Paldor Peak Climbing is an extensively ascending Peak in Ganesh Himal. Ganesh Himal is a subrange of the Himalayas which placed in the north-central part of Nepal.  This range, spread about 70 km, is between Langtang and Manaslu. From Kathmandu, it lies to the North West direction.

The height of Paldor Peak is 5896m/19,343ft from sea level. In the range of Ganesh Himal, Paldor is located at the southeast end above the intersection of the Tiru and Karpu Ridge (Danda). Nearby this peak the Mailing Khola (Stream) originates. Mailung is one of the tributaries of the Trisuli River.

According to the historical record, Paldor Peak was first ascended by Mr. John Cleare and Ian Howell in 1974. The summit of Paldor Peak grants the spectacular views of high peaks in Ganesh Himal range- Yangra, Ganesh II/NW, Salasungo, and Pabil.

To summit Paldor there are many possible ways. This peak can be climbed from North East, South East, West and South West Ridge. The popular are Southeast Ridge and Northeast ridge routes.

In the south-east route to reach the lowest point of this ridge from the high camp of Paldor’s East, it needs to pass glacier with steep snow and ice slopes.  From the lowest point, the ridge continues with quite steep but without any major difficulties the summit can be done.

Likewise in Northeast ridge route, the trail goes through the path along a moraine from base camp. There is a small lake to the south of the peak named Fang. After the cross a stream flowing from the lake the trail heads toward the East Ridge of the Fang. The glacier at this point is flat and does not contain many crevasses.
