This trekking area lies on the central eastern region of Nepal. This region offers spectacular views, untouched natural splendor and wild and friendly inhabitations. The Ganesh Himal is named after the elephant-headed God of Good Fortune. The Ganesh Himal can clearly be seen from Kathmandu Valley. The Ganesh Range Peaks (Ganesh I, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, Ganesh IV) stand out like crystal that is the "Great Himalayan Chain" forming the skyline. This great Himalayan massif is contained between the valley of the Buri Gandaki in the west and Bhote Koshi in the east, which becomes Trishuli Khola in the lower section. After we eat breakfast at the restaurant near by our office, we take a bus ride out of the Valley and up through the hills. The first glimpse of Ganesh Himal greets us, when we go crossing over the hills. After 5 hours bus ride we arrive at the trek starting point Betrawati. We are going to spend the first night of our outdoor adventure right nearby the Trishuli River at Betrawati in the small town. Our Guide gives a short lesson of trekking on the first night. He also explains about the altitude sickness and all the beautiful spots from where you can see an excellent view of mountains.During the rest of our 12 days trip, we observe the different ways of life, culture and come in contact with the people in the small village, passing through the dense forestations and meadows. We cross through high Shing La Pass, which offers an excellent view of the massif Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Annapurna, etc. On the last day of the trip we take a bus ride back to Kathmandu or Pokhara or Chitwan from Dhading Bensi where we spend the final night of our trip
