Overview

The Langtang National Park is the fourth national park in Nepal and was established in 1976 as the first Himalayan national park.

This protected area exceeds an altitudinal range of 6450 meters and covers an area of 1710 square kilometers in the Nuwakot, Rasuwaand Sindhupalchok districts of the central Himalayan region encompassing 26 Village Development Committees. The Langtang National Park exhibits a high diversity of 14 vegetation types in 18 ecosystem types, ranging from upper tropical forests below 1,000 meters (3,300 feet) altitude to alpine scrub and perennial ice.The climate of the park is dominated by the southwest summer monsoon.

Temperatures vary greatly due to the extreme difference in the altitude of the entire area. Most of the annual precipitation occurs from June to September. From October to November and from April to May, days are warm and sunny, and nights are cool. In spring, rain at 3,000 m (9,800 ft) elevation often turns to snow at higher elevations. In winter from December to March, days are clear and mild but nights near freezing. That is why this expedition is open only in September and October. Standing at 5844 meters, the Naya Kanga is an interesting and attractive peak situated to the west of the Ganja La pass (5,122 meters). From the summit there are some spectacular panoramic views of the mountains both in Nepal and Tibet including Langshisa RI (6,370 meters), Pemthang RI (6,836 meters), Shisapangma (8,013 meters), LangtangLirung (7,227 meters), PemthangKapro RI (6,830 meters) and Langtang II (6,571 meters). The normal route of ascent to Naya Kanga is via the north – East Ridge with a lot of ice and snow. The route is relatively short, and has more technical interest and poses less altitude difficulties than other higher peaks. The mountain scenery is as exciting as anywhere in Nepal, and the climb offers stunning views across the Shishapangma in Tibet along with other beautiful mountains.
