Spin orbit coupling (SOC) brought significant progress to the field of quantum spin liquids (QSLs). Yb-based magnets are prime candidates for the QSL-state and as such the NaYbCh2 series is regarded as a unique platform to study anisotropic planar spin 1/2 triangular lattice magnetism (TLM) with bond frustration. In contrast to YbMgGaO4,which shares the same space group (R-3m), NaYbCh2 lacks inherent lattice distortions and Yb resides on a centrosymmetric position in the YbCh6 octahedron. Our comprehensive study combines bulk- and local- probes and identifies NaYbCh2 as a new class of spin orbit entangled TLMs were the QSL state is realized on a perfect triangular lattice [1,2]. The application of fields in (a,b)-plane transforms the system into a critical regime followed by long range order. We present magnetization, specific heat and Na NMR data down to 300 mK
