Get set for a reviving experience of peak climbing in the Langtang region of Nepal with Naya Kangala Peak climbing journey! Langtang region is an easily accessible place from the capital city of Kathmandu which makes Naya Kangla peak climbing the most accessible peak climbing activity in Nepal. Talking about the technical difficulty, Naya Kangala peak climbing is one of the easy peak climbing journeys for which no prior climbing experience is required. However, it offers the magnificent views of Langtang range with wild landscapes of Langtang valley in abundance. Naya Kangla peak lies west to Ganja La peak and rises to an elevation of 5122 meters. As you rise up to this height, you will be rewarded with the spectacular views of PemthangRi, Langtang Lirung, Langshisa Ri, Langtang II, Ganesh Himal, Pemthang Kapro Ri, Shisapangma and many other neighboring peaks.
Naya Kangala peak climbing is a glorifying journey that starts with a drive from the capital city of Kathmandu to Syaru bensi. From Sabrubensi, you start your actual trekking journey. You walk along a well-marked trail and pass various villages and lush landscape on the way to Lama Hotel. Ultimately, you open up to the wild and appealing landscape of the Langtang valley. The valley has an arid landscape with the mountain peaks all around. Langtang village is mostly inhabited by people of Magar and Tamang community. You can find the influence of Buddhism in this area. The prayer flags, concerns, gompas, and mani walls reflect the influence of Buddhist culture in this area. In Langtang village, you can visit Kyangin gompa which is a popular destination for any traveler in Langtang village.
From Langtang village, Naya Kangala Peak climbing proceeds with a walk up to the Naya Kangala Base Camp. We take time for acclimatization and ascend up the peak. From the peak, you will be blessed with some inspiring views of mountains and mountainous landscape. After conquering the top, we descend down and return back to Kathmandu via the same path. During Naya Kangla peak climbing, we will be walking inside Langtang National Park for most of the time. Langtang National Park is a preserved section of that region and is home to many birds, animals, mammals and plants. During the trek, you will pass through the forests of rhododendron, birch, fir, and bamboo. If lucky you may encounter Panda as well. So, are you ready for this exciting ascend up to Naya Kangla peak with Nepal Intrepid Treks? We are always ready at your service.

Wake up for an exciting day as your guide will escort you to the UNESCO listed heritage sites in Kathmandu. The tour today is all about art, culture and history that Nepal possesses. Visit Kathmandu Durbar Square, Swayambhunath stupa, Pashupatinath temple and Boudhanath stupa. The day can be an enlightenment of Hindu and Buddhist culture. You can also prepare for the trekking that starts the other day by buying some left out items, final packing and other preparations. Stay at your hotel in the evening. (Breakfast included)
Enjoy your breakfast at the hotel. Your guide will pick you up at the hotel and escort you to the vehicle which will take you to the Syabru Besi. We drive north-west to Kathmandu enjoying the views of lush hills and terraced farmlands until we reach Syanbru Besi. Spend your night at a guesthouse in Syabrubesi. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
We start our actual trekking journey from today. We follow our trail and start walking on our own pace. Slowly, our trail ascends up through a forest until we reach Bamboo village. We stop for our lunch here and rest for a while. We continue our path through a well paved forested area watching the birds fly and enjoying the pristine forest environment. We can see the bee hives, birds nest and small animals like squirrels running here and there. We climb up through the bamboo forest until we reach Lama hotel. We stay at a guesthouse for the night. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
Leaving Lama Hotel, we continue walking through the rhododendron and pine forest along a pleasant path until we reach Ghoda Tabela. The literal meaning of Ghoda Tabela in English literature is horse stable. We stop at Ghoda Tabela for lunch and explore the area as we rest for a while. We can see dense wild habitat and herbal plants around this area. We leave Ghoda Tabela and walk for around three hours through a scenic path until we reach Langtang village. We stop at a guesthouse in Langtang village for the night. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
Our trail climbs up gradually through small villages and yak pastures until a valley opens up. We cross Laja Khola and climb up a moraine to get a view of Kyangjin Gompa and the fascinating icefall that flows from Langatnag Lirung. The views of both Gompa and icefall from this point are magnificent. The snow covered peaks of Ganjala, Langtang Lirung, TserkoRi and LangsisaRi is outstanding. As we reach Kyangjingompa, we hike up to KyanjinRi and trek back to gompa. We spend our night at a guesthouse in the gompa. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
We spend our day exploring around the gompa. We visit the cheese factory and monastery and hike up to Chokari Ri to admire the magnificent views of icefalls and mountains. Chokari Ri at 5050 metres is the highest point of this trek. After beholding the beauty of Langtang ranges, we descend down to Kyangjin Gompa for overnight stay. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
After enough acclimatization in Kyangjin gompa, we head towards Naya Kangla Base Camp. We pack all our gears in the gompa and start walking along the river. We cross the river and climb uphill to the base camp of Naya Kangla peak. Upon arrival, we set up a camp for our overnight stay. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
Leaving base camp, we walk along a rocky path that takes us to a glacier region. We set our tents in the high camp and practice some climbing techniques for our big day tomorrow. The leader will give us a short briefing on the climbing journey and teach us how to use our equipment and some climbing tips. We stay at our camp for the night. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
