The Ganjala Pass is one of the most challenging passes in Nepal. This wedge in the Himalaya is situated at an altitude of 5,106 m. Our Lantang trek takes you over this pass as you make your way south from Langtang village which lies at 3,500m and is the national park headquarters is located here. The route from Kyagin Gompa in Langtang to Tarke Gyang in Helambu, require crossing the 5106m Ganja La. The pass is blocked by snow, so local inquiries about its condition, good equipment and some mountaineering experience are necessary for safe crossing.

The Helambu village exudes a Tibetan feel and you will see fields enclosed by stone walls as well as herds of yaks, the most important animal for the people here. From Tarke Gyang, we descend to Melamchi Khola before climbing to Pati Bhanjyang, then trek down to Sundarijal, from where we drive back to Kathmandu.
