Overview

On a beginner's mountaineering journey, Yala Peak, at 5732m, is a very easy and non-technical climb as well as one of Nepal's lowest trekking peaks. It is an opportunity to experience the distinctive customs of mountain people, as well as the best thrills of adventure trekking and peak climbing in the Langtang region, which is located in the heart of the Langtang Himalayan range, close to the Tibetan border. All tourists with prior outdoor expertise, but no prior mountaineering experience, are welcome to attempt to climb to the summit. The mountain ranges of Nepal and Tibet may be seen from the peak. This mountain is frequently utilized as a warm-up for the valley's opposite side, Naya Kanga.

The trek begins in Kathmandu with a drive to Syabrubesi, then a two-day hike through woods and villages up the Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa at the foot of the majestic Langtang Lirung (7246 m). Visit the Buddhist monasteries and the Langshisa glacier on a day off. The following day, we set up our high camp (4800m), provided the essential climbing skills and training for crampons, ice axes, and ropes, and climbed to the summit of Yala Peak.  From the Summit, we'll be rewarded with spectacular views of Langtang Lirung (7,246m), Lenpo Gang (7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m), Ganesh Himal, and Naya Kanga from the top.Gangchempo (6388m) and the massive Shishapangma (8027m), Tibet's only single mountain with a height exceeding 8000m. We returned to Syabrubesi and drove back to Kathmandu after a successful climb of Yala Peak.
