Yala Peak (5,723 meters) is a completely underrated, thrilling peak climb in the Langtang region of Nepal. The trail begins with an amazing journey by foot through the scenic Langtang Valley, rich in culture and wildlife. When it’s time for the climb, feel your adrenaline pump as you hang onto the almost perpendicular wall of rock and ice. Imagine yourself on your hands and legs, making the last steps toward the summit of Yala Peak. Once there, you look out at the land of mountains and nothing more. You will truly feel as though you are at the top of the world when you reach Yala Peak.
Compared to other climbing peaks in Nepal, Yala Peak is not specifically high in altitude. However, it is rather technical, making it very adventurous. Guided by our experienced team, though, you will have no technical issues making the ascent.
As mentioned, the excursion begins with a lovely journey up and into the Langtang Valley. Meet villagers, many of them who belong to the kindhearted Tamang ethnic group. The villages, combined with their terraced hills and flowing streams, make for a photogenic scenery.
Upon arriving at Kyanjin Gompa, we notice we have arrived into the high alpine area. Little life can exist this high up. There is a monastery in the village, which is awesome to explore. Also, it’s important to rest for a day to acclimatize and explore the area, either by trekking to Tserko Ri (4,985 meters), Kyanjin Ri (4,773 meters), or Langshisha Kharka. Enjoy this day, while your anticipation for the climb begins to grow.
The next day we make a tented base camp at 4800 meters. The next morning, weather permitting, we make our memorable ascent. An incredible mountain panorama lies right before our eyes. The view might just literally take your breath away. Take some moments at the top to soak it all in. This moment only comes once in your life. It took a lot of effort to arrive here, so savour these precious moments. Take some photos to look back on, though the best camera is your own eyes.
Head back to Syabrubesi with a full heart and fulfilled spirit. A memorable adventure deserves a memorable celebration, so we celebrate in Syabrubesi and/or Kathmandu!
