Yala Peak Expedition Route

The trip to Yala Peak begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Syabru Besi. After staying a day here, trekking to Langtang begins following a trek to Kyanjin, where you can enjoy the panoramic views of ice-capped Himalayan peaks. The walk continues to the base camp, where you will stay for acclimatization. Then, finally, you will hike up to the Yala Peak.

The path to the top of Yala Peak will be coated in ice, and a successful ascent will need various climbing gear such as rope, ice-ax, and crampons. After reaching the summit, you will spend some time admiring the magnificent views of the Langtang Himal range, Ganesh Himal range, Langshisa range, Dorje Lakpa in Nepal and Shishapangma in Tibet.

Best season for Yala Peak Expedition

The autumn and spring seasons are the best time for Yala Peak expedition. Autumn occurs in September, October, and November, whereas Spring occurs in March, April, and May.

Autumn and Spring are considered the finest seasons for Yala Peak expedition since the weather and temperature in the Langtang region are highly suitable during these seasons. For trekking and peak-climbing expeditions, autumn and Spring both provide ideal environments.
