Langtang Valley Fixed Departure Trekking
Langtang Valley Fixed Departure Trekking A nice trek through the Langtang National Park to Kyangin and cross over the beautiful Ganja La Pass. Visit and experience Sherpa & Tamang villages after go by. Explore the upper reaches of the scintillating Langtang Valley. To cross from Langtang into Helambu, via the Ganja La pass, is serious undertaking requiring good equipment.

In the distance you can see Shishapangma, the only 800 meters peak entirely in China (Tibet). After crossing the pass we reach to Tarkeghayang (largest settlements of Tamang in Helambu) The trek passes through some beautiful forests and very interesting villages on route.
