Yala Peak Climbing

Duration: 15 Days

Trip Overview

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.

Pre-Trip Meeting 

Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of the meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
