Introduction to Ganesh Himal Trek
Ganesh Himal Trek is ideal for travelers who want to stay away from popular and crowded places like the Annapurna region and Everest region. Located northwest of Kathmandu valley, the Ganesh Himal Trek is a non-tourist trekking trail.
This trip offers you beautiful panoramic views of the Ganesh Himal region, the Langtang region, and the Annapurna region. This area has beautiful landscapes, rich flora, and dense forests with Spanish oak, blue pine, and rhododendrons in the spring. Ganesh is the Hindu god of good fortune. An elephant-headed god Ganesh, we pray in Nepal as a divine power. Named after the same god Ganesh, this mountain is the holy mountain of the Hindus.
As you walk along the trail, you will experience diverse alpine flora, as well as gain insight into the daily life, unique culture, and traditions of the Tamang people. Ganesh Himal trek is a walk-in less travailed trail between green hills and forests in the background of beautiful Himalayan ranges.

encounter with many animals
In this area, there are 526 species of plants, 300 species of birds, and various animals like Himalayan Thar, Gaur, musk deer, monkey, etc. Rich in orchids this area has about 40 different species of orchids. The forest of rhododendrons, lakes, and waterfalls along your route makes your journey more interesting, lively, and vibrant.
Pass the Singa-La Pass and enjoy the beauty of the black and white lake, as well as be enchanted by the stunning Ganga and Jamuna waterfall. The surface of the black lake is covered with black stone and the white lake is covered with white stone. This is another attraction center of the trek. The goal of this Ganesh Himal Trek is to help you walk the off-beaten trail and explore rural Nepal. During the Ganesh Himal Trek, you will experience the mixed Nepalese culture and traditions of both Buddhists and Hindus.
We can experience the Tamang culture as many Tamang people live in the area. Tamang people are still away from modern life and practice the daily activities that their ancestors practiced. The green pastured mountains look stunning and in the morning at the Pangsang Pass, you will experience the fascination of the entire Ganesh Himal Trek.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
