Yala Peak

A fantastic two week trekking through the Langtang National Park in Nepal culminating in an ascent of the spectacular but non-technical Yala Peak. The summit is renowned for being an excellent viewpoint. The feeling is of being high up in the remote Himalayas and with few people around, and without experiencing too much technical difficulty.

We will be in the heart of the Himalaya with awe inspiring views across into Tibet and out over Nepal. Langtang is the closest national park to Kathmandu, requiring a drive to get there, and the valley is famous for its flora, aswell as beautiful Himalayan peaks.

We drive to the Park with 4x4 vehicles and then trekking and possible horse riding through the Park using lodges and porters with a Sherpa guide. Tents are used for the high camp at Yala Kharka. The terrain is mountainous but not precipitous, with forest, terraced hill slopes and valley hikes leading to high pastures and eventually the moraine of the glaciers and the peaks. The route passes through settlements and villages, although this is a less populated and visited region than Khumbu or Annapurna.

Yala Peak is close to the Tibetan border and north-east of Kyangin Gompa (3870 m) in the Langtang Valley. The mountain can be climbed in two days from Kyanjin Gompa with using a high camp at Yala Kharka (4900 m). However you can also climb it in a single long day with a pre-dawn start and with good acclimatisation. It is one of the easier trekking peaks to climb, and sometimes climbed as a preparation for Ganja La Chuli (5844 m).
