Ganesh Himal Region Trek is a sub-range of the Himalayas located mostly in north-central Nepal, but some peaks lie on the border with Tibet. The Trisuli Gandaki valley on the east separates it from the Langtang Himal; the Budhi (Buri) Gandaki valley and the Shyar Khola valley on the west separate it from the Sringi Himal and the Mansiri Himal (home of Manaslu, the nearest 8000m peak). The range lies about 70 km north-northwest of Kathmandu.
We suggest you to bring following equipment when you come to Nepal for trekking. The list can be adjusted according to your needs, name of trekking and time of your trekking. Please remember that during trekking your luggage will be carried out by porter. One porter carries luggage of two people. So if you are more than one, he will carry 12 to 15 kg of your stuff.
