Trekkers may have views across the valley to the peaks of the Langtang range are particularly good as far as see the Shisapangma from the pass. The crossing of the pass requires the use of technical climbing equipment and trekkers must be skilled in the use of this and be prepared. For those who are able to complete the crossing the rewards are some of the best mountain landscapes to be found anywhere in Nepal. The Ganja La pass situated at 5160m is one of the most challenging passes in Nepal. The Langtang trek takes you over this pass as you make your way south from Langtang village, which lies at 3500m & is the headquarter for Langtang National Park. The route from Gyang in Helambu, requires crossing the 5120 m Ganja La. The pass is often blocked by snow, so inquiries about local condition, good equipment & mountaineering experience are necessary for a safe crossing.
