Ganja La Pass Trek |Trekking in Nepal -Royal Mountain Travel - Nepal

Ganja La Pass Trek – 12 days

The Langtang valley lies just north of Kathmandu and was designated Nepal’s National park in 1971. Trekking here offers the opportunity to explore Tamang villages, to climb small peaks and to see glaciers at a comfortably low elevation. Much of the route is through semi-tropical forests where moss covers the ground and lush fern and orchids cling to tree trunks. During the full moon in August, the sacred lake of Gosainkunda is the goal of thousands of Hindu and Buddhist pilgrims.

Some people have the idea that trekking is all sweat and hard work with no fun. This is far from the truth. Days are designed to be challenging, but not exhausting. When you choose the Ganja La Pass Trek, days begin with breakfast at the tea house you stay.  You will need to pack up your duffle bags before breakfast, as porters will set off early. To cover the magnificent sun rays that strike on the mountains, you will be on the trail by around 8 am. A lunch stop for a leisurely lunch will be around noon. Lunch usually takes about 2 hours, allowing plenty of time to explore the village or relax. The afternoon walk is shorter and you usually arrive around 4pm leaving time for excursions to nearby sites, nunneries, exploration of the village or simply relaxing with a book and catching up on your diary. Dinner is generally around 7pm.
