Paldor is one peak amongst many in the Ganesh Himal of Nepal. But it's distictive for good reason - it is one of the "Trekking Peaks of Nepal". The name Ganesh is taken from the elephant-headed Hindu god of good luck, probably the most popular deity in the Kathamndu valley. On a clear day the Ganesh Himal, with the icy fangs of Pabil (7,101m/23,300ft), Logsang Karpo (7,150m/23,458ft), Ganesh I (7,406m/24,298ft) and Ganesh V (6,950m/22,802ft) can be seen forming an imposing backdorp to the north-west of Kathamndu. It was first climbed nt Bill Tillman, Peter Lloyd, Tenzing Sherpa and Da Namgyal in 1949.
