The Government of Nepal has announced an issue for the flight operation to Lukla. Most of the flights to Lukla will commence from Ramechhap until further notice to avoid the heavy traffic congestion in Kathmandu airport. The airport in Ramechhap is located 130km from Kathmandu (approximately 3-4 hours drive).
Begin our amazing 11-day Langtang Valley Trek with Ganja la Pass Trekking which takes you to the popular Langtang and Ganja La Pass (5122m/16,800 ft). We also make an excellent tour to Tserko Ri (5,000m/16,404 ft) which promises remarkable views of the Langtang Himalayas. The Langtang region’s charm is that it’s so close to Kathmandu and as wild as any Tibetan highlands. Langtang is also renowned for its Gosaikunda Lakes. However, lush rhododendron and bamboo forests, magnificent waterfalls and the snow-capped Himalayas make the trek one of the most diverse near Kathmandu. The people living in the Langtang region’s highlands are the Nepalis, the descendant of Tibetan descent, they also look like Tibetans.
We commence the adventure with a daily bus from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. The trek starts at Syabrubesi, passes the mighty Ganja La Pass through the Kanyanjing Gompa, and ends at Melamchi Pul Bazar in the Helambu area. You can also walk through several beautiful rice terraces and some beautiful Buddhist monasteries around the beautiful villages of Tarke Gyang and Sermathang before going back to Kathmandu.
