Langtang Ganjala Pass trek

Trip Overview Langtang Ganjala Pass trek

The challenging trek into the remote vicinities along with highly unpredictable climatic conditions make Langtang Ganjala Pass trek the exhilarating one full of surprises.
Existing to the north of Kathmandu and at the close proximity to Tibetan border, Langtang Ganja La Pass Trek is the popular trekking in famed Langtang valley that traverses the deep woods of Langtang National Park rendering shelter to diverse species of floras and faunas. The wildlife includes migratory birds, Pika, deer, monkeys and Himalayan Goat named Thar. 
Trekking experts from ‘Alpine Zone Treks’ have devised 16-day concise trekking package that kick starts with 9 hours of picturesque driving through the serpentine road with appealing sighting of mountains, paddy fields, terraces and cascading waterfalls on the backdrop. Entering the Nuwakot district from Kathmandu, we will persevere along the tranquil premises of Osho Tapoban- a famed Meditation Center that teaches Meditation techniques based on the eastern spiritual Master Shree Rajanish Osho and travel by the side of Kakani, the popular hill station to Dhunche where we will be briefly stopping prior to heading towards Syabrubesi that sets into motion the electrifying travel experience to the Langtang Village, the biggest Tamang settlement in Langtang Valley which is still retaining its primordial culture and traditions untouched with modern influences where we get to see the ways of living in rustic Nepal.
Plodding along the river bed of Langtang River, we will be visiting Kyangjin Gompa that is a monastery which remains enclosed by Langtang Lirung, Yarja, Dorje Lakpa and other Tibetan mountains. Paying visit to the cheese factory, we will progress forward to Ganja La Pass which existing at 5122 meters makes it the highest point of Langtang Ganjala Pass trek. Rejoicing in the astounding vistas of Langtang Lirung, Ganesh Himal, Lang Sisa and other Tibetan mountains and Yangri Khola, we will lower down to Keldang and move across several Tamang settlements of Dukpu, Tarkegyang and Shermathang to arrive at Melamchi Pul which concludes the trekking aspect as we take a drive of mere 3 hours to be back to Kathmandu. Lang Sisa which when translated to the Sherpa tongue becomes ‘ the place where ox died’ which is probably why it was named as we can still observe the stone ox decorated with prayer flags.
 The most challenging section of Langtang Ganjala Pass trekking will undoubtedly be   Ganjala pass which demands equipments like crampon, ice axe and fixing ropes for its mountaineering yet the sights it bestow will significantly overcome the trouble we had to endure.
