Ganesh Himal Culture Trekking

Ganesh Himal Culture Trekking

Ganesh Himal Culture trekking is famous for unspoiled Tamang culture, spectacular views of mountains and colorful rhododendron forests. The Ganesh Himal trek lies about 70 km north-northwest of Kathmandu between the Manaslu and Langtang Himal ranges. The Trisuli river valley on the east separates it from the Langtang Himal; the Budhi (Buri) Gandaki valley and the Shyar Khola valley on the west separate it from the Shringi Himal and the Mansiri Himal.

During the Ganesh Himal cultural trekking, you can observe the different ways of the life and culture, and have close contact with the rural people in the sparely settled villages. You will see the village lifestyle of those living in these more isolated rural areas of Nepal, almost all of which are Tamangs (semi Mongolion). The Ganesh Himal trek is known for its exposure to and immersion into the Tamang culture.

Accommodation on the Ganesh Himal trek are home stays or tented camping.  Homestay is a living and eating arrangement with a host family who offers an extra, private guest room or space for our clients. Trekkers can also use tents for camping at night as well as for dining, sleeping and washing/toilet needs. We also provide mattresses, down-filled sleeping bags, tables and seating.

The Ganesh Himal Culture Trekking route will cross through the Sing-La pass (4600m) which offers an excellent view of the Ganesh Himal massive, Langtang, Manaslu, and Annapurna mountains, etc. The trek begins from Trisuli, 72 km north from Kathmandu, and ends at Arughat Bazar or Gorkha Bazar. Gorkha Bazar is the birthplace of the founder of Nepal, King Prithivi Narayan Shah.
