About Naya Kanga Peak Climbing

Naya Kanga Peak, 5844m, also known as Ganja La Chuli, is a trekking peak in the less famous but totally amazing Langtang region of Nepal. Naya Kanga Peak is one of the safest peaks for novice climbers to develop their climbing skills with our experienced climbing guides. The climb to the awesome ridged peak of Naya Kanga is graded ‘slightly difficult’ due to substantial snow slopes which provide the challenges of a classic alpine attempt. 

Naya Kanga is the shortest peak expedition in Nepal; it only takes 16 Days and is therefore the least expensive peak to climb. Naya Kanga Peak is located in the southern range of the beautiful Langtang Valley, inside the second largest national park in Nepal, and just north of Kathmandu.The Langtang Valley stretches up to the Tibet border, so it’s not surprising the culture here is strongly influenced by Tibetan ancestry and geographical proximity. Langtang valley is framed on the north, by peaks of about 6500m, and to the south, lower range of 5-6000m.  Naya Kanga falls in the southern range.

From the summit of Naya Kanga Peak you are surrounded by countless majestic mountains in Nepal and Tibet. Looking north you can see almost all the peaks of the Lantang massive including Langtang II, 6596m, and Lirung, 7246m; to the north-east we see Shisapangma, 8035m, Tibet's only eight thousand meter peak, Ganchenpo, 6387m, Langshisa Ri, 6370m, and Pemthang Karpo Ri, 6830m; to the east is the nearby Ganja La, 5122m.

Naya Kanga Peak Trekking trail starts at Syabrubesi, 1505m, a spectacular 9 hour drive away from Kathmandu. The trail follows the Langtang valley. The lower valley’s sub-tropical forests are a mixed of rhododendron, fir, blue pine and birch, inhabited by wildlife such as leopard, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, rhesus and languor monkeys and the endangered red panda. As the elevation increases, the trees thin and the valley widens out for amazing views.Chortens line the path to Kyanjing Gompa 3970m, the site of an ancient Buddist monastery. There are two peaks near Kyanjing that are ideal for acclimatization. We will climb Kyangjin Ri, 4350m, or Tsergo Ri, 4983m, depending on our energy levels, and enjoy more fantastic views.    

From Kyangjin Gompa the trail to Naya Kanga Peak goes south to Nyengang Kharka, 4300m, where we set up base camp.The ascent to the summit is made from the north-east face.The summit bid starts from high camp, 4950m. The snow and ice slopes get as steep as 50° below the summit ridge. After celebrating our achievement on the summit, we make our descent back to base camp.

The best season for Naya Kanga Peak Climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around. The duration of the trip can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition will arrange every details of your Naya Kanga Peak Expedition; lodge accommodation, guides, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment.
