Island Peak Climbing Nepal
       Yala Peak Climbing  

Yala Peak Climbing

Yala Peak 5550m is a great option for those who want to experience standing on a Himalayan summit without taking risks or spending a lot of time acclimatizing.

Since Yala Peak is a non-technical climb, previous climbing experience is not required. Any physically fit person can safely summit this peak. The final scramble to the summit is fairly straightforward and only an additional 700m.

The Yala Peak is in the Langtang range. You reach the trailhead at Syaphrubesi after a spectacular 9 hour drive north of Kathmandu along the Trishuli River gorges. Along the journey you will get great views of Lantang Lirung, 7246m, Lenpo Gang, 7083m, Dorje Lakpa, 6990m, and the mighty Shishapangma, 8013m, in Tibet.

Yala Peak Climbing


After trekking for 4 days we will reach Kyanjing Gomba. We will spend one day to acclimatize in Kyanjing Gomba, and explore the glacier. On day 7 we will hike to the Base Camp, 4800m, of the Yala Peak and camp there in tents.

One day is spent at Base Camp so that we will have a solid acclimatization for a safe ascent to the elevation of 5500m. Early in the morning of the 9th day we summit Yala Peak and descend to Kyanjin Gomba for the night. The total trek takes 11 days.

Besides the thrill of peak climbing in the Langtang region, the trek to Yala Peak is perfect for nature lovers with its dense forests, and offers a cultural insight as well as you observe the traditional village life of the mountain tribes.

The Best Time to Climb Yala Peak

The best seasons for the Yala Peak Expedition are spring ( mid-March to May) and autumn (mid-September to November). Most of the tourists come during these seasons, so the routes may be a bit crowded. Some may prefer to avoid the crowds, and climb Yala Peak during the winter months (December to February), when the weather is crisp and cold and the views of the mountains are crystal clear. If you are well prepared for the cold weather, the winter is also a great time to climb.
