Naya Kanga, also called Ganja-La Chuli, is magnificently situated in the rarely visited Langtang region of Nepal . Its accessibility makes it an ideal choice of venue for a short visit to the himalayas. The normal route to this peak is via the snowy north-east ridge. It is not yet clear who climbed this summit first. The most important reward of Naya Kanga Peak Climbing is the spectacular view of mountains in or near Tibet

No one knows who first climbed this peak but many would like to credit Tilman with the feat. Certainly he and Peter Lloyd were probably the first westerners to cross the ganja La in this region. However it is certainly a beautiful looking mountain and worthy of far more attempts than it gets compared with the more well known trekking peaks in the Kumbhu. 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 beow the Ganja La.
