Langtang Valley Ganjala Pass Trek

Overview

Langtang valley Ganja La Pass, north of Kathmandu, offers a multitude of trekking destinations. Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just below the main Himalayan range to the north Tibet Border and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. A visit to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore Tibetan villages, Tamang Villages, to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers at comfortably low elevations. Kyanjin Gompa is a last Tibetan village in the valley, from where a trek starts to Helambu over Ganja La Pass (5,200 m). The Ganja la pass itself is not easy trek. During autumn and spring season, the Ganja La pass trek opens for trekkers.

A trek over Ganja La Pass offers wilderness and adventure experiences. If you are trekking during spring, the forest on the trail is colorful and blooming full of rhododendrons. To cross from Langtang via the Ganja La Pass is a serious undertaking requiring good equipment and experience from local guides. For three or four days there are no facilities and groups with their staff must be fully self-sufficient. Crossing the pass requires the use of technical climbing equipment and trekkers must be skilled and be prepared. The trail follows a small valley before reaching the glaciated pass where the use of ropes, crampons and ice axes may be necessary.
