Paldor peak is a stunning peak perched between the Tiru and Karpu Danda. This peak lines with the Ganesh Himal on its southeastern end. The journey to the summit of Paldor peak starts from Kathmandu.

Paldor peak is one of the most beautiful peaks in Nepal that offers incredible climbing experience. The Himalayan routes to Paldor peak are unique, untouched, and are soul-warming. What else could be more blissful than trekking in the quiet, peaceful, and angelic paths of Paldor peak?

Experience one of the most exciting climbing journey to the virgin routes in the Ganesh Himal range. The highlights of this climbing aren’t just the “climb”. However, the incredibly diverse nature, biodiversity, topology, traditions, and cultures are equally fascinating.

The ‘destination’ is the peak of Paldor. However the incredible journey to there and back, it is beyond what anyone can explain. The journey begins at Kathmandu.
