Ganesh Himal Trekking

Ganesh Himal Trekking is as adventurous as trekking in any other Himalaya regions of the country. The area is situated in the central eastern region of the country. This ideal trekking route offers outstanding views of snow-capped mountain peaks and also lets you engage in the lifestyles of the neighborly friendly  local inhabitants and gain knowledge about their rich cultures and traditions. The name of the mountain peak is derived from the name of the legendary Hindu deity ‘Lord Ganesha’. This beautiful Himalaya region can be faintly seen from the Kathmandu Valley itself. The region is together formed up by snow-capped mountain peaks such as Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III and Ganesh IV.

The residential valleys in the northern part of Ganesh Himal Region is filled with wilderness and is untouched by most of the trekkers. Our Ganesh Himal Trek starts from Trishuli following the upper valley and ultimately to the destination. Walking through the banks of pristine river and exploring around the remote residence of the local inhabitants there add a different charm to your trek. These people form a strong community and live in flat roof-topped houses. You are likelier to get inspired by their rich cultures and traditions that will make you intolerable to get into their lives and fill up your curiosity by interacting with them.

The major Himalaya ranges that you can gain views of from the Ganesh Himal region are Langtang Range, Boudha Himal, Hiunchuli and the tributaries of Ganesh Himal region itself. Also, you get to pass through two of the high passes Shing La Pass and Pangsang La Pass with altitudes of 4,200 meters and 4,100 meters respectively.

Case of flight delay

Flight by plane and helicopter are might be cancellations or delay cause of bad weather in remote areas. Some other times, operational complication may occur which is more possible to happen in Everest Region- Kathmandu – Lukla – Kathmandu flight, Annapurna region- Pokhara – Jomsom – Pokhara flight, Dolpa, Simikot , Jumla region etc. As these flights have some problem with fixed schedule, it is also suggested to carry extra money for food and accommodations. Trekking in the remote areas, especially during unusual season, you’re advised to keep extra days to prepare with some delays and avoid frustrating result. In case of delay in flight previous to trek departure or at the end of the trek, you need to manage your accommodation and food costs by yourself.

Electricity Crisis Problem in Nepal

It is difficult to told you that Nepal has an electricity problem because Nepal is 2nd richest country in water resource but it is true Nepal still facing the problem. It means there is electricity off for some hours in day and night time. Most of the hotels in Kathmandu, Pokhara and other cities are possible to have no battery backup. In that case Air condition may not work and, sometimes, TV and other electric utensils may not run. Some hotels have possible to run the TV and AC as well. But, only few of them are lies in this standard category.

So, be organized for this while you are traveling in Nepal.  For that situation, we suggested you to bring the flashlight with extra batteries.

Can I buy/rent equipment in Kathmandu

Yes, you can do that but it is not actually required to spend large amount of your money to buy extra equipment and clothing earlier to your trip because most of the trekking equipment can be hired from Trekking shops within Kathmandu. Most of the gear is locally contrived. Some Chinese equipment are possible to be more expensive but qualitative. You can take Sleeping bag and down jacket easily on rent.

Ghorepani Poonhill Trekking-Aug-2015

I would say this for sure is one of the most beautiful experience I've ever had. Bishnu is such a nice, sweet and well organized person. As a solo female traveler, it's quite a bit nasty to made such decision to trek during the raining season especially after massive earthquake. Luckily I stayed at a nice and decent hotel where I almost could made myself at home, and the building, the places and all the stuff I worried about really didn't effected by the earthquake. Thanks again Bishnu for all of your effort, and hopefully I could go ABC next year or 2017. I'll see you then!

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking - Dec-2014

Annapurna Base Camp Trekking

From 20th of December 2014 to 5th of January 2015 we went spent some gorgeous weeks trekking in the Annapurna region. First, we hiked to Poon Hill which rewarded us with a very nice sunrise. Then, we continued our trekking to the Annapurna Base Camp (ABC). Both at the ABC and on the way to and from it, we were blessed with amazing sunsets and sunrises. We even saw monkeys and eagles. Views were spectacular and the weather was great.

The organization of the trek was immaculate. All transfers (Kathmandu airport – Hotel – Pokhara– Kathmandu Hotel – airport) were perfectly organized. In addition, both the guide and porter did a great job. They were very flexible and always agreed when we wanted to change the program. This allowed us to reach the ABC two days earlier than planned and gave us more time to visit additional places when going down. We also paid a visit to hot springs which was very nice. In sum, we recommend Gold Mountain Nepal Treks & Expedition as a reliable trekking agency which is very eager to comply with the customers’ wishes.

Best regards,

Werner and Heidi

Everest Base Camp Trek - Oct-2014

I trekked with Gold Mountain Nepal Treks to Everest Base Camp in October-2014. It was my first alone abroad trip but Gold Mountain Nepal Treks made it so easy to me by providing airport pick-up/drove and hotel accommodation as well. The trek was so fantastic along with all the staff of this company. Guides to porters, everyone was so helpful and friendly.

Definitely it would be one of the best experiences of my lifetime and I recommend Gold Mountain Nepal Treks to those who are looking for trekking in Nepal.

Thank you.
