Yala Peak Climbing Trip is the best introduction to the Himalayan peak climbing and probably the safest way to have the ultimate climbing experience in Nepal. It is easiest and non-technical peak in Nepal which lies at 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 shortest time, however, it needs a slower pace for proper acclimatization.
Yala Peak Climbing trail takes you to the near the wild vicinity of Tibetan Plateau as it is located closer to the Tibetan border following the ridge of high mountains. Langtang valley stretches up to Tibetan border and Yala peak expedition provides 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, incredible landscapes along with the 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 is the profusion of attractions to explore on the way route. The camp lies at Karka, an alpine Yak gazing meadow. High above, the rocky south face of the peak and Yala Glacier on the south-west face is clearly seen from the base camp. The first section of ascending is quite difficult if there are snows on the approaches. The trail climbs up to the rocky ridge and makes several drops off and ascend before reaching the flat area. And comes the final section of Yala Peak climbing trip with 40m vertical snowy cliff leading up to the narrow snowy summit.
