Langtang and Ganjala pass (5130 m) trek is considered one of the most difficult and challenging passes a trekker would overcome and enjoy once in a lifetime. This trek encompasses a beautiful valley of Langtang with the sheer dominance of Langtang Lirung (7246m), the highest peak in the area. The valley is surrounded by many beautiful peaks and glaciers and is the closest proximity National park from Kathmandu. Langtang valley opens out beyond Ghora Tabela. The valley is full of beautiful camping sites and you will come across Tamang settlements, ancient culture and religious lifestyle. From Langtang village, the trail continues to Kyangjin Gompa (3749 m). This is the site of the Yala Cheese Factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance. Visits to the Yala Cheese Factory ( 4,633 m) and the small lakes beyond are worthwhile. Yala can be reached within half a day from Kyanjon Gompa.
The most daring and important part of the trek is the pass the very pass of Ganjala. The last few 100m trails are precarious, as the small trail becomes narrower and uneven ledges. This will require us to use a rope for safety, though utmost care is enough. The descent from the pass is on a steep slope for over 1 km which too requires good care and attention. When you are over with this then the rest of the trail is easy and comfortable.
This is a Semi Camping Trip - the first part up to Kyanji Gompa we use lodges and after Kyanjo Gompa until Melamchi, we will be staying intent, and using services of cooks and kitchen staff. If a member wants to stay at lodges after the pass at Tarkhegyang or Melamchi it can be done.
