All About the Trip

One of the best and quickest hikes in the northwest of Kathmandu, the Ganesh Himal Trek is perfect for people looking to escape the throng and have a peaceful stroll. It is a voyage into the expansive Eastern Nepal, where magnificent valleys meet smiling, snow-capped mountains.One of the most accessible trekking routes from the city is the Ganesh Himal Trek, which offers the tremendous pleasure of traveling over less strenuous routes to a paradise in the Himalayas, between beautiful hills and forests.

This two-week tour will take you to the Ganesh Himal Region, where you'll meet the local ethnic groups in attractive towns that are rich in historic cultures, traditions, and ways of life. It takes you through remote trails, amazing wetlands, and pristine coniferous woods.The area boasts amazing flora, including an impressive display of Berberis, Primula, Orchids, and Ferns, valleys bursting with yellow double Jasmine blossoms, forests heavily planted with Spanish oaks, a blue pine, and red, pink, and white pastel-toned luminous Rhododendron blooms in the spring that turn the entire forest into a kaleidoscope of vibrant hues.

Ganesh Himal Trekking is a delightful lonely journey into nature up to 4,050 m above sea level due to which you may feel isolation and quiet in the secluded and secret valley to explore yourself. Ganesh Himal Trekking is not as well-known as Annapurna Treks and Everest Trekking Trails.The Ganesh Himal Trekking trek offers breathtaking views of the Ganesh Himal Highlands, Annapurna Mountains, Manaslu Mountains, Langtang Mountains, Lamjung Himal, Himalchuli, and other peaks.

The mountain has the name of the well-known Hindu deity Ganesh (Elephant headed God). Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, and Ganesh IV are the four crystalline peaks that make up the Ganesh Range, which is visible in the distance. As a result, the Ganesh Himal Peak's construction resembles the elephant-headed deity.

Amazing rock formations, cascades, dramatic paintings of the surrounding area, and mountainous vistas may be seen. On our 15 day trip to Ganesh Himal, you will begin in Kispang and end in Jyamrung Danda. En route, you will cross an Alpine meadow and arrive at a sizable glacier beneath snow-capped mountains.

Trekking Challenges on Ganesh Himal

Ganesh Himal Trip is regarded as a rewarding but slightly challenging trek. At Sing La Pass, which is 4050 meters above sea level, you will reach the highest point of this nine-day trekking expedition. Long, steep descents as well as a high ascent across rocky routes and wooded areas characterize the trekking trails. The distance between each destination can be covered by walking for an average of 5 to 7 hours. The journey is more enjoyable and comfortable to take the fitter the hikers are, the better. It will be quite helpful for this expedition if you have previous experience with such lengthy walks or treks.


Best Time to Trek Ganesh Himal

The ideal months to go on the Ganesh Himal Trek are March and April because of the rhododendron blooms in the hills and highlands, and October and November because of the beautiful blue skies and breathtaking mountain views.


Spring (March-May) 

Spring is one of the greatest times to hike and climb in the Himalayas since it not only offers sunshine and warmer temperatures but also a thriving natural flora, including the renowned huge Rhododendrons, which gives the landscape a brilliant, vivid texture.


Summer/Monsoon (June – August) 

Since monsoon season typically lasts from late May to the middle of September in Nepal, hiking is typically not advised during this time. During this time, it is quite hot, it is raining a lot, and it is uncomfortable. But that doesn't mean you can't admire the majestic nature of the Himalayas! Trekking at this time may be dangerous, but the scenery is breathtaking.


Autumn (September – November) 

After the monsoon passes, the Himalayan region is settled, with clear mountain views and dust-free skies. The biggest festivals, Dashain and Tihar, are observed during this time, adding even more cultural magnificence to the natural beauty displayed. This makes for the ideal trip in the Himalayas of Nepal.


Winter (December – February)

Since the Ganesh Himal Trek offers clear skies and stunning sunset vistas, it is also possible to complete it in the winter. However, it will be quite challenging to walk because the snow may close the pathways.

The mountain and the brilliant blue sky are wonderful because of the relatively steady and stable daytime temperatures. The nights, however, are much colder. Although it is not advised, you could start this walk in the winter if you enjoy adventure and want to try something new.

Things to Remember During Ganesh Himal Trek

  • Hotel and lodge options are limited or nonexistent, so bring your own tent.

  • Don't forget to pack heavy Gore-tex jackets for the chilly weather and wear lighter clothing during the day as temperatures might reach 70 to 80 F. The track might receive a lot of snow in certain places.

  • Take dry food and snacks with you because there aren't many communities in this area and there won't be much food available if you have to seek sanctuary there at night.
  • Bring rain gear, since the Pangsang Pass is renowned for its frequent torrential downpours and hailstorms.
  • Take the appropriate medications and emergency supplies to prevent altitude sickness.
  • Make sure you spend at least a day discovering the nearby communities and getting to know the locals.

Food During Ganesh Himal Trek

This hike includes a highly practical food box. The package includes breakfast, lunch, and meals. The meals will be the greatest options from the lodge's menu and will be delicious, wholesome, fresh, and sanitary. The food on the menu combines traditional regional, Asian, and western fare. We strongly advise drinking liquids at high altitudes, such as green tea, lemon tea, hot lemon, ginger, and garlic soup (must), etc., for health reasons. Although there is a wide selection of Nepalese and foreign food easily accessible for you to pick from, meals in Kathmandu are not included in the packages.

Accommodation in Ganesh Himal Trek

The 14-day Ganesh Himal Trek is a challenging hike that includes 8 nights spent in mountain lodges with modest amenities and great hospitality from the locals. As you would want to relax before and after the hike, two nights in Kathmandu are necessary but not included in the program. For all different types of budgets, there is a fantastic selection of hotels. The bedding includes a bed with mattresses, a blanket, and pillows, virtually on a twin-sharing basis. There will be an additional charge for hot showers. In the Himalayan area, Mountain Guide Trek & Expedition enjoys positive public relations with the regional service providers.

Ganesh Himal Trek Map


It is not very difficult to complete the Ganesh Himal Trek. The difficulty ranges from moderate to adventurous due to the ascent through high ridges, and there are no difficulties with acute mountain sickness like there are on other difficult climbs in the Nepal Himalaya.

The first ascent of Ganesh I was done on October 6, 1955. The well-known Swiss mountaineers Raymond Lambert, Pierre Vittoz, and Eric Gauchar, as well as Mme. Claude Kogan, a Frenchwoman, were among the summit party.

For foreign tourists, this hike typically costs $1500 per person. However, the price can be negotiable if you're traveling in a big group.

The Height of Ganesh Himal I  lies in the elevation at  7422 m (24350 ft)  Ganesh Himal II at 7,118 m (23,353 ft)  and Ganesh Himal III at 7,043 m (23,107 ft)  from The sea level respectively .  

Ganesh Himal is located 70 kilometers north of Kathmandu. The trip is moderately challenging and takes about 7-8 hours per day.

Ganesh Himal Base Camp Trek is typically completed in 12–14 days as part of conventional programs. You will have a great time on this walk because Nepal's splendor is almost entirely undiscovered.
