Langtang Ganja La Naya Kanga Peak is an adventurous trek with a moderate level climb of Naya Kanga in Langtang region of Nepal. The trek includes several view points that offers numerous opportunities of excellent vistas. Lang Sisha Kharka, Tsergo Ri and the summit of Naya Kanga provides absolutely delightful views of many Himalayan ranges located in the central part of Nepal. In the beginning and latter part of the trek, villages with terraced field gradually followed by extended but diminished mountain ranges on the horizon is a frequent but a very pleasing sight. Langtang Ganja La Naya Kanga Peak trek passes through several lodges run by local families, offering an insight to the lives of people of the hilly region of the country.

The trek starts from Syabru Besi and immediately heads towards a narrow valley carved by Langtang Khola (River). After several tiny settlements with only clutches of tea houses, the valley widens up and reaches Langtang village en route to Kyanjin. Kyanjin offers an exciting climb to Tsergo Ri, one of the best viewpoint on the trek. Naya Kanga is the next stop on the trek. Naya Kanga (5844 meters) is a popular trekking peak in Nepal situated in Langtang region; rising to the west of Ganja La (5110 meters). The most important reward of Naya Kanga Peak is the spectacular views of Ganesh I (7422 meters), Langsisa Ri (6427 meters), Yubra (6035 meters) and Dorje Lhakpa (6966 meters). The views also includes peaks in Tibet, with Shishapangma (8013 meters) being the most distinct. Naya Kanga Peak is physically strenuous but is technically moderate, making it an interesting option for someone looking to start the adventure in the Himalayas. After Naya Kanga, Ganja La Pass leads to Helambu valley. Helambu Valley has bigger and proper villages like Tarke Ghyang and Shermathang that lies en route to Melamchi Bazaaar, the ending point of Langtang Ganja La Naya Kanga Peak trek.

What is the best time to Visit Nepal? October to November:-
October to November also referred as the autumn season, this is the time of the year with the clear blue skies and green and lush valleys, easily making it the best time in the year to visit Nepal. Adding to the weather is also the festive season that falls in these months, Tihar, the festival of lights (also known as the festival of the brothers and sisters) being the highlight of the many festivals. The temperature can be hot in the days with clear sky with no rains and can be very pleasant for the views of the mountains.
December to February :-
December to February it is winter in Nepal in these 3 months in Nepal. High altitude trekking can be unbearable because of the freezing cold, with many treks with high passes being close at this time of the year. This could be easily the best time to visit and do some moderate treks like Annapurna Base Camp, Everest Base Camp Trek, Langtang Trek etc if a quiet, peaceful and less people on trails is your priority. The weather remains calm, rainfall is rare during these months and trekking is still very much possible and enjoyable as well.
March to May :-
March to May The spring season falls during this time and is easily the busiest time of the year in some parts, Everest Trekking trail in particular being the busiest region. The days can get really hot, at times temperature crossing 30 degrees Celsius mark but the jungles with blossoming colourful Rhododendrons and other flowers with towering snow capped pinnacles at the background are an absolute delight to watch. March to May, along with October to November are the best months to trek in Nepal.
June to September :-
June to September The worst time to trek in Nepal as heavy rains, floods and landslides are common until mid September. However, places like the Upper Dolpo and upper parts of Mustang are the places to be at this time of the year because of the least rainfall in these areas. Apart from these areas, all other areas are a nuisance to trek during these times because of the rains and the problems like leeches, muddy trails, cancelled flights.
