Paldor Peak Climbing, at an elevation of 5860m, lies at the southeast end of the Ganesh Himal Range situated at the junction of Tiru and Karpu Danda (ridge). Paldor Peak Climbing is one of the most prominent mountain treks in the Ganesh Himal Range. The name Ganesh is influenced by the Elephant headed Hindu God of good luck. Paldor Peak is less challenging and easy to climb which requires little or no experience of mountaineering.
Paldor Peak Climbing is the nearest trekking from Kathmandu in the northwest. The journey starts on a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi which is the marked spot to start the trek on feet for Ganesh Himal and Langtang Range. The excursion in the Tamang heritage village in Tangjet and Gatlang is fascinating to see the untouched village with preserved culture. The colorful flags coming down from the dome of the stupas backed by the impressive snow-covered mountains are absolutely stunning.
Meanwhile, the Paldor Peak Climbing trail passes through the dense forest, on the ridge of the big rocks, the river banks, and crossing suspension bridges over the glacier melting from the mountains of the Tibetan border. Further, trails reach the army post after heading northwards along the ridge into the dense forest above Mailung Khola which is a tributary of Trishuli River.
After crossing the glacier, the main route to climb Paldor Peak is either to take the straight steep ridge of icy rock using ropes or hike from the crevassed back for an easy 45 ° ridge. The trekker set up a camp at the Paldor Base Camp and spend a day for acclimatization at an elevation of 4280 m. Further, a high camp is set up at an elevation advised by a climbing expert before the last push to the summit. And finally, trekkers push to Paldor summit which is worth all the hardship as it has magnificent views of the Himalayas such as Ganesh Himal, Langtang Lirung (7227m), Mt. Manaslu (8156m) Pabil Peak (7101m), Lobsang Karpo (7150m), Ganesh I (7406m) and Ganesh V (6950m) including mountains of Tibet such as Shishapangma (8013m).
