Yala Peak (5,732m) is an easy and adventure climbing peak in Nepal. It is located north side of Kathmandu in Langtang region. Yala peak separated the border of Nepal and Tibet just by a ridge. Langtang region is close to the Tibet border and popular for Gosainkunda and Helambu treks as well. One of the less technical trekking peaks of Nepal, which is suited for anyone with trekking experience but well physical fitness is required. This 5,732m peak does not require mountaineering experience before. The trips offer a beautiful introduction of mountaineering in the Himalaya Nepal.

The program begins with seven hours drive from Kathmandu. And after, we start the trek through the sub-tropical jungle, then a dense forest of Oak and pine before the valley opens out into alpine meadows and yak pastures. We trek up to Yala base camp (4,800m) for summiting the peak. We take a rest at Kyanjing Gompa (3,800m) for acclimatization while heading to the Yala Base camp. Kyanjing Gompa lies in an elongated amphitheater surrounded by high snow-capped peaks. Kyanjing Gompa provides you spectacular views of Langtang Lirung (7,246 m), Kimshing Peak (6,500m), Langtang glacier. The view from the summit is breathtaking – magnificent snow-capped peaks all around and views across to the mountains of Tibet, including Shishapangma (8,013 m) and Gangchempo (6,388 m). After the successful completion of the Yala summit, you will be returned either direct to Dhunche or via Gosainkund pass trekking to Helambu.
