Join me for this 19-day ascent program to Paldor Peak (5,896 m), one of the popular summits in the Ganesh Himal range. This is an intense but accessible program, as well as very rewarding experience. Get ready to experience Nepal, out of the beaten tracks.

As a local guide, what I enjoy the most is sharing my culture and the history of my country with my guests. This is what brings me the most joy about being a Nepali IFMGA certified mountain guide.

To begin this program, we will need to drive from Kathmandu to Sabru Bensi, in the Trisuli valley. This takes between 6 and 8 hours. Once there, we begin the trekking itinerary to Sabrubesi across the Langtang Khola.

The main route across the glacier is crevassed. On reaching the col there are two options either climb the straightforward ridge using ropes, or continue around to the crevassed back for easier 45 degree inclined ridge.

The Paldor Peak summit is easy to reach, if weather conditions are good. Once up in the peak, the views are exceptional. You will be able to enjoy the rich landscape, featuring the Ganesh Himal peaks, Langtang Lirung (7,227 m) and Manaslu (8,156 m) ,as well as some mountains of Tibet, like Shishapangma (8,013 m).

On our way, we will trek across ancient traditional villages like After Tangjet and Gatlang, with a rich Tamang culture.

Note that the price for the tour is a full-board package and includes: NMA climbing permits, all the logistics from your arrival to your departure from Kathmandu.

Have a look at the detailed itinerary below for more details. Note that this itinerary can vary. I can adapt it to your wished and time availability.
