Ganga Jamuna trek is a newly introduced short, moderate trekking in Dhading district. The twin waterfalls, Ganga & Jamuna are the main attraction of Ganga Jamuna trek. It is located in the north-west region of Kathmandu from where the diorama of Langtang range, Ganesh Himal, Shringi Himal, Manaslu range, Lamjung Himal, Himalchuli, Annapurna range and many other unnamed mountains and peaks is remarkable.

Ganga Jamuna is considered as the Hindu Pilgrimage site where a religious fair is observed around the famous Tripura Sundari temple three days before the full moon in the first week of November. Here, you can observe a holy stone which is highly revered by the Hindu devotees and local people. It is believed that this holy stone preserves the divine power and is a source of perennial spring.

The trail passes through settlements of various ethnic groups of Nepal including Newar, Gurung, Brahmin, and Chhetri. The forests surrounding these settlements are intact with beautiful flora and fauna such as rhododendrons and pine trees.

Ganga Jamuna trekking can be arranged on both home stay and full board camping basis. The best time for trekking in this area is during spring and autumn seasons. However, treks are possible throughout the year.

Spectacular scenery.......

(5/5)

We had a great time on this short trek and saw some spectacular scenery. Our guide ( Dinesh Dhakal ) and porter ( Hari Pohudal ) really made the trek an experience. We (and a certain Penguin) won’t ever forgets. I can’t recommend them highly enough to anyone!

This was our first visit to Nepal and it won’t be our last!
