Overview

Yala Peak is a relatively small mountain located along the border between Nepal and China (Tibet). It rises up from Langtang Valley and is part of the Langtang Himalayan range.

Yala peak has been categorized as a trekking peak, however a permit is needed to climb the mountain. The permit issued by Nepal Mountaineering Association.

.Yala peak is approached from Kyangin Gompa (3800m), which is used as its base camp. The mountain can be climbed in two days from Kyanjin Gompa. The summit affords magnificent views of Langtang Lirung (7,246m) Dorje Lakpa (6,990m), Gangchempo (6,388m) and even Sishapangma (8,027m) in Tibet (China).

Yala peak is a non-technical mountain so it is relatively easy to climb. The mountain is good for novice climbers and beginners though basic Ice walking and climbing is a must. Mountaineering skills such as using an ice axe setting ropes and crampons will be needed.

You will be trekking through the Langtang National Park which is home to red panda, black bear and snow leopard. The Buddhist culture and lifestyle of indigenous Tamang people will be an added attraction.

Accomodations, Meals & Group

ACCOMMODATIONS

All accommodations for the Yala Peak Climbing are on a twin-sharing basis. The lodges and tea houses have been selected by the Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks after personal inspection. We look at the conditions of the inns, local hygiene, quality of food, type of service and more.

We offer two types of accommodations on this peak climbing. In Kathmandu you will stay three nights at a 3-Star Hotel (could be changed as per your requirement) and during the peak climbing you will stay in standard tea houses and camp. These places have pleasant, unheated rooms and wooden beds with foam mattresses.

All rooms are double occupancy, but you can request a single occupancy room for an additional fee, which will be available only during the trekking trail. However, sometimes single rooms are not available in some places, depending upon local conditions. We do work to provide the best possible options when trekking in the High Himalayas.

MEALS

Food will vary between typical Nepali in the mountains. In Kathmandu and Pokhara there are far more choices, which include Indian, Continental, Italian, Tibetan and more. The city areas offer everything from good steaks and burgers to apple pie and pizza.

Nepali food is nutritious, and ranges from our traditional Daal/Bhat and Momo to fantastic breads, fruits and more. The cooking is wholesome and the food is tasty during the trek trail too.

GROUP

For the Yala Peak Climbing there will be a license holder sherpa climbing guide and porters for carrying luggage. This arrangement ensures that if anyone in the group is sick the trip can still go on as planned. However, Asia Buddhist Tours & Treks can run this peak climbing for groups of any size.

Usually, we have found that the maximum number of climbers in any group is 12 people
