Naya Kanga Peak Climbing
Naya Kanga Peak Climbing – A Great Climbing on Snow Slopes with Spectacular Views of Langtang Himalayan Range & Tibet
Naya Kanga Peak climbing is famed for fabulous climbing in Langtang region. In fact, climbing Naya Kanga peak is relatively difficult although the height of the peak is less than 6000m. The region is prone to heavy snow falls, specially in the spring season making Naya Kanaga peak climbing more challenging.
The peak is also known as Ganjala Chuli. Langtang region has been popular for trekking as well as climbing lately. The presence of several peaks less than 5500m. near Kyanjing offers several opportunities for climbing and acclimatization. Most of these peaks do not require official permit for climbing. The summit of these smaller peaks and hills provide spectacular views of several peaks in Langtang region and proper acclimatization for Naya Kanga peak climbing.
Naya Kanga peak climbing begins with the scenic driving from Kathmandu to Syabrubensi. We trek to Kyanjing and hike to small hills or climb small peaks for acclimatization. Trekking itself is quite rewarding in Langtang region as the region offers the experience of trekking in Tibet. We get the first hand experience of Tamang and Sherpa culture similar to Tibetans. It is because the inhabitants of Langtang region are the descendants from Tibet.
Naya Kanga Peak Climbing Route Details
After proper acclimatization in Kyanjing, we proceed to the base camp for Naya Kanga peak climbing. The trekking route to the base camp after Kyanjing is mostly in the shadow of the mountains. Mostly the trail is covered with snow in the spring season and any fresh snow easily makes the trail more challenging. It is an interesting peak west of a high pass, Ganja La ( 5122m.). We ascend to the pass which offers the magnificent views of mountains in Nepal and Tibet. To name some of them are Langtang Lirung, Pemthang Kapro Ri, Langtang II, Langshisa Ri, Pemthang Ri and Shisapangma.
For Naya Kanga peak climbing, we set up the camp at Naya Kangada. We climb Naya Kanga peak through North-East Ridge. We cross glacier and then couloirs to reach the base of the ridge. We turn to the left and climb on the face which is the main technical section of Naya Kanga peak climbing and reach the summit. The best time for Naya Kanga peak climbing will be from September – November.
