Paldor Peak Langtang Region

Trip Overview

When the weather is clear, the Ganesh Himal range can be seen an selightful backdrop to the northwest of Kathmandu, with the icy peaks of Ganesh l (7,406 m), Ganesh (6,950 m), pabil (7,101 m) and Logsang karpo (7,150 m) peering above the forested valley rim .

Paldor lies at the south-east end of this range at the junction of the Tiru and Karpu 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. Onreaching the col there are two options. Either climb the straightforward ridge using ropes, or continue around to the crevassed back for a simpler, 45 degrees, ridge. In good conditions making a travers of the mountain is possible.

From the summit there are excellent views of the Ganesh Himal Peaks, Langtang Lirung (7,227 m) and Manaslu (8,156 m) as well as the Mountains of Tibet including shishapangma (8,013 m).The peak was first climbed by Bill Tilman, Peter Lloyd, Tenzing Sherpa and Da Namgyal during the monsonn of 1949 via the North-east Ridge.

The trek in to base camp is along the popular Tamang keritage Trail.
