Paldor Peak climb in Nepal. Ganesh Himal trek and Paldor Peak expedtion.
Ganesh Himal North-West of Kathamndu.
lies at the south-east end of Ganesh Himal marking
the junction of the Tiru and Karpu Dandas at
the head of the Mailung Khola, a tributary of
the Trisuli Gandaki river.
The name Ganesh is taken from the elephant-headed
Hindu god of good luck, probably the most popular
deity in the Kathamndu valley. On a clear day
the Ganesh Himal, with the icy
of Pabil (7,101m/23,300ft), Logsang Karpo (7,150m/23,458ft),
Ganesh I (7,406m/24,298ft) and Ganesh V (6,950m/22,802ft)
can be seen forming an imposing backdorp to
the north-west of Kathamndu.
quickest approach to Paldor and Ganesh Himal
is from Sabru near Dunche in the Trisuli valley
which can be reached in a 6 to 7 hours drive
from Kathmandu. From here the trail crosses
the Langtang Khola to Sabrubesi. After crossing
the Bhote Kosi river the route leads via Tamang
villages of Tangjet and Gatlang, then heads
northwards along the ridge before dropping
into the forest above Mailung Khola to pick
up the newly built road that leads to an army
post. The moraine filled valley below Paldor
is reached from here in another days walk.
A more interesting approach is the trek from
Sundarijal (on the outskirts of Kathmandu
valley) through the hills of Helambu and over
the Gosainkunda range to Sabru. The return
from the mountain can be made by trekking
directly to Trisuli Bazaar in about 4 or 5
days from where a drive of about 3 hours bring
one back to Kathmandu.
