LANGTANG GANJA LA PASS TREK

Going over the Ganja La Pass requires previous alpine experience and with the help of our experienced mountain guides you should be able to cross it safely.

Our 19 day Langtang Ganja-La-Pass Trek takes you across Langtang, a narrow valley that lies just south of the Tibetan border. It is sandwiched between the Himalayan range to the north and a slightly lower range of peaks to the south – you can encounter really wonderful valley views during the trek from Lama Hotel to Kyanjin Gompa.

The trek begins in Sundarijal and follows a splendid hiking trail as you cross rivers and forests, and walk mostly uphill before you reach the holy lakes of Gosainkunda . According to Hindu mythology, the lakes were created by Lord Shiva’s Trishul (three pointed weapon) so that he could drink it’s cold water and quench the heat that he felt in his throat after he drank poison from Samudra manthan.

The Langtang region is the quietest of the main trekking regions and a favorite among our guides – close up mountain views and a good taste of rural life is what this region gives trekkers. Langtang is surprisingly quiet, that is, if you’ve been to the crowded Everest and Annapurna trekking regions. Besides a picturesque scenery, this trek also gives travelers an opportunity to observe the local people’s lives and culture.
