Paldor Peak

Paldor lies at the south-east end of Ganesh Himal range at the junction of the Tiru and Karpu Dandas (ridges). While it is under 6,000m, it provides a satisfying and non-to-difficult climb. The main route across the glacier is crevassed and takes some finding. On reaching the col there are two options. Either climb the straightforward ridge using ropes, or continue around to the crevassed back for a simpler, 45 degree, ridge. In good conditions making a traverse of the mountain is possible.
From the summit there are excellent views of the Ganesh Himal peaks, Langtang Lirung (7,227m) and Manaslu (8,156m) as well as the mountains of Tibet including Shishapangma (8,013 m).
 
The quickest approach to Paldor is from Syabrubesi after a 6 to 7 hour drive from Kathmandu. Here the trail meets the Langtang Khola. After crossing the Langtang Khola, the route leads via Tamang to the heritage villages of Tangjet and Gatlang. It then heads northwards along the ridge before dropping into the forest above Mailung Khola to join up the newly built road that leads to an army post. The moraine filled valley below Paldor Peak is just a day’s walk from there. An even more exciting approach is the trek from Sundarijal (on the outskirts of Kathmandu valley) through the hills of Helambu and over the Gosainkunda range to Syabrubesi. We are happy to advise you on your options and plan the trip according to your ideas.
