Lang tang… “The living earth”
We embark on our amazing 14-day Langtang Trek with Ganja la Pass that takes you to the famous Langtang region and the Ganja La pass(5122m). The attraction of the Langtang region is that it’s so close to Kathmandu and yet it is as wild as any Tibetan highlands. Langtang region is also famous for its Gosaikunda Lakes and Helambu. Moreover, the company of green rhododendron and bamboo forests, majestic waterfalls, and snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of most diverse treks in Nepal..
Our adventure starts with a day’s bus/Jeep ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. The trek begins from Syabrubesi, via the Kanyanjing Gompa crosses the mighty Ganja La pass, and ends at the Melamchi Pul Bazar in the Helambu region. Toward the end of the trip, you will also trek through some beautiful rice terraces and a number of splendid Buddhist monasteries around the delightful villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang before heading back to Kathmandu.
According to legend, the Lang tang valley was discovered by a Lama following runway Yak, hence the name “Lang” is Yak for Tibetan and “Tang” means to follow. Lang tang is a narrow valley, that lies just south of Tibet boarder, sandwiched between main Himalayan range to the northern and a slightly lower range of snow clad peaks to the south. People of Tibetan origin, who practice Buddhism, habituate in this high and isolated region.
