Yala Peak Climbing Introduction

This Yala peak climbing offers something merely than trekking, the best thrill of introductory peak climbing experience in the Himalayas. Therefore, it is best for those who want to stand on a Himalayan summit but have little time. The climb itself is non-technical, and therefore, no prior climbing experience is necessary. It is an exhilarating two-week adventure trek through Langtang National Park. Completing in a beautiful peak, but non-technical. The Yala peak is renowned for being an excellent point of view that offers trekkers an overwhelming experience of being high up in the remote Himalayas with few people around. The closest trekking mountain from Kathmandu is Yala Mountain climbing.

The Yala peak is one of Nepal’s simpler trekking ranges in the north of Kathmandu in the beautiful area of the Langtang valley. This peak of 5500 meters doesn’t require mountain experience. From Kathmandu, we travel to Dhunche or Syabru Bensi, then three days of trekking up the valley. It is quick to get to Langtang, and no internal flights are involved. It is a seven-hour road ride from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi which is, at the beginning of the Langtang Valley. From there, it’s fun acclimatization walk up the valley and then another trip to the base camp, and an early start to climb to the summit and get back safely in daylight hours back down again. To help us acclimatize, we will be exploring the Langshisa glacier, setting up a high camp at 4800 meters from where we’re making our summit bid. After an alpine start under the stars, we are late in the morning on the plateau, with some spectacular views over Tibet and Shisapangma (the only 8000-meter mountain in Tibet).

Detailed Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu

He will provide some details on the trek to Yala Peak Climbing.

Day 02: Spare and Arrangement Day

Before moving towards the Everest base camp trek, you’ll have an extra day in Kathmandu. You will spend the day as you wish. A day will suffice to visit some of the famous heritage sites, and hotels, in Kathmandu. You can also shop for some personal trekking equipment such as medication, Sunscreen, and Trekking Shorts.

Day 03: Drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi (2200m) /8 hrs.

We head out early in the morning to Syaprubeshi on a nearby deluxe bus. The approximately 7-8-hour journey begins from Kathmandu across a beautiful hilly forest area on the PasangLhamu Highway to the North-West. With the Botekoshi River flowing from the North-West to the South-East, the city dwells at the confluence of the Bhotekoshi River and the Langtang River. The place is becoming more of a tourist and an economic hub in the area. Here we spend the night.

Day 04: Trek from Syabrubesi To Lama Hotel (2,470m/8,110ft) – 6hrs

Your Langtang Gosaikunda Trek begins from Syabru Besi early in the morning. You’ll be going towards the Lama Hotel in the beginning. The Tibetan-inspired lifestyle, rhododendron wood, can be observed on the way. Along the way, where villagers sell the tea for the trek, you can see the little settlements and give the night’s stay. You will then hit bamboo to pair. Bamboo is the location you’ll be getting lunch here before going to the lama hotel. Because of the constant climbing, it is an arduous trek in the last quarter. The trail is full of stinging nettles, thick trees, and a few other herbs. You live at the Lama hotel for a night.

Day 05: Trek from Lama hotels to Langtang Village (3,430m/11,255ft) – 6 hrs

You’ll have a trek toward Langtang Village the next morning. The trekking duration is 5-6 hours. A tranquil hike through the rhododendron and pine forest leads to a stunning, impressive village called Langtang. You could witness the Sunrise View from the hill before you start the trek. You will watch an incredible sight of Langtang living at Langtang village in the late afternoon. You’ll be at a lodge in the hamlet of Langtang that night.

Day 06: Trek from Langtang village to Kyangjin Gompa (3,865m/12,675ft) -3 hrs

From the village of Langtang, you can begin your trek to Gompa Kyanjing. The time of the hiking is just 2-3 hours. Today, it is a unique trek crossing the Langtang villages, Mundo, and some other small settlements. The trail is not that difficult, and you can see the yaks to Kyanjin Gompa since there are pastures everywhere along the trekking trails. From Kyanjing Gompa, you can enjoy a close-up view of Mt Ganchempo and Mt Langtang Lirung. Overnight at Kyangjin Gompa.

Day 07: Acclimatization Day

Acclimatization during hiking in the Himalayas is a necessary activity. So, the village of Kyanjing would be the perfect stopover spot. The kyanjing is one of the Langtang region’s main settlements and is rich in cultural values. If you want a rest, you can observe the beautiful paintings at Kyanjing Gompa, which are centuries old. We do have two choices to acclimatize and take in the picturesque view of the mountains. We can go to the Kyanjin Ri, or from this point of view, we can go to TserkoRi (5450m), where you can see a magnificent Himalayan range. It is healthy grooming training. Overnight at Kyangjin Gompa.

Day 08: Trek from Kyanging Gompa to Yala peak Base camp (4400 m)-5 to 6 hrs

The next day early in the morning, after breakfast and arranging and buying needed stuff, you’ll go to base camp in Yala peak. To get to Yala Peak the trek needs some climbing experience. You can see the breathtaking view of the Himalayan Langtang ranges as you incline. The mountains encircle you. Ganchenpo, Naya Kang, Tserko Ri, and Yala peak are the mountains you can see from the base camp at Yala peak. Overnight at Yala Peak Base Camp.

Day 09: Climb Yala Peak (5732 m) and trek down back to Kyangjin Gompa- 8 hrs

Today you will reach a peak of Yala. The guide takes you up to the top. Because it doesn’t require advanced climbs you don’t need to worry about it, but there will be security precautions. There’ll be some ropes for the guide. You are going to join him and ascend to the top at Yala. From the top of the Yala peak, you can see a stunning view of the mountains. For such a highly elevated location, various mountains can be visible. We must descend to Kyanjin Gompa. Stay at Kyanjin Gompa after ascending the Yala peak.

Day 10: Trek back to Lama Hotel (2500 m)- 6 hrs,

The next day after breakfast, you are going down to the hotel lama. If you’re staying in the Kyanjin, getting to the lama hotel takes quite a long time. But if you are in Langtang, then getting to the Lama hotels is shorter. You are going to follow the same tracks. Overnight at Lama Hotel.

Day 11: Trek back to Syabrubesi

Today you will leave Lama Hotel and return to Syabrubesi. The trek is comparatively fun as we will go down through the thick, dense forests to Syabrubesi through the bank of the river. Stay overnight at Syabrubesi Hotels.

Day 12: Back to Kathmandu
