Yala peak is a part of the Langtang Himal which lies just to the north of Kathmandu in the Langtang region. The base camp of Yala Peak is Kyangjin Gompa (3749m/12300 ft). Yala Peak, considered one of Nepal’s easier trekking peaks, is a fantastic beginner’s mountaineering trip. This beautiful peak affords surprising views of Shishapang 8012 m, which is the only solo mountain in Tibet with a height above 8000 m.
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 3800 m. Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7246 m) and we spend three days acclimatizing taking day-hikes in spectacular surroundings. The last 400 m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axe and rope.
