Yala Peak climbing is the perfect introductory climb for novice mountaineers. At 5,732m of height, the top of Yala Peak spreads out one of the most beautiful mountain landscapes in the Nepalese Himalaya. Yala Peak (5,732m), nestled in the heart of Lantang near the Tibetan border, is considered as the easiest and convenient route for people who want to climb a summit in a short period of time. Although necessary precautions and average physical fitness is required, this expedition doesn’t require the use of advanced equipment and intense physical training. But, you will still get to use some of your tools on this trip.
Yala Peak climbing with Langtang valley trek begins in Kathmandu with sightseeing of the valley’s UNESCO World Heritage sites and trek/summit preparation. The next morning, we drive to Syabrubesi and start our trek from there. The drive is scenic and exciting at the same time.
Trekking through forests, small villages, chortens, mani walls and Himalayan flora and fauna of the Langtang Valley which falls under the Langtang National Park, we reach the base camp of Yala peak. Before actually setting foot on the base camp, we can enjoy a 360-degree panoramic view of the mountains from Kyanjin Gompa. We acclimatize at Kyanjin, so you have ample time to explore the scenic vantage point.
We begin the climb on the 8th day of the trek and summit on the ninth. Considered a trekking peak by the Nepal Mountaineering Association, Yala is a relatively easier and non-technical climb compared to other mountains in the Himalaya. Once at the top, you will get fantastic views of Langtang Lirung (7246m), LenpoGang(7083m), DorjeLakpa(6990m) and the mighty Shishapangma(8027m). We also have a spare day in case the bad weather doesn’t allow the summit. We then trek back to Lama Hotel and then drive back to Kathmandu.

Today, we go on a sightseeing tour of the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in the city. We start the program after breakfast, first visiting the sacred Hindu temple of Pashupatinath. Though non-Hindus are not allowed inside the main premises of the temple we are allowed to visit the cremation site and surrounding areas. We then head to Boudhanath, considered one of the largest stupas in Asia due to the massive mandala that surrounds the main dome. The smell of Himalayan incense and locals doing kora(making clockwise rounds of the stupa) gives you a little insight on Buddhist culture. Our next stop is Swayambhunath also known as the Monkey Temple, located on top of a hill. The stupa is similar to Boudhanath, but here the stupa is surrounded by many temples and shrines. Some of the temples date back to the medieval Lichchhavi period. Our final stop is Kathmandu Durbar square which is a fine example of Newari architecture. The premises of the Durbar square house many temples and royal palaces, however, most of the temples and building were destroyed by the 2015 earthquake and are being renovated.
