Paldor Peak (5,896m) is located in the Ganesh Himal, northwest of Kathmandu. Besides Paldor, there are several Peaks in this area, which are worth climbing. As the area is relatively near to Kathmandu, it is possible to organize an entire climbing expedition within 17 days. High camp is relatively far from the summit. It is still quite a distance to climb from this camp. A summit camp needs to be placed another four hours climb from the high camp. From the summit camp, it is a very long day to climb Paldor.. 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 7 hours drive from Kathmandu. From here the trail crosses the Langtang Khola to Sabrubesi. After crossing the Bhote Kosi river the route leads via Tamang villages of Tangjet and Gatlang, then heads northwards along the ridge before dropping into the forest above Mailung Khola to pick up the newly built road that leads to an army post. The moraine filled valley below Paldor is reached from here in another days walk. A more interesting approach is the trek from Sundarijal (on the outskirts of Kathmandu valley) through the hills of Helambu and over the Gosainkunda range to Sabru. The return from the mountain can be made by trekking directly to Trisuli Bazaar.
