Yala Peak Climbing Overview

On the way to Yala peak summit from Yala base camp

Looking for the perfect adventure in the mountains?

If you are planning to learn mountain climbing in Nepal, and don’t know where to start, you shall look no further than Yala Peak at 5,723 meters. Stopping at the Yala Base camp (4500 meters) for a day and then climbing to the summit gives you a true mountain climbing experience.

The terrace farms, subtropical forest of Rhododendrons, and alpine grassland of the high mountains complete your rejuvenating experience. Like all treks in the Langtang region, your Yala Peak climbing also commences with a drive from Kathmandu Valley to Dunche.

Wandering through the typical Tamang and Sherpa villages of Kathmandu’s north, we get from Lama Hotel to Langtang village. Trek to Kyangjing Gompa is the core of Yala peak climbing, a natural ad culturally peaceful experience. While most trekkers return from the Kyangjing Gompa, we keep on heading further north.

Strolling in a path full of colourful prayer flags, we walk close to the Himalayas of Nepal, heading for Yala Peak. We settle in Yala base camp for a night and conquer the peak on the second day. After the victory, we retract our route back to Kathmandu.



Day 01: Arrival

As soon as you land at the airport in Kathmandu, our team will already be waiting for you. You will be welcomed by Himalayan masters and transferred to the hotel in Thamel. In the evening, we shall gather for the briefing session. Shopping and packing of Yala peak climbing gears will be done as per the guide’s instruction and we shall end the day with a welcome dinner.

Day 02: Drive to Syabrubesi

Altitude: 1,600 meters

Walking time: 7-8 hours

Our plan is to quickly move towards Kathmandu’s north so that, we start getting closer to the Himalayas for the Yala peak trek. After the morning breakfast in the hotel itself, we start driving in the outskirt of Kathmandu. Diving on the bank of the Trishuli River for a while, we stop at Trishuli Bazaar for a moment.

Then, on a rather rugged mountain road, we drive down to Dhunche and to Syabrubensi. Syabrubensi, a small town at the beginning of Langtang has riverside hot springs and makes a wonderful stop for our first night.

Day 06: Exploration Day

We take one more day at Kyangjin Gompa to explore the beauty of Langtang and acclimatize ourselves to the increasing altitude before heading for the Yala peak trek. The broad landscape and alpine vegetation of the higher lands make completely different views for the area. We also get to witness the clear panorama of the mountains and other nearby glaciers.

Our plan for the day is to visit the local monastery and join the prayers with the nun. We shall also visit the cheese factory and enjoy some delicious yak cheese. Lastly, we might hike to Langshisa Kharka or head for the TserkoRi (5450m) viewpoint for an even more adventurous trip.

Day 07: Trek to Yala peak Base camp

Day 08: Trek to Summit Yala Peak and back to Kyangjin Gompa

Altitude 5732 m

Walking time: 8 hrs

Ready for the most exciting day of your Yala peak Itinerary? We leave our camp quite early in the morning and start the climb to Yala Peak. Our plan is the get to the summit before noon so that the weather is still stable. Since the final 40 meters will be the most challenging one, make sure that you listen to your guide well.

Once we get to the top, we can witness the mighty Himalayas ranges such as Shishapangma, Naya Kang, Tserko Ri, Dorje Lakpa, Ganchenpo, Langtang Lirung, and others. We stop here for a brief time, capturing some of the best pictures.

Then, we slowly retrace our descent on the south face getting to the base camp in about two hours. After collecting our bags from the base camp, we start walking back to the Kyangjin Gompa for the night’s stay. It’s high time to celebrate the victory.

Day 09: Additional Day

Climbing to Yala Summit is quite technical. If the weather is bad or the crew member isn’t filling well, we might have to stop at the base camp for an additional day. So, this day of Yala peak Itinerary has been reserved for such an unfortunate situation. 

Meal : Breakfast Lunch Dinner

Day 10: Trek To Lama Hotel

Altitude: 3,430 meters

Walking time: 6 hours

After another beautiful night in the Kyangjin Gomba, it’s now time to say goodbye to the mountains.

Yala Peak Climbing Difficulty And Fitness

The initial trail leading to the Yala Peak Base Camp at 4800m is not too difficult. This route has been used by trekkers to the Langtang valley for many years and remains one of the easiest trekking routes in Nepal. From the Yala base camp, the stunning Yala glacier and its tough rocky south face both keep us excited. The path then goes along the rock ridge and to the boulders.

The final 40m taking us to the summit is vertical and needs technical support. However, since the Himalayas master’s expert guide will be there to assist you, one can overcome every difficulty and get to the top quickly. If the trail has snow, it tends to be more difficult. To celebrate the victory at the top, we take a prayer flag and cherish the hard journey.
