Yala Peak Climbing Nepal

Yala peak is located at the center part of Nepal in Langtang region. The Base Camp of Yala Peak is Kyangjin Gompa (3749m/12300 ft). Moreover Yala Peak is a fantastic beginner’s mountaineering trip, to one of Nepal’s easier trekking peaks. Just to the north of Kathmandu in the Langtang region, this 5500 meters peak is situated in a beautiful valley of rich grazing pastures and Tamang people. From Katmandu we drive to Dhunche or Syabrubesi, and after three-day’s trekking we can reached to the Yala Peak. After an alpine start under stars we are on the summit by late morning from where we can see the very beautiful view of Tibet and Shisapangma which is only the 8000m.

Yala Peak Climbing Nepal is a climbing trip in the Langtang valley north of Kathmandu. In addition to this 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 days 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 days 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 400m is full of 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.

Detailed Itinerary

Day 1

Arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport Kathmandu,

When you will land in Tribhuvan International Airport Kathmandu, check your hand bag, go to immigration office, make visa for your trip and get your suitcase, where outside our represented member shows you the board of our Company and your Name, transfer to the hotel. Our director meets you in the hotel and discusses about your whole trip. In the evening you will participate to experience typical Nepali food with cultural dance show.

Day 2

Kathmandu Cultural Tour & Permit Arrangement

Kathmandu is the historical and cultural heart of Nepal and has been a popular destination for tourists ever since Nepal opened its doors to visitors. The city presents a wonderful mix of Hinduism, Tibetan Buddhism and Western influence in the Valley. Patan and Bhaktapur, its two major neighboring cities bear immense historical, cultural and religious significance. There will be a full day guided tour to the famous and biggest Hindu shrine of Pashupatinath, the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal Bouddhanath, Old Kathmanu city as well as Swyambhunath.

Day 3

Kathmandu to Syabru Besi (1410m, 8hrs drive)

Looking at a map, Langtang seems quite close to Kathmandu, but in reality you still have to endure a jarring 8hr ride in a wheezing bus to get to Dhunche. About 45 minutes out of Kathmandu, you pass through the town of Kakani where there are great views of the Mustang, a grouping of peaks only partially visible from Kathmandu. Trisuli, on the river of the same name, is a busy bazaar town, and is often called Trisuli Bazaar. The river, which flows southwest, is very popular with rafting companies and you may see a group getting ready to put in here. For many years, this was the start of the Langtang trek, but there is now a rough road to Dhunche that bypasses the old trail and cuts the number of days necessary for this trek. It is a rough road to Dhunche, and during the rainy season there are frequent landslides, which may keep the road closed until sometime in mid-October. For part of the way the road clings to the edge of a steep mountain. Dhunche (1970m) is an attractive village with large stone houses. Here, there is a police checkpost where you must show your trekking permit and pay the entrance fee, for the Langtang National Park, which you\'ll be trekking through. This is more or less the \"gateway\" to the essentially long, narrow valley running parallel to the Tibetan border, and hemmed in by high, snow-capped peaks. From our tents, there are excellent views of Gheng (6581m) and LangtangLirung (7246m) to the north and Ganesh (7460m) to the west

Day 4

Syabru Besi to Lama Hotel (2480m, 7hrs walk)

Today\'s trail starts meandering through the cool deciduous forests of oak that cover the lower sections of the valley and climbs through massive stands of spruce, fir and blue pine. Towering walls close in and your paths will skirt precipitous drops, which fall into a silt-laden river below. It\'s a classic transition from temperate lowland forest to high-altitude Himalayan valley. Descend through the village of Syabru and continue down the ridge until you come to a trail to the east that drops sharply off the ridge and through a dense forest. Cross a bridge (1960m) over a tributary of the Langtang Khola and then climb for a short distance. The trail continues level for a ways before descending, still in forest, to the Langtang Khola. The trail follows the south bank of the river through a deep gorge with no views of the mountains, crossing another tributary in about an hour. In another hour from this tributary, cross yet another bridge (2050m) to the north bank of the Langtang Khola. The trail begins climbing up from the river at this point and in an hour, shortly after the trail levels off; you join the old Langtang trail (2380m) from Syarpagaon and Syabru besi. Another hour from this trail junction brings you to the Lama Hotel in the tiny village of Chongong (2400m). Like all of Langtang\'s guesthouses. At this point you start to become aware of the firm control the government exercises over the parks - with results that are often good, but sometimes questionable. On one hand, there are strict controls on tree-felling, and the park has remained mercifully free from the satellite dishes that dominate some over-trekked parts of Nepal.

