Paldor Peak (5896m/19,343ft) is situated in the Ganesh Himal, northwest of Katmandu.
Paldor Peak lies at the southeast end of Ganesh Himal at the junction of the Tiru and
Karpu Dandas at the head of the Mailung Khola, a tributary of the Trisuli River. In 1974
Mr. John Cleare and Ian Howell first climbed Paldor Peak. Paldor Peak has become one
of the best and most famous trekking peaks in the Ganesh Himal region. This peak can
be climbed from North East, South East, West and South West Ridge. Paldor Peak lies at
the southeast end of Ganesh Himal marking the junction of the Tiru and Karpu Dandas.
On a clear day the Ganesh Himal, with the icy fangs of Pabil (7,101m), Logsang Karpo
(7,150m), Ganesh I (7,406m) and Ganesh V (6,950m) can be seen forming an imposing
backdrop to the northwest of Kathmandu.
The quickest approach to Paldor is from Sabrubesi 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 Sabrubesi.
