Naya Kanga is a popular ‘trekking peak’ which was formerly known as the Ganja La Chuli. The peak that lies west of the Ganja La is a difficult climb when compared to the other ‘trekking peaks’ in Nepal. However, amateur climbers with sound physical health can also ascend this peak.
As the peak lies very close to the Tibetan border, numerous peaks in Tibet can be seen from the summit of Naya Kanga. The Shishapangma, Langtang Lirung, Pemthang Ri, Langshisa Ri and the Pemthang Kapro ri are the magnificent peaks that can be seen once atop the Naya Kanga.
While closed to Kathmandu, Ganja La Chuli 5844m.(Naya Kanga) is the most accessible Naya Kanga our “people peaks” towering over the South of alpine Langtang valley and holy lakes of Gosaikunda. its fine ridge systems provide superb climbing and spectacular scenery from a top the summit, you can gaze in wonder at the peaks of the JugalHimal as a Dome Blanc, LangshisaRi and at Tibet’s highest Mt. Shisapangma 8035m. the last 8,000m. peak in the World to be the climbed.
We then trek through the summer settlement of YalaKhark, for an acclimatisation climb of the very easy Yala peak 18045ft. before moving onto our base camp just below the crest of the Ganja la. With successfully ascent under our belt, we return to the Langtang valley and to the sacred lakes of the Gosaikund before crossing of Lauribinayak pass to Nepal’s other Sherpa area, the Helambu valley where once again magnificent mountain views are for the taking.
