Description

The Yala Peak with its altitude of 5,732m is a beautiful trekking summit in the Langtang region. It is perfect for beginners who wish to learn the mountaineer basics while experiencing a real climb in the Himalayas. It is a non technical ascent.

It is located North of the Kathmandu valley. The summit offers a breathtaking view on the surroundings including the Shishapangma (8,013m.) and the Gangchempo (6,388m.).

It will be my pleasure to guide you there and while on the glacier teach you the basics of alpinism: walking roped, hiking with crampons, use ice axe…

I’m a mountain guide from Nepal. I have been partially trained in Chamonix and I’m certified by IFMGA (The International Federation of the Mountain Guide Associations).

The journey start with a drive to Syabrubesi (7 hours from Kathmandu). We then hike up for 6 days the Langtang Valley to Kyangjing Gompa at 3,870m.

Langtang area is a very good choice for all trekkers. This region is beautiful and culturally very rich. In addition, the trails are less crowded and the people living there are very friendly.

Kyanjin Gompa is located below Langtang Lirung (7,246m). We will establish our base camp on a meadow at (5,033m.) and climb Yala Peak the next day. The last 400m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axe and rope etc.
