Ganja La Pass Trek
This trek begins with an overland journey to Syabrubesi. Then the trek to Ganja La Pass starts passing through a beautiful alpine valley to Kyangjin Gompa. Here we spend two days to explore the glaciers of the high valley and visit the monastery. These days we acclimatize and prepare for the Ganja La Pass, which is not easy and can be difficult if the weather conditions get bad to worse.

This trek begins with an overland journey to Syabrubesi. Then the trek to Ganja La Pass starts passing through a beautiful alpine valley to Kyangjin Gompa. Here we spend two days to explore the glaciers of the high valley and visit the monastery. These days we acclimatize and prepare for the Ganja La Pass, which is not easy and can be difficult if the weather conditions get bad to worse. After crossing the pass we make our journey back to Kathmandu via the beautiful and scenic Helambu region.
Helambu is inhabited by the Helambu Sherpas where we visit typical Sherpa villages to experience their way of life and culture. A trek in this region offers the opportunity to view traditional village life amid a picturesque alpine wilderness and affords brilliant views of the mighty peaks of Langtang (7234m), Himal chuli (7893m) Manaslu (8156mm), Ganesh (7446m) and Annapurna range as well as a sprawl of endless 6000 m+ summits.
