The Pangsang La trek can be done in either direction, starting in Gorkha or Syabrubesi. Your trek through Ganesh Himal passes though yet unexplored valleys, pine forests and a number of passes. One of the main attractions in the area is the Tamang villages. En route you cross Magne Goth pass (2936m), trek through the villages of Lapa Gaon, Shertang and Tipling, then cross the Pangsang La (3850m) to reach Somdang and Gatlang. There are views of Ganesh Himal II, IV, and V, Langtang Lirung (7225m) and Paldor, among others. This trek offers a really superb opportunity to enjoy magnificent views of a large number of Himalayan peaks, as well as seeing a variety of flora and fauna, observing Nepalese cultural traditions from the close quarters and intermingling with the local people. This trek is ideal for those who want to observe yet-unspoiled Tamang culture, spectacular views of mountains and colourful rhododendron forest.
You can also visit the historic town and palace of Gorkha, the birthplace of King Prithvi Narayan Shah, who unified several small states and principalities that were scattered across the country to form the present state of Nepal. Gorkha is a 6hr drive from Kathmandu.
