Ganesh Himal is named after the elephant-headed god of good fortune, Ganesh. Ganesh Himal is located at the Dhading- Gorkha border of north-central Nepal. The Ganesh Himal range lies about 70km northwest of Kathmandu. The trail heavily influenced by Tibetan culture is still untouched and less known about.
This 20-day trek starts from the capital of the country Kathmandu, heads towards Trishuli before trekking and ends with a drive from Gorkha Bazar to Kathmandu. This trek guides through different colourful villages inhibited by people of different caste, culture and creed, several dense forests and meadows strating from Samari Bhanjyang. The base camp provides excellent views of mountains such as Ganesh Himal (7406m), Langtang (7300m), Annapurna (8091m), Fishtail (6990m), Manaslu (8163m), Lamjung (6800m) and many more.
The highest peak in the range is Yangra which is also known as Ganesh I which is at the altitude 7422m. Besides this, there are three Himalayas named as Ganesh Himal II (7118m), Salasunga also known as Ganesh Himal III (7043m) and Pabil known as Ganesh Himal IV (7104m).This trek passing through different villages to the base camp of Ganesh Himal is quite strenuous. Anyone intending to go for this trek must be physically fit and have a history of trekking as the trails are steep and demanding.
