Ganja La Chuli (Naya Kanga) Peak (5,844m) is situated on the southern flank of Langtang region of Nepal. Its fine ridge provides us the climbing opportunity and from the summit, we will have spectacular scenery of Jugal Himal, Langsisa Ri and at Tibet's sideMt. Shisapangma (8,035m).
The normal route of ascent to Naya Kanga is via the north - East Ridge over a line on ice and snow. We pursue the route of Langtang trek up to Kyangjin (3,749m) to ascend Naya Kanga. To the north above Kyangjin, there are several hills that provide both the magnificent views and acclimatization.
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 beneath the northeast face of Naya Kanga (Ganja La). We set up the high camp here for the ascent. 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. Then, we turn to the ice nose on the left, which is only the technical section of the climb. Now the ridge widens and leads to a small col. on the east-west summit ridge. 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 from the high camp. For the return trek, we may follow Ganja La-Helambu route or Syabru Besi.
