Introduction to Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek

The Langtang Ganjala Pass trek is another popular trekking route in the Langtang area. Ganjala Pass trekking provides a complete adventure experience. If you’re hiking in the spring, the trail’s jungle is colored and covered with rhododendrons. Ganjala Pass (5,130m) is a bit of a difficult adventure that requires good equipment and experience from local guides. Ganjala Pass makes the trek challenging with unfavorable weather conditions in Nepal.

The Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek starts in Syabrubesi and ends at the Melamchi Bazaar. From Syabrubesi, you follow the Langtang River to the east until you reach Kyanjin Gompa. There is a small Buddhist monastery in Kyanjin Gompa and a cheese factory started by the Swiss Association in 1955. The highest point of this trek is Ganjala Pass (5,130m). As you cross the pass, there are spectacular views of Langtang Lirung and the Tibetan Peak. This trek also offers the opportunity to climb small peaks and visit glaciers at a comfortably low elevation.

Observe the culture, traditions, and lifestyle of Langtang

For three days, there is no lodge and no settlement along the way. So you have to make good arrangements for adequate food and accommodation. The people of this region follow Buddhism, so you will find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. In these places inhabited by the Tamang and Helambo ethnic groups, you can observe their culture, traditions, traditional dress, and rural lifestyle. The Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek Trail takes you along the lush valleys, evergreen forests, waterfalls, rhododendron jungles, the best mountain views, and the remarkable valleys of Langtang and Helambu.

The people who live in the high mountainous area of Langtang are Nepalese, but because of their descendants of Tibetan origin, they still look like Tibetans. Towards the end of the journey, before returning to Kathmandu, you will travel through some nice rice terraces and many magnificent Buddhist monasteries around the picturesque villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang. Some wildlife, such as Himalayan black bears, mountain goats, Himalayan tahr, and Rhesus monkeys, are seen in this area. If you are fit enough and have an adventurous spirit, you will enjoy this trek.

Thank you a lot for your organization about my trek. It was a superb experience; all was perfect. Karma is a very nice person and a good guide. I appreciated trekking with Odyssey (a reliable Nepal trek operator). If I come back to Nepal, I will be happy to ask you to trek with me again. I am thinking about Annapurna or the Everest trek.

Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.

They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
