Trip Overview

Paldor Peak is a stupendous destination yet one of the least climbed peaks of Nepal. Elevated at 5,903m, the peak gloriously lies in the southeast end of Ganesh Himal also named after The Elephant God. Besides, the peak is considered as the junction of Tiru and Karpu. The expedition is getting prominent as it offers a pristine and untrodden trekking experience in the secluded part of the Ganesh Himal Range. One can truly savor some unprecedented sights of Ganesh Himal (7,405m), Langtang Lirung (7,227m), Manaslu (8,516m), Shishapangma (8,013m), Pabil Himal (7,101m), and a few Tibetan peaks from the top of the mountain.


The first ascent to the summit of Paldor Peak was remarkably achieved by John Cleare and Ian Howell in 1974. It is relatively considered as one of the easiest peaks to ascend without any technical obstructions. In spite of trekking below 6,000 meters, it is undoubtedly a magnificent peak where hundreds of beginners come to relish its remarkable beauty. There are numerous routes to the summit however one of the most standard routes is through the West Ridge. Additionally, trekkers can visit two of the most important Tamang villages on the way: Tangjet and Gatlang, where they get to experience unique Tamang culture and lifestyle. The trekking experience gets even more exciting as trekkers have the opportunity to traverse through the Langtang National Park, where endangered species wander and floras and faunas bloom in the wilderness. 


Paldor peak climbing requires good physical strength and endurance. Although it is not very technical, adventure in high-altitude mountaineering should never be underestimated. Therefore, before you head to the adventure, we must ensure that your physical and mental health is in the perfect state to step into the wilderness. 


Best Seasons to climb Paldor Peak


The most favorable seasons to climb Paldor Peak are Autumn (October-November) and Spring (March-May) as the weather remains clear and mild in these times.
