Nayakang Peak (5,844 m/ 18,005 ft) is a moderate altitude peak in the Langtang National Park of Nepal. The national park is located in the central northern part of Nepal. The national park was established in 1976 AD. It is one of the most beautiful trekking routes in the country. Nayakang Peak Climbing is a fabulous excursion towards the beautiful Langtang Valley. The Langtang Valley forms the bulk of the national park. The Nayakang Peak is located in the northern reaches of the Langtang Valley. The mountain is one of the most popular climbing peaks in Nepal because of its ease of access and climbing.
Naya Kanga peak is below 6,000 meters making the climb possible with just a little preparation. The peak is also popular because it is located very near to the Kathmandu Valley. The Langtang Valley lies adjacent to the Kathmandu Valley and is located in the northern part of the Capital city of Nepal. The trek towards Langtang Valley starts with a bus (jeep) ride from Kathmandu to Syabrubesi. The ride takes us along the beautiful banks of the Trishuli river. The Trishuli River is one of the deepest and most beautiful rivers in Nepal.
We will reach Syabrubesi after a joyride along the beautiful hills of the Mahabharata range of Nepal. We will begin our trek the next day from Syabrubesi. We will cross the Bhote Koshi river after walking a little ahead of Syabrubesi. The Bhote Koshi River is a tributary of the Sapta Koshi River. It is one of the wildest rivers of Nepal. A little further downstream, people take part in adventurous rafting along with the crystal white waters of Bhote Koshi.
After crossing the Bhote Koshi river, we will enter the Langtang National Park. The Langtang National Park is home to many endangered species of flora and fauna. If we are lucky, then we can also get a view of the endangered Red Panda. Rhododendron, Bamboo, Pine, Fir, etc are the most common species of plants found in the national park. We will reach the village of Langtang during the middle of our trek. The village was badly destroyed by the 2015 earthquake that hit Nepal. The village has now come back to life after a quick rebuilding by the locals.
The Langtang village is settled by the local Tamang people. We will explore the village and learn about the tradition and culture of the Tamang people. We will further explore towards the north of the valley and then get close to the Kyanjin Gompa. This voyage provides us with a splendid view of Langtang, Langshisha, and Lakpa Dorje mountains. Many beautiful grazing pastures like the Langhshisha Kharka and the Naya Kang pasture are located on the way towards the northern border.
The Nayakang Peak gets closer as we move north from Kyanjin Gompa. We will get a spectacular view of the valley on all sides and rims of mountains surrounding them as we reach the base camp of Nayakang Peak. The peak can be climbed in one day. Nayakang Peak Climbing offers a spectacular view of the Himalayan mountains in the north. We will celebrate our success after returning back to the base camp. We will take the same return path on our way to Kathmandu.
