Yala Peak (5732 m) is one of the most fantastic ‘trekkers climbing heavens’ which is located
19 miles north of Kathmandu in the Langtang region. Yala Peak Climbing is widely popular for newbie
adventure climbers and hardcore trekkers as well who like to have a taste of the mighty
Himalayas. Yala peak stands right next to the Tibet border along with the magnificent view of Mt.
Shishapangma(8046 m), Langtang Lirung (7246 m) , Gang Chempo (6388 m) and Dorje
Lakpa. In fact, one of the border mountain ridges of Yala Peak is connected with Tibet. Yala
peak climbing is semi-technical in terms of the gears used and is suited for everyone with
the right spirit. Having good physical fitness and trekking experiences are a bonus. The
nearby Tserko Ri (4984 m) and Kanjing Ri (4600 m) are perfect acclimatization spots before
ascending to the Yala Peak in Nepal.
The trip starts early in the morning with a scenic drive from the central bus station with terraced
farming fields with thatched roofed typical villages along the way. Yala peak climbing
trekking route ascends gradually through forests which host a variety of rhododendron and
oak trees. There is plenty of time to acclimatize and get yourself ready for the major life
experience. Our trail passes along Tamang and Tibetan settlements with their cultural
diversities and living styles. The monasteries are surrounded with beautiful colorful prayer
flags which lets you into a roller-coaster of spirituality with huge meadows, glaciers and
wholly uninhabited Langtang around you. Our journey to Yala Peak climbing initiates from
Kanjing Gompa (3850 m) only to settle our camps in a meadow at 4800 meters. 400 meters
before the summit, hard ice starts to form and we will need to submit using our climbing
gears namely Ice-axe, crampons, and rope. We return to the Base Camp and then back
again to Kanjing gompa the same day. Kanjing Gompa is also considered a crossroad for
the Langtang, Gosaikunda and Helambu Trek.
The other option can be an alternative route via Lauribinayak Pass (4900 m) to extend your
trek entirely. Langtang is less advertised commercially compared to Everest and Annapurna
