The Ganesh Himal trek takes us to the northern-central part of Nepal. The Ganesh Himal range lies majorly in Nepal and minor in the border of Nepal and Tibet. The Ganesh Himal is named after a Hindu God Ganesh with a head of an elephant. The range of Ganesh includes Ganesh I (7422m.), Ganesh II (7118m.), Ganesh III (7043m.) and Ganesh IV (7104m.). Ganesh I is known as Yangra, Ganesh III is known as Sasalungo and Ganesh III is known as Pabil. The south face of Ganesh IV (Pabil) resembles with the face of Lord Ganesh.
Though Ganesh Himal trek is not a usually preferred one, choosing this trek will give you opportunities to explore a variety of flora. Jasmine, Oak trees and Rhododendron forests are the major ones.
