Ganesh Himal, named after the Hindu God Ganesh (the legendary elephant headed god), is a sub range of the Himalayas, located in the north central part of Nepal and some located in the Tibetan border. Trisuli Gandaki valley on the east separates Gandesh Himal from Langtang while budhi Gandaki Valley and shyar Khola valley on the west separates it from Sringi HImal and Mansiri Himal. The range is about 70 km in the north – northwest of Kathmandu Valley. The highest peak in the range is Yangra or Ganesh I.
In addition to offering unparalleled views of the surrounding landscape, Ganesh Himal is also home to a diverse array of plant and animal life. Climbers from all over the world travel to this majestic peak, drawn by its reputation for testing physical endurance and mental fortitude. Despite its rugged reputation, Ganesh Himal continues to captivate explorers with its unique combination of natural beauty and technical challenges.
