Langtang and Ganja-La Pass Trek

Langtang for the adventurous: High passes and trekking peaks on the Tibetan border

Langshisa KharkaThe Langtang Valley lies directly north of Kathmandu on the border with Tibet. Surrounded by high peaks, it provides magnificent mountains scenery with few of the crowds that are encountered on same trails in the Annapurna and Everest regions. The walk-in is picturesque with untouched forests and abundant flora and fauna. Then, as we approach the top end of the valley the scenery opens out to provide breathtaking views of the peaks including Langtang Lirung and Langshisa Ri. Camping beyond the last village, there is time to ascend many of the spectacular viewpoints including Yala Peak and Tsherko Ri to get even closer to the big peaks. We exit the valley over the spectacular and little used Ganja-La before descending into Helambu and then the outskirts of Kathmandu.