After nine days long journey to the high camp of Naya Kangla peak, it’s a big day to summit the peak. We start our climbing journey early at around 2 a.m. in the morning so as to avoid warm storms that blows abundantly in the afternoon. We use the ropes and climbing techniques taught to us by our leader yesterday. We follow our leader along the fixed ropes until we get to the top. Once we reach top, we will be blessed with the panoramic views of snow clad mountains that lies in Lantang region along with the mountains in Tibet. After beholding the beauty of wilderness in mountainous region of Langtang, we retrace our journey back to base camp for overnight stay. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)
We have set aside a reserve day in case of any contingencies. No one knows what might happen in high altitude. Sometimes the weather may not favor us while sometimes our health may not favour us due to altitude sickness. Therefore, in case you were unable to attempt peak climbing in Day 10, you have another chance today. You can utilize this day for climbing the Naya Kanga peak
Today, we retrace our journey back to Kyangjin gompa. We enjoy our overnight stay amidst the wild rocky terrain of Langtang with a cultural blend of gompa. (Breakfast, lunch and dinner included)

April/May 2019 16-Day Trek to EBC
Had an extraordinary trek with Nepal Intrepid to Everest Base Camp. I got sick from the food in Kathmandu, and by day 4 I was too dehydrated and weak to continue. One of the guides stayed with me as my group continued so that I can rest. We eventually caught up with the group and made it to EBC! Such excellent and professional guides and porters!
You Need This Team To Make It To The Top. 100% Mera Peak Summit Success Rate. Looked After From Day 1.
I owe our success in reaching the Mera Peak summit safely to our amazing guide Lal and his amazing team of porters! We were a team of four women and we had a 100% summit success rate.
Lal went above and beyond from Day 1 when I missed my connecting flight to Kathmandu from Guangzhou due to bad weather in China. I finally arrived in Kathmandu late at night, tired and stressed out about my bags since it did not make my flight. As soon as Lal found out that I made it to Kathmandu, he made it to the airport in a flash, waiting to pick me up and take me to the hotel with a warm smile and a big welcome - and this was really late at night! When my airline failed to get my bag in time for the trek, Lal organised my luggage to arrive in Lukla before I even made it to Lukla! My luggage had all my gear and summit clothing, without this luggage I could not have started the trek. It was a huge relief seeing my luggage and it was all thanks to Lal and his efficiency for getting my luggage in time. There would have been no other way.
This was my first time doing a multi day trek, let alone climbing a mountain, I was nervous but Lal made sure I enjoyed the trek and most importantly I was safe. Lal and his team made sure it was their priority to make sure we were well prepared, safe, looked after and most importantly we all make it to the top. Little things like telling us to slow down while ascending to make sure we don't get altitude sickness, while other groups sped in front of us and did not make the summit because they were sick, making sure we were all well fed so that we had all the energy to endure the full 13 days, giving us water when we ran out of our own and believing in us all added up to our successful summit! His porter team Bupendra and Tula Raj all took turns to lead the party and helped us to carry our gear.
Every morning we would wake up and see their smiley faces ready to start the day trekking, while they were getting ready to carry our 50kg bags in tough terrain. Without hesitation, Lal and his porter team always offered a hand when us ladies weren't comfortable going down a steep hill and believe me the passes were insane! They made the trip much more enjoyable and memorable as we all had our funny and scary moments together.
Summit day was unbelievably the hardest and craziest day of my life! One to remember for the rest of our lives but we couldn't have made it without his team, his positivity and his patience. It took us 6 hours to reach the summit and Lal was with us every step of the way - feeding us snacks, opening our water bottles so that we can drink, carried our back packs to putting our polarised sunglasses on our faces to protect us from the sun. His team absolutely went above and beyond! Making the summit was an epic experience and to do it with a team that we grew closely with, who supported and believed in us made the experience even more special.
Lal and his team were always looking out for us and I could not be more grateful. We were constantly surrounded by positive attitude the whole way up and the whole way down, even after our summit day.
Although, we successfully summited and made it to Lukla, Lal did not stop working. Leaving Lukla was such a mess and super stressful as I had an international flight to make. Lal was always alert, always on call to see if there was an available seat for me on any of the outgoing flights.
Lal is honest and professional and I would definitely choose Nepal Intrepid Treks again. What an incredible ascent. I will never forget this trip. Until then my friend!
Mera Peak 14 day hike & 100% Success Rate!
This was my first trip to Nepal, and thanks to Lal and his amazing team, climbing Mera Peak was an awesome experience. Our group of 4 had a 100% success rate, when a lot of other travelers we met along the way, did not make it to the top.
Nothing was a problem for Lal, we had lost luggage and bad weather delays – which meant he had to reschedule accommodation/flights several times for us. He was so gracious, professional, and incredibly helpful every step of the way (literally!). Both him and our two incredible porters, really made our trip, going above and beyond on so many occasions.
