Ganesh Himal Trek Overview
Ganesh himal trekking Nepal in the Ganesh Himal region located in central Nepal, towards the north-west of Kathmandu has only been opened to outsiders since very recently. The trail passes through the terraced hillsides touching the skyline. The region inhabited by several ethnic groups, boasts mixed culture and lifestyle providing a real experience of Nepalese traditional culture.
While on the way, the Ganesh Himal trekking passes through ‘Gorkha’ a historical place set on a hill overlooking the snowy Himalayan peaks. Gorkha is equally known for temples of ‘Gorakhnath’ and ‘Gorakh Kali’ visited by thousands of pilgrims each year.
Moreover, the Ganesh Himal Trekking trail passes through some really fascinating spots such as Singla Pass (4045m), Khurpudanda Pass (3710m), Pangsang Bhanjyang, Jaisal Kunda and Jyamrung. These spots offer panoramic views of more than 40 snowy peaks over 6000m.

We have travelled many places around the world and prefer to use local companies. After some Internet searching I came across Skyline treks. They put together a great itinerary for us. We travelled for 5 weeks in Nepal including treking to Annapurna base camp, rafting the Seti river, Chitwan National Park, and most of the local attractions around Kathmandu, Pokhara, and everywhere in between. We had a fantastic experience.
We have travelled as a private group with local companies and with international travel companies before. I have to say I much prefer local companies and Skyline treks in no exception. What you gain by traveling with local groups is getting to know people including your guides, drivers, and many people along the way. There is a much greater interaction with local people that will enrich your trip. Having the same driver and guides, porters etc over many weeks allows good friendships to be formed and for a much more personal trip. Raj, the owner of the company took great care of us. When the going got tough on the abc trek with ice and snow, there was always a helping hand. We always had hot drinks shortly after arriving at the tea houses. Go and have a great adventure in Nepal with skyline treks if you haven't been or try them if you are returning. We would love to return in the future to see more of this charming country and friendly people.
