Trip Introduction: 

Ganesh Himal is a sub range of the North Central Himalayas of Nepal which is located around 70 kilometer northwest of capital city Kathmandu. The range of Ganesh Himal is segmented into four parts where the highest peak is Ganesh I (Yangra) with an altitude of 7,422 meters and other similar impressive peaks are; Ganesh II 7,118 meters, Ganesh III (Salasungo) 7,043 meters, and Ganesh IV (Pabil) 7,104 meters.  The name Ganesh Himal is derived from the name of Hindu God “Ganesh” since the shape of Ganesh IV (Pabil) rises in a shape of elephant. Mt. Ganesh I (7,118m) was firstly ascended in 1955 by Swiss and French expedition group.
