Ganesh Himal Singla Pass Trek Overview
Ganesh Himal is situated in Central Nepal to the northwest of Kathmandu. This is one of the lesser trodden areas where the trekkers are yet to create much of their footprints. The region is predominantly inhabited by the people of the Tamang community but also has a mixture of other ethnic groups.
Singla Pass is located at an altitude of 4200 meters above sea level. It gives an extraordinary panoramic view of the Himalayan snowcapped peaks. There are three groups of peaks between Kathmandu and Pokhara namely, Ganesh Himal, Langtang, and the Manaslu, also including the Annapurna Range.
Ganesh Himal Singla Pass Trek is for those people who would like to make a different experience rather than taking the more popular ones. The magnificent natural beauty, the quaint mountaintop villages and the welcoming hospitality of the Highlanders are the obvious reasons to trek this region.
In addition, this region is rich in various flora and fauna species. The best season to visit this region is between September to November and also February to June. In fact, the low elevation of this area makes it an all-season trek. The trail starts from Kathmandu and continues till Balche. Balche is a small town located on the borders of the Nuwakot District in the south and Rasuwa District in the north. Balche is a fairly large bazaar town about 30 km north of Trishuli.
