About Langtang Ganja La Pass Trek

Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek is situated north of the Kathmandu Valley and just south of the Tibetan border. It is between the main Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. To the west of Langtang is Ganesh Himal with a variety of 6000 m to 7000m mountains. The northern parts of the area mostly fall within the boundaries of Langtang National Parks. The main ethnic groups here are Sherpa and Tamang whose religious practices, languages, and dress are much similar to those of Tibet.

A visit to the Langtang Valley offers an opportunity to explore villages, climb small peaks and visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. The forest in this region has temperate and sub-alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkeys, Thar, and Pika. The scenery here is spectacular, and the trek is more adventurous. The route from Kyanjin Gompa in Langtang to Tarke Gyang in Helambu crossing 5106m begins at Ganja La Pass trekking. Crossing the Langtang Khola below Kyanjin Gompa, the trail makes a steep climb along the ridge on the south side of the valley through a forest of rhododendron and juniper.

Ganja La trail continues south, following streams and moraines and climbing steeply towards the pass. The views to the north from the pass of Langtang Lirung and the snow peaks in Tibet, including Shisha Pangma at 8013m, are outstanding. On a clear day, you can see the views of many ranges to the south. West of the pass is 5846m Naya Kangri named as Ganja La Chuli. It is one of the trekking peaks, and you can climb it with a permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA). Tea house facilities are not available for the entire Ganja La region. Hence trekking should be fully supported and self-sufficient to meet all requirements that come up. Langtang Ganja la Pass trekking is a challenging trail that requires technical climbing equipment and trekkers must be skilled in the use of materials like rope, crampons, ice axes, etc.

For travelers to Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek, we can modify the days according to the option and concerns of the travelers. If you have unlimited or limited time, then the Langtang Valley Trek, the Langtang Gosainkunda Trek, or the Langtang Helambu Circuit would be a suitable alternative for your vacation.

The best time to trek Ganja La pass?

Langtang Ganja La pass trek is better suited to people seeking adventure and natural splendor. The tour will take you through valleys and alpine forests. A trek to Ganja La Pass is possible in spring between April and June, and in autumn between August and October. Ganja La Pass is a difficult hike in the Langtang region. The pass features a narrow and difficult trail with a terrifying mountain cliff. Moreover, Ganja la pass is at an elevation of  5122 meters. After the pass, there are more unpleasant routes that, if handled incorrectly, might easily leave you lost for two or three days. It is always better to follow the guidelines of the National park and the travel agency. Cover yourself in warm clothes and walk at a moderate speed.

After that, you will be taken to the hotel. If there is time after check-in, you will go to the MGT office to meet the other travellers and your hiking guide as well as to make any last-minute preparations for the trip. Your arrival time will determine everything. (BB base, one night in a luxury hotel)

Day 2: By bus for 7-8 hours from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi (1420m) through Trisuli Bazaar (540m).

Depending on the number of people traveling, the drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi takes about nine hours by bus or Land Cruiser. Driving over picturesque slopes and ridgeline panoramas to Syabru Besi after leaving Kathmandu, you pass via Dhunche. You may see Ganesh Himal, terraces, and lush hills as you travel along the road at the Trishuli River's bank. You get the impression that you are moving toward deep land as you travel through Dhunche. The road is still being built, you realize at the same time. (Full-board accommodation in a tea house overnight)

Day 3: Syabru Bensi to the Lama Inn (2470m) 5-6 hours.

The trail initially follows the Langtang Khola and passes through Bhote Koshi. This path passes through the Landslide area as it gradually climbs to Bamboo. Your trip then gradually climbs to Rimche (2400 meters), passing via Bamboo (1960 meters), which is located along the bank of the Langtang Khola. If you'd like, you can eat lunch here. The trail to the Lama Hotel is level toward the end. If you're lucky, you might spot red pandas, monkeys, and bears along the way. (Full-board accommodation in a tea house overnight)

Day 4: From the Lama Hotel to Langtang Village (3430m) 5-6 hours.

The walk follows the Gumanechok, Ghoda Tabela, or "Horse Stable" trail. Following this, the trail becomes gently inclining and picturesque in the valley with the grazing Yaks. As we approach the peak, the vista from Langtang village, one of the small and historic settlements along this trekking path, becomes even more breathtaking. (Full-board accommodation in a tea house overnight)

Day 05: Langtang Village to Kyanjing Gompa (3870m) 5-6 hours.

It's a shorter walk today, but it's long enough to acclimate. Because of the well-known cheese manufacturing, the surroundings are fascinating. A spot to explore the valley and many other minor peaks is the stunning valley in the lap of the Langtang Lirung and other nearby mountains (Overnight at tea house on a full board basis)

Day 6: Trek Kyanjing Gompa to Ngegang (4000m) 5-6 hrs

In Ngegang, there aren't any homes or teahouses that can be seen. The trail keeps increasing, and there aren't many natural plants to cover the region. (Full-board accommodation in a tent camp overnight)

Day 7: Trek Ngegang to Keldang (4300m) via Ganja La (5200m) 6-7 hrs

Today is a rather taxing day because you have to climb over 5200 meters to cross the Ganja La pass. The majority of the time all year long, the Ganja La Pass is covered in snow and ice. (Full-board accommodation in a tent camp overnight)

Day 8 Trek Keldang to Dukpu (4080m) 6-7 hrs

Your camping location will be inside the forest after a long day of walking along the ridge, and grassland, with breathtaking views of the mountains. (Full-board accommodation in a tent camp overnight)

Following a 200-meter descent, the trail ascends the 4100-meter pass. The Annapurna and Mt. Everest regions can be seen in stunning detail from the Pass. The trail descends from the pass past small herders and through rhododendron and pine forests before arriving at Tarkeghyang. You can go to Sherpa communities and one of the oldest Buddhist monasteries. These are prosperous settlements with hospitable and upbeat residents. (Full-board accommodation in a tea house overnight)

Day 10: Trek Tarkeghyang to Shermathang (2621meters) 5-6 hrs

On this day, the track is rather simple and travels through level terrain with lovely woodlands in its path. Moving forward, you cross a few minor streams. Shermathang is a charming Sherpa village half way to Shermathang, where you may visit numerous historic monasteries and take in views of the Jugal Himal mountain on the village's north face. (Full-board accommodation in a tea house overnight).

Day 11: Drive back to Kathmandu from Sermathang to Malemchi Pul Bazar (846m)

The trails continue to descend as we leave Sermathang, first to Dubhochaur at 1500 meters, and then once more precipitously to Melamchi Pul Bazar (830 meters), where our van or bus is waiting for us. Do not forget that the Mountain Guide Trek crew will be joining us for a wonderful celebration "Farewell supper" to mark the successful completion of the Langtang Ganja La Pass Trek!
