North of Kathmandu, near the Tibetan Border, lies the Langtang region. It features both a narrow valley below the Himalayas to the north with a lower range of snow-capped mountains in the South. A visit to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore Tibetan and Tamang Villages, to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers at comfortably low elevations. The forest in this region have temperate and sub- alpine vegetation. Wildlife includes migratory birds, deer, monkeys, Thar, and Pika. The scenery here is spectacular and the trek is more adventurous. Kyanjin Gompa is a last Tibetan Village in the valley, from where a trek starts to Helambu over Ganja La Pass (5200m). During autumn and spring, the pass opens for trekkers; the pass itself is not easy.
The route from Kyanjin Gompa in Langtang to Tarke Gyang in Helambu crossing 5106m begins Ganja La Pass trekking. Crossing the Langtang Khola below KyanjinGompa, the trail makes a steep climb along the ridge on the south side of the valley through a forest of rhododendron and juniper. Ganja La trail continues south, following streams and moraines and climbing steeply towards the pass. The views to the north from the pass, of Langtang Lirung and the snow peaks in Tibet, including Shisha Pangma at 8013m, are outstanding. On the clear day you can see the views of many ranges to the south. West of the pass is 5846m Naya Kangri named as Ganja La Chuli. It is one of the trekking peaks and you can climb with a permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association.
Teahouse facilities are not available in Ganja La region, hence trekking should be fully supported and self – sufficient to meet all circumstances that may arise.
