Ganesh Himal Charity Trekking - 14 Days

Trip Overview of Ganesh Himal Charity trek – trekking in nepal for good cause

Join us this fantastic camping trek to the north of Kathmandu called Ganesh Himal – named after Elephant headed God of fourtune. Lower Ganesh Himal trekking is a cultural trek par excellence, without a doubt one of the best treks in Nepal to see real Nepal. Oddly, it’s also one of the Nepal Himalaya’s least known treks – non touristic.

A trek around the Ganesh Himal is a step back in time, a glimpse of pristine Nepali villages, a walk through a remote Himalayan Panorama. The diversity of the trek, from the Hindu middle hills to the Tamang dwellers and the awesome mountain scenery of the Ganesh, Manaslu Himal and surrounding peaks combine to make this trek one of the most interesting, as well as one of the most beautiful treks in Nepal. The 4400 meters Sing La is just one of the high points! This is a classic camping adventure of a life time as you will be supporting the Charity.

This Ganesh Himal charity trek itinerary combines adventure and kindness we call it fun plus resposibilities, providing you with lasting memories of the Remote Himalayas while allowing you to contribute to a remote community within Nepal. We believe in creating awareness in areas that Media coverage doesn’t, for us, every individual counts!
