Introduction to Yala Peak Climbing
Yala Peak Climbing is a trekking peak in the Langtang region of Nepal with an elevation of 5,520 meters. The Langtang region is close to the Tibet border and is also popular for the Helambu and Gosainkunda treks.
This peak is the smallest of all the trekking peaks in Nepal, which you can complete in just 10 days. Yala Peak Climbing is a popular adventure trip for mountain climbers in Nepal. This is an easy non-technical trekking peak compared to other trekking peaks in Nepal.
Yala Peak Climbing is so no prior climbing experience is required but previous outdoor experience and good fitness are recommended. It is suitable for travelers who want to trek as well as climb the peak.
You reach the base camp by walking through dense rhododendron forests and ancient ethnic settlements. The area is mainly inhabited by the Tamang ethnic group and during your stay in these villages you get a chance to learn about their religion, culture, traditions, and daily life.
Before reaching the base camp, you will rest at Kyanjing Gompa (3,800 m) as well as prepare for the ascent. On a rest day at Kyanjing Gompa, you can explore the Buddhist monastery and the Langshisa Glacier or climb Kyanjin Ri (4,350 m) for a more spectacular view of the surrounding snow-capped mountains.
View of Langtang Lirung, Lenpo Gang, Dorje Lakpa, Naya Khanga
The base camp offers stunning mountain views of Langtang Lirung (7,246 m), Lenpo Gang (7,083 m), Dorje Lakpa (6,988 m), Naya Khanga (5846 m), and Shishapangma (8013 m) on the Tibetan side. Our Climbing Sherpa Guide will give you short basic training and brief instructions at the base camp before peak climbing.
There are tea houses and cozy lodges along the trekking route but tented camps should be arranged at the base camp. Yala Peak Climbing requires a climbing permit which can get from the NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association) office. The mountain weather changes abruptly and is not in your favor so do not ignore the fact that insurance is mandatory.
The best seasons for Yala peak climbing are spring (March-May) and autumn (September – November). However, the winter months are also good if you prepare well for the cold weather. As most tourists come in the spring and autumn seasons, the routes may be a bit more crowded, so some climbers come during the winter (December to February) to avoid crowds.

Frequently asked questions about this trip
Have just returned from my fourth trip to Nepal and as always Odyssey Treks organized everything superbly. We visited Makalu relatively late in the season and were rewarded with empty trails and amazing weather. Karma was as entertaining, friendly, and informative as ever along with Ang Dawa Sherpa who together made the three weeks perfect.
They also organized a few days to Helambu at short notice as I had some time spare, all done easily and professionally. Thanks for the company both and I will be back again. I cannot recommend Odyssey highly enough as a genuinely friendly, locally based company that provides not only unforgettable experiences but also great service at a very reasonable cost.
I have just returned from the trip of a lifetime. Always wanted to visit and see the Himalayas and to have completed the trip with the most excellent hosts really made the trip come alive. Odyssey took care of everything and ensured that we experienced real Nepalese hospitality. We climbed up to 3700 meters, saw Ganesh Himal, experienced true excitement on the trek, ate superbly produced fresh food along the route..and above all met some amazing people. Thanks to Karma, Rinji, and our fantastic porters…without you guys it wouldn’t have happened!! All the best. Alex
