Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek

Overview

This is a strenuous trek with the highest point being the Langtang Ganja La pass trek, one of the most challenging passes in Nepal (5122m). There are three possible starting points for this trek Sybru Bensi, Targkegang or Kyanjin Gompa. In Kyanjin Gompa there is an ancient monastery and a yak cheese factory, Targkegang is quite a large village populated by the Tamang people. There is a large monastery here where they train the monks.
 

You now ascend through the beautiful, almost ethereal rhododendron forests into alpine landscapes. There are no tea houses this side of the pass and so we can choose idyllic camping spots affording amazing views of the Langtang region to acclimatise. The route from Gyang in Helambu, requires the crossing the 5122m Ganja La pass. The pass is snow free for much of the year but in the winter mountaineering equipment and experience is required. Local advice is always sought about the condition of the pass. The views from here are spectacular with a panorama that includes the Langtang Lirung and beyond into Tibet.

 

After a steep descent the rest of the trail is easy and comfortable. You will trek through Helambu villages that exclude a Tibetan feel. You will see fields enclosed by stone walls as well as herds of yaks, the most important animal for the people here and many Buddhist monuments. From Tarke Gyang, you can choose whether to descend to Melamchi Bazaar or Tharpu, from here we drive back to Kathmandu.

Autumn (September - November) and Spring (March - May) is the best trekking season for the trekking and mountaineering in Nepal Because by that time the Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate which offers magic view of snow cap mountains and valley each day. Spring Season is such a beautiful time to see many different flowers, plants and rare animals especially Rhododendron flower along the way is the major attraction. Walking and trekking is also very suitable during this season.

Summer (June - August) and winter (December - February). This season provides a different scenic views each hours unpredictable weather ,heavy monsoon rainfall mostly in Annapurna region it is very much clear to trek around Mustang by summer time because of altitude you can skip the rain if you go those areas., so ,Everest, Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.
