MT YALA PEAK CLIMBING

Mt Yala Peak is a popular trekking peak located in the Langtang region of Nepal. At an elevation of 5,520 meters, it offers a challenging yet rewarding climbing experience, along with stunning views of the Himalayas. The climb starts with a trek through dense forests, small villages, and beautiful valleys until reaching the Kyanjin Gompa, a Buddhist monastery and village. Here, climbers can rest and acclimatize to the altitude while exploring the surrounding areas, including the Langtang Glacier and viewpoint for stunning views of the mountains. From Kyanjin Gompa, the trail leads to the base camp of Yala Peak, where climbers prepare for the summit day.

The climb to the summit takes around six to eight hours and requires technical skills such as the use of crampons, ice axes, and ropes. From the summit, climbers can enjoy breathtaking panoramic views of the Himalayas. The descent back to Kyanjin Gompa and further to Syabrubesi is via the same route, giving climbers the opportunity to enjoy the scenery and culture of the Langtang region.
