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.

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.
