Ganesh Himal Trek
Elephant-headed God “Ganesh” of Good Fortune
Ganesh Himal Trek is one of the best trekking trails in the Ganesh Himal Region. Ganesh Himal trails are gaining momentum in terms of popularity. From grassy meadows to the high altitude pass and from lowland Nepalese civilization to the Himalayan people’s lifestyle and the Himalayan ranges’ enchanting views, this trekking is the most mystical and vibrant in Nepal in comparison to other popular trekking trails of Nepal.
Ganesh Himal Trek starts with the bus drive from Kathmandu to Somdang, the small Tamang village. The place is famous in Nepal as the mine of zinc these days. Ganesh Himal Trek is very happening because of the hydropower project being installed in the region. From Somdang, the Ganesh Himal trek follows towards the Pangsang Pass. The pass is visually attractive because of the green pastured hilltop adjacent to the Himalayan range. The trail then moves towards Ganesh Himal Base Camp.
This unique and virgin Himalaya is equally aesthetic as its name is related to the sacred god of Hinduism, Lord Ganesha. People believe that the shape of the Ganesh Himal resembles that of the head of the Lord himself. Once you have savored the delights of this magnificent mountain, you will descend toward Rajgang Kharka. In 4 days, you will be in the small yet consuming town on the banks of the Budi Gandaki river. The River lies on the border of Dhading and the Gorkha district of Nepal. These villages offer enigmatic and varied experiences. The Chhetri, Brahmin, Gurung, and other ethnic people will encounter them on the way.
The Tented accommodation or the accommodation shared with the locals helps to enhance the small group adventure tour in the Ganesh Himal Trek. From Aarughat, you will be taken to Kathmandu, passing by Dhading Besi via a rural postal road. The road trip from Aarughat to Dhading Besi is equally captivating because of the stylistic serpent road. You will cross paddy fields, rivers, and forests uphill and downhill.

I did this Ganesh Himal Trek with Peregrine Treks in mid-September of 2021. I loved the blend of lots of views of big, snowy mountains with trekking through interesting and remote villages. The people are genuinely delighted (and amazed) that you have made the effort to visit their villages and give you a very warm welcome. On the trek, our guide Mingmar and our porters took care of every aspect ensuring a truly authentic visit to this little-known area.
I highly recommend Peregrine Treks if you are traveling to Nepal for trekking.
This was my first experience trekking, and choosing Peregrine Treks was a great decision, and it blew me away! Our guides were friendly, knew everything about the trekking region very well, and were loads of fun. I would recommend Peregrine Treks for any trekking in Nepal you’re considering doing, as they made my experience a huge success!
The best experience we had with Peregrine was the whole tour of the Annapurna Base Camp Trek was tailor-made for our requirements; all our requests were reviewed, discussed, and accepted and, in some instances, with a better recommendation.Read More
