Background 

Climb one of the most beautiful and easiest small peaks in Nepal on the Yala Peak Climbing trip. Yala Peak (5500m) is a trekking peak located inside the pristine Langtang National Park and is one of the closest trek destinations to Kathmandu. Langtang is known for its delectable nature, massive glaciers, and indigenous Tamang tribe and their rich culture. The trip also offers plenty of sceneries of the Langtang Himalayas and concludes with a panoramic display of the Jugal, Shishapangma, and Gaurishankar ranges from the top of the Yala Peak (5500m).

The 15-day Yala Peak Climbing trip begins upon your arrival in Kathmandu followed by a brief climb preparation. Your guide will assess your gear and equipment. After two days in Kathmandu, you’ll drive 7- 8 hours’ drive northwest of Kathmandu to Sybrubensi. From Sybrubensi, you will commence the trek and gradually make your way to Yala Peak Base Camp through the traditionally rich Tamang villages. Most of the trail lies inside Langtang National Park as you pass through Lama Hotel, Ghodatabela, and Langtang village en route to Kyanjin Gompa (3870m). From here, you’ll advance towards Yala Peak Base Camp. After a brief preparation, you will commence the ascent of Yala Peak. A 7-hour climb will take you to the top of the summit from where you can enjoy the beautiful panorama of Langtang Lirung (7227m), Gangchempo (6388m), Tserko Ri (4984), and Dorje Lakpa (6966m) along with Shishapangma (8013m) in Tibet. After a short rest, you head back to the base camp. Afterward, you’ll retrace your path and descend to Sybrubensi via Kyanjin, Langtang village, and Lama Hotel. The trip concedes upon your return to Kathmandu. You can undertake Yala Peak Climbing during two different seasons namely spring (Mar-Jun) and autumn (Sep-Nov).
