Nayakhang Peak is a technical climb that calls for an adequate basis in climbing technique and familiarity with high-altitude mountaineering. April through May and October through November are considered the best months to undertake the ascent of Nayakhang Peak because of the favorable weather conditions. The north-east ridge is typically snow-covered and the most popular approach to the peak.

The trail to the summit of Nayakhang Peak passes through picturesque forests and quaint villages on its way to the summit of the peak. Technical climbing gear, including ice axes, crampons, ropes, and harnesses, is essential for making the ascent. Climbing the mountain also necessitates obtaining a climbing permit from the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA).
