Lord Ganesh or the elephant God is worshipped as the "God of Fortune" by Hindus all over the world. The peak of Ganesh Himal resembles the head of an elephant; hence, the name Ganesh Himal became popular. The mountain peaks of Ganesh, Ganesh II, Ganesh III, and Ganesh IV form the Ganesh Himal range.
The highest peak among them is the Ganesh I which has a height of 7429m. The Ganesh Himal region boasts of exotic flora and fauna. We trek through the forests of blue pine, oak trees, and rhododendron. The aromatic smell of the herbs in the region follows us in the trail.
