Ganesh Himal Base Camp Trek

The Ganesh Himal is named after the elephant-headed God of Good Fortune. The Ganesh Himal can clearly be seen from Kathmandu Valley. The Ganesh Range Peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, Ganesh IV) stand out like crystal, that is the "Great Himalayan Chain" forming the skyline. This great Himalayan massif is contained between the valley of the Buri Gandaki in the west and Bhote Koshi in the east, which becomes Trishuli Khola in the lower section.

Trekking in Ganesh Himal region is enriched with its rich Flora with impressive display of berberis, primulas, orchids and a variety of ferns.  The valleys set ablaze by yellow blossoms of double Jasmine, the forest dense with Spanish oak, blue pine, and in spring time blossoming of the rhododendron set whole forest alight in spectacular arrays of color. Another feature includes the abundance of crystals which is regarded valuable and precious stone.  The trekking route passes through quite Tamang villages, hot spas, gorges and glaciers and magnificent sceneries.
