Ganja-La Chuli Peak is fiormerly known as Naya Kanga (5,844 m), rises to the west of Ganja La, and is a popular but difficult mountain to climb. The normal route to Nayakanga peak passes through the snowy north east ridge. 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 Base Camp or Nyengang Kharka, or alternatively in three days with a second camp at High camp just below the Ganja La. The most important reward of climbing Naya Kanga is the spectacular view of Langtang Mountains as well as Helambu mountains range including Dorje Lakpa and others. Moreover, also closely visible is the north side Tibetan mountains, including Shisapangma at 8035 meters. As of 2017 Nepal Mountaineering Association has removed Ganja-La Chuli from its list of Trekking Peaks. Now climbers can climb that peak without permit.
Trekking starting from Syabrubesi after a 7/8 hour drive from Kathmandu, we spend three days hiking the beautiful Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa at 3800 meters. Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7,246m) and spend one day acclimatizing taking day-hikes in spectacular surroundings. After the climb we return to Syabrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu. It is also possible to cross Ganjala pass and end your trek in Helambu continues to Melamchi Pul Bazar. The itinerary is subject to change as your interest and time frame.
