Description

Just to the north of Kathmandu in the Langtang National Park is the 5500m Yala Peak situated in a beautiful valley of rich grazing pastures of the Tamang people. Yala peak is a part of the Langtang Himal range located in the central part of Nepal. The base camp of Yala Peak is Kyangjin Gompa (3749m/12,300 ft).

Yala Peak is a fantastic beginner’s mountaineering trip to one of Nepal’s easier trekking peaks. The climb is easy and suited for anyone with trekking experience. We start in Syabrubesi after a 5 hour drive from Kathmandu and spend five days hiking up the beautiful Langtang Valley to Kyanjin Gompa at 3800m. Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7246m) and we spend three days acclimatizing taking day-hikes in spectacular surroundings. We establish base camp on a meadow at 4800m and climb Yala Peak the next day. After an alpine start under stars we are on the summit by late morning from where we can see the very beautiful view of Tibet and Shisapangma which is the only 8000m mountain of Tibet. The last 400m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axe and rope. After the climb we return to Dhunche via Syabrubesi and drive to Kathmandu.
