Lantang Ganja-La pass Trek begins from Syabru Bensi, which is northwest from Kathmandu 120km drive from Kathmandu. Syabru Bensi the trekking trail follows through alpine forests, rich flora and fauna and high altitude Step up and Down a little Plateau up to the Langtang valley.

This pass to the north, offers panoramic view of Langtang Lirung and the snow peaks in Tibet side including Shisha Pangma at 8,013m.On a clear day you can also view other Magnificent hills and mountains to the south and towards west of the pass Naya Kanga 5,846m, previously named Ganja-La Chuli. The pass the trail descends through steep and dangerous loose screen slope for about 200m before emerging onto a snow slope. Somehow, the descent from Ganja La pass, like most mountain descents, seems more treacherous than the ascent. Which direction one uses to cross the pass Ganja-La, The trekking trail descends through the basin along a distinct path, marked seldom by rock Cairns towards a small stream at 4,400m as we move further pass through a waterfall towards a beautiful Helambu Valley.

Stay Safe

  • Altitude Sickness: The main and common risk while trekking above about 2500m is Altitude sickness. Altitude sickness is caused by acute exposure to low partial pressure of oxygen at high altitude. The available amount of oxygen to sustain mental and physical alertness decreases with altitude. Available oxygen drops as the air density itself, the number of molecules (of both oxygen and nitrogen) per given volume, drops as altitude increases. So don’t ignore, if you have any symptoms then descending to a lower altitude is the only option.
  • Water: Have some means to purify water, iodine or a fine ceramic filter are the best options. The streams should be considered polluted and whilst bottled water is often available, the disposal of plastic bottles is a problem.

Electricity in Nepal

Nepal is a developing country, Outside of major cities area electricity on trekking can be scares. You should have to pay 100-800 NRs per hour to charge goods on many lodges and also many tea-house treks, including in Annapurna base camp trek, Everest Base camp trek and many others treks also. Chargers often won't work on low power solar systems you find right up in the mountains so u can buy alternative bayonet light to electricity power plug converter, which will only works in low voltage is highlow. The standard Nepalese electrical outlet is a three-pronged triangle so bring three-pronged triangle chargers.

It is possible to trek in places like the Everest region during the winter but due to extreme cold weather and heavy snow fall it may be quite difficult than as usual.
April to June (summer): In these months it is quite warm and dry weather. There is an abundance of blooming flowers in the Himalayas at this time, with rhododendrons, in particular, adding a splash of color to the landscape. This season is the best time to undertake mountain expeditions.
June to September (Monsoon): There will be heavy monsoonal rainfall in this season. Rains are generally lighter in high Himalayan reasons. In this season the mountain ranges are not often visible due to the clouds.