Summit day was tough, but the support of Lal and his team – helped us all get through and make it to the top!
Lal always made us feel safe, supported and that nothing was a problem – and there was always a smile on his face. I would absolutely recommend trekking with Nepal Intrepid Treks and Expeditions, I’m so grateful for the experience, and can’t wait for my next adventure with Lal and his team.
Patan historic and good adventure
Was such an awesome trip and loved getting to try local cuisine. Our guide Amit was very knowledgeable and showed us many spiritual sites which were really cool. A must do if in the Kathmandu area.
Gokyo Lakes and Everest Base Camp 19days
Unreal experience! I opted for the longer trek as I wanted to see as much as possible in the time I had. I'm so glad I did.
My wonderful Guide Prem Karki and my assistant guide Lukpa were sensational! We laughed so much on the trek, with these 2 guiding us there was never a dull moment. Our success in reaching the Lakes and Everest Base Camp are purely down to their hard work and dedication. Plus I was lucky enough to meet another 6 legends who also opted for this unreal trek. We are now all the best of mates.
The trekking was hard at times and and some days were super easy. We had rain, snow, sunshine and everything in between. Each day we witnessed another insanely beautiful mountain and watched the landscape change the higher we went.
The Gokyo Lakes were stunning, I'm so glad we opted for this trek. The pictures attached are unfiltered!
Everest Base Camp was great! Such an amazing feeling to finally get there. We just sat and took it all in. Photos don't do it justice.
All the villages and places we stayed along the way were awesome! These tiny lodges and tea houses in the middle of the mountains were so cosy and the food is delicious. We met quite a few Sherpas who had summited Everest and we spoke to them at length about their expedition. Great bed time stories :)
Do yourself a favour and get on board this trek, you wont regret it!
Everest Base Camp & Gokyo 925-1010/2019
Kamal, Tilak and Prince were our guide. They have done an excellent job in ensuring we had everything we needed - water, wifi, food and so on. They explained Nepalese culture and identified the peaks for us as we were asking for the names every day, it is one of the most precious thing about having the locals with us. The tour was a huge success and thank you guys and team for making it happen, it would not be the same without you. I had really enjoyed every moment on the trek. Highly recommend the agent and guides to anyone considering paying a visit to the beautiful Himalayas.
Perfection EBC trekking
Professional risk control on EBC trekking. About airplane change the landing place on lukala or change the trekking schedule, your team also can find good guest house and restaurant.
It was wonderful experience in my life. Our guide Kamal is professional, patient, and kindly. In this trekking journey still had some situation from uncontrollable mother nature. But this team also can control and change it perfectly. If you will come to Nepal to explore, don't miss Nepal Intrepid Treks and Expeditions!
Our Visit to Nepal
I dont know where to Start. There are barely any bad points to talk about. The service was exceptional and everbody was so polite and friendly. Everything was well organized. The places we used to rest and eat where always nice and clean. The employees and shepards where dedicated for their jobs and tried to accomplish our goals in the best way possible. I want to send my best wishes Lal, Ram, Tulla and Santos.

Unforgettable solo trek in Nepal
I did the Mardi Himal trek with Nepal Intrepid Treks as a solo hiker in November 2019. I learned that I would be traveling in the region on business only a few weeks in advance, and after some research I reached out to Lal for help in customizing an add-on personal trip that worked for my tight schedule and my desire to do a beautiful and challenging trek in the iconic Annapurna region. Mardi Himal was the perfect trek:
- It offered epic views of Annapurna South and Fishtail nearly the entire time, getting closer and closer each day until High Camp and Base Camp when you’re right in between them and it feels like you can reach out and touch them!
- It offered a good balance of physically demanding sections and relatively easy sections, as well as spots to catch your breath, have some masala tea and take in the scenery.
- It offered great elevation gains, so that you can experience firsthand the way the environment, weather, and level of exertion changes as you climb higher and higher.
- The trekking camps were comfortable and the meals were very good. The people who ran the camps as well as the other guides and trekkers were lovely.
Lal put together my entire itinerary, including a couple nights in nice hotels in Kathmandu and Pokhara, and a yoga class at a beautiful retreat outside Pokhara. He ensured that every detail was covered during my stay, and he was in touch throughout to make sure everything was going smoothly. As an experienced hiker and marathon runner we were able to shorten the trek to 5 days by combining some days for greater distance each day; this was great for me both for the level of difficulty I was seeking as well as my tight schedule. My guide Nisan and my porter Prabin were skilled, knowledgeable, professional, extremely helpful and attentive, and fun to be around (not to mention they were great sports about the fast pace).
I’m beyond thrilled with the experience and the service level of Nepal Intrepid Treks. I will definitely come back for a longer trek, and I recommend them to anyone seeking an unforgettable experience in the Himalayas. Thank you Lal, Nisan, Prabin, and the entire Intrepid team for being excellent guides in every sense of the word, going above and beyond to make my unique solo trip a success and a truly life-changing experience.
