Langtang Ganjala Pass (5,130 m) Trek starts from Syabru Bensi, ends at Melamchi Pul Bazar. From Sybru Bensi, you will follow the Langtang river to the east until you get to Kyanching Gompa (3,049 m). Some 5 km to the south of Kyanching Gompa are the peaks of Naya Kanga (5,846 m) and, to the southeast, Ponggen Dopku (5,930m). Kyanching Gompa is surrounded by Mt Langtang Lirung (7,245 m ) on the west, Yala peak on the north, Dorje Lakpa(6,966 m), Urkeinmang(6,387 m), Loenpo Gang (6,979 m) and Kangchenpo on the north-east. In Kyanjing Gompa there are a small Buddhist monastery and a cheese factory started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance. When you are crossing the pass there are spectacular views of Langtang Lirung and the Tibetan peaks beyond. Much of this route is spent above 3,000m (10,000ft). The highest point of this trek is Ganjala Pass (5,122m ). On the very pass of Ganjala, the last few 100m trails are precarious so we use a rope there for safety, though the utmost care is enough.
The descent from the pass is on a steep slope for over 1 km which requires good care again. But the rest of the trail is easy and comfortable. As there are no lodges and no settlements for three days along the way, the group should be well equipped with enough food.
We will travel towards Dhunche by jeep which will take 7 hours to reach there. We will take rest and stay overnight in a hotel.

Ngegang to Keldang is quite challenging and thrilling part of the trip as we are required to walk through the icy and slippery path. We will climb up to cross the Ganja La Pass which has been always always covered by snow then descend to Keldang Village.
