Your Chance To Edit

Yala Peak is one of Nepal's easier trekking peaks, just to the north of Kathmandu in the beautiful Langtang valley region, this 5500 meters peak does not require mountaineering experience. Climbing Yala Peak (5732m) and trek through Langtang is one of the easiest, romantic, wonderful and adventurous climbing peak and trek in Nepal. Prior climbing experience is not required though, previous outdoor experience and average level of fitness is recommended.

Description Edit

Usually climbed in 2 days from Kyanjin Gompa (3900m), camping at Yala Kharka (4600m). It's also possible to do it in one day, without camping, but it's a long day with a pre-dawn start.

Climb is relatively easy and non-technical, but at some places you have to use your hands, and ice axes are useful but not essential. The last 15 meters to the top is a steep rock pyramid, hands definitely required, and 1500m to fall if you are really unlucky.

Location Edit

Yala peak is located north from Kathmandu in Langtang Himalaya range near border of Tibet at the elevation of 5732 meters.

Getting there Edit

Arrival in Kathmandu, drive to Syabrubesi (1,460 m), trek to Sherpa-Gaon (2, 350 m) - Thyangsyap village (3, 307m) - Kyanjin Gompa (3,749 m) - Yala Peak Base Camp (4,400 m)
