The Ganja La Pass trip offers breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks, a glimpse into Tamang and Sherpa culture, Buddhist temples, and picturesque scenery.The journey starts in Langtang National Park with a hike to Kyanjin Gompa and the well-known Langtang valley. The breathtaking mountain peaks, such as Langtang Lirung 7,234 m/23,734 ft, Langtang Ri 7,205 m/23,638 ft, Langsisa Peak 6,427 m/21,086 ft, Yala Peak 5,520 m/18,110 ft, and Ganjala Peak, may be seen while you explore the Tserko-Ri.

The Ganja La pass is crossed on the way from Langtang to the Helambu area. After leaving the Langtang valley and crossing the Langtang Khola (stream), the path ascends sharply through a juniper and rhododendron forest to the Ganja La. In the moraines, the path to the Pass is very challenging. The Pass offers a breathtaking perspective of the Alps.
