Culturally and naturally this is an un-spoiled area and remains less crowded throughout the year. At the end of the Ganesh Himal trek, you will have a chance to see lifestyle, tradition and culture of Tamang people which appears unchanged since the 18th century. Flora-fauna, waterfalls, many species of birds, animals, dense forest etc. are the common sceneries during the trek. The valley is set ablaze by the blossom of double Jasmine; the forest is dense with Spanish oak, blue pine and in spring time the blooming of rhododendron sets the whole forest alight in a spectacular array of colors. Hot spas, gorges, glaciers and magnificent scenery complete the picture. This is highly recommended to people who want an authentic trekking experience in Nepal.
