Naya Kang Peak Climbing

At a Glance

    Embark on an exhilarating adventure with Naya Kang Peak Climbing, a truly rewarding experience amidst the majestic Himalayas. Revel in the breathtaking vistas of remote mountains, immerse yourself in the captivating Tibetan-influenced culture, and enjoy the solitude away from the crowds of climbers. The peak affords astonishing views of Langshisa Ri (6,370m), Pemthang Ri (6,836m), Shisapangma (8,099m), Langtang Lirung (7,425m), Pemthang Kapro Ri (6,830m), and Langtang II (6,836m), among other peaks.

    Although Naya Kang is not as lofty as some of Nepal's trekking peaks, its ascent is considered challenging due to the technical skills required. Climbers must be in optimal physical condition and possess a positive attitude, along with technical proficiency in using climbing gear such as ice axes, ropes, crampons, ascenders, descenders, and more. The ideal time for this expedition is from mid-September to December and from March to May.

    At 5,844m, Naya Kang Peak is an excellent choice for novice alpinists seeking an introductory expedition to more challenging peaks. Nestled in the Langtang region, also known as Ganja La Chuli Peak, it is surrounded by the pristine alpine landscape of Langtang National Park, home to dense forests of rhododendron, fir, blue and chir pine, oaks, and birch. The park also harbors diverse wildlife, including leopards, musk deer, Himalayan black bears, langur monkeys, and red pandas.

    The standard route to conquer Naya Kang Peak involves traversing the north-east ridge over ice and snow. Following the main Langtang trail, climbers ascend to Kyangjin (3,749m) before reaching the summit of Naya Kang. A day of acclimatization is spent at Kyangjin Ri, offering panoramic views of the Langtang range. The return journey retraces the same route, crossing Langtang Khola south of Kyangjin Gompa and ascending to Naya Kang Base Camp. The trek concludes with a return to Syabrubensi and an overland journey back to Kathmandu. Alternatively, an adventurous option is to trek over the Ganja La Pass to Helambu.
