Langtang is a narrow valley that lies just below the main Himalayan range to the north Tibet Border and a slightly lower range of snowy peaks to the south. A visit to the Langtang valley offers an opportunity to explore Tibetan villages, Tamang Villages, to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers at comfortably low elevations.

Kyanjin Gompa is a last Tibetan Village in the valley, from where a trek starts to Helambu over Ganja La Pass (5,200m). The pass itself is not easy, during autumn and spring the pass opens for trekkers. A trek Over Ganja la pass offers an entirely wilderness and adventure experience. If you are trekking during spring the forest on the trail is colorful and blooming full of Rhododendrons.

To cross the Ganja-La pass which is serious undertaking requiring good equipment and experience from guides. For 2 days there are no facilities and groups with their staff must be fully self-sufficient. Crossing of the pass requires the use of technical climbing equipment and trekkers must be skilled in the use of this and be prepared to assist less well-equipped porter staff. The trail follows a small valley before reaching the glaciated pass where the use of ropes, crampons and ice axes may be necessary. It depends on snow level.
