Yala Peak is one of Nepal's easier trekking peaks, just to the north of Kathmandu in the beautiful Langtang valley region, this 5500 meters peak does not require mountaineering experience. From Katmandu we drive to Dhunche or Syabru Bensi, and then trek up the valley for Four days. We explore the Langshisa glacier to help us acclimatize, establishing a high camp at 4800 meters from where we make our summit. After an alpine start under stars we are on the summit by late morning, with some amazing views into Tibet and across to Shisapangma (the only 8000 meters peak situated wholly in Tibet).This trek enables you to explore through the Langtang National Park home of the Tibetan looking people the Tamangs. We begin our journey by drive towards the North West of Kathmandu to a mountain village of Dhunche a major village of Langtang area.
The trek commences from here to the farmland, villages and forest of Rhododendron, conifer, bamboos, oaks and pines. In the spring season forest looks enchanting with flowers all around. After passing this fascinating scenery we follow the narrow gorge of Langtang River till we ascend to the large alpine grass land of Kyangin Gompa where the glacier meets the meadow. You can see Yaks grazing around with the backdrops of snowy peaks of Langtang Ri, Langtang Lirung, Dorjee Lakpa and many other unnamed mountains around you.
