Tour Overview

Ganesh Himal Trek in the Himalayas is one of the most superb treks between the Manaslu range and Budhi Gandaki Valley. The valley takes its name from the Hindu God of wealth, Ganesh. This trek is best for people researching flowers and want to be at one with nature. The 16-day trek begins from the Betrawati Bazaar but the real pleasure starts just after the Singla pass that leads to the Jaisal Kund Lake. On the way to the stunning village of Jyamrung, we will encounter the rhododendron forest where we can explore the flora and fauna of the region. Along the way, we will see the spectacular views of the Tibetan mountains, the Langtang region and many more. The paddy fields will provide a stunning green background to our trek along the way including 526 species of floras and 300 species of fauna!
