By booking this trek all you hereby agree that:

1. You will have a valid insurance covering cancellations, accidents, health, emergency evacuation and loss/theft/damage of their baggage and personal effects.

Mount Ganesh is more popularly known as "Ganesh Himal" (Himal = Mountain, in Nepali). The Ganesh Himal Adventure is a moderately strenuous trek which compares less to a full-featured luxury trip and more to a hardcore exploration demanding a good deal of stamina and patience.

That may be the reason why the Ganesh Himal region is explored less by whimsical trekkers. But if taking home some lasting memories and down-to-earth experiences from Nepal is your real purpose and you are ready to say goodbye to luxuries for over 2 weeks, this happens to be the best package available.

The trekking starts from Betrawati (800m), goes as high as 4750m at Singa La Pass and trails back to Kathmandu via Khahare (900m). Except for a few nights in tents, you will be resting in the houses owned by the locals.

In some very remote areas you will even eat their regular food, garnished with nothing else than their genuine hospitality. The way they accept and treat guests is exceptional and it will not take that long for you to interact with them, having learnt a few common words. You will also enjoy observing the distinct traditions and cultures of many ethnic groups, especially of the Gurungs.

    Like to be active, even very active, but not pushed too far. This is the one for you.
