opportunity to explore Tibetan villages, Tamang Villages, to climb small peaks and to visit glaciers at
comfortably low elevations. Kyanjin Gompa is a last Tibetan village in the valley, from where a trek startsto Helambu over Ganja La Pass (5,200 m). The pass itself is not easy. During autumn and spring the passopens for trekkers.
