Yala Peak is considered a trekking peak by the Nepal mountaineering association and is a relatively simple, non-technical climb. From the summit we can see Shishapangma (8046 m) and the fluted Gangchempo (6388 m).
Yala peak 5732m is a popular trekking peak in Langtang region. Yala peak is easy and suited for anyone with trekking experience but good physical fitness is required.
Yala peak climbing trip is in the Langtang region which is north of Kathmandu. We start in Syabrubesi after an 8/9 hours drive from Kathmandu and spend five days hiking up the beautiful Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa at 3800m. Yala peak climbing is combined with Langtang trek. Langtang area in itself is a good choice for all trekkers. They remain unforgettably beautiful and culturally rich.
The trails are less crowded and the people are friendly. Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7246 m). We established a base camp on a meadow at 5033 m and climbed Yala Peak the next day. The last 400m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axes and rope. The summit is renowned for being an excellent vantage point from Langtang Lirung, Dorje lakpa, Ganesh Himal, Naya kanga peak, Gangchempo, Shishapangma (8013m), the highest mountain in Tibet.
