Ganja La Langtang Trekking

Langtang Valley

The Ganja La trek is a popular trekking route in the Langtang area.

It offers an opportunity to explore Tibetan and Tamang villages and offers panoramic views of the Langtang Lirung, the Ganesh Himal and many other peaks.

To cross the Ganja La pass into Helambu valley is a serious undertaking requiring good equipment and an experienced guide. Crossing the pass may require the use of technical climbing equipment, which makes this trek one of the challenging routes in Nepal.
