Ganesh Himal trekking promises you a diverse range of vegetation, topography, forests, hills, spectacular meadows and the vibrancy of the Tamang culture.
Located in the Central Eastern region of Nepal, Ganesh Himal is also a home to 526 species of plants which includes 40 species of orchids, 300 species of birds and many animals such as musk deer, monkeys, Himalayan Thar, Gaur etc.
The name ‘Ganesh’ is from Hindu elephant-headed God Ganesha. One of the peaks in the mountain range depicts the shape of a Hindu Lord Ganesha’s trunk, hence the name.
Ganesh Himal trek is one of the treks of Nepal which is least explored. But offers a range of peaks i.e. Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, Ganesh IV; Mount Manaslu; Tibet range; Langtang and Annapurna range. All these ranges of the Himalayas form a ‘Great Himalayan Chain’ in the skyline.
