Singla Pass Camping Trek: Exploring the Hidden Gem of Ganesh Himal

The Singla Pass Trek, nestled deep within the breathtaking Ganesh Himal region, is an adventure like no other. Standing tall at 4045 meters, this trek takes you beyond the well-trodden paths of Pangsang la Pass and opens up a world of extraordinary Himalayan vistas, including Ganesh Himal, Manaslu, and the Langtang range. This remote gem offers an intimate glimpse into the pristine beauty of nature and the rich culture of the region’s indigenous communities.

The journey into the heart of Singla Pass Trek begins with a 6-hour drive from Kathmandu to Bhalche village, where your trekking adventure will truly take off. This trek boasts an array of captivating highlights, from an immersive eco-nature hike through rhododendron jungles to the upper reaches of Bhalche Thulogaun-Dhongang, the rugged expanse of Gumbo Danda, and the serene beauty of Rupchet Kharka, a local cattle farm that comes to life during the monsoon season, providing sustenance to both Bhalche and Sertung villages.

At the pinnacle of Singla Pass, you’ll find a magnificent and towering mani, a sacred site that draws Hindu pilgrims from near and far. The full moon day of September, known as Janai Purnima, sees an influx of pilgrims from Sertung, Tipling villages in Dhading, as well as Bhalche, Deurali, and Meghang in Nuwakot, all seeking spiritual solace in this majestic location.

The Singla Pass Trek offers a unique experience, catering to those trekkers who yearn for a quieter, less frequented journey amidst the tranquility of nature. Instead of the bustling tea houses, this trek is a camping expedition that immerses you in the heart of the Ganesh Himal region’s rugged beauty. Beyond Sertung village, there’s a relatively new Homestay trek known as the Ruby Valley Trek, meticulously surveyed and endorsed by the Trekking Agency Associations of Nepal (TAAN).

The Ganesh Himal region, through which Singla Pass meanders, is a treasure trove of diverse wildlife, flora, and fauna. The best times to embark on the Singla Pass Trek are from September to November and again from February to June when the weather is at its most pleasant, and the landscape is adorned in vibrant hues.

Accommodations

Unlike many popular trekking routes, Singla Pass Trek does not feature tea houses or homestays. It is a camping trek that leads you off the beaten path into the remote heart of the Ganesh Himal region. Here, you’ll find sprawling cow and yak pastures and a pristine alpine highland climate. If your schedule allows for more than seven days, you can even extend your adventure to visit Ganesh Himal base camp, the rejuvenating Hot Springs, and the charming Hendung Village.

Completing the Singla Pass Trek within a 7-day timeframe is entirely feasible. The typical itinerary includes starting from Kathmandu, passing through Bhalche, Gonaga, Rupchet, and Sertung villages via Singla Pass, and finally returning to Kathmandu. The Nepal Wilderness Trekking team leads the Singla Pass Camping Trek, comprising experienced guides and porters hailing from the very villages you’ll explore. Their intimate knowledge of the region and its unique challenges ensures a safe and unforgettable journey.
