Ganesh Himal Expedition is one of the beautiful mountains in the 7000-meter mountain in Nepal. It is easily visible on a clear day from Kathmandu city. The Ganesh Himal is near to Kathmandu but still rarely visited by tourists.
Despite the relatively easy trekking destination and pristine forests and villages of the region. In Nepal, there is a saying that the place where the lampstands are always dark, the reason is Ganesh Himal. Our 13 days trekking reaching Base Camp affords incredible nearly touchable views of Ganesh Himal 1st (7429m), II (7150m), and Mt. Manaslu (8163m).
The walking period is mostly through typical Nepalese villages, forests, and jungles of oak, rhododendron, bamboo, pine and other trees field. We must cross a single mountain pass (4,500m) which is the highest point of the trekking. we are well acclimatized to the altitude before we attempt it. We recommend the best season for this trip in late autumn and spring.
Late March through April offers the incredible opportunity to see the forests burst into color. In this season six to seven rhododendron species blooms around the whole destination before getting to Base Camp. This trip we start from Kathmandu, Syabrubensi by Bus then walk to Ganesh Himal and back to the Syabrubensi. The next day we take Bus to Kathmandu.
