Additional Information

Ganesh Himal trek best time

Like any other trekking route in Nepal, the best time to do the Ganesh Himal trek is in spring and autumn. Because theGanesh Himal region is situated in the rain shadow area, you can do this trek during monsoon season too. You may face rainfall at the start of the journey, but there is no rainfall above tree line. 

Trekking in spring (March to early May) lets you see rhododendrons and junipers blooming all over the place. The fragrance of teeming vegetation and the warm weather is fantastic. The days slowly begin to get longer, and the temperature ranges between 15°C to 23°C. 

Trekking in autumn (October to November) lets you be part of the biggest festival in Nepal. There is festivity in the air, and the cities are well-decorated with bazillions of lights. The weather is stable and mild, like in spring. The mountain views are crystal clear, and the temperature ranges between 10°C to 15°C. 

Ganesh Himal trek accommodation

You will stay overnight in tea houses along the Ganesh Himal trekking route. Tea houses are a very basic kind of accommodation operated by villagers. You get shared rooms and a washroom. Better carry a sleeping bag for more comfort and warmth. Single rooms are available only if you inform us priorly and pay extra. You will get to experience the mountain lifestyle during the Upper Dolpo trek. 


The Ganesh Himal trekking route offers Nepali and Tibetan meals mostly. The teahouses at the start of the trek have several western dishes like burgers, pasta, sandwiches, oat, etc on the menu. With the progress of the trek, you will mostly get dal bhat, momo, thenduk, Tibetan bread, soup, porridge, etc. Our Ganesh Himal trek package includes three meals a day, and all meals are given as per the menu of the tea houses.

It is better to carry your favorite snacks for the trek. There is also decent availability of beverages. Boiled drinking water is provided in the teahouses free of cost. For additional safety, you can use a water purification tablet. 

Group/private joining

We have a few fixed departures for the Ganesh Himal trek 2023 that you can join as a solo traveler and trek with other fellow trekkers from all around the world. Or you can do a private Upper Dolpo trek with your loved ones. Trekking in a big group reduces the per-head cost of the package.

Travel Insurance

It is better to have travel insurance if you are thinking of doing the Ganesh Himal trek. The Upper Mustang is a very remote area with not good hospital. The trail has no access to any medical facility. In case of any medical emergency, we have to air evacuate to a hospital in Kathmandu or Pokhara. Without travel insurance, it gets very challenging for us to provide rescue promptly. Therefore, we kindly request to buy travel insurance that covers air evacuation.
