Langtang Ganjala Pass Trekking

ganja-la-pass-trekkingLangtang Ganjala Pass Trekking begins at Dhunche and ends at Melamchi Pul Bazaar. We construct our way following the Langtang River to the east until we reach to Kyanjin Gompa (3840m). Kyanjin Gompa is surrounded by Langtang Lirung (7245m) to the west, Yala Peak (5550m) to the north, Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Urkeinmang (6387m), Loenpo Gang (6979m) and Kangchenpo (6720m) in the northeast. There is a small Buddhist monastery and a cheese factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance in Kyanjin Gompa. A spectacular view of Langtang Lirung can be achieved during the pass across. The highest point of this trek is Ganja La Pass (5106m). On the very pass of Ganja La, the last few 100m of the trail is precarious, so we use a rope for safety and the utmost care is necessary. Ganja La pass trekking is one of the adventure pass (5106m) but spectacular sceneries from top of pass mountain views and green views. It gives so adventure pass did it. Langtang Ganjala Pass Trekking is a beautiful trekking pass walking alone the Langtang valley trek cross the Ganjala Pass then ending through the Helambu trek.

Langtang Ganjala Pass Trekking is In the Langtang region, the people from Tibetan origin are living, but they introduce themselves as Tamang or Gurung. Leaving the Ganja La Pass, the trail takes you to Melanchigaon and Tarkeghyang. We meet Sherpa people here, but they have got a different relationship with those people from the Solu Khumbu. The dialects spoken are also different, but they also follow the Buddhist religion so we find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Along the way, we meet another Sherpa town called Tarkeghyang, which bears its own story. Tarkeghyang means “100 horses” and was taken from the name of a temple established in 1727 by a Lama (Buddhist monk) who was called on by the king of Kathmandu (Kantipur) to stop an epidemic. The Lama asked for 100 horses, which he brought here, as a reward. The local temple that was rebuilt in 1969 is designed in the Bhutanese style.
