The Ganesh Himal is a mountain range in the Central Himalayas , 75 km north-northwest of Kathmandu , on the border between Nepal and the People's Republic of China .

The Ganesh Himal is bounded by the river valleys of the Trishuli in the east and the Budhigandaki in the west and the Tsum valley in the north. The highest peak is the 7,424  m high Yangra Kangri ( Ganesh I ). The mountain range has four seven-thousanders. The Ganesh Himal has no particular tourist significance. The mountains of the Ganesh Himal are very rarely climbed, as the neighboring mountain ranges of Manaslu and Annapurna to the west have several eight-thousanders . Only the relatively low panoramic mountain Paldor is one of the so-called trekking peaks.

The Ganesh Himal is an enormous mountain range with nine peaks. Its ice-covered peaks can be seen from Kathmandu to the north. The mountain group was named in honor of Ganesha , a Hindu deity with an elephant head.


The most important peaks of the mountain range are:
