Naya Kanga Peak, also known as Ganjala Chuli lies in the Langtang Range, west of Ganja La Pass (5,122m) at the elevation of 5,844m. The peak is famous among the climbers for its difficult mountain climbing. The usual route of climbing is a trek through the Helambu Region to ascend through the snow-covered northeast ridge. This is a perfect example of the site with easy access, but challenging mountainous climb, covered with snow. This challenge makes the Langtang region of the climb a perfect destination for the mountaineers.

This is 16-days 15-nights journey and it could be an interesting peak for new climbers to test their trekking skills. The expedition is perfect for those who want to gain some experience in mountaineering with a straight path, but with a challenging difficulty. The Naya Kanga Peak has its sheer beauty and magnificence for all the aspirants throughout the world. It is highly attracted by nature lovers throughout the world. The forest areas are quite famous for their alpine plants. The locals living in the valley belong to the Tamang Community of Tibetan origin.

The trekking trail has healthy forests of rhododendron, fir, blue and chirr pine, and birch. The alpine wildlife such as leopard, musk deer, Himalayan black bear, rhesus and langur monkeys, and the endangered red panda can be encountered on the trail during the trek.
