Yala Peak (5732 meters) is one of the easy trekking peaks and less technical but is among popular trekking peak. It lies just to the north of Kathmandu in the Langtang valley region. Our Yala Peak Climbing trek is most suitable for those who wish to stand on a Himalayan summit but have a limited amount of time available. It offers the best thrill of adventure trekking and peak climbing in the Langtang way beyond simply hiking. Yala peak climbing does not require mountaineering experience.
Your trip starts from a 9 hours drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi, then after hiking for around 5 days we reach Langtang valley. Yala climbing gives you several opportunities to visit Buddhist Monasteries, know Tibetian Buddhist culture and historical phenomena. The last 400 m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axe and rope. From the summit we can see Shishapangma (8046 m) and the fluted Gangchempo (6388 m).
The Yala Peak climb is non-technical. Prior climbing experience is not required however extensive outdoor experience and a reasonably good level of fitness is necessary and will enable you to thoroughly enjoy your adventure.

To enable all expedition members to acclimatize well and hence maximize their chances of success, our expedition programs are prepared with sufficient time for acclimatization. Adaptation to the altitude takes time and there can be no short-cuts, even if supplementary oxygen is used in the final stages. The atmospheric pressure at the base camp is half of that at the sea level. A thorough program of acclimatization is built into the itinerary which consists of regulated height ascents, followed by descents and rests before the final ascent to the summit. This will prevent the climbers to get rid from altitude sickness.
Why Tipping is essential?
There are several reasons why you should tip in Nepal. It is quite the same as for what you tip in restaurants. They live in remote areas that are far from proper health and education facilities. Tipping them will additionally encourage them to manage good and nutritive food to eat, warm and comfortable clothes to wear or other necessary basic requirements to maintain their livelihood in a comfortable way. A small gesture of gratitude will do no harm to you but actually changes the lives of many people for a long time in many reasons.
