Number of Travellers


Ganesh Himal base camp trek is located in central Nepal, in Ruby Valley between Langtang National Park and the Manaslu Conservation Area, about a day’s drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. The area is blessed with geographical, cultural, and biological diversity. In addition to the hundreds of species of medicinal herbs, colourful wildflowers, and more than 200 species of birds, it is a mining area for rubies and crystals. Generally less travelled than other areas of Nepal.

Ganesh Himal base camp trek crosses through four districts of Nepal. The route crosses Gorkha, the birthplace of Prithivi Narayan Shah who made modern Nepal. Prithivi Narayan Shah (1723 – 1775) ruled from here and fought many wars to unite the country. It is also the homeland of the original Gurkhas. Ganesh Himal region is the homeland of more Nepal indigenous groups, mainly Tamang, Gurung, and Ghale in the north and Brahmin, Chhetri, Dalit, Newar, and Chepang in the low elevation south.

The Ganesh Himal base camp trek is one of the lesser-explored treks in Nepal’s Himalayas, named after the Hindu god of good fortune. Ganesh was the younger son of Lord Shiva whose head was cut off by his own father, unaware that he was his own son. Eventually, the head was replaced by an elephant’s head, and Ganesh was worshipped as a God.

We will be surrounded by exotic flora and fauna while on Ganesh Himal, including barberries, premolars, orchids, and ferns of many kinds, providing us with a wonderful smell as we enjoy the spectacular views. This is also an opportunity for us to experience the Tamang culture since this region is home to many Tamang people who still live away from the city and still practice their daily activities as their ancestors did. Ganesh Himal is a paradise for explorers, full of high mountains, terraced fields, deep gorges, hot springs, and Rhododendron forests.

The Ganesh Himal 13 days trek takes in two passes, Pangsang La pass and Sing la passes as well as the Thulo Dhunga before the Base Camp. Waterfalls, rhododendron and juniper forests, and lush vegetation can be seen.
The spectacular Ganesh Himal is visible from the nearby Dobra Danda, as well as the small lakes of Kalo Kunda and Seto Kunda. Rubies are mined in the area around these lakes. Lakes are said to possess mystical powers – they can either bless or punish visitors.

During September, shamans gather in large numbers at Ganesh Kunda, the third holy lake. Views from the passes include Langtang, Ganesh Himal, and Manaslu ranges. This combines mountain views with passing through culturally different villages and perhaps being entertained by people from friendly villages with traditional music.
There are musk deer, Jharal goats, wild boars, Langur monkeys, pheasants, and partridges in this area. There is also the strange aphrodisiac caterpillar-fungus, Yarsha gumba, harvested in the nearby highlands.

The 13 days Ganesh Himal base camp trek consists of camping, and there is also a homestay trek called Ruby Valley Trek, but it is not facilitated like other major trekking routes such as Everest Base Camp and Annapurna base camp trekking routes. Basic lodging and homestay facilities are provided. It is comparatively cheap so it can be enjoyed by most wilderness lovers on a budget. if you are seeking comfortable camping accommodation and a variety of food options. then Nepal Wilderness Trekking agency can arrange a fully supported camping trek on your request with our expert teams.
