Langtang region is a popular destination for climbing snow peaks and spectacular panoramic views of mountains in Nepal and Tibet . Easy access to the region and availability of several snow peaks scattered around for acclimatization make this region an ideal destination for novice as well as experienced climbers.

Naya Kanga is an attractive peak rising to the west of the Ganja La pass (5,122m/16,800ft) . Ascending to Ganja La and the summit of Naya Kanga offer the spectacular panoramic views of mountains in Nepal and Tibet including Langshisa Ri (6,370m/20,894ft), Pemthang Ri (6,836m/22,422ft), Shisapangma (8,046m/27,749ft), Langtang Lirung (7,425m/24,354ft), Pemthang Kapro Ri (6,830m/22,402ft) and Langtang II (6,571m/21,553ft). The normal route of ascent to Naya Kanga is via the north - east ridge over a line on ice and snow. We follow the route of Langtang trek to Kyangjin (3,749m/12,297ft) for the ascent of Naya Kanga. Northeast of Kyangjin Ri (4,700m/15,416ft), there are two peaks; Yala Peak (5,500m/18,040ft) and Tsergo Peak (5,749m/18,857ft) that provide good climbing for acclimatization.North-East Face & North RidgeCrossing the Langtang Khola below Kyangjin, we climb steeply along the ridge through a forest of rhododendron and juniper. We continue following the trail to Ganja La climbing steeply through moraine.

We leave Ganja La trail to climb steeply up yet more moraine to reach the eastern end of the glacier shelf beneath the north-east face of Naya Kanga. We cross the glacier shelf to the foot of a shallow couloir heading to the north ridge. We climb the couloir to the notch and the base of the ridge. Now the ridge widens and leads to a small col. on the east-west summit ridge and the summit is only 30m higher to the right. The climb near the summit should be done carefully. Normally, the ascent takes 5-7 hours.
