractions are the relatively low altitude of the trek – the high point is 4,050m.-13,288ft, and the accessibility of the region, both the start and end of the trek can easily be reached by road from Kathmandu.
Despite the relative accessibility of the area, once you start trekking you may well not encounter any other trekkers. From day one of the trek you will wake up to views of stunning snow peaks, and be walking through traditional villages surrounded by verdant terraces. A couple of days are spent trekking in indigenous forests, with beautiful old trees, lichens and ferns. The views from Sing La are really outstanding with spectacular mountain panoramas. We are delighted to be able to offer a traditional trek, with plenty of excellent walking in this region, that is of a moderate grade and yet is well off the beaten track.
