Our Yala Peak Climbing itinerary has been designed by veteran climbers and is managed with utmost consideration to safety. We ensure that this package adheres to protecting your comfort and well-being. We do this by ascending slowly, and not spending too long at too high of altitudes. In addition, Yala Peak Climbing can be experienced by adventurers little experience. Do not let the idea of climbing a peak scare you away. It is technically difficult, but you will be adequately trained and guided before and during the summit.
Behind the Everest and Annapurna regions, Langtang rates as the third most well-known trekking spot in Nepal. Still, there are few trekkers and climbers that visit. Yala Peak (5,732 meters / 18,806 feet) is especially underrated. Cling to the nearly vertical wall that leads to the Yala Peak summit. With your adrenaline pumping, look at the glacial valley below you. It is a most magnificent sight.
Relative to most of Nepal’s climbing peaks, the Yala Peak summit is not exceptionally high. However, it is a bit of a technical climb. You should have some mountaineering experience under your belt before attempting this. If you do, we will have no problem reaching the summit together as a team.
Like all climbing peaks in Nepal, we start out with a multiple-day journey through picturesque landscapes. In this case, we move through the Langtang Valley. Our trail passes small villages next to terraced hillsides, following the Langtang River along the way. We are put at ease by the flowing river, lush forests, and the chirping of birds.
It’s a continual uphill climb along the river and quaint tea houses along the way offer meals for nourishment. Finally, we arrive at the alpine pastures of Kyanjin Gompa, a spiritual center and settlement with incredible mountain views. Here we can stop in and watch one of the monastery’s daily ceremonies, or take a tour at one of Nepal’s oldest Yak-milk Swiss cheese factories. Kyanjin Gompa is our ultimate destination of the trek, though there are several absolutely breathtaking day trips that we can take from here. You can explore the high glacial valley of Langshisha Kharka, or witness astonishing views at Kyanjin Ri (4773 meters). Another high point, Tserko Ri, (4985 meters) offers a view of over 21 Himalayan peaks. Both Kyanjin Ri and Tserko Ri offer 360-degree panorama views of the Langtang region. Taking our sweet time, we snap some photos and sit with smiles on our faces in appreciation of the mountains. This is perfect preparation climbs for summiting Yala Peak.
The following day, establish Yala Peak base camp at 4800 meters and set up our tent campsite. If the weather is right, early the next morning we make our ascent. A sweeping view of the entire Langtang range (and more) at the top takes our breath away. Take some photographs and enjoy the moment. From here, we head back down along the same trail until we reach Syabrubesi. We celebrate our successful Yala Peak Climbing with a tasty Nepali style dinner in Kathmandu.
Climbing is most possible during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). Yala Peak Climbing requires fitness and acclimatization to avoid acute mountain sickness. Breeze Adventure arranges the climb with complete management. Please, feel free to contact us for more detailed information.
