Ganesh Himal Trek is an exclusive trek full of natural glories and magnificence. Walk into a lush landscape and charming villages with stunning views of glaciers and snow capped mountains. Ganesh himal trek area spreads over the central eastern region of Nepal. Though popular it is one of the isolated and less frequented trekking regions in Nepal. Only few travelers have visited this area and the description of the area by those who have traveled there has made Ganesh Himal Trek one of the more popular and desired treks in Nepal. Ironically the Ganesh Himal partitions the Langtang and Annapurna ranges. The name, “Ganesh” comes from the name of a Hindu deity – elephant headed Lord Ganesha who is regarded as a god of good fortune. The uncanny resemblance of the Himal with an elephant’s head gave it the name of Ganesh.
Ganesh Himal Trek is an enchanting trek that offers spectacular views of mountains like Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Boudha Himal, Hiunchuli and many other peaks of central Himalaya which is truly awe inspiring. Ganesh Himal Trek is a mix of untouched natural splendor, wilderness and friendly local inhabitants. The terraced farmlands, lush forests, meadows and charming villages along the way, makes this journey more enriching. Meanwhile the views of mountains in Ganesh range throughout the way looks stunning. Few people, few villages with the majestic views of mountain adds wilderness to this journey. Also the dense forests in Ganesh Himal region is a home to many rare species of birds and animals. They live in their natural habitat, untouched and undisturbed.
Moreover trek starts from Syabru Besi after around six hours drive from Kathmandu. The trail goes through some villages like Gatlang, Somdang to Tipling via Pangsang La. The Pangsang La pass offers some spectacular views of mountains in Ganesh Himal range with other neighboring ranges. And the trail further goes to Borang and ends at Kintang Bensi. Ganesh Himal Trek is an opportunity to interact with the rural people in the small village and observe different ways of life and culture. Afterward we cross two high passes in the region namely Shing La and Pangsang La Pass. Above all these passes offer some enchanting views of mountains in Ganesh Himal region.
