Naya Kanga Peak Climbing (5,844m)
Naya Kanga Peak (5844m) situated in the southern flank of Langtang and towering over the South of alpine Langtang valley and holy lakes of Gosaikund is one the most interesting climbing peak in Nepal. It is a safe mountain to climb with many possibilities of a classic alpine attempt along one of its awesome ridge systems providing superb climbing and spectacular scenery from the summit with vistas on interesting peaks of Langtang range Lantang Lirung (7246m), Lenpo Gang 7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m) and at Tibet's highest and the only one eight thousand meter peak, the mighty Shisapangma (8035m). The diversity of the climb, low objective climbing danger, steep but accessible routes and fantastic trekking routes make Naya Kanga a very interesting and satisfying climbing choice in Nepal.
The standard access through Langtang Valley from Syaphrubesi is the simplest and quickest and as often the case also the best at least from the point of view of Bill Tilman, one of the most renown and celebrated British mountaineers, who described the Langtang Valley as the most beautiful valley in the world. Langtang the second largest national park in Nepal, has healthy rhododendron forests with tremendous amount of fir, blue pine and birch. The diverse wildlife in the park includes leopard, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, rhesus and languor monkeys and the endangered red panda.
For people seeking remote wilderness there are two other access routes one from Syaule via spectacular Tilmans Pass and another from Melamchi Pul via Ganja-La Pass. The Tilmans Pass is in particular interesting, spectacular and wild and the adventure itself. The normal route of ascent to Naya Kanga (5844m) is via the Northeast Ridge. It follows from Kyangjin Gumba (3830m) through the Naya Kanga Base Camp (4300) and Naya Kanga High Camp (4950m). The climbing route from the High camp is a 2.4km snow-ice ridge route with 900m elevation gain and average slope rangin from 20deg to 50deg to get on the ridge and 45deg along the ridge.

We provide the climbing Sherpa with appropriate radio communication to the climbing route.
Approach to Base Camp
The approach trek starts in Syaphrubesi (1500m) after long but scenic 8hrs drive from Kathmandu. The trek ascends gently through spectacular Langtang Valley to Bamboo(2400m), Langtang (3430m) and Kyanjin Gumba (3830m).
At Kyanjin Gumba we leave the valley South along Naya Kanga La Pass trail to the Naya Kanga Base camp (4300m) and High Camp (4950m). We cross Langtang Khola south of Kyanjin Gumba and climb a steep ridge with average slope 30deg for about 1km gaining about 300m, through Rhododendron and Juniper forest. The slope flattens for next 1km and raises again to 30deg for a short section just before the Base camp (4300m), which is located at the edge of the lateral moraine.
From the Base Camp we climb 40deg moraine for about 1.2 km gaining 500m. We leave the trail towards Naya Kanga High Camp C1 (4950m), the slope levels for about 900m while walking through glacial moraine. We setup out High Camp C1 on the glacier shelf at the base of Northeast shoulder.
We cross the glacier shelf to the bottom of a shallow 50deg couloir leading to the notch (5300m) at the base of the Northeast ridge from where we turn left and climb straight up to the Ridge on the 45deg snow field. We reach the Northeast Ridge at 5570m, turn left and follow it Southeast for 500m to the summit (5844m) on the average slope of 40-45deg.
The ridge is protected by its width but it narrows before the summit and presents a degree of exposure; however for an experienced climber this should not pose any considerable issues. Normally the ascent takes 5-7hrs from C1. We return to C1 for overnight rest.

Naya Kanga Peak Climbing 07th March-2011
I planned to climb Naya Kanga Peak in March and Snowy Horizon helped me a lot - I got a great guide who has done an impressive List of ascents of high mountains. He was a real fighter when it came to struggle against a hell lot of snow - yet we had to give in before reaching the High Camp. Anyway, this hasn't been the fault of anybody involved. I had a good time, felt safe and secure and can recommend Snowy Horizon to anybody who looks for a challenge in Nepal Himalaya. I would like to many thanks Mr. Rishi Bhandari and his company working team.... .Read More
