Trekking Destinations >Langtang > Ganesh Himal Trek
The Langtang Himalayas are within easy reach of Kathmandu. But they rival any alpine area on the planet for staggering natural beauty. The Langtang region remains one of Nepal's hidden treasures with far less tourist traffic than the Everest or Annapurna regions.
Although not as popular as Annapurna and Everest areas, many trekkers recommend the Ganesh Himal route. It is famous for Tamang Culture, and spectacular mountain views and rhododendron forest. The Ganesh Himal range consists of several peaks over 7000m in elevation with uninhabited foothills running down to the south and west. You will also vist the town of Gorkha, home of King Prithvi Narayan Shah. No specific permit is needed to trek in Ganesh Himal area.
