|Elevation||7,422 m (24,350 ft)|
|Borders on||Langtang Himal, Sringi Himal and Mansiri Himal|
Ganesh Himāl 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 name for the range comes from the Hindu deity Ganesha, usually depicted in the form of an elephant. 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", but this is not the standard practice in the literature for this range.

- ^ The names Ganesh II, Salasungo (Ganesh III), and Pabil (Ganesh IV) are from the Finnmap They do not agree with other, older sources such as Carter or Neate (which is derived from Carter). Ohmori attests the name "Lapsang Karbo" for the southeast peak, here called Salasungo.
- ^ Heights are from the Finnmap.
