The Shing La pass  is located in central Nepal, about a day's drive from Kathmandu, and alternates between Langtang National Park and the Manaslu Conservation Area.

 It is a region rich in geographical, cultural, and biological diversity, home to more than 200 bird species, hundreds of species of colorful wildflowers, and hundreds of species of priceless medicinal plants. It is also a region that is mined for its valuable stones, rubies and crystals. This region is less travelled than some other regions because it is one of Nepal's best-kept secrets.

The mythical Hindu deity Ganesh, who has an elephant for a head, is honoured with the name Ganesh Himal. A "Great Himalayan Chain" is visible in the skyline, formed by the Ganesh Range Peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, and Ganesh IV), which shine out like crystals.

The Singla Pass / Ganesh Himal Trek is intended for hikers who would prefer a quieter, more unique camping experience over a crowded, teahouse trek. However, a recently launched homestay trek named Ruby Valley Trek, which is a survey by trekking organization Associations of Nepal, is located after the Sertung village (TAAN).

Things to Remember During Shing La pass 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
