The 7 Days Ganesh Himal Trek brings us closer to the picturesque Tamang Village and the emerald hills. The terraces of the fields are filled with the deep gorges of glaciers, blue pine forests, golden mustard and rice, natural hot water streams, and the blossoming of the forests of the rhododendron that supplements the beauty of the path. Ganesh Himal stands between the Budi Gandaki valley in the west and the Manaslu Himalayan range where the beauty can be seen across the Kathmandu valley (the capital city of Nepal). The hike begins with the long drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi where we then start out hiking to the amazing Gatlang. The time from Kathmandu to the Syabrubesi takes about eight hours. Out from the Gatlang, we arrive at the Ganesh Base Camp where we discover more of the valley and spend about two nights there. This is a whole-time life opportunity, a chance to discover within a brief trek. The Ganesh Himal Trek Best Season is the August to December and the February to the May.
