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.
