Naya Kanga Peak Climbing

Naya Kanga Peak Climbing

Naya Kanga is an interesting and attractive peak situated to the west of the Ganja La pass (5,122m/16,800ft). The pass has to be negotiated with before an attempt on  the summit of Naya Kanga can be made. From the summit there are some spectacular panoramic views of  the mountains both in Nepal and  Tibet  including Langshisa RI (6,370m/20,894ft), Pemthang RI (6,836m/22,422ft), Shisapangma (8,046m/27,749ft), Langtang Lirung (7,425m/24,354ft), Pemthang Kapro RI (6,830m/22,402ft) and Langtang II (6,571m/21,553ft). The normal route of ascent to Naya Kanga is via the north - East Ridge with a lot of  ice and snow.  The technical difficulty of the climb is rated at Alpine Grade PD+. This is mainly due to the fact that there are significant snow slopes for most of the journey above camp 1,  there are also some crevasses as you turn west below the Ganja La; and finally the short ridge section to the summit. The summit can be made in two days from Kyanjin with one camp at Branchen or Nyengang Kharka, or alternatively in three days with a second camp at Kangla Phedi just below the Ganja La.

The route in follows the route of  Langtang Trek to Kyangjin (3,749m/12,297ft)  Gumpa  before cutting off to ascend Naya Kanga. After the completion of the  Langtang valley trek at kyanjin  Gumpa  we commence our  journey up the Ganga La pass. We leave Ganja La trail to climb steeply up yet more moraines to reach the eastern end of the glacier shelf beneath the north - east face of Naya Kanga. We set up high camp here for the ascent. Normally, the ascent takes six hours from the high camp. For the return journey  we follow the Ganja La- Helembu route back to Kathmandu five six days.
