This is a strenuous trek with the highest point being the Langtang Ganja La pass trek, one of the most challenging Passes in Nepal (5,122 m). There are three possible starting points for this trek Sybru Bensi, Targeting or Kyanjin Gompa. In Kyanjin Gompa there is an Ancient Monastery and a Yak cheese factory, Targeting is quite a large Village populated by the Tamang people. There is a large monastery here where they train the Monks.
You now ascend through the beautiful, almost ethereal Rhododendron Forests into alpine Landscapes. There are no tea houses this side of the pass and so we can choose idyllic camping spots affording amazing views of the Langtang region to acclimatize.
The route from Gyang in Helambu requires the crossing of the(5,122 m)Ganja La pass. The pass is snow free for much of the year but in the winter mountaineering equipment and experience is required.
Local advice is always sought about the condition of the pass. The views from here are spectacular with a panorama that includes the Langtang Lirung and beyond into Tibet.
After a steep descent, the rest of the trail is easy and comfortable. You will trek through Helambu villages that exclude a Tibetan feel. You will see fields enclosed by stone walls as well as herds of yaks, the most important animal for the people here and many Buddhist Monuments. From Tarke Gyang, you can choose whether to descend to Melamchi Bazaar or Tharpu, from here we drive back to Kathmandu.
