Ganesh Himal 1st ExpeditionGanesh Himal I (Yangra Kangri) is the highest peak which is a subrange of the Himalayan mountain range. Although not an 8,000 metre peak, and little visited, it enjoys great vertical relief over the nearby valleys. Yangra, and the entire Ganesh Himal, lie between the Budhi Gandaki and Trisuli Gandaki valleys, northwest of Kathmandu. Yangra lies on the border between Nepal and Tibet, and is east-southeast of Manaslu, the nearest 8,000 metre peak.

The Ganesh Himal was first seriously reconnoitered for climbing by H. W. Tilman and party in 1950. The first attempt on the peak was in 1953.The first ascent, in 1955, was by a Franco-Swiss expedition led by Raymond Lambert, via the Southeast Face and Ridge. The ascent was most notable for the presence of a woman, Claude Kogan, in the summit party, which was very rare at the time. Lambert, Kogan, and Eric Gauchat achieved the summit, but Gauchat fell to his death on the descent.
