Yala peak Climbing is the best climbing destination which is the part if the Langtang Himal. It is located in the center part of Nepal. The base camp of Yala Peak is Kyangjin Gompa (3749m/12300 ft). Yala Peak is a fantastic beginner’s mountaineering trip, to one of Nepal’s easier trekking peaks.
Just to the north of Kathmandu in the Langtang region, this 5500 meters peak is situated in a beautiful valley of rich grazing pastures and Tamang people. From Katmandu, we drive to Dhunche or Syabrubesi, and after three-days trekking, we can reach to the Yala Peak. After an alpine start under stars, we are on the summit by late morning from where we can see the very beautiful view of Tibet and Shisapangma which is only 8000m.
This is a climbing trip in the Langtang valley north of Kathmandu. The Yala Peak Climbing is easy and suited for anyone with trekking experience. We start in Syabrubesi after a 5-hour drive from Kathmandu and spend five days hiking up the beautiful Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa at 3800 m. Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7246 m). We spend three days acclimatizing taking day-hikes in spectacular surroundings. We establish a base camp on a meadow at 4800 m and climb Yala Peak the next day.
The last 400m is full of 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). After the climb, we return to Dhunche via Syabrubesi and drive to Kathmandu.
