Latha Bhanjyang

The sauvage road to Latha Bhanjyang

Latha Bhanjyang is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 2.112m (6,929ft) above the sea level, located in Lalitpur District in Bagmati Pradesh of Nepal.

Located on the south-east corner of the Kathmandu valley, within the Godavari Forest, the winding road to the summit is totally unpaved. 4x4 vehicle required. It may be impassable for a few days because of muddy conditions resulting from rainstorms. In some steep turns, drivers use to put stones to give grip to the wheels.

Starting from Godawari, the road to the summit is very steep. It’s 8.6km long. Over this distance the average gradient is 7,8%, hitting a 17% through some of the ramps.

Use common sense and caution when passing other vehicles. It's an extreme and tough road. Not recommended to beginner riders. Very dangerous when it rains. The road offers stunning views of Pulchoki peak.
