Situated in the central-eastern part of Nepal, the Ganesh Himal range offers an awe-inspiring landscape, rich cultural experiences, and a chance to witness the majestic grandeur of the Himalayas.

Stretching across the Rasuwa and Dhading districts of Nepal, the Ganesh Himal region is named after the Hindu deity Lord Ganesh, the elephant-headed god of wisdom and prosperity.

The Ganesh Himal Trek begins from Syabrubesi, a small village located on the banks of the Bhote Koshi River. As you embark on this adventure, you are immediately greeted by picturesque landscapes, lush green forests, cascading waterfalls, and terraced fields that add a touch of serenity to the journey. The trail gradually ascends, offering breathtaking views of the Ganesh Himal range, with peaks reaching over 7,000 meters in height.

The region is a paradise for nature lovers and birdwatchers, with numerous species of birds and wildlife to be spotted along the way. If you’re fortunate, you might even catch a glimpse of the elusive red panda, a rare and endangered species found in the area.

As you trek deeper into the Ganesh Himal region, you’ll come across pristine alpine lakes, including the mesmerizing Ruby Valley and the sacred Gosaikunda Lake. These shimmering bodies of water are surrounded by snow-capped peaks, creating a surreal atmosphere that will leave you in awe of nature’s wonders.
