Yala Peak Climbing

Trip Overview

Yala Peak Climbing (5732m/18805ft) is one of Nepal's famous; peaks, located just north of Kathmandu in the stunning Langtang valley region. It has unrivaled natural beauty as well as a diverse range of cultural riches. The Langtang region is home to over seventy glaciers of various sizes, the Langtang and Ganesh Himal Mountain ranges, and high-altitude lakes such as Gosainkunda, Parvatikunda, Bhairavkunda, and Dudhkunda. The Tamang community of Tibetan origin is the dominant class in the area. Their culture has been around for hundreds of years. Their rich Himalayan heritage is reflected in their traditionally built stone houses, beautifully carved wooden porches, unique dress, and craftsmanship.

The region, which extends east-west, was previously a restricted area. Langtang Lirung (7,227m/23710ft), the highest peak in the area, dominates the area about 30 kilometers north of Kathmandu. On the way to Yala Peak, one can see stunning views of the Tibetan side of Lantang Lirung (7227m/23710ft), Lenpo Gang (7083m/23238ft), Dorje Lakpa (6990 m/22933ft), and the mighty Shishapangma (8027 m/26335ft).

After having morning breakfast, we will head towards for the sightseeing around Kathmandu which includes Pashupatinath Temple and Bouddhanath Stupa.

Pashupatinath Temple: It is a well-known Hindu temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and is located alongside the Bagmati River. One of the most important temples for Hindu devotees all over the world, as well as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. The golden pagoda-style temple has silver doors that are intricately carved. Around the month of February/March, a large fair is held on the day of Shivaratri.

Bouddhanath stupa: Kathmandu has one of the world's largest Stupas, which is located to the east. It has four pairs of eyes in each of the four primary directions, keeping an eye out for virtuous behavior and human success. This magnificent Stupa was built by King Man Deva on the advice of the Goddess Mani Jogini. The Mahayana philosophy is reflected in the Stupa. After returning from the tour, you will have some time to rest and prepare your equipment, among other things. Overnight stay in a hotel.

After breakfast, we will start our trip driving along Kathmandu's northwestern hills. Along the way, you will see beautiful scenery of white snowcapped mountains such as Mt. Annapurna II, Manaslu, Ganesh Himal, and other minor peaks, as well as green scenery of hillocks, rivers, and villages. Explore the terraced fields and rustic villages while taking in the Himalayan views and mountain lifestyle. The scenery of foothills and ridgeline vistas that passes through Trishuli Bazaar, Betrawati, and Dhunche makes you feel as if you're on your way to the deep land. We make our way down to Syabrubesi for the night at local lodge.

The first day's adventure trail follows the Langtang Khola and crosses the Bhote Koshi River, which flows down from Tibet. After visiting Guru Rinpoche's Gompa, take the stone-paved main street out of town and over Langtang Khola. The trail gradually ascends to Bamboo after crossing the suspension bridge and passing through a landslide. The trail winds through a subtropical forest of oak and maple trees, as well as massive spruce, fir, and blue pine. The forest is home to a variety of wildlife, including yellow-throated martens, wild boars, Langur monkeys, red pandas, and Himalayan black bears. Following that, your journey ascends gradually to Rimche (2400m/7874ft). And your trail is level to the Lama Hotel for overnight stay at local lodge.

The day begins with a gentle ascent, but it quickly becomes steeper as it ascends through wild forests of hemlocks, oaks, maples, and white and pink rhododendrons high above the Langtang Khola. Through the trees, a tantalizing glimpse of snow-capped peaks appears, along with a fleeting view of Mt. Langtang Lirung (7227m/23710ft). The trail leads to a log bridge, and as we continue climbing, we come across lush Ghora Tabela meadows (2992m/9816ft). The trail crosses a stream and climbs past several glasses of water, mills, and prayer wheels to the large settlement of Langtang (3430m/11253ft), which serves as the headquarters of Langtang National Park. The upper village's flat-roofed Tibetan style houses and elaborately carved driven windows are worth exploring. The valley is surrounded by stone walls that enclose fields where buckwheat, potatoes, wheat, turnips, and barley are grown, and it is common to see yak and wild goats roaming around. Overnight at local lodge at Langtang Valley.

The path winds through the village before ascending a ridge topped by a large Chorten. It then gradually ascends past an impressive Mani wall before crossing a stream to the small village of Mundu (3442m11292ft). After crossing several small streams with wooden cantilever bridges and moraines, you'll arrive at Kyanjin Gompa and the dramatic Icefall flowing from the peaks of Langtang Lirung and Kimshung. The surroundings are also interesting because of the well-known Government-operated cheese factory. After lunch, we can explore the area, which offers numerous panoramic views of Langtang Lirung, Genjempol, Kyanjin RI (4773m/15655ft), Ganja la (5160m/16929), Yala peak, and other peaks. Overnight at local lodge at Kyanjin Gompa.

Today is the trekking's rest and exploration day. We may visit the monastery and the cheese factory, or we may walk up the moraine to see the spectacular ice faces and tumbling glaciers of Langtang Lirung, or we may ascend Kyanjin Ri (4773m/15655ft) and Tserko Ri (5,033m/16512ft), the trek's highest point. Hike gently for a spectacular view of the Langtang Lirung, Langtang range, Kinshung, and Yansa Tsenji. We also have the option of taking a detour to Langshisa Kharka. There are several alternative side trips, with many smaller uninhabited valleys in the surrounding areas of the north. Spend the night at the Kyanjin.

Today we climb to the base camp of Yala peak. This is a short training day for the climb to the summit next day. We will set up our tent for overnight and get some training for the summit along with some rest. Overnight at the Tented Camp.

We will start early climbing to the summit of Yala peak with our crew. It offers superb panorama vistas and scenery of several mountains including Shishapangma, Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganchenpo, Naya Kangi, and many others. After having some time at the summit, we will now start our decent towards Kyanjin Gompa where we will spent our night at the local lodge.

Today is the extra day for some unforeseen circumstances, unfavorable weather and other reason.

We will have breakfast with observing surrounding genetic snowy capped mountains breathtaking view. We will follow the same trail back following the Langtang Khola to Langtang Valley and on to Ghoda Tabela. After having a lunch stop continue steep descent to Lama Hotel. All the way downhill you will see fantastic views of towering mountain what you have missed on the way up. Overnight at local lodge at Lama Hotel.

You can enjoy the amazing landscape and magnificent nature with magnificent views of Ganesh Himal (7110m/23326ft), Langtang Himal and its ranges from here. The rest of the day will be spent exploring the village of Syabru Beshi and overnight at local lodge at Syabru Beshi.

Today we will walk around the local town in Kathmandu to experience the historical, cultural, and spiritual affluence to uncover the social and historical mysteries to view the artistic Kathmandu Sightseeing Tour to capture photographs of the centuries-old monuments and historical crafts in Kathmandu. We visit the Ason Local Market, the glass beads market at Indrachowk, the oldest supermarket at New Road, Kilagal, and the Hidden Stupa, among other places. Then we make our way to Kathmandu Durbar Square. The visit to the temple of the living goddess "Kumari" is the most unique experience in the square.
