Langtang Ganjala Pass trekking starts from Sybru Bensi, ends at Melamchi Pul Bazar. From Sybru Bensi, you will follow the Langtang River to the east until you get to Kyanching Gompa (3,049.). Some 5 km to the south of Kyanching Gompa are the peaks of Naya Kanga (5,846m) and, to the south east, Ponggen Dopku (5,930m). Kyanching Gompa is surrounded by Mt Langtang Lirung (7245m ) on the west, Yala peak on the north , Dorje Lakpa(6966m), Urkeinmang(6387m), Loenpo Gang (6979) and Kangchenpo on the north-east. In Kyanjing Gompa there are a small Buddhist monastary and a cheese factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance. When you are crossing the pass there are spectacular views of Langtang Lirung and the Tibetan peaks beyond. Much of this route is spent above 3,000m (10,000ft) .The highest point of this Langtang Ganjala pass trekking, is Ganjala Pass (5,122m). On the very pass of Ganjala, the last few 100m trail is precarious so we use a rope there for safety, though the utmost care is enough. The descent from the pass is on a steep slope for over 1 km, which requires good care again. However, the rest of the trail is easy and comfortable. As there are no lodges and no settlements for three days along the way, the group should be well equipped with enough food.
Ganjala Pass Trekking, Only organised camping treks are possible for this region. The use of firewood is also prohibited within the park, so all supplies should be taken with us. Langtang Ganjala pass trekking requires 12 days .The people living in Langtang are of Tibetan origin, though they introduce themselves as Tamang or Gurung. After passing the Ganjala Pass, the trail takes, you to Malemchigaon and Tarke Ghyang .People here call themselves Sherpas but their relationship with the Sherpa of Solu Khumbu is distant. The dialects spoken are also different. People here follow the Buddhist religion so you will find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Tarke Ghyang is another Sherpa town along the way, which bears its own story. The town name means temple of "100 horses" and was taken from the name of a temple established in 1727 by a Lama (Buddhist monk) who was called on by the king of Kathmandu (Kantipur) to stop an epidemic. As his reward, the Lama asked for 100 horses, which he brought here. The local temple, rebuilt in 1969, follows the Bhutanese style.
From Langtang village, Langtang Ganjala pass trekking continues to Kyangjin Gompa (3,740 m). This is the site of the Yala Cheese Factory. There is a STOL airstrip at Chhaldang, a short distance east of Kyangjin. Visiting to the Yala Cheese Factory (4.633 m) and the small lakes beyond Yala are worthwhile. Yala can be reached within half a day from Kyangjin Gompa.From Kyangjin Gompa, a continuation to the pastures of Langsisa (4.084 m) provides the good views of numerous glaciers. There are some huts in Langsisa that can be reached within one day's walk from Kyangjin Gompa. Either choosing the Lansisa glacier we can climb up to Tserku-Ri to get amazing mountain view from top of the Tserku-Ri. Next day continue our trekking, get ahead of the Ganjala pass adventure.
