This peak is certainly a beautiful looking mountain, worth climbing. Standing at a glorious height of 5844 Meters, Ganja La Chuli peak climbing is best suited for the beginner climbers who have trekking experience and good physical condition.
Despite its popularity, very few travelers have explored the magic of the Naya Kanga Peak. Reaching the top of Naya Kanga pEak you will be blessed with some of the most beautiful Himalayas of Langtang Lirung 7246m, Ganesh Himal 6704m, Shishapangma 8013m, Langsisa Ri 6774m, Pemthang Ri 6,836m, Pemthang Kapro Ri (6,830m), Langtang II 6,571m Yala peak 5500m, Paldor peak 5896m, Tibetan Himalayan range, along with the world most beautiful valley – Langtang valley. You will also have a chance to closely observe the culture of Rasuwa Tamang people, Tibetan monasteries and the virgin landscape. The aura of Ganja la Chuli has bewitched every traveler making them speechless and then turns you into a storyteller.
The journey to the Naya Kanga peak traverses through some of the most beautiful valleys of Langtang cherished within the beautiful young Himalayas. As your journey comes close to the base camp Naya Kanga, the trek will full you with the right amount of adventure and thrill. However, before trying summiting the peak of the Naya Kanga, it is mandatory to take some time to acclimatize to adopt the harsh topography.
As you start ascending the top of the Naya Kanga peak, the journey is beyond any words to portray. For the summit of the Naya Kanga Peak, the north-eastern ridge over the line on snow and ice is considered to be the best and adventurous. Once you arrive at the top of the summit, you can have the bird’s eye panoramic view of the Nepalese as well as Tibetan Himalayan ranges including Mt Shishapangma (8046m/26398ft) which is the highest peak in Chinese territory.
The climbing journey of Naya Kanga Peak begins with a 6 – 7 hours’ drive to Syabrubensi from the heart of the Kathmandu valley. From here, Himalayan Scenery trek leaders will lead the way through some of the most beautiful valleys of the Langtang region. As you make your way through the various small settlements of Bamboo, and other various valleys of Langtang you will have the chance to observe the pure lifestyle of Tamang and their culture. Moving further you will pass through a route of Lama Hotel, Kyanjing Gompa, Tseku Ri, Ganja La base camp and finally the day you summit the Naya Kanga Peak.
In the route to Naya Kanga Peak, camping is permitted. Camping trek is a lot more adventurous than normal trekking. However, carrying a tent and making a camp can be a hassle. Option for hotels is also available every few miles on the route, so staying at the hotels will be much cheaper than camping.
During the peak climbing, tents are required for two camps above Kyanjin. The first at Branchen / Nyengang Kharka, the second at Nyengang Phedi.
When To Climb
Climbing the Naya Kanga Peak has two popular seasons: April to May and October to November. During this time of year, the sky is clear with moderate temperatures.

Hotel and Accommodation:
Trek to the Himalayas is one of the favorite destinations for travel enthusiasts and adventure seekers all around the globe. Although the Himalayan region of Nepal is the most popular trekking destination in the world; there are a lot of things people don’t have a clue. While trekking to the high mountain region, you will not find the hotels and accommodation as you see in the city areas. The hotels and accommodation around the high Himalayan have fewer services and facilities. The hot shower may turn out to be simply a bucket of lukewarm water and the toilet may be a latrine behind the hotel. The private room can be a wooden cell with no furniture except a bed, mattress, and curtain in place of the door. So, while trekking to the mountainous region of Nepal, you need to be ready to stay in the less fancy and minimum facilitated hotels.
We provide you with the 2 to 3-star standard hotel while you are at Kathmandu (i.e. for 3 Nights). During your Langtang Valley Trekking, we provide you with the basic lodges and tea houses for your accommodation. The room of these lodges and tea houses are less fancier with just a bed, a pillow and a blanket. We put our every effort to make your trek as cozy as possible. However, you need to stay flexible in some cases. We will accommodate the groups in local lodge available each day. We send the porters ahead of us to pre-book the room for the next day (rooms cannot be pre-booked on all places).
In Kathmandu beside the 2 / 3 stars hotel, some 4 / 5 - star luxury accommodation is also available. If you want to change the accommodation plan to the luxury, please do let us know so that we can arrange and book the hotel for you for your Kathmandu stay.
Food and Beverages:
All the food and Beverages included on the package of Langtang Valley Trekking are provided by the company itself. The foods are provided in the tea houses or lodges on the trail. We will have breakfast and dinner at the lodge where we stay overnight. On the everyday trek, our guide will decide the available place and stop for lunch. We highly recommend you bring the water purification pills, to cleanse the water and drink during the trek. During the trek, there are options for buying bottled water and boiled water as well.
We at Himalayan Scenery Treks and Expedition provide all the necessary transportation facilities for your trip. We provide private vehicles for airport pick up and sightseeing tour around Kathmandu. Likewise, we provide tourist bus transportation for your trip. However, you have other options like traveling through private vehicles such as cars or van.

Guide and Porters on Trek:
We provide you with the well trained and experienced guide and porter for your trek. Our guide will assist you in every possible way to make your trips remarkable and memorable. Talking about the porter, we provide one porter for 2 trekkers each. The porters carry 20 Kg of total luggage (10 Kg form each trekker). We provide the one guide for the smaller groups and if the group size surpasses 10 individuals; we will provide the additional guide for your trip.
Personnel Expenses largely influenced upon your habit of expenditure. We provide you with all the necessary food and accommodation facilities inside the cost of your Langtang Valley Trekking. So, you only need money to pay for your drinks (alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages) and snacks while strolling on the trail. You will get a significant number of smaller shops on the trail to buy drinks and snacks. Likewise, you can also use the money to buy you souvenirs of the trip, entrance tickets, hot showers, tips and many more.

The amount you give depends on your budget and appreciation of their work.
Rescue and Evacuation:
Nepal is the country full of heart-warming natural beauty and a magnificent travel destination for the thrill and adventure seeker all around the globe. In spite of the fact that Nepal is an adventure paradise for the nature lover, thrill seeker. But in some cases, the thrilling experience comes up with a serious hazard. The most exciting, and the joyful trip may backfire on us and we may have to be the victim of nature. Not only that while trekking in the high altitude rough terrains may also occur afflictions like a sprained ankle or even broken leg, appendix ruptures, hypothermia, skin infection and respiratory infection. If any of this misfortune happens to you, then it should be treated on time. If left untreated then you may even lose your life.
