Veteran climbers who embark on many adventures in the snowy and rocky mountains of Nepal would at least have heard of the Paldor Peak Climb of Ganesh Himal. Paldor Peak is located in the northwestern region of Kathmandu. 

There are two options to reach the summit. One is from Syabru- a trail for beginners. It is only a seven-hour drive from Kathmandu. Syabrubesi is also reached by crossing Langtang Khola. Now you must cross the villages of Tamang, mainly Gatlang and Tangjet to reach a ridge to the north that would take you to the dense forest along Mailing Khola. It takes a couple of days to reach the peak.

The second is from Sundarjilal- for those people who are fond of doing the trek. You can traverse Helambu and the Gosaikunda mountain range to get to Syabru (If time and condition are favorable) You can have the opportunity to explore peaks like- Annapurna, Shisapangma, and Manaslu Mountain ranges. This destination, being unique in itself, is rarely visited. 

Paldor Peak (5896m) is a real destination for all trekkers and adventurers. The natural and cultural beauty of the trail will make you speechless. So, why wait any longer? Pack your bags and get ready for an exciting adventure.
