Trip Highlights

Located to the northwest of Kathmandu, Ganesh Himal stands prominently amidst the Manaslu Himalayan range and the Budi Gandaki valley in the west, offering a striking view from the Kathmandu Valley. The range derives its name from Ganesh, the revered Hindu deity symbolizing good fortune. Comprising peaks such as Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, and Ganesh IV, the Ganesh Himal Range captivates trekkers with its diverse flora, particularly in spring. Along the trekking route to Ganesh Himal Base Camp, travelers are treated to a spectacle of exotic barberries, primroses, orchids, and ferns, infusing the journey with vibrant colors and fragrances. The trail meanders through lush hills, quaint Tamang settlements, terraced fields adorned with golden crops, natural hot springs, deep gorges, glaciers, and forests boasting blue pine, Spanish oak, and blooming rhododendrons, enhancing the scenic allure.

 

Commencing from Betrawati at an elevation of 800 meters, the Ganesh Himal Trek begins with a scenic bus ride from Kathmandu, traversing through rhododendron forests, hills, and rice terraces en route to Betrawati via Trishuli Bazaar. Enriched by stops at landmarks like Singala Pass, Pangsang Bhanjyang, Jaisal Kunda, and Jyamrung, the trail unveils picturesque villages and pristine rhododendron groves, eventually leading to Bhalche at 2,020 meters. Continuing through verdant hills to Kharka, the path ascends to Rupchet at 3,720 meters, predominantly inhabited by the Tamang community. Subsequently, the route winds through unspoiled forests and lakes, culminating in Phedi at 3,545 meters after crossing Singla Bhanjyang at 4,750 meters and Pansang Bhanjyang at 4,000 meters. A day of rest at Phedi allows exploration of the lakes and admiration of the majestic Ganesh Himal range before retracing the steps back to the historic city of Gorkha and onward to Kathmandu by bus.

 

At the heart of Ganesh Himal Base Camp lies Kalo Seto Kunda (Black and White Lake), named for its two distinct lakes: Kalo Kunda, adorned with black stones on its surface, and Seto Kunda, shimmering with white stones. This serene setting offers a tranquil retreat amidst the awe-inspiring beauty of Ganesh Himal.

Our Team:

Being the homeland of Himalayas, it’s obvious to have challenging routes, High altitude problems, Weather and other conditions; any of those situations is big enough to ruin your trip. Leading around the steep hills and rocky routes is not a job of common climbers and trekkers. Himalayan Magic Treks have been providing native leaders and staff working in this field perfectly for long years to overcome tough challenges and make your trip a golden memory. They are trained and well certified by the Government of Nepal. All of our staff have received emergency guidance in the Himalayas and have knowledge of first Aid for our guests.

Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and Spring (March-May) is the best trekking season for trekking and mountaineering in Nepal. Weather is mostly clear and the temperature is moderate which offers beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring collects beautiful flowers, plants, and rare animals Walking is also very much suitable during this season.

Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February). Though Summer collects heavy monsoon rainfall it is very much clear to trek around Mustang, Dolpo, and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas. Tibet is much more favorable for Tibet trek. Everest, Langtang, and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in the winter season.

Experience & Fitness:

Trekking in Nepal for Ganesh Himal Trek does not require past experience, though we have a challenging route in Everest compared to Annapurna our itinerary suggests to walk comfortable distances. Trekking in the Himalayas always takes us to challenge altitudes and rocky routes, demands proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain their strength. We always have both listed properly in our itinerary. However certain training like Running, Skipping and another workout will definitely help you in roots.

Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a significant risk when trekking on any trails above about 2,500m. However good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent altitude sickness. Every trekker needs to be familiar with the heights so, for this, we have life-saving acclimatization days during the trek, peak climbing, and expedition. We also provide certain medical support for your relief and emergency rescue through helicopter whenever guests require.

Eco-Friendly:

We only leave footprints! Global Nepal Treks is very much concern agency on environmental pollution and Global Warming. We are always serious and genuine towards our garbage during the trek, especially in Camping type. We collect all the rubbish and deposit it to a proper place to protect our environment. We also partake in every program conducted in KEEP Kathmandu Environmental Education Project. We also suggest all travelers protect our environment and Stop Global Warming.

Helping Hand

Profit oriented is not only our priority! we have been helping some of our very villagers from different corners of Nepal to sustain their social life and help them with education and required materials. We are always looking forward to interested candidates in this field to give helping hand to support and inspire them for their better beginning and good future.
