An energetic and rewarding itinerary for those wanting something unique and challenging.

This incredible walk in the mountain wilderness takes us to one of the most challenging passes, Ganja La (5,106m), which links Langtang Valley with Helambu, situated directly north of Kathmandu on the border with Tibet. The walk-in is picturesque, with untouched forests and abundant flora and fauna. We exit the valley over the spectacular and little-used GanjaLa before descending into Helambu and then the outskirts of Kathmandu.
