Description

The Yala Peak (5,732m) in the Langtang area of Nepal is a spectacular trekking summit. Unlike other Himalayan mountains, the Yala peak is just as much about hiking as it is about mountaineering. As a result of this, the journey to the top is more about exploration and absorbing the surroundings then sheer technical climbing.

Also, because of the nature of this trip, it is perfect for people who are still new to high altitude climbing. And because it is not a technical climb, you will have ample time to learn the basics and gain much need practice and experience for future, more difficult climbs. Some of the skills I will be more than happy to help you with include walking while roped up, hiking in crampons, using an ice axe, route planning, and much more.

However, this trip is not just a climbing course. You will have the chance to see all of the beauty of the Langtang valley. You will get to see amazing peaks like Shishapangma (8,013m) and Gangchempo (6,388m). You will get to see the Langtang village, Kyangjin Gompa. You will get to spend a few days exploring Kathmandu. Finally, you will also get to scale the beautiful Yala Peak and behold the view from its amazing summit.

Many trips that allow you to see as much as this trip does are incredibly challenging and require a great deal of expert skill. However, on this 2-week trek you will get to learn and practice just as much as you will get to enjoy and experience.

So please, send me a message if you want to join me on this trek. Let me guide you through the Langtang Valley and up to the summit of the Yala Peak.

If you are looking for a bigger mountain and a bigger challenge in Nepal, I can also guide you on a 20 day trek to the top of the Mera Peak.
