Ganesh Himal, located in central Nepal, is a less popular tourist destination. It is located northwest of Kathmandu and is distinguished by terraced hillsides that seem to climb to the sky. However, many interesting ethnic groups and a mixed lifestyle provide an insight into real Nepali life. Thus, this provides visitors with the opportunity to observe the rich Nepalese cultural tradition up close and interact with locals.
Meanwhile, the area provides excellent habitat for a diverse range of plants and animals. Therefore, there are 526 plant species (including 40 orchid species) and 300 bird species. As well as, there are other fascinating wild animals including the Himalayan Thar, Gaur, various monkeys, and Musk Deer.
During the trek, there are some interesting panoramic viewpoints. Like; Singala pass, Pangsang Bhanjyang, Jaisal Kunda, and Jyamrung are a few examples. As a result, these locations provide views of more than 40 mountains rising above 6000m (19’680ft.). Firstly, our trek begins in Betrawati, after a nearly 5-hour drive from Kathmandu. Then we travel through picturesque villages and unspoiled countryside. And we arrive in Singalala, where the mountain views are spectacular. From here, we descend through picturesque villages to Arughat, where we board a bus to Kathmandu. Trekkers walk at their own pace, carrying only a daypack. The average hiking time per day will be 6-7 hours.
