Naya Kanga peak (5844 m) also known as Ganja la Chuli is situated in the Langtang region. Easy access to the region and several peaks scattered around for acclimatization makes it an ideal destination for climbers. There are many small peaks in the region which is suitable for climbers who have no previous experience.
It is beautiful peak that rises to the west of Ganja La (5122 m). From the summit of the peak, climbers will be awarded with spectacular views of mountains in Nepal and Tibet including Langshisa Ri (6,370m), Pemthang Ri (6,836m), Shisapangma (8,099m), Langtang Lirung (7,425m), Pemthang Kapro Ri (6,830m) and Langtang II (6,571m).
The technical difficulty of the climb is rated at Alpine Grade PD+. This is mainly a function of three things: the fact that you are on significant snow slopes for most of the journey above camp 1; some crevasses as you turn west below the Ganja La; and finally the short ridge section to the summit. The summit can be gained 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.
