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.
After Syabru Bensi, 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 Syabru. The return from the mountain can be made by trekking directly to Trishuli Bazaar in about 4 or 5 days from where a drive of about 3 hours bring one back to Kathmandu.
Paldor being in one of the mass of the Ganesh Himal, but still its position somewhat removed from the main range of the Ganesh. So as you reach the summit, a grandeur view awaits you, stretching from Mt. Machhapuchhre (Fish Tail) in the Annapurna range, all the way to the peaks of the Khumbu region along with the Mt. Shisapangma and the brown hills of Tibet. After the strenuous enjoyable climb a pleasant walk back to the busy bazaar of Trishuli via scenic route of Tiru Danda and Pansing Bhanjyang. A three hours drive on the winding road will brings you back to the civilization in Kathmandu.
