Ganesh Himal is named after the Hindu elephant God-Ganesh. The Ganesh Himal is a range of six major peaks that form a natural barrier with Tibet in the Himalayan ranges west of Langtang valley. Ganesh Himal is named after the legendary elephant-headed Hindu God Ganesh. The Ganesh Range Peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, and Ganesh IV) form a chain of mountains in the skyline. The highest peak in the range is Yangra (Ganesh I) at 7422 meters.
The Ranges are inhabited by different ethnic groups like Gurung, Tamang and Magar which gives trekkers a unique cultural experience.
The Ganesh Himal trek begins at Kathmandu with a scenic drive to Samari Bhanjyang via Trishuli Bazaar the starting point of the trek. From there we will follow a trail that passes terraced farmland and through traditional villages with evidence of their unique customs and cultures.
The trail circumnavigates the Ganesh Himal base camp and passes through numerous villages on the way.. The trek begins at Samari Bhanjyang (via Trishuli Bazaar) and leads on to Katunje Bazaar, Kintang Phedi, Jharlang, Chalise, Hindung, Rajgang Kharka, Kalo Seto Kunda (Black and White Lake), Ganesh Himal Base Camp and returning to Rajgang Kharka before heading to Chalise, Laba Besi, Manyang Bhanjyang, Majhgaun, Budathum and finally to Arughat Bazaar where we return by road back to Kathmandu.
The following information will give you some idea about what you need to bring for the trek. It is important you do not forget the essential items, as this will determine your comfort and safety on the trek. Equally important is that you do not burden yourself with unnecessary equipment on the trek.
(Note our company guide will carry the medicines and first aid kits during the trek. However, we recommend you bring your personal first-aid kit as well)
You will be accommodated in 3-star hotels in Kathmandu. During the trek, we will be staying at lodges/ teahouses. You may find net and clean teahouses - You will be staying at a teahouse/tent in higher elevation.
In Kathmandu, your hotel includes breakfast, whereas all meals (breakfast, lunch, and dinner) will be provided during the trek. A staple food of the Ganesh Himal regions is potatoes, oats, buckwheat, Sherpa stew, and Tibetan bread. Sherpa’s’ started farming potatoes when the first seeds were introduced to the region in the early 90s. There is a limited choice of food at higher elevations and except many potato dishes. Potatoes are high in carbohydrates – an excellent source of energy needed at high altitudes.
We use a private car for sightseeing and for the airport to hotel pick and drop off. We use public transportation or local buses during the trek.
This can be a challenging trek where you often have to walk 6-7 hours a day. You need past experience of hiking or trekking but if you have done any kind of trekking activities then it is always a plus! We have met people from all walks of life, shapes, and sizes who have completed the trek. The only difficult part is when altitude sickness strikes and the effect that it can have on your body. Before leaving for Nepal it is good if you can prepare yourself physically by increasing your stamina and oxygen intake.
