Covid is now no more an issue in Nepal than it is here. So I am proposing a trek in mid March to Mid April of probably 21-23 days walking and 34-35 days from Vancouver to Vancouver. Actual dates would be confirmed when I recommend the best flight option.The trek will visit three sides of the Ganesh Range northwest of Kathmandu. With many peaks over 7000m. and many over 6000m. In the Tsum Valley, we will be directly under them and amongst them as we visit Tibetan Buddhist villages and monasteries.Most of our time in the valley is under 3500m. Optional side trips can go much higher.

Backing out of the Tsum Valley we traverse east below the Ganesha. This will be rhododendron season. The forests between mostly Gurung villages should be bursting with red and pink blossoms. We climb to the pass at 4000m…still below treeline and descend into the Trisuli Valley. On our way we should have to Tatopani to bask in the best hotsprings in Nepal Our access to and from the trailheads will be by chartered small bus or big van…our porters and supplies for the trip will travel with us. As far as I know this particular route has never been done. Parts of this route are well known: three days at the beginning of the Manaslu Circuit and two days on the Langtang cultural trek. Other than these days our route is seldom travelled.As trekking is slow to become busy post Covid We could be on our own most of the time, which definitely improves engagement with the local people. With the mountains as a constant backdrop, the rhodo blossoms unbelievable, and the villages rich in culture, I see this trek as a pure delight. This trek. is not yet up on my website but it’s still worth a visit…it will give you the idea. You can google Tsum Valley and Paldor Base Camp and the Langtang cultural trek. Go for the pictures.Don’t be fooled by the many companies offering parts of this They are saying than do them, not they are. But the photos are helpful info.
