Trip Information

The adventurous Ganja-La Pass and Naya Kanga Trek is one of the most famous trekking routes in the Langtang region. Trekking in the cultural and traditional Langtang valley is really amazing, which is fused with century-old Buddhist monasteries, Chortens, various religious monuments and shrines. The magnificent beautiful Himalayas, isolating the Langtang settlements and visiting the Tamang people and their warm and welcoming hospitality is really rewarding. The Langtang Ganja-La Pass and Naya Kanga trek offers us magnificent views of the mountains such as; the Naya Kanga Peak (5,846m) and Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Urkeinmang (6387m), Loenpo Gang (6979) and Kangchenpo on the north-east, to the south-east, Ponggen Dopku (5,930m). A highlight of this trek is Kyanjing Gompa is surrounded by the Mt Langtang Lirung (7245m) on the west and the Yala peak on the north. Apart from this splendid mountains views, the quite challenging trail of the Langtang Ganja- La Pass and Naya Kanga trek also offers us to encounter with various rare wildlife such as; the Red Panda, Black Bear, Snow leopard, Musk Deer, Tahr, Ghoral, common langur and many more.

The Ganja-La Pass and Naya Kanga trek is one of the best destinations to experience a thrilling wilderness adventure. This classical Langtang trek begins from Sybrubesi, a day drive from the Kathmandu Valley. We will follow the routes towards the Lama Hotel and to the Kyanjin Gompa. Although the trekking route can be quite tough and challenging, we need to know about basic knowledge of mountaineering and climbing equipment. Trekking through the high alpine pasture with the spectacular close mountain views surrounding with a glacier of Langtang Lirung (7246m), Langshisha Ri (6370m) with breath-stopping views of Ganesh Himal, Kimshung (6781m), Dorje Lakpa, Gaurishanker, Yala peak, Naya Kanga, and many more are surely unimaginable.

Exploring the splendid Ganjala Pass 5106m and getting chances to witness some yak and goat that are grazing in the grass field with the splendid views of Langtang Lirung, Shishapangma (8013m) in Tibet from the top of the pass is really outstanding. Helambu, known as ‘Yolmo Heritage’, where we get an opportunity to explore these beautiful villages such as; Malemchi Gaun, Tarke Ghyang and observe the local people’s way of life.

  14. What is the weather and temperature like in trekking?

    One of the most unpredictable elements of the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri region is the weather. If you’re not properly prepared for the twists, turns and volatility of the conditions that can occur in this breathtaking region, you might find yourself in an uncomfortable and unpleasant situation. Here are some weather basics to help ensure that you come to the Himalayas as well equipped and prepared to face anything. Generally speaking, the nights are much cooler than the daytime hours in the Himalayan region. Many first-time trekkers are surprised to learn about the incredible range that may occur in a given day. During the day, the thermometer could reach temps as high as 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), only to dip down as low as -20 degrees C (-4 Degrees F) in less than 24 hours. While there’s no way to know exactly what each day in the mountains will bring, the weather and temperature ranges tend to be somewhat predictable based on the month and season.

    Spring – March / April / May / June
    Spring happens to be one of the best times of the year to visit the Everest, Annapurna, Langtang, Manaslu,Kanchenjunga, Dhaulagiri region, although because of this, it can become somewhat crowded. One can meet many other Everest climbers during this season and base camp is full of tents. The beautiful clear blue sky can be seen and the many different species of flower are visible in the lower altitude. During springtime, the average temperature is 20 degrees C (68 Degrees F), with a maximum of 25 degrees C (77 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -15 degrees C (5 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

    July / August Through Mid-September is Monsoon Season
    This season is not really recommended to travel as it rains in the lower altitudes, below 3500 meters. In areas above 4000 meters, it rains sometimes and although it is also sometimes dry, very few people travel during this season. There are positive sides of trekking during the monsoon months as the excess rainfall can provide ample chance to see spectacular views of the waterfall and it’s also the best season to avoid the crowds. During springtime, the average temperature is 22 degrees C (71.6 Degrees F), with a maximum of 30 degrees C (86 Degrees F), during sunny days and a minimum of -5 degrees C (23 Degrees F), in the morning and at night for areas above 4000 meters.

    Autumn – End of September / October / November
