Ganesh Himal Expedition Nepal

Ganesh Himal (7429m) is a sub-range of the Himalayan mountain range, lie between the Budhi Gandaki and Trisuli Gandaki valleys, northwest of Kathmandu and east of Langtang Himal.

  • Some of the peaks of Ganesh Himal lie on the boarder with Tibet. Although the peaks are of no height of more than 7500m. the Ganesh Himal enjoys great vertical relief over the nearby valleys, specially Ganesh II & Ganesh III . the highest peak in Ganesh Himal is Ganesh I ( Yangra ). Although the peak was first attemted by H. W. Tilman’s team back in 1950, the first ascent took place in 1955 by a Franco-Swiss Expedition team via the Southeast Face and Ridge. Ganesh II ( Ganesh NW ) is notable for its exceptional steep rise above local terrain rising 5800m. from Burhi Gandaki in a horizontal distance of about 16 km. There were several unsuccessful attempts on this peak from 1950s and finally summited in 1981 via North east Spur (drive) and North Face.

    The Ganesh Himal Massif is a family of peaks with a radiant masterpiece of Ganesh at (7,422m). Selected ridge Offer Mountain including panorams Ganesh. The Ganesh Himal trekking area is located in the central eastern region of Nepal. This region offers spectacular views, off the beaten track trails away from the tourists and the chance to encounter traditional local people living a time-honored lifestyle. The name of the mountain range was given in honor of the elephant-headed God of Good Fortune, Ganesh, and son of Lord Shiva. The Ganesh Himal range can be seen clearly from the Kathmandu Valley. The range of Ganesh Himal peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, Ganesh IV) are crystal clear and is the “Great Himalayan Chain” forming the skyline. This great Himalayan massif is contained between the valley of the Budhi Gandaki in the west and Bhote Koshi River in the east, which becomes Trishuli in the lower section.

    The treks in the Ganesh Himal Region are designed to introduce you to a broad spectrum of life in different Nepalese communities and a variety of beautiful scenery. You may visit the Base Camp of Ganesh Himal where there are two lakes – Black and White. Twin waterfalls – Ganga and Jamuna, bring joy to your heart. Visit this area in March or April, and you see the mountainsides red with magnificent Rhododendron blooms – Nepal’s national flower. Visit Gorkha, the birthplace of modern Nepal. This was the home of King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who fought many wars to unite the tiny kingdoms spread throughout the land now known as Nepal.His palace can be seen on the top of a hill at Gorkha. This area is also the homeland of the original Gurkha warriors.

    The treks begin at Trishuli, a three hours drive from Kathmandu. During the rest of our 25 days trip, we observe the different ways of life, culture and come in contact with the rural people in the small village, passing through the dense forestations and meadows. We cross through high Shing La Pass and Pangsang La Pass which offers an excellent view of the massif Ganesh Himal, Langtang, and Annapurna. It is a fully supported camping trek, our trekking crew will carry the luggage and supplies, the camp cook will prepare hot meals for you and the Sherpas will fix the tents. You just carry a light daypack and on average walk for 5-6 hours per day. Climbing stairs and rocks, hiking over terraces and into the jungle, crossing suspension bridges over raging rivers and canyons and walking through the clouds above 4,000 meters towards snowy peaks, an unforgettable trekking experience, and end at Gorkha, On the last day of the trip we take a bus ride back to Kathmandu or Pokhara or Chitwan from Gorkha where we spend the final night of our trip.

    I made it home safely and even was upgraded to business class for the first part of my flights home from Kathmandu to Abu Dhabi. Which was great.

    I would like to thank you for organising everything whilst I was in Nepal. You are certainly Mr FixIt when it comes to sorting out itineraries, hotels, guides, flights, buses, etc.This made my trip run very smoothly without any hitch. I will pass on you details to anyone I know who is looking to travel to Nepal.

    I also saw Ben a couple of days ago, he’s fine. He and Kate are expecting their 2nd child next year which is great news, he is really missing Nepal and we are talking about coming back.

    Do you have a postal address for Yala Adventure that I can courier some equipment for Pasang to. I have spoken to a few friends at some uk outdoor equipment distributors and have managed to get a pair of boots for him, free of charge which I would like to send over.
    I like to help out where I can and this would be a great way to say thank you.

    Hope all is well with you and your family

    Regards, your friend
