Located in Central Nepal, the area around Ganesh Himal and Manaslu can be reached by road in a day from Kathmandu. It offers a variety of challenging off-the-beaten-path routes, with views of Mt. Manaslu (8163m), Peak 29 (7871m), Himal Chuli (7893m), and the Ganesh Himal and Langtang Himal ranges.
Still largely untouched by modernization, you can enjoy authentic Nepali culture and hospitality in the villages and magnificent views of high Himalayan peaks on the trails. Several trekking trails are accessible close to the Tibetan border. In lower altitudes you find untouched rhododendron forests and quaint Tamang villages.
Though teahouses are now established along some routes in this region, travellers have discovered this jewel of a trekking destination. We recommend going here with Mountain Travel Nepal’s luxury camping outfit for the ultimate comfort on trek. Let our staff spoil you with the best on-trek service in Nepal, while guiding you safely and comfortably through the Himalayan foothills.
