Paldor Peak Climbing

Paldor peak is located at Ganesh Himal region, north-west of Kathmandu. Paldor peak is located at the junction of Tiru and Karpu hill at the head of MailungKhola, a tributary of the Trishuli River. Paldor peak is one of the least climbed peaks in Nepal, but one of the combined trips in Ganesh Himal region. The quickest approach to Paldor and Ganesh Himal is from Sabru near Dunche in the Trisuli valley which can be reached in a 6 to 8 hours drive from Kathmandu.
