Ganesh Him?l is a sub-range of the Himalayas 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 highest peak in the range is Yangra (Ganesh I), 7,422 m (24,350 ft). There are three other peaks over 7000 metres plus some fourteen others over 6000 metres.[Ganesh Himal enjoys great vertical relief over nearby valleys, particularly Ganesh NW (see below), 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 to source; see the notes below the table. 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.
Mt. Ganesh Himal Expedition, a subordinate range of the Himalayan mountain range in Nepal, lies between the Budhi Gandaki and Trisuli valleys, north West of Kathmandu and western range of Langtang Himal. Some of the peaks of Mount Ganesh Himal lie on the border with Tibet. The peaks are without the height of more than 7429meter but Ganesh Himal is vertically located over the nearby valleys, especially Ganesh I & Ganesh II. The highest peak in Ganesh Himal is Ganesh I-7429m which is called (Yangra).

The following basic equipment checklist should help you with your packing. Please remember that you should always try to keep the weight of your equipment down to a minimum. NB. This is just a check-list. We are not asking you to bring everything on this list; much will depend on personal preference. As a general rule, cyclists will need similar clothing to trekkers. The one additional (essential) item is good quality padded cycling shorts (loose and baggy, as previously discussed).
- Cycling helmet
- Fleece headband (to keep your ears warm)
- Lightweight long sleeved thermal shirt
- Lightweight windproof biking jacket
- T-shirts (3)
- Padded cycling shorts - baggy style
- Underwear (4 pairs)
- Lightweight trekking boots
- Camelbak or 2 x 1 litre water bottles & cages
- Sleeping bag
- Small padlock & spare keys
- Fingerless biking gloves
- Waterproof (breathable) jacket
- Fleece jumper (eg Polartec 200)
- Light weight ‘trekking style’ pants
- Warm cycling tights
- Socks (4 pairs)
- Cycling shoes
- Spare laces
- Small towel
- First aid kit (See first Aid medicine above)
- Head lamp eg. Petzl Zoom (spare bulb & battery)
- 4 large plastic bags (for keeping items dry in kitbag)
In addition to the checklists for general and trekking equipment above, and depending on the trip you have chosen, various items of mountaineering equipment may also be required, eg:
- Plastic boots and crampons (preferably step-in bindings) with front points.
- Mountaineering harness.
- Mountaineering ice-axe (60-75cms long depending on your height and personal preference.)
- 120cms (4ft) climbing sling and two locking carabineers
- Telescopic ski-sticks (optional)
- Prussik loops
- Climbing helmet (optional)
Most if not all of this equipment will be needed for any trip that crosses steep, snow-covered ground, or which includes sections of glacier travel. Our recommendation that you take no more than 15 kilos (33 pounds) of trekking equipment does not include your plastic boots, ice axe, crampons or harness/carabineers. (During the trek, climbing hardware will be carried separately from your personal trek bag, in group bags until needed).