Day 5

Lama Hotel to Chyamki (3430m, 6hrs walk)

A day further on the forest peters out and you start getting the first tantalizing glimpses of snow-capped peaks. From the Lama Hotel the trail climbs steadily to GhodaTabela with glimpses of Langtang Lirung (7246m) through the trees. At times the trail becomes very steep but only for short distances. Gradually the air becomes thinner and the climate colder. At GhodaTabela (3010m) the trail leaves the forest and a spectacular view of Langtang Lirung appears. GhodaTabela was once a Tibetan resettlement camp but is now n army post. There is a good lodge where we\'ll stop for lunch. Continue up the valley, leaving the forests behind, the trail ascends steadily up to Chamki near Langtang village, passing below a monastery about 30min beforehand. Langtang was an interesting Tibetan-style village with stone- walls enclosing houses and fields where you just might see your first yaks. In the massive earthquake of 2016, whole Langtang village was gone up because of avalanche where more than 3oo people died. Langtang was very beautiful village and it was the nice touristic destination before massive earthquake of Nepal. So there tea houses/lodges are under construction so today we live in small Chyamki village.

Day 6

Chyamki to Kyanjin Gumpa (3860, 4hrs walk)

You may notice that the valley above this point is U-shaped, which indicates that the valley was carved by a glacier. Below Langtang, the valley has the characteristic V-shape of a river-carved valley. Leaving Chyamki and Langtang, you ascend gradually to a chorten (a small Tibetan Buddhist stupa) behind which is a very long mani wall. The trail passes two small villages and the village widens. You cross several streams and a moraine before arriving at Kyanjin Gompa (3800m). Between Langtang and Kyanjin Gompa, the views just get better and better where you\'ll see YansaTsenji (6580m) and Kimshun (6750m) to the north and the Langtang Himal to the northwest. Since you\'ll probably arrive before lunch, you\'ll have time to do some exploring in the afternoon, though you may be experiencing some discomfort from the altitude. Alternatively, take a good rest and allow your body to acclimatize with the high altitude as much as possible to be fully-prepared for more ascending during the next day.

Day 7

Ascent Kyanjin Ri (4800m) back to Kyangin Gumpa (3860m, 5-6 hrs walk)

A day hike farther up the valley past the airstrip will provide more spectacular views that include Langtang Lirung (7246m), Ganchenpo (6400m), LangshisaRi (6320m), DorjeLakpa (6700m), Lenpo Gang (7100m), and Urkinmang (6170m). Four walk to the east of KyanjinGompa from the village is 5000m TsergoRi. If you start early in the morning and are well-acclimatized, you should be able to climb this peak and return to Kyanjin Gompa in 1 long day. The reward for climbing to the prayer flags on its summit is a magnificent view of the 7246m Langtang Lirung, the mountain that dominates the valley. There are numerous alternatives side trips. The surrounding area, especially to the north, is vast and has many smaller, uninhabited valleys - ideal for high-altitude, backcountry trekking. Several of the more moderate local peaks are quite climbable and provide breathtaking panoramic views of mountains in Tibet, including the 8027m SisaaPangma. If you have the inclination and the right equipment provided by us, the upper Langtang Valley can also be used as a base for glacier exploration.

Day 8

Kyanjin Gompa to Yala Peak Base Camp

To reach Yala Base Camp you trek along the rocky glacier trail. You will be quite taken back by the views of Ganchenpo, Naya Kang, Tserko Ri, Yala peak and others. For today the accommodation will be tented camp and food will be cooked by our professional camp cook.

Day 9

Summit Yala Peak & return to Base Camp

Today is our main adventure day, an early start in the morning to climb Yala peak depending on weather conditions. At the summit of Yala peak, you will be stunned by the panoramic views of Shishapangma, Dorje Lakpa, Ganchenpo, Naya Kang, Tserko Ri, Langtang Lirung and many Tibetan mountains. Day 10: Yala Base Camp to Kyanjin Gumpa.

Day 10

Yala Base Camp to Kyanjin Gumpa (3860m 5 hrs walk)

After having successful climb of Yala Peak, we walk down to Kyanjin Gumpa.

Day 11

Kyanjin Gumpa to Lama Hotel (2480m, 7hrs descend)
