Paldor Peak Climbing
Paldor Peak Climbing lies at the south-east end of the Ganesh Himal marking the junction of the Tiru and Karpu Dandas at the head of the Mailung Khola, a tributary of the Trisuli Gandaki River. The name Ganesh is taken from the elephant-headed Hindu god of good luck, probably the most popular deity in the Kathmandu valley. On a clear day, the Ganesh Himal, with the icy fangs of Pabil (7101m), Logsang Karpo (7150m), Ganesh I (7406m) and Ganesh V (6950m) can be seen forming an imposing backdrop to the north-west of Kathmandu. Paldor Peak Climbing one of the easy peak climbing in Nepal and easy to access there in short time means in a week can do summit the Paldor Peak climb.
The quickest approach toPaldor Peak Climbing and Ganesh Himal is from Syabru Besi near Dunche in the Trisuli valley which can be reached in a 6 to 7 hours drive from Kathmandu. From here the trail crosses the Langtang Khola to Syabru Besi. After crossing the Bhote Kosi River the route leads via Tamang villages of Tangjet and Gatlang and then heads northwards along the ridge before dropping into the forest above Mailung Khola to pick up the newly built road that leads to an army post. The moraine filled valley below Paldor is reached from here in another days walk. A more interesting approach is the trek from Sundarijal (on the outskirts of Kathmandu valley) through the hills of Helambu and over the Gosaikunda range to Syabru. The return from the mountain can be made by trekking directly to Trisuli Bazaar in about 4 or 5 days.
