Langtang Ganja La Pass Trek takes you over Ganja La Passsituated at 5130m.

Langtang Ganja La Pass trek is a challenging and adventure trek because of its difficulty. It requires technical skill and climbing equipment. It is also a popular trek among tourists as the main attraction of Ganja La Pass trek is an entirely wilderness adventure trek.

Kyangjing Gompa is a quaint little Tibetan village where you get a chance to experience the simplicity of Tibetan culture.

Ganja La Pass is a both lodging and camping trek. There are three days along the way with no lodges and settlements so only camping are possible and should be well equipped with food and supplies.

Thank you for a fantastic experience in the Himalaya, with Ramesh and Gopal who enhanced our enjoyment immensely. Ramesh’s knowledge and communication skill, and Gopal’s humour and strength made things a lot easier for us. The weather was glorious throughout; the scene of the himalaya, and the friendliness of the people of Langtang all made for a memorable experience in Nepal; Land of contrasts !
