Ganesh Himal Trek

Duration: 18 Days

About Ganesh Himal Trek

Ganesh Himal Trek, a trek to the remote area located in the central region of Nepal between two popular mountain ranges; Langtang and Manaslu. The Ganesh Himal is named after an elephant-headed god ’Ganesh’ from the Hindu mythology, who is a symbol of good fortune. The Ganesh Himal Trek goes through a less explored area of Nepal with stunning scenery and friendly villagers inhabited mostly by Gurung and Tamang. The trek provides trekkers an off the beaten path experience backed by beautiful villages, unspoiled & unchanged culture and tradition, a diverse range of flora & fauna, majestic waterfalls, terraced farms, and stunning mountain scenery along the quiet trail.

Buddhism, as well as Shamanism practices and rituals, can be seen abundantly throughout the trail. Moreover, the spectacular views of the entire Ganesh Himal range (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, and Ganesh IV), Manaslu, Boudha Himal, Ghode Himal and a little bit of the Annapurna range will enrich our journey to next level. Likewise, wild animals like Himalayan Thar, Gaur, Langur and Musk Deer can often be spotted on the trail. The Ganesh Himal trek starts from several routes and ends depending on the itinerary, but we start from Barpak and end the trek at Syabrubesi.
