Ganesh Himal

Our Ganesh Himal trek begins at Arughat also known as the starting point of Manaslu Circuit trek and then the trail traverses in an easterly direction across to the Langtang region. The Ganesh Himal mountain range is close to and is visible from Kathmandu however this region of Nepal is rarely visited and explored by trekkers. Ganesh Himal mountain range was named after the elephant headed god Ganesh and has seven summits with four of these higher than 7,000m.

During this trek you will walk on trails through terraced between traditional and friendly villages inhabited by Tamangs and Gurungs. Above the villages there are beautiful forests of bamboo, larch and rhododendron draped in lichen, mosses and ferns. From the passes one can see north to Ganesh Himal and to the west the major peaks of Annapurna South and Annapurna 2, Fishtail and Himalchuli.
