Yala peak climbing in Nepal
Peak climbing in Nepal
Yala peak climbing is a part if the Langtang Himal which is located at the centerl part of Nepal. The peak is seldom climbed in it’s own right, often being used as a warm-up for Naya Kanga on the opposite side of the valley.
The summit gives surprisingly good views of Shishapangma if you are lucky enough with the weather.
The climb is easy and suited for anyone with trekking experience. We start in Syabrubesi after a 5 hour drive from Kathmandu and spend five Day hiking up the beautiful Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa at 3800 m.
Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7246 m) and we spend three Day acclimatizing taking day-hikes in spectacular surroundings. We establish base camp on a meadow at 4800 m and climb Yala Peak the next day. The last 400 m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axe and rope.
From the summit we can see Shishapangma (8046 m) and the fluted Gangchempo (6388 m). After the climb we return to Dhunche via Syabrubesi and drive to Kathmandu.
Its summit is located at 5,500 m above sea level, offering a view of Shishapangma, 8,013 m (26,289 ft). A giant landslide occurred near Yala Peak called Tsergo Ri.
Nepal Mountaineering Association considers this peak to be a trekking peak, and it is relatively simple and non-technical. In order to climb Yala Peak, one must pass through Langtang National Park. This peak and surrounding area are home to Rhododendrons, Snow leopards, and Red Pandas. In order to adjust to the altitude and climate, climbers go to Kyanjin Monastery at 3,900 meters (12,800 feet). As the climbers become acclimatized, they move towards Yala Kharka 4,600 meters (15,100 feet).
