Overview

(Note: Following reconstruction of lodges and trails that had been damaged by the 2015 earthquake, Langtang Valley has been opened again for trekking.)

Langtang Valley trekking with Ganja La pass is one of the most challenging and prized treks in the heart of the Himalaya. It is a unique combination of spectacular mountains, glacial valleys & high passes, Buddhist gompas, Tamang and Tibetan culture and flourishing wildlife.

The Langtang Valley trekking with Ganja La pass covers both Langtang and Helambu valleys. You will come across plenty of viewpoints along the trek for capturing magical views of Langtang Himalaya. The goal of the Langtang Valley trekking is to reach Kyanjin Gompa which is located on the foot of Langtang Lirung (7227m) at an altitude of 3780m. Kyanjin Gompa is the highest monastery in Nepal guarded by a monk. Also hike to Kyanjin Ri (4600m) for even more majestic views of Langtang ranges such as Langtang Lirung, Changbu and Langtang Yubra.

Another attraction of Langtang Valley trekking is the crossing of Ganja La pass on your return route. Standing at 5106m, Ganja La pass affords exceptional and outstanding views of Langtang Lirung as well as Mt. Shisha Pangma (8013m) in Tibet.

Langtang Valley lies within the boundary of Langtang National Park which is the second oldest protected area in Nepal. So enjoy walking through Rhododendron, pine and bamboo forest, which is home to many endangered species such as Red Panda, Musk Deer, Snow Leopard, Pangolin.

The best period to do Langtang Valley trekking with Ganja La pass is either during Spring or Autumn. The section in Ganja La is more prone to snowfall and avalanches in winter. A good knowledge of the geography and basic skills in mountaineering and glacier walking is a must for Langtang Valley trekking.

Before you go

Trekking Group

For the popular Langtang Valley Trekking, there will be a license holder trekking guide and Porters for carrying luggage (2 trekkers = 1 porter). This arrangement ensures that if anyone in the group is sick the trip can still go on as planned. However, Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks can run this trek for groups of any size. Usually, we have found that the maximum number of trekkers in any group is 12 people.

Accommodations

All accommodations for the Langtang Valley Trekking are on a twin-sharing basis. The lodges and tea houses have been selected by Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks after personal inspection. We look at the conditions of the inns, local hygiene, quality of food, type of service and more.

We offer two types of accommodations on this trek. In Kathmandu you will stay two nights at a Deluxe Hotel on a Bed & Breakfast basis. You will spend nine nights in standard tea houses during the trek. These places have pleasant, unheated rooms and wooden beds with foam mattresses.

All rooms are double occupancy, but you can request a single occupancy room for an additional fee, which will be available only during the trekking. However, sometimes single rooms are not available in some places, depending upon local conditions. We do work to provide the best possible options when trekking in the High Himalayas.

Meals

Food will vary between typical Nepali in the mountains. In Kathmandu, there are far more choices, which include Indian, Continental, Italian, Tibetan and more. The city areas offer everything from good steaks and burgers to apple pie and pizza.
Nepali food is nutritious, and ranges from our traditional Daal/Bhat and Momo to fantastic breads, fruits and more. The cooking is wholesome and the food is tasty during the trek trail too.
