Ganesh Himal Trek

Description: Trip Cost: US$1799

This trek is one of the best treks in Nepal on the non-touristy trail. This trek involves no flight, the passes are not very difficult and the trekking region is relatively warmer. However, this trek offers an authentic experience of unspoiled Tamang villages, beautiful farm terraces and superb views of Ganesh Himal and other mountains.
The trek starts after a few hours of the drive along the Kathmandu to Dhunche highway.It passes through foothills and lowland farm terraces to ethnic Tamang villages on higher altitude. Along the trail, the trek offers superb close views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Buddha Himal, Hiunchuli and other peaks of central Himalaya.The highest altitude on this trek are the Shingla pass at 4200 m and Pansang La pass at 4100 m. These passes are also two finest viewpoints on the trek. The Ganesh Himal trek ends at Dhading Besi from where we catch our vehicle to Kathmandu.
