The Naya Kanga Peak Climbing Expedition or simply known as the Ganga Chuli Expedition is a comparatively easy peak climbing trip to the 5584 meters tall peak. Though this is not more than a mountaineering expedition, this hike offers not only the views of the high alps of the Langtang Region but also explores the way of life of the Tamang people of this community alongside their hospitality and other life struggles.
Similar to the Langtang Valley Trek, this trip also begins with a long drive to the village of Syabrubesi through the narrow bends and rough roads of Dhunche. Following our arrival at Syabrubesi, our trails take us towards the Lama Hotel. Our arrival at the hotel comes after walking for almost 6 hours. Though it's that long, walking alongside beautiful waterfalls, the Langtang River, views of the Ganesh and Manaslu peaks, it becomes quite easy. Next up is the Langtang Village, which was entirely destroyed during the 2015 earthquake. Don't worry, this village is now shifted to a safer place 100 meters away from where it previously was. Another day's trek marks our arrival at the Kyanjin Gompa which stays as the home to the largest Mani wall in Nepal. Relish in the views of the Kyanjin RI, Tserko RI, Kinshung, and such other peaks. Oh, and don't forget to visit the Yak Cheese factory while here. As a rehearsal to our climb a few days later, we'll be summiting the 500 meters tall Tserko RI. Enjoy!
Following our exploration of the Kyanjin Gompa, parade towards the settlement of Nyengang Kharka. From here, it's an easy trek to the last stop before our summit, the Naya Kanga High Camp. Within a three days buffer period, we'll head towards the top of the Naya Kanga Peak and mark our victory. Plunge back to the high camp and then towards the Nyengang Kharkha. The trails follow the same path we used during the start of our trek towards the Lama Hotel followed by Syabrubesi. A long drive to Kathmandu marks an end to our peak climbing expedition.
