Langtang Ganja La Pass Trekking

Langtang Ganja La Pass Trekking, Langtang Ganjala Pass Trek

This trek starts from Sybru Bensi and ends at Melamchi Pul Bazar. From Sybru Bensi, you trek up the Langtang River to the east until you get to Kyanjing Gompa (3,049.). At Kyanjing Gompa there is a small Buddhist monastery and a cheese factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance. This trek takes you over the Ganjala Pass (5,122m)  the last few 100m trails are precarious and tough going and a rope is needed for safety. At the top of the pass you are rewarded by a spectacular view of Langtang Lirung and the mountains of Tibet.The descent from the pass is a long steep slope for over 1 km before evening out and becoming a lot easier. As there are no lodges and no settlements for three days along the way the group needs to be well equipped with tents and an adequate food supply and you must be a member of an organised group. The use of firewood is also prohibited within the park so all supplies and kersosene need to be taken in.
Langtang ganja La PassAfter passing the Ganjala Pass, the trail descends to Malemchi gaon and Tarke Ghyang in the Helambu region. People here call themselves Sherpas but their relationship with the Sherpas of Solu Khumbu is a distant one and the dialects spoken are also different. Inhabitants here follow the Buddhist relgion and there are 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 back to Tarke Ghyang. The local temple was rebuilt in 1969 and it strictly follows the Bhutanese style of temple construction.
