Langtang Ganjala-Pass Trekking

This Trek begins at Dhunche and ends at Melamchi Bazaar. We make our way following the Langtang River to the east until we reach to Kyanjing Gompa (3049m). Kyanjing Gompa is surrounded by Mt. Langtang Lirung (7245m) on the west, Yala peak on the north, Dorje Lakpa (6966m), Urkeinmang (6387m), Loenpo Gang (6979) and Kangchenpo on the northeast. There are a small Buddhist monastery and a cheese factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance in Kyanjing Gompa. A spectacular view of Langtang Lirung can be achieved during the pass cross. The highest point of this trek is Ganja-La Pass (5106m). On the very pass of Ganja-La, the last few 100m trail is precarious so we use a rope for safety and the utmost care is necessary.

In Langtang, the people from Tibetan origin are living, but they introduce themselves as Tamang or Gurung. Leaving the Ganja-La Pass, the trail takes you to Melamchigaon and Tarkeghyang. We meet Sherpa people here but they have got a different relationship with those of people from Solu Khumbu. The dialects spoken are also different but they also follow the Buddhist religion so we find many old Buddhist monasteries in the villages. Along the way, we meet another Sherpa town called Tarkeghyang, which bears its own story. Tarkeghyang means “100 horses” & 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. The Lama asked for 100 horses, which he brought here, as a reward The local temple that was rebuilt in 1969 is designed in the Bhutanese style
