Ganjala Pass Trekking starts walk from Syaprubesi and in the ends at Melamchi Bazar. Kathmandu to Syaprubesi by drive 6 to 9 hours but it depend of traffic on the way. Next day follow river to the east until you get to Kyanjing Gompa (3700). South of Kyanjing Gompa are the peaks of Naya Kanga (5844m.) and Ponggen Dopku (5930m.). Kyanching Gompa is surrounded by Langtang Lirung (7225m ) on the west, Yala peak (5500m.) on the north and Kangchhenpo (6387m.) on the north east. In Kyanjing Gompa there are a small Buddhist monastary and a cheese factory where you can buy cheese started in 1955 by the Swiss Association for Technical Assistance and a days run by government of Nepal. When you are crossing the pass there are spectacular views of Langtang Lirung mountain actually from Langtang village to till Kyanjing Gompa but view different part of same mountain. The maximum altitude of trek is Ganjala Pass (5130m ). The last few 110 meters Ganjala trail is tricky if there is snow so we use a rope there for safety in that moment, though the extreme care is sufficient. Descent from the pass is on a steep slope for over 1 km maybe more it depend of trail slippery or not which require good care again rest of the trail is not that much tricky. As there are not lodges only overnight tent camp for 3 days, when you are in Tarkeghyang (2740m.) we use lodge instate tent camp & continue same till Melamche Bazar (870m.).
