Naya Kanga Peak is a beginner climbing peak below 6,000 metres and is ideal for aspiring climbers.
Situated to the north of Kathmandu, Langtang valley is home to natural wonders, lakes, mountains, and more. Amidst all the luring mountains, Naya Kanga Peak, also called Ganja La Chuli, is best for climbing. At just 5,844 metres, Naya Kanga Peak climbing is people's favourite because of the magical view of the mountains from the top.
Excellent for aspiring climbers to begin their mountaineering dreams, Naya Kanga Peak is best suited for gaining climbing experience. Here, you'll get the chance to learn to walk on snow and rocky terrain, using crampons and following man rope. But, climbers consider it slightly arduous at some locations due to steep snow slopes. These slopes demand some previous climbing standards. But proper climbing training given by our guides helps you substantially to reach the summit.
The 16 days long Naya Kanga Peak Climbing is a B Grade alpine Peak by Nepal Mountaineering Association. Hence, climbing this peak won't cost you much. Throughout the Naya Kanga Peak Climbing expedition, you'll trek to the least hiked terrain yet, the fantastic landscape of Langtang National Park. Besides, the geography here with encircling mountains and fresh streams offers an excellent trekking experience. On top, the Buddhist Gompas at Kyangjin and the Tibetan-influenced culture and lifestyle here are charming.
Once we climb the summit of Naya Kanga Peak, you'll witness the heavenliness of the Langtang mountain range. All the prominent peaks of Tibet and Nepal stand tall, elegantly, in front of you. The peaks are Sisapangama at 8,035 metres, Langtang II and Langtang Lirung at 6,596 metres and 7, 246 meters. Also, to the North, Lishang, Pemthang Karpo, and Ganchenpo are completely visible. The tiring summit and Naya Kanga Peak expedition are worth it as you stand on its summit floor.
We'll begin our Naya Kanga Peak climbing and expedition with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. It takes 9 hours to reach Syabrubesi, a beautiful semi town of Langtang at 1,505 metres.
From here, we'll start our trekking to Langtang valley. The sub-tropical landscape of lower altitudes is serene to walk through. The pine, oak, birch, and vivid rhododendron make the landscape green. On top, this pristine landscape is home to the red panda, deer, Himalayan bear, and monkeys (bear and monkeys are many).
The true Himalayan beauty starts unfolding as we ascend further to Lama Hotel and Langtang valley. The broad landscape, snow-filled peaks, and flowing streams make the day hike calm. We'll have a day of acclimatisation at Kyanjin Gompa, one of the spiritual places in Langtang valley. Lush meadows and small streams are persistent throughout our hiking trail. We'll also hike to Tsergo Ri for better acclimatisation.
From here, you'll get glimpses of the snow-filled Langtang range. We'll make our way north from Kyangjin Gompa and head to Nyengang Kharka. It is the perfect place to set the tents overnight. It is the base camp of Naya Kanga Peak. While acclimating the next day, we'll also do a training session. Our climbing guide will give you the training required for the summit push.
From the base camp of Naya Kanga Peak, it will take four hours to climb to the High Camp, at 4,960 metres. We'll start the summit ascending in the early morning the next day. It would take 9 long hours to reach the summit and return to base camp safely.
We'll be climbing up via the North-East front. At some parts of the ascent below the summit, the steep slope rises to 50 degrees. The arduous climb at this ridge makes this climb difficult. But our guides will be with you for the additional climbing support.
We want every client to enjoy the trip on our Naya Kanga Peak Climbing expedition. Thus, we make fixed departures during the best time of the year.
Naya Kanga Peak is best when climbed in Spring and Autumn. The crisp weather with zero rain and utter visibility make the Langtang sightseeing inspiring. The various peaks around 7,000 metres look spectacular when filled with snow. Thus, Spring after winter snow deposition looks best. The hiking along the Langtang trek route becomes sublime when there's no rain. So, pre-monsoon and post-monsoon months in Autumn and Spring are best for Naya Kanga peak climbing in Langtang.
Further, the daytime averages around 20-25 degrees, and the nighttime temperature averages around -6 to 2 degrees. These temperatures are bearable with comfortable overnights. Also, the mild temperature becomes best for a day hike.
Naya Kanga Peak climbing is a B grade alpine peak and is ideal for aspiring climbers. The trekking route to Langtang valley and the base camp of Naya Kanga is moderate grade. But, the ridge below the summit is a 50-degree inclined wall of snow and rock. Only this is where most inexperienced climbers find it arduous to climb. But, for climbers with alpine courses and previous climbing experience, it will be a comfortable summit climb.
Don't worry! Our well-experienced Sherpa Guides and Climbing Guides will make your climb safe. They will train you in some techniques at base camp. Also, you'll become used to it as you climb to High Camp later. Also, we recommend you have some climbing experience before heading to the Naya Kanga Peak expedition.
Besides the technical part, you have to be physically fit. The 9-hour-long ascend and back to base camp develops extreme fatigue. Some days in trekking, we have to walk for long hours. Thus, do some cardio exercises and physical fitness training for endurance two months before this expedition.
