Ganesh Himal is a sub-range of the Himalaya located mostly in north-central Nepal, but some peaks lie on the border with Tibet. The Trisuli Gandaki valley on the east separates it from the Langtang Himal; the Budhi (Buri) Gandaki valley and the Shyar Khola valley on the west separate it from the Sringi Himal and the Mansiri Himal (home of Manaslu, the nearest 8000m peak). The range lies about 70 km north-northwest of Kathmandu.
The Ganesh Himal is an enormous mountain massif assembled with nine towering peaks. Its icy pinnacle is visible in the north from Katmandu as well. It was named in honor of Ganesh, a Hindu deity who is represented in mythology as having the head of an elephant and the rest of the body in human form. The highest peak in Ganesh Himal is Mount Ganesh I (Yangra). The first successful ascent took place in 1955 by a Franco-Swiss Expedition team via the Southeast Ridge. Mount Ganesh II is notable for its exceptional steep rise above local terrain rising 5800m. There were several unsuccessful attempts on this peak from 1950s and finally, submitted in 1981 via Northeast spur (drive) and North Face. Nine to twelve days trekking is needed to reach in the base camp. The walk is mostly through typical Nepalese villages and forests and jungles of oak, rhododendron, bamboo, pine and others. We recommend the best season for this trip is late autumn and spring. Late March through April offers the incredible opportunity to see the forests burst into color as the six to seven rhododendron species blooming around the whole destination before get to Base Camp of Mount Ganesh Himal.
