Gonja La Pass
Explore the upper reaches of the sparkling Langtang Valley. The challenging crossing of the thrilling Ganja La Pass through isolated Sherpa and Tamang villages in the pleasant Helambu region. The Langtang area is closer to Kathmandu and a small populated than other trekking destinations in Nepal. I take you to the Langtang Valley that lies just south of the Tibetan Border. Your trek begins from the village of Dunche, walking on the open and lush valley. Nepal's national flower, the Rhododendron amazing with the background of snow-capped mountains and photo opportunity on this trek are endless. You will see and hear a huge number of birds and might be able to spot other wildlife such as Wild Boar and Languor monkey. As you move up the valley you will notice the Tibetan influence in the villages and lifestyle of the people. The climb up to Tserko RI (4,984m) is a challenging climb, however it offers some of the most amazing Himalayan views and the mountain passes are intense, which is a specific highlight of the trip! Another alternative is to assume a shorter walk up to Kyanjin Ri or walk further up the valley. The pristine Gompa at Kyanjin is set in middle of the Himalayas and the views from all instructions are extraordinary. Our relaxed itinerary allows for two days at Kyanjin where we you are able to acclimatize yourselves to higher altitudes as you trek up to Langshisha Kharka for a sight of Tillman's Col and the peaks close to the Tibetan Boarder. You might also be able to climb Tserko RI a comparatively easy trekking which offers unrivalled views of the high summits. After Kyanjin Gompa you will spend the next few days trekking over the wonderful Ganja La (5400m. /17712ft), a challenging pass located on the edge of the Naya Kang (5846m. /19175ft) where high camp is locate up on lush pasture at the foot of the pass before you make the crossing. The last few meters of ascent to the prayer flags on the pass necessitate an unassuming amount of scrambles, although it is not difficult at any point. Wonderful views of the Ganesh and Jugal Himal peaks greet you as you cross to the pleasant Helambu region.
