Yala Peak Climb Overview

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 should look no further than Yala Peak, which is 5,723 meters high. Stopping at the Yala Base camp (4500 meters) for a day and climbing to the summit gives you an actual mountain climbing experience.

The terrace farms, subtropical forest of rhododendrons, and alpine grassland of the high mountains complete your rejuvenating experience as Yala Peak climbers. Like all treks in the Langtang region, your Yala Peak climb 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. The trek to Kyangjing Gompa is the core of Yala Peak climbing, a natural and culturally peaceful experience. While most trekkers return from the Kyangjing Gompa, we continue heading north.

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

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 40 meters taking us to the summit are vertical and need 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 raise a prayer flag and cherish the hard journey.
