Join us in this unlikely camping trek to the north of Kathmandu towards Ganesh Himal which is named after the Elephant-headed God of fortune.
Lower Ganesh Himal trek is a cultural trek par excellence which is without a doubt one of the best treks in Nepal. Oddly, it is also among one of Nepal’s Himalaya’s least known treks and it is a moderate tourist’s destination.
A trek around Ganesh Himal is a step back in time where you will get a glimpse of the pristine Nepali villages and walk through remote Himalayan Panoramas. The diversity of the trek from the Hindu middle hills to the Tamang dwellers and the awesome mountain scenery of Ganesh, Manaslu Himal, and surrounding peaks combine to make this trek one of the most interesting, as well as one of the most beautiful treks in Nepal.
The 4400 meters Sing La is one of the high points and this is a classic camping adventure of a lifetime as you will also be supporting the Charity initiative.
This Ganesh Himal charity trek itinerary combines adventure and kindness as we like to believe it because it is filled with anticipation and tasks, providing you with lasting memories of the Remote Himalayas while allowing you to contribute to a remote community within Nepal. We believe in creating awareness in these areas and this is a way for us to do so!
From your participation in this trek a sum of US$100 per person is donated to the HANDS in Nepal Foundation, a non-profit foundation whose main objective is to Educate children, establish and implement long-lasting sustainable education systems within the community development that impact isolated areas of Darkha, Kimtang, Jharlang villages (eight villages and over 12,000 poor people ) which are located in the Northern part of Dhanding district of Nepal.
The money donated will go towards building schools, hiring teachers, establishing libraries and building toilets.
Our carefully designed Ganesh Himal Charity Trek itinerary will allow you to visit all the above-mentioned villages and will let you participate in the projects which are currently supported by HANDS in Nepal and Earthbound Expeditions.
A trek to this unique unmatched environment where relatively few trekkers visit this area yearly will make your experience more unique and unspoiled. You will be greatly rewarded and feel a great sense of compassion as you trek into these remote villages to experience the everyday life of these people, visit the schools, meet with locals and see just how isolated these areas are.
We believe that through our management these children will learn to be confident about what they can achieve.
