Trip Introduction:

Langtang Valley Trek with Ganja La Pass is a unique adventure option of trekking inside one of the nearest national park from capital city Kathmandu – Langtang National Park.  The trek is suitable for those trekkers who want to extend more days in Langtang route including more adventurous and difficult, less explored mountain pass of Ganja La at 5,122 meters. The pass is technical there might need to use climbing equipment as well. Thus we prefer to do this trek for those who have good level of physical fitness and previous experience of short hikes and treks. Langtang Valley Trek with Ganja La Pass leads through varieties of rhododendron forests, bamboo forests, great waterfalls and majestic Himalayan corner. Langtang valley is very popular and highly explored by many trekkers throughout the season.
