Naya Kanga (Ganja La Chuli) Peak


Naya Kanga (5,844m), formerly known as Ganja La Chuli lies in the lap of the most perfect alpine landscape in the world, the Langtang region. Regarded as the second largest national park in Nepal, Langtang National Park has healthy forests of rhododendron, fir, blue and chir pine and birch. The wildlife in the park includes leopard, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, rhesus and langur monkeys and the endangered red panda. The Langtang valley is surrounded by high peaks with great appeal. When the British mountaineer Bill Tilman described it as the most beautiful valley in the world, since then it has gained its popularity among the nature lovers. Furthermore, the region is also popular for alpine plants. The valley is dominated by the Tibetan origin Tamang community.

Naya Kanga (5,844 m) rises to the west of Ganja La is a popular but difficult mountain to climb. The normal route to this peak follows the snowy north-east ridge. The first climber of this peak is still unknown. The most important reward of climbing Naya Kang is the stunning view of Lantang Lirung (7246m), Lenpo Gang 7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m) and mighty Shishapangma (8027m) in Tibetan side. Easy access to the region and availability of several snow peaks scattered around for acclimatization make this region an ideal destination for mountaineers.
