Ganesh Himal Singla Pass Trek offers an extraordinary panorama of the Ganesh Himal Massif, Manaslu and the Langtang range, highlights of this journey include not only the mountain views but abundant flora and fauna, magnificent village scenery and the welcoming people of this mid-hills with their captivating customs and traditions. The best seasons to visit is September to November as well as February through June and even outside of these times the spectacular attractions and relatively low elevation make it an all-season adventure. The trail begins from Kathmandu and follows the same road route to Bhalche a town on the border between Nuwakot district to the south and Rasuwa district to the north. Bhalche is about 30 Km north of the large bazaar town of Trishuli.

Visitors will get an opportunity to observe the inhabitants of these areas, who live in flat roofed fortress-like village in this remote area. The journey around these legendary mountains is among the most enjoyable though it is too tough for trekkers.
