Paldor Peak Climbing

Paldor Peak 5,896m is located in the Ganesh Himal, northwest of Katmandu. The name Ganesh is taken from the elephant-headed Hindu god of good luck, probably the most popular goddess in the Kathamndu valley. It was Frist climbed by John Cleare and Ian Howell in 1974. Between Tilman's ascent in 1949 and Cleare's expedition of 1974 it is possible that Paldor had no other ascents. Since then the mountain has received more attention and many new routes added. Paldor is one of the best and famous trekking in Ganesh Himal region. This peak can be climbed from North East, South East, West and South West Ridge.

The quickest approach to Paldor and Ganesh Himal is from Sabru 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 Sabrubesi. 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 Gosainkunda range to Sabru. The return Back to Kathmandu.
