Ganesh Himal Expedition (7,422m)

ganesh himalGanesh Himal is located in North-central part of Nepal with some of its peak lie on the border of Tibet. It is a sub-range of the Himalayan mountain range.  Ganesh Himal separates Trisuli Gandaki valley to the east of Langtang Himal, Budhi Gandaki valley and the Shyar Khola valley on the west of Sringi Himal and Mansiri Himal. It lies about 70km north-west of Kathmandu. The highest peak in the range is Yangra (Ganesh I), 7,422 m (24,350 ft). Ganesh Himal provides great vertical relief over the nearby valleys; Ganesh NW (known as Ganesh II or Ganesh III) are the most favored in this respect, being closest to the Shyar Khola. The name for the range comes from the Hindu deity Ganesha, usually depicted in the form of an elephant. In fact, the south face of Pabil (Ganesh IV) slightly resembles an elephant, with a ridge that is reminiscent of an elephant's trunk. Names and elevations for this range differ from source. The least ambiguous way to refer to the different peaks would be "Ganesh NW", etc. but this is not the standard practice in the literature for this range.
