An easily accessible peak that lies close to Kathmandu, in the Langtang region of Nepal, is a perfect climbing destination for any amateur climbers and beginners. Naya Kanga Peak Climbing is easy but technically difficult for climbing purpose however it does not require any kind of prior experience. An alluring peak of Naya Kanga that rises to the west of Ganja La at an elevation of 5122 metres offers some fascinating views of mountains in Nepal and Tibet namely Pemthang RI, Lantang Lirung, Langshisa RI, Langtang II, Ganesh Himal, Pemthang Kapro RI, Shisapangma and many more.
As we view the peak from a hill above Kyangjin gompa that lies on our way to Langtang valley, it looks fascinating. As the peak rises to the west of Ganja La, it is also popular amongst people as Ganja La Peak. The peak ascends through the northeast ridge along icy and snowy slopes. The alpine vegetation like birch, fir and rhododendron forests found in the region preserves some interesting animals like musk deer, rhesus monkeys, Himalayan black beer, red panda and many more. Naya Kanga Peak Climbing is also an opportunity to get acquainted with the local culture and tradition practiced in the Langtang region of Nepal. The warm greeting from local people with Tibetan Buddhist influence found in the monasteries of Kyangjin gompa is a wonderful experience.
