Paldor Peak Expedition, Paldor Peak Climbing, Climb Paldor, Paldor Base Camp, Paldor Peak Summit, Paldor Trekking, Paldor Peak ItineraryMt. Paldor peak lies at the south-east end of Ganesh Himal range at the junction of the Tiru and Khurpu 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 (7,234m.) and Manaslu (8,163m.). as well as the mountains of Tibet including Shishapangma (8,013m.). The quickest approach to Paldor Peak is from Sabrubensi near in the Trisuli valley which can be reached in an 8 to 9 hours drive from Kathmandu. A more interesting approach is the trek to Gatlang village through the hills Tamang heritage trail from Syabru Bensi.
