Paldor Peak climbing is a popular climbing among all trekking peaks in Nepal, situated at the southeast end of Ganesh Himal designing the connection of the Tiru and Karpu Dandas at the head of the Mailung Khola, a branch of the Trisuli Gandaki River. On a clear day, the trekkers can see the Ganesh Himal, with the icy fangs of Pabil, Logsang Karpo, Ganesh I and Ganesh V forming an imposing backdrop to the northwest of Kathmandu. 

Paldor Peak was first climbed by Bill Tilman, Peter Lloyd, Tenzing Sherpa and Da Namgyal in 1949 by the North-East Ridge. It is said that it is difficult to fit Tilman’s description to the actual route. The quickest move toward Paldor and Ganesh Himal is from Syabru near Dhunche in the Trisuli valley that can be arrived in a 6 to 7 hours’ drive from Kathmandu. The trail then crosses the Langtang Khola to Syabrubesi. Upon crossing the Bhote Koshi River the route leads via Tamang villages of Tangjet and Gatlang then ascends northwards along the ridge before plunging into the forest above Mailung Khola to pick up the newly built road that leads to an army post. The most attractive approach for Paldor Peak climbing is the trek from Sundarijal through the hills of Helambu and over the Gosainkunda range to Syabru. Throughout the trek, you will see all the places beautiful and culturally rich. And also the trails are less crowded and the people are friendly. Paldor Peak climbing is the overview for anyone who is physically fit and has adventure spirit. After having the great Paldor peak summit experience trek back to Syabru Beshi and drive to Kathmandu with Keen Adventures Treks and Expedition team.

Our services include all the necessary facilities. This package for Paldor Peak Climbing is nicely designed and we aim to take care of you and your first Paldor Peak Climbing.
