Highlights

Overview

Ganga Jamuna Tinsure Trek is named after a twin waterfall called Ganga Jamuna located in Dhading district. This is recently opened off the beaten trail only known to very few trekkers.
 
Ganga Jamuna waterfall has long been a site of reverence for Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims. Usually in the month of November, an annual fair is held in Tripura Sundari temple nearby. People flock to the temple to offer special prayer with animal sacrifices. Nearby the waterfall is a natural spring called Kukur Dhara which literally means Dog Spring. Locals believe that taking a dip in this spring rid one of rabies.
 
The route is famous for Shamanism. Situated about one hour distance from Ganga Jamuna, Dhadkharka is a Gurung village where Shamanism can be seen in actual practice. Shamans from surrounding villages also visit the Tripura temple beating drums and chanting mantras. 
 
The trekking trail starts from Ghola Bhanjyang, goes through many villages inhabited by diverse ethnic communities such as Newar, Gurung, Brahmin, Chhetri and Magar. Dense forests of rhododendron, pine, oaks come alive with various species of birds and wild animals such as black bear, tiger, deer, porcupine, monkeys etc. You will be able to enjoy beautiful views of Ganesh Himal, Langtang, Shringi Himal, Manaslu range, Lamjung Himal, Himalchuli and Annapurna ranges along the trail, especially from Tinsure Lek which at 3149m is the highest point of this trek. 
 
Ganga Jamuna Tinsure Trek is a camping as well as home stay trek. This is a moderate trek suitable for trekkers of all age and ability. It is best approached during Spring and Autumn though it is open round the year.
