Ganesh Himal Manaslu trekking:

Ganesh Himal Manaslu trekking introduce you to a broad spectrum of life in different Nepalese communities and beautiful scenery. Base Camp of Ganesh Himal where there are two lakes – Black and White. Twin waterfalls – Ganga and Jamuna, bring joy to your heart. Visit this area in March or April, and you see the mountainsides red with magnificent Rhododendron blooms. Trail is pass through  Gorkha, the birthplace of modern Nepal home of King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who fought many wars to unite the tiny kingdoms spread throughout the land now known as Nepal. This area is also the homeland of the original Gurkha warriors.

Ganesh himal Manaslu trekking offers an extraordinary panorama of the Ganesh Himal Massif, Manaslu, and the Langtang Range. Highlights of this journey include not only the mountain views but abundant flora and fauna, magnificent village scenery and the welcoming people of the mid-hills with their captivating customs and traditions. The best season to visit is September to November as well as February through June, and even outside of these times the spectacular attractions and relatively low elevation make it an all-season adventure.

Another attraction of Ganesh Himal Manaslu trekking is  Tsum Valley is a sacred Himalayan pilgrimage valley situated in a trans-Himalayan region of Gorkha. This Valley’s natural beauty and its pristine culture make this trekking unique. Tsum comes from the Tibetan word ‘Tsombo’, against the majestic backdrop of the Ganesh Himal, Shringi Himal and Baudha Himal ranges; this serene Himalayan valley is rich in ancient art, culture, and religion. And lined with mani walls made of thousands of stone slabs carved with deities and prayers. The Tsum valley has a long history of Buddhism. Traditionally Tsum valley was a culturally distinct geographical area called ‘Tsum Tso Chuksum.

This trek leads you to around the Manalsu through the Budi Gandaki Valley River, over Larkya La pass, and descend to the Marsyangdi River, you will trek down to Besisahar. Trek end at Besisahar than drive to Kathmandu.

 

Trip Guide:

The big mountain scenery of Manaslu and Ganesh is astonishing. There’s the two-horned massif of Manaslu (8156m), the circumnavigation of which is a meditation on the wonders of Himalayan geology. There’s Ganesh Himal (7406m), named for the serpentine southern ridge that evokes the elephant-headed Hindu god of good fortune. And then there’s Himalchuli (7893m), which rises an incredible 7000m from the Marsyangdi River. Nestled in between these Himalayan giants are villages that draw from Hindu and Buddhist influences. Add a sprinkling of butterflies amidst forests from sal to pine, and you’ll be convinced you’ll catch a sight of the shy red panda. The Manaslu and Ganesh region is poised between past and future – the villages still unfrequented, but already welcoming visitors – now is the time to go for a taste of the unbeaten trail in the next trekker’s Mecca.

Manaslu and Ganesh have long been overshadowed by the established trekking regions to either side. But both the ‘spirit mountain’ and the ‘elephant mountain’ are so spectacular, and so easily accessible by bus, it’s a mystery why it’s taken so long for guides and trekkers to discover them. Manaslu lies north of the historic fortress town of Gorkha, from where the last kings of Nepal ventured forth to conquer the rest of the country in the 18th Century. The Manaslu Circuit has recently become a teahouse trek, opening up the misty wood-shingled villages of the Nupri Valley. But hikers are free to explore the many other trails being forged right now. The Tsum Valley trek has beautiful views of the four 7000m peaks of the Ganesh massif, and visitors can experience the distinct Tibetan-influenced culture of the Tsumba people, who prohibit the slaughter of all living beings.No doubt this enhances the protection afforded to such endangered species as the Snow Leopard and the Red Panda.

You can also enjoy a culturally enchanting homestay with the Tamangs, the original horse traders of Nepal. The adventurous can venture higher for a ‘walk in the clouds’ above Tiru Danda, from where gorgeous views stretch from the Annapurnas to Ganesh Himal. With a variety to rival the Annapurna region, it’s no exaggeration to say Manaslu time has come. Forget the jams of the more established routes. Barring the busy teahouses, you’ll have the trails here mostly to yourself – if you don’t mind sharing it with blue sheep, langurs, yaks and the myriad butterflies weaving in and out of the thundering waterfalls
