Trek Details

The trek to the famous Langtang region has never been better. Following the Ganja La pass (5,122m) we will embark on a journey filled with the beautiful Himalayas, waterfalls, Rhododendron and Bamboo forest, and the beautiful Gosaikunda Lake. Along with this natural scenery, we also have the ethnic Tamang group- as welcoming as they ever are. Langtang Ganjala pass trek is the best trek route in Langtang Region. 

More

We started our journey from Syabru Besi after a ride from Kathmandu. Thereon, we trek through the Alpine forest, through harsh steps, and down to the Langtang Valley from where the beautiful Langtang Lirung (7,234m) stands at its might. The Buddhist tradition is prevalent in this region and trekkers will also travel to Kyanjin Gompa (3,870m). Following the narrow path, among the snow-capped mountains, the trekkers will also get to change for an excursion in the famous Tserko Ri (5,033m).

Ganja La is the highest point of this trek and trekking at such height can be deadly if the body is not accustomed to the environment. Acclimatization is a must and we slowly move down to Dukpu and then to Shermanthang. Trekking down we reach Melamchi Pul and return back to Kathmandu with the beautiful memory of this trek. This journey is no joke. Trekking higher than 5,000m requires good physical stamina and fitness, prior experience is an asset that’s good to have. Although this journey is arduous, our guides here at Happyland Trek will provide you with the necessary assistance and information for the successful completion of the project.

“Experience Team ”
Me and my brother finished Langtang Ganjala Pass in good time and it was an awesome experience. It was a proper workout, especially at high altitude – we’ve done treks and mountains before but this was way more intense. It was really rough, but everyone we met on route was really friendly and our guide really put us to shame when it comes to fitness! We got so many cool photos and when we got back to Kathmandu, Happy showed us a great time to celebrate our accomplishment. That’s one more off the bucket list.

“Thanks Happyland for ‘Trekking Langtang’ ”
Even after the damages made by the earthquake, the region of Langtang remains stunning. Crossing the Tamang villages we had the pleasure to be greeted with smiles and a friendliness I will never forget. Among the many trekkers I met, all agree to the fact that they came to Nepal for the mountains, and came back or will come back for its people, who never cease to teach you the value of respect and joy, despite the difficulties. Of course the lake and the dense forests were amazing, and being with a guide made it easier, particularly for those of us who have absolutely no sense of direction.
