Yala Peak Expedition

Yala Peak Expedition

(44 NIGHTS/ 45 DAYS )

overview

Yala Peak (5,700m / 18,700ft.) is one of the prominent expedition and trekking peaks in Nepal. It lies in the Langtang region and serves at a vantage point to closely get a view of the lowest eight-thousander, Mt Shishapangma(8,013m). The climb is one of the non-technical adventures that most science expeditions for study and research prefer over rocky and steep ice-slope climbs. The peak sits in a remote Himalayan region however, there are lodges and teahouses for trekkers to acclimatize before attacking the summit.

The Yala Peak climbing 2019/20 begins at Syabrubesi and ends at the same village on the way from the base camp. The trek involves walking around the Langtang valley with stunning views of the Manaslu range the Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa, Ganesh Himal and other prominent expedition peaks. As the peak is closer to the Tibetan border, the locals are mainly Tibetan Buddhists. Climbers can also choose to visit the Kyanjin Moanstery at an altitude of 3,600m above sea level. The monastery is a world-famous tourist site for the believers of Buddhism. Climbers who love Tibetan cuisine, can find tea and refreshments with the authentic taste of Tibet, at teahouses on the way to the base camp.
