This Langtang Ganja-La pass Trekking is the most challenging and unique wilderness trekking trip in Langtang region. Lantang Ganja-La pass trekking takes you all the way through the lush valleys, evergreen forests, high water falls and emerald hills with panoramic Himalayan views on its backdrop. This trekking trail also takes you through the beautiful Langtang valley and the Sherpa land of Helambu. These places are mostly inhibited by Tamangs and Helamo ethnic group. Here you get to know their culture, tradition, unique dressing style, ancient trading style and the hardship of rural life.
Lantang Ganja-La pass trekking begins from Syabru Bensi, which is linked with Kathmandu by 120 km motor able road. From Syabru Bensi the trekking trail follows through alpine forests, rich flora and fauna and high altitude yak pastureland's, Step up and Down a little Plateau up to the Langtang valley. Langtang valley is the biggest Tamangs settlement rich in Tibetan culture and picturesque scenery of mountain and glaciers. From this beautiful valley the trail ascends up Kyangjing Gompa (3,800m.) - is widely known for the yak cheese. In Kyangjing Gompa we spend a day acclimatizing our self and exploring the vistas in the periphery. From Kyangjing Gompa we come across the Ganja La pass. This pass to the north, offers panoramic view of Langtang Lirung and the snow peaks in Tibet, including Shisha Pangma at (8013m).On a clear day you can also view other beautiful hills and mountains to the south and towards west of the pass is Naya Kanga (5846m), previously named Ganja La Chuli. From the pass the trail descends down through steep and dangerous loose screen slope for about 200m before emerging onto a snow slope. Somehow, the descent from Ganja La pass, like most mountain descents, seems more treacherous than the ascent, no matter which direction one uses to cross the pass. The trekking trail descends through the basin along a distinct path, marked seldom by rock Cairns, towards a small stream at (4,400m.). As we move further we pass through a waterfall towards a beautiful Helambu region. From here we make our way through one of several substitute trails through small Sherpa villages towards the road head at Melamchi pul bazaar.
