Ganesh Himal (7400 meters), located north-northwest of Kathmandu, is easily visible on a clear day from the city. In Nepal there a saying that the place where the lamp stands will always dark. The Ganesh Himal is similar in that it is near to Kathmandu but still rarely visited by tourists despite the relatively easy trekking and pristine forests and villages of the region.
Twelve days trekking affords incredible nearly ‘touchable” views of Ganesh I (7401m), II (7150m), and Manaslu (8163m). The walk is mostly through typical Nepalese villages and forests and jungles of oak, rhododendron, bamboo, pine and others. The single mountain pass (4500m) is the highest point of the trek, but we are well acclimatized to the altitude before we attempt it. The best season for the trek is late Sept., Oct., Nov., and March-April through May. Late March through April offers the incredible opportunity to see the forests burst into color as the six to seven rhododendron species bloom.
