Dhading, Gorkha, Rasuwaa and Nuwakot districts are at the geographical center of Nepal and lie at the heart of the nation's history. It is from these hills that Gorkha hillsmen, led by Prithvi Narayan Shah, set out to unite Nepal in the late 1700s Century. Since then, Gorkha soldiers have received international fame for their bravery skill as warriors.
Although near to both Kathmandu and Pokhara, the Ganesh Himal Region
has remained a well-kept secret to all but Nepal's most avid trekkers. The unexplored area is concealed between the popular destinations of Langtang National Park
and the Mansaslu Conservation Area Project
. Wildflowers flourish, and waterfalls embellish the lush hill scenery in a land blessed with wide-ranging geographical, cultural and biological diversity. Sensational viewpoints feature the sublime Himalaya to the north. Most prominent is the Ganesh Himal Range, a family of peaks among the most attractive of the entire Himalaya. The Ganesh massif is named in honor of Hindu deity Ganesha, son of Shiva and Parvati. Selected viewpoints in the area offer immense panoramas !
Most rewarding are the cultural attractions including magnificent Ganga Jamuna a twin waterfall, Kalo, Seto lakes and Ganesh kunda/lake, and Tripurasundari temples and especially the hospitable people that inhabit the region. The area is populated mainly by Tamang, Gurung( Ghale) and to the north, and Brahmin, Chhetri, Dalit, Newar and Chepang at the lower elevations in the south. Visitors are warmly welcomed by all with a friendliness that makes Nepal legendary. At least six separate trekking itineraries are recommended and await travelers promising unforgettable adventures. Government registered trekking agencies will be happy to set up visitors with a guide and all necessities for exploring this captivating, undiscovered region.
The area is easily accessed by the Prithivi Highway as well as Pasang Lhamu highway along the southern fringes, connecting Kathmandu and Pokhara.
