Langtang Valley Ganja La Pass Trek is a sublime journey that undertakes the flamboyant mountain peaks, delightfully gorgeous landscapes, and rich Tamang culture.

Also, the wild forests with the variety of flora and fauna welcome your visit to Langtang with grace and finesse. Overall, the journey yields a memory worthy of a life-long reminiscence.
The 14-days trek starts with a drive from Kathmandu to Sybrubensi. Syabru Besi is a hub for trade and business where you can shop trekking accessories.

The trail also passes through the Langtang National Park, giving justice to its rich biodiversity. The cultural side of Langtang Valley trek is as interesting as the natural ones. The inhabitants are mainly Tamang, Sherpa, and Gurung. Observing their lifestyle, food, cultures, and traditions is a great way to learn about new cultures. The area is highly influenced by Buddhism, we will come across many Chortens, Gumba, Mani walls, and prayer flags. The Kyangin Gompa is a beautiful monastery situated at 3830 m.
