Tour Overview

Ganesh Himal trek takes you to the remote and pollution-free region of central Nepal. You will walk through the culturally rich ethnic villages, dense forest with gorgeous Himalayan flora and fauna; as you trek along with the backdrop of the breathtaking peaks of Ganesh, Manaslu, and Langtang.

Ganesh Himal trekking provides unusual sights of the traditional lifestyle and culture of the rural people. The trekking begins at Betrawati with a mesmerizing view of the Ganesh Himal range. The entire trek to Ganesh Himal is full of impressive alpine flora and fauna. The dense forest teemed with Spanish oak, blue pine and rhododendron set the whole forest alight with colors. Starting with a scenic drive to Betrawati via Trisuli Bazaar; the trek begins along the forested ridges passing through primitive Tamang villages; then crossing hot springs, gorges and glaciers, and magnificent scenic places.

Ganesh Himal trekking is not as popular as Annapurna and Everest region trekking. In the spring, the entire region blooms out with bright Rhododendron flowers. People living here are very friendly and hospitable. They show a hospitable welcome dance to the visitors in the villages. Ghatu dance that takes place during Chandi Purnima in the Nepalese month of Chaitra (March-April); also Maruni dance during Dashain and Tihar are very popular. Thus, in the evening just near your camp, you can enjoy cultural dance by women groups.
