A brief overview of Yala Peak Climbing

Yala Peak Climbing is the best 10-day adventure trip in naturally blessed Langtang Valley in Langtang National Park. It is so popular but still not that technical and less difficult in comparison to other trekking peaks in Nepal. Yala Peak is a small mountain in the Langtang area of Nepal. It is considered a trekking peak by the Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) and is a somewhat simple, non-technical climb. The summit is so well-liked for being a superb vantage point from which Shishapangma (8013m), the highest mountain wholly in Tibet, and the lowest of the 14 eight-thousanders, can be seen.

Yala Peak Climbing trip combined with Langtang Valley Trekking in Nepal is the best choice for those who wish to stand on a Himalayan summit but have a limited amount of time and budget available. This trip rewards the visitors with a thrilling venture of trekking and climbing in the Langtang region way beyond simply hiking. The Yala peak climb is non-technical. Prior climbing experience is not required however outfit experience and a reasonably good level of physical fitness and stamina are necessary.

Confirming the climbing equipment with Wilderness Excursion and discovering the sights and sounds of historical Kathmandu valley we begin our voyage to Yala Peak climbing with a half-day drive to Syburbesi from Kathmandu. Hiking through the lush green forest and beautiful hamlets of Domen, Bamboo, Lama Hotel, Langtang village, and Kenjin Gompa, we arrive at the wonderful base camp of Yala Peak. We will also witness the damage done by the April 2015 earthquake in Nepal mainly in the Langtang village which washed away the beautiful village. You will have stunning views of many beautiful mountains – Lantang Lirung (7246m), Lenpo Gang 7083m), Dorje Lakpa (6990m), Gangchenpo (6388m) and mighty Shishapangma (8027m) on the Tibetan side. Thus this 2 week long and one-of-a-kind peak climbing with Wilderness Excursion in Nepal is one of the best selections to have the climbing experience in a short time duration in the Himalayas.

What is the price of the Yala Peak climbing permit?

Yala Peak Climbing doesn’t require any climbing permit though it used to be only permitted with permits, now, the Nepal Mountaineering Association  (NMA) has taken off the list as it is only 5500 meters. It needs only a Langtang National Park entrance permit costs NPR 3000 per person and a group TIMS Card is a must that costs NPR 2000 (USD 20) per head only obtained through a registered trekking company. So enjoy the trekking peak in Nepal without a permit.
