Ganja La Pass Trek

The Ganja La pass (5,130m) is one of the most challenging passes in Langtang Region. The Langtang trek you over this pass as you make your way south from Langtang village, which lies at 3,300m and is the headquarters for the Langtang National Park. The pass is often blocked by snow, so inquiries about local conditions together with our mountain expertise, and quality equipment ensures a safe crossing. The Helambu villages exude a Tibetan feel and you will see fields enclosed by stone walls.

From Sybru Bensi, you will follow the Langtang River to the east until you get to Kyanching Gompa (3,049). Some 5 km to the south of Kyanching Gompa are the peaks of Naya Kanga (5,846m) and, to the south east, Ponggen Dopku (5,930m). Kyanching Gompa is surrounded by Mt Langtang Lirung (7245m ) on the west, Yala peak on the north , Dorje Lakpa(6966m), Urkeinmang(6387m), Loenpo Gang (6979) and Kangchenpo on the north-east. In Kyanjing Gompa there are a small Buddhist monastary and a cheese factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance. When you are crossing the pass there are spectacular views of Langtang Lirung and the Tibetan peaks beyond. Much of this route is spent above 3,000m (10,000ft) .The highest point of this trek is Ganjala Pass (5,122m).
