Paldor Peak Climbing
Paldor Peak climbing lies at the south-east end of Ganesh Himal marking the junction of the Tiru and Karpu Dandas. They both lies 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. Ganesh Himal is on the northwest side of kathamndu during clear day. In addition to this we can see the icy fangs of Pabil (7,101m/23,300ft), Logsang Karpo (7,150m/23,458ft). Ganesh I (7,406m/24,298ft) and Ganesh V (6,950m/22,802ft).
The quickest approach to Paldor and Ganesh Himal is from Sabru near Dunche in the Trisuli valley. It takes 5-7 hrs from . 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. 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. A days walk takes us to the moraine filled valley below Paldor. 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. There is an alternate way to come back to kathmandu.
