Yala peak climbing is a popular trekking peak in Nepal. Yala peak ( 5732m) is easy and suited for anyone with trekking experience but good physical fitness is required. It is located at the north of Kathmandu lies in Langtang Himalaya range, near the border of Tibet at the elevation of 5732m. This is one of the lowest trekking peaks and the easiest destination in Nepal. Yala peak climbing offers superb Himalayan views including the Lantang Lirung, Dorje lakpa, Ganesh Himal, Naya kanga peak, gangchempo, hishapangma. Lantang valley trekking and yala peak climbing is one of the easy trekking route in Nepal and probably yala peak is easiest peak for climbing very closed from kathmandu valley. Our trip begins from Kathmandu to Dhunche, where we can reach only about 7 to 8 hours drive by bus and we follow the trekking route to Langtang valley and Kyangjin Gompa. Once we hike up to Kyangjin Gompa then we come back to same point after we turn to the north to see Yala Peak. We establish base camp on a meadow at 4800 m and climb Yala Peak the next day. 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). After summit the yala peak, our professional trekking guide will take to you either direct Dhunche or via Gosainkund pass trekking to Helambu.

You will continue through the village to your campsite about fifteen minutes beyond on the slopes below the village.

Once there was a Tibetan resettlement project here, but now it is a Nepalese army post though it has no permanent inhabitants. The trail continues to climb gently and the valley widens, passing a few temporary settlements used by herders who bring their livestock to graze in the high pastures during the summer months. There is a monastery which we can visit shortly before arriving at the village of Langtang, the headquarters of the Langtang National Park.
