Trip Code: PYP
Yala Peak is one of the popular non-technical trekking peaks located in the Langtang region of Nepal. This is one of Nepal’s easier peaks and is often climbed along with its neighbor - Naya Kanga. From the summit of Yala Peak, one can enjoy spectacular views of Langtang Lirung, Lenpo Gang, Dorje Lakpa (6966m) and the mighty Shishapangma (8013m) (Tibet side) which is made up of three sister peaks quite similar in elevation with two pinnacles to the northwest of the main peak. From the summit, one can see some amazing views of Tibet as well.
Yala peak is categorized as Grade easy as per the Alpine Grading system. However, this grade can vary from place to place depending on snow conditions. The peak is seldom climbed or is used as a warm-up for Naya Kanga towering on the opposite side of the Langtang valley. If you are lucky with the weather, the summit offers grand views of Mount Shishapangma. This peak would be a most suitable for a “first-time" climber in the Himalayas. It offers both adventure trekking and peak climbing in the Langtang region within a limited amount of time. The route involves a base camp at the end of the trail and a high camp a further half day's trek beyond base camp. Prior climbing experience is not necessary to summit Yala peak but a reasonably good level of fitness is a must.
From Kathmandu, we begin our trip to Yala peak with a 8- hr long drive to Syabrubesi in the Langtang region. Next day we walk through a dense forest and traditional settlements via the Lama hotel, Langtang village, and Kenjin Gompa, until we reach the base camp of Yala peak. After summiting the peak we walk down to Syabrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu.
