Yala Peak Climbing 5,550m - 14 Days

Yala peak

Experience the amazing Yala peak climbing in Nepal


Yala Peak serves as an excellent introductory peak climbing trip in the Himalayas due to its relatively simple and non-technical climb. Along with the Langtang Valley trek, this is a great holiday trek for those with limited time.

No mountaineering experience is required to climb Yala Peak. Reaching the summit of Yala Peak is relatively easier than other trekking peaks. This is the perfect peak for beginners to build up their climbing skills. Yala Peak offers you a spectacular view of mountains such as Langtang Lirung (7246 m), Sishapagma (8027 m), and more.

The Yala Peak climbing trip takes you to the wonderland of Langtang region, combining the beauty of nature and culture to give you a delightful experience. The magic of mighty glaciers, the beauty of dramatic landscapes, the spiritual bliss of ancient monasteries, and the integrity of Tamang culture and lifestyle are sure to delight you.

Our trek starts from Syabrubesi and passes through the Langtang Valley to Lama Hotel. And you continue your walk through forested hills and pastures until you reach Canjin Gompa. And stop by Kyanjin Gompa for customization. In the following days, you will go up Yala to reach the base camp and reach the summit to complete the adventure. After a successful ascent of Yala Peak, you retrace your steps along the familiar trail and return to Kathmandu.

Apart from the base camp, you will stay in tea house lodges with minimum essential facilities. For the duration of the climb, it will be tented accommodation. We also have a climbing course at the base camp before the actual climb.
