Yala Peak Climbing (5500m.)

Yala Peak climbing is a fantastic beginner's mountaineering trip. It is an easier trekking peak in the Langtang Region of Nepal. 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 Kathmandu, you drive to Dhunche or Syabrubesi and after three-day's trekking you can reach Yala Peak.
 
Yala peak is a part of the Langtang Himal which is located in the central part of Nepal. Walking through the dense forest and traditional ethnic settlements you reach the wonderful base camp of Yala peak. The base camp of Yala Peak is Kyangjin Gompa (3749m/12300 ft).
 
This climbing peak is one of Nepal’s easier climbing peaks and is often climbed along with its neighbour Naya Kanga. From the summit of Yala Peak you get uninterrupted spectacular views of, Langtang Lirung(7246m), Lenpo Gang(7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6966m) and the mighty Shishapangma (8013m) on the Tibetan side which is made up of three sister peaks quite similar in height with two pinnacles with their respective height of 8008m and 7970m sit 200m and 400m to the northwest of the main peak. 
 
The height of Yala is 5500. Yala peak climbing does not require mountaineering experience. Yala peak is not technically difficult and provides good acclimatization.
