Yala Peak Climbing is located at Langtang Region and is graded to class F (easy) on the Alpine Grading System due to its easy climb to the top. However, the climbing conditions can vary on the basis of the starting point or depend on the weather. The peak serves as a warm climb in order to accommodate to the conditions of Naya Kanga peak, located on the opposite side of the valley. Still, the summit gives a panoramic view of Shishapangma, if the weather conditions are favorable. The route consists of base camp at the end and a high camp further down the trail within a half day trek.
There are no prerequisites required in mountaineering in order to climb the Yala Peak. Anyone with little experience in trekking can easily climb the peak. In some places, hands and axes are required to subjugate the climb, but nothing too dangerous or risky. The peak is located north of Kathmandu in the serene Langtang valley. Yala Peak is one of the mountains located between the border of Nepal and Tibet, separated by a ridge.
Yala Peak is a perfect site to adore the beautiful Himalayan ranges covered with snow throughout the horizon. The Himalayas within the site lies in Nepal and Tibet region and also offers a view of Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal, Naya Kanga Peak, Ganchenpo, and Shishapangma etc. First, we head to the Yala peak base camp from Kathmandu by driving to Syabrubesi followed by a trek up the valley for 5 days. Kyanjin Gompa is located below Langtang Lirung (7246m). This site serves as an acclimatization place and we performed a three-day hike within the surroundings in order to adapt ourselves to the weather. On our way, we explore the Langshisha glacier and establish a high camp at 4800 m. This high camp is our resting site before ascending to the summit. After reaching Yala Peak, we will take you back to Syabrubesi or Gosainkund by trekking to Helambu. Trekkers can also choose to make for Langtang Ganja La pass after climbing the Yala Peak.
