To the North West of Kathmandu and western range of Langtang Himal, Mount Ganesh Himal, a subordinate range of the Himalayan mountain range in Nepal lies between the Budhi Gandaki and Trisuli valleys. Few peaks of Ganesh Himal lie on the border with Tibet. The peaks are not more than 7429 meters height but Ganesh Himal is vertically located over the nearby valleys, especially Ganesh I & Ganesh II. The highest peak in Ganesh Himal is Ganesh I -7429meter which is called Yangra. Although, the peak was first attempted by H. W. Tilman’s team back in 1950, the first ascent was made only in 1955 by a Franco-Swiss Expedition team via the south east face and ridge.
The Ganesh Himal is an enormous mountain massif assembled with nine towering peaks located southwest of Mount Manaslu. Its icy pinnacle is seen in the north from Katmandu too. It was named in honor of Lord Ganesh, a Hindu god who is represented in mythology as having the head of an elephant and the rest of the body of human. You should drive from Kathmandu to the gateway of the Manaslu trekking circuit Arughat to begin Ganesh Himal Expedition & continue to Seti Khola, Fillim, Domje & then you can reach to the Ganesh Himal Base Camp.
