GANESH HIMAL TREK

The Langtang region offers great diversity in an area that is one of the closest trekking regions to Kathmandu.  There are several treks which provide different opportunities for eco-tourism experiences, technical climbing and mountaineering challenges, trekking to glaciers and crossing high altitude passes.  You may choose to trek through beautiful Tamang villages, seeing the rich culture and maybe learning a little about their wonderful textile heritage.

Your trek could include a visit to sacred lakes, gompas, a cheese factory or wonderful vantage points that are well worth the climb.  If time allows, shorter treks can be combined. The Langtang area provides opportunities for both teahouse trekking and camping and is a wonderful option if time is limited. Langtang  trek is one of the  most beautiful sought after trek route.It takes about 5-6 hours drive to Dhunche by local transportation.

Trek starts with a spectacular view of the Ganesh himal range as you walk trough beautiful rhododendron, pine, fir and alder trees. As you get higher up, the  landscape & vegetation will changes as you get to walk through oak and alpine rhododendron forest with a magnificent view of Langtang lerung peak and Khang chhembu mountain.

The local history is approximately 4 hundred 70 years old and the origin of the people is mainly Tibetans, who migrated over the Himalaya high pass, and settled in various mountainous regions throughout Nepal. Kyanjin Gompa is the last village in this valley. Kyanjin Monastery is pretty interesting with the magnificent view of Langtang lerung, Khang Chhembu, Dorje Lakpa, Naya khanga, Yala peak, and many more. This route follows along the Langtang river from Sherpa Gaon and  ends at Syabru Bensi.
