Yala Peak Climbing Trip is the best introduction to Himalayan peak climbing and probably the safest way to have the ultimate climbing experience in Nepal. It is the easiest and most non-technical peak in Nepal which lies in the Langtang region, just north of the Kathmandu valley. Standing at an elevation of 5,500m, Yala Peak climbing offers wonderful views of Langtang Lirung, Naya Kang, Ganesh Himal, Shishapangma, and Gangchempo.
Yala Peak climbing, the shortest trekking peak in Nepal, can be done in the shortest time, however, it needs a slower pace for proper acclimatization. Yala Peak Climbing trail takes you to the wild vicinity of the Tibetan Plateau as it is located closer to the Tibetan border following the ridge of high mountains. Langtang Valley stretches up to the Tibetan border and the Yala Peak expedition provides a unique opportunity to experience a culture that is greatly influenced by Tibetan heritage.
As the mountaineering trip to Yala Peak climbing goes through the Langtang National Park, the trail route offers spectacular natural scenery, and incredible landscapes along with a profusion of alpine wild species like Snow Leopard and Red Panda. The trekking trail to Yala Peak Base Camp, 4,800m is not strenuous and there are profusion of attractions to explore on the way route.
The camp lies at Karka, an alpine Yak grazing meadow. High above, the rocky south face of the peak and Yala Glacier on the southwest face is clearly seen from the base camp. The first section of ascending is quite difficult if there is snow on the approaches. The trail climbs up to the rocky ridge and makes several drops off and ascends before reaching the flat area. And comes the final section of the Yala Peak climbing trip with a 40m vertical snowy cliff leading up to the narrow snowy summit.
The best season for Yala Peak Climbing is (Mid-March to May) and (Mid-September to early December). If you prefer to avoid crowds, it is also possible to go climbing in Yala Peak during winter. The weather is quite crispy and cold but the mountain views are crystal clear.
