Ganesh Himal Panorama Trek Overview

A trekking holiday on the secret trails of the Ganesh Himal in Nepal

Close to Kathmandu and yet rarely visited by Western trekkers, the Ganesh Himal is a region of timeless valleys, quiet trails, sleepy traditional villages, luxuriant forest and carefully tended terraced farmland. Named after the elephant god of Hindu mythology, the Ganesh is crowned on its northern edge by four 7000 metre summits, including Ganesh I (7406m). Traversing this stunning region from west to east, our trek also provides great views of other peaks, including those of the Annapurna and Manaslu massifs and of the Langtang Himal. With all access provided overland (no internal flights) this super 2-week trekking holiday starts out from Arughat Bazaar in the valley of the Burhi Gandaki. On our first day of trekking we leave behind the well-known Manaslu circuit and find ourselves well off-the-beaten-track as we hike between isolated villages, home to people of the Gurung and Tamang ethnic groups. There are no suitable lodges in this beautiful and unspoiled region and as a result this trek is only practicable with a full camping service – a flash back to the way it was everywhere in Nepal just a couple of decades ago. We trek for 11 days through an ever-changing landscape that mixes both forest and farmland, with often surprising views of snow-capped peaks. A couple of relatively short and leisurely days of trekking between Lapagaon and Sertung allow us some free time to make the most of the villages and culture of the Ganesh. Highlighting all that is special about Nepal trekking and with a high point at just 4000 metres, this is the perfect trek for keen hillwalkers making their first visit to this charming Himalayan country.
