Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek - 15 days
Langtang regions best trekking: Gosainkunda-Helambu Trekking

Langtang is one of the least trekked, yet one of the most beautiful, trekking areas. Located north of the Kathmandu Valley, the route goes through traditional and ethnic villages and untouched forests on the way to the peaks of Langtang-Lirung. This trek reveals the contrast between the Hindu culture of the Kathmandu Valley and the Buddhist culture to the immediate north of Kathmandu.

Langtang Ganja-la Pass trekking is really very challenging for adventure people. While we ahead our trek to Ganja-la Pass (5130m), there will be no availability of teahouses for 3-4 days, so that we have to prepare our things ie; tent, food and equipemtns fully. The pass is mostly blocked by snow, so local inquiries about its condition, good equipment and mountaineering experience guide and sherpas are necessary for safe crossing.

From the pass the views across the valley to the peaks of the Langtang ranges are wonderful panoramic. After cross the Ganja La pass, we will arrive in the Helambu village which excludes a Tibetan feel and you will see fields enclosed by stone walls as well as herds of yaks, the most important animal for the people here.
