Yala Peak Climbing

Trip Overview

Yala Peak Climbing (5732m) is one of Nepal's easier 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 (7,245m), 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 (7246m), Lenpo Gang (7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6990 m), and the mighty Shishapangma (8027 m). Yala Peak Climbing's base camp is located at Kyangjin Gompa (3749 m), while its high camp is located at 4800 meters from where we make our summit bid. Because the last 400 meters are on ice, we will need crampons, an ice axe, and a rope for safety. We return to Dhunche via Syabrubesi and finally to Kathmandu after climbing Yela Peak.

 

Itenerary

When you arrive at Kathmandu International Airport, our representative will meet you and welcome you to Nepal before transporting you to the hotel. After completing the check-in process, you can rest and relax at the hotel. After a short rest, we will take you on a short Thamel tour, which is the main tourist hub in Kathmandu. After a brief exploration, you will be taken to our office for a trip briefing. Overnight stay in a hotel. If your arrival is late today, this tour and trip briefing will be shifted for tomorrow.
Tour Duration: 4 Hrs. After having morning breakfast, we will head towards for the sightseeing. 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 drive for about 7-8 hours 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.
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 up 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). And your trail is level to the Lama Hotel for overnight stay.
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 (7244m). The trail leads to a log bridge, and as we continue climbing, we come across lush Ghora Tabela meadows (2992m). The trail crosses a stream and climbs past several glasses of water, mills, and prayer wheels to the large settlement of Langtang (3430m), 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.
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 (3442m). 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 (4750m), Ganja la (5160m), Yala peak, and other peaks.
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 (4350m) and Tserko Ri (5,000m), 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 first base camp of Yala peak at the height of 5732 m. This is a short training day for the climb to the summit next day.
We will start early climbing to the summit of Yala peak with our crew. It would be great pleasure to feel the conquering of the peak. It offers superb panorama vistas scenery from here. After having some rest, we return back to the Kyanjin Gompa for the res
Have your breakfast with observing surrounding genetic snowy capped mountains breathtaking view. We will follow the same trail back following the Langtang Khola to Langtang village and on to Ghora 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.
The trail begins by gently descending along the river to the landslide, then ascends steeply through pine and Juniper forests to Thulo (Big) Syabru. The trail provides breathtaking views of red pandas, wild boar, monkeys, and various bird species. The Tamang Cultural Heritage “Thulo Syabru Gaun” preserves wonderful ethnic customs, culture, and traditional ways of life. You can enjoy the amazing landscape and magnificent nature with magnificent views of Ganesh Himal (7110m), Langtang Himal and its ranges from here. The rest of the day was spent exploring the small village of Syabru.
The trails lead us from Thulo Syabru up the steep ascent path through Dursagang (2735m) and past a line of Chortens. The trail continues steeply through oak and hemlock forests and then less steeply through rhododendron forest and pastures to the top of the ridge at Phoparng Danda, with breathtaking views of Langtang Himal, Ganesh Himal, and Tibetan Mountain (3190m). The path then gently ascends for a short distance before following a flat level to the Sing Gompa. The local well-managed cheese factory and a Buddhist Monastery can be visited for panoramic views and exhilarating nature. Spend the night at the teahouse.
Today's trail is divided into two sections. The trail begins with a steep ascent up a ridge that marks the transition zone between rich, moist mountain forests and dry scrub vegetation on the slopes. The slope is a haven for red pandas and offers a breathtaking view of the snow-capped Ganesh Himal. The trail to Lauri Binayak (3920m) is steep and takes three hours to complete. We follow a rugged trail with dramatic views to the west of the Manaslu range, Ganesh Himal range, Tibetan peaks, and Langtang Lirung across the valley. The trail now ascends in alpine country above the tree line from Lauri Binayak. Cross a small ridge to get your first glimpse of Gosainkunda holy lake. There are several lakes in the Gosaikunda Basin, the most notable of which are Saraswatikunda, Bhairabkunda, and Gosaikunda. According to legend, Lord Shiva created Gosainkunda by piercing a glacier with his trident to obtain water to quench his thirst after swallowing a poison that threatened to destroy the world. Every August, hundreds of pilgrims come here to worship and bathe during the full moon festival.
We started the day with a bit of a challenge after exploring around Gosaikunda. The trail climbs and traverses the northern side of Gosaikunda Lake on a rocky trail. We climb through rugged terrain, cross glacier moraines, and pass four small lakes on our way to the Laurebina La. (4610m). On a clear day, we can see the Annapurna range from the path. The trail then descends steeply to Phedi (3740m). From here, the path descends to the stream before ascending through the bamboo scrub to a crest. Continue walking down to Ghopte, crossing a rocky hill with pine and rhododendron trees. At night, the lights of Trishuli Bazaar can be seen far below, and Kathmandu can be seen glowing behind the hills to the west.
The trail descends from the ridge at Ghopte, making numerous ups and downs across ravines and the boulders of old moraines. The trail descends slightly before beginning to ascend through rhododendron, oak, and juniper forests up to the Tharepati. A steep path rises above the village to a fluttering white prayer flag on a windswept hilltop with a stunning view of the Langtang Himalaya. Spend the day walking around the village.
The trail drops rapidly down the ridge as it heads east from Tharepati. The path winds through a pine and rhododendron forest rich in birdlife, with views down into the Helambu valley. This is a charming example of an old-fashioned Helambu village. Attractive mountain views, as well as the lifestyle, culture, and customs of the locals, will make you feel good.
A pleasant walk down to the Pathi Bhanjyang goes through forests. A shorter day but with descends and climbs to Chisopani, where the view of the whole central Himalayas is breathtaking. We can see Himalayan range from Manaslu to Everest. Landscapes will be reflective in the evening and early morning hours
We begin the day by ascending the trek's final pass, Borlang Bhanjyang (2240 m). We descend steeply from here through deeply eroded chasms towards the Tamang settlement of Mulkharka (1800m). More spectacular views as you descend to the road through oak and rhododendron forests, with some pine at a lower elevation. We now walk past the local water supply system and follow the water pipe to Sundarijal, which is a short distance away. We can take local transportation from Sundarijal or have our private transport waiting for us to take us back to Kathmandu for about 4 hours.
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. Durbar square walking tour will be a perfect mixture of culture, history, art, architecture and traditional values prevalent in Kathmandu valley. Overnight stay at hotel.
Today is a free day, or you have a few hours to do some last-minute shopping for your relatives. If you have extra time, you can go shopping or sightsee. We will drop you off at the international airport to catch your flight back home, and we wish you a safe journey.
