Yala Peak Climbing is one of Nepal’s easier trekking peaks, to the north of Kathmandu in the beautiful Langtang valley region. It is classed as Grade F (facile/easy) on the Alpine Grading system although this can vary by a point or so depending on the snow conditions. Yala peak Climbing does not require mountaineering experience. This is one of the easiest, romantic, wonderful and adventurous climbing peak and treks in Nepal. The summit gives good views of Shishapangma if you are lucky enough with the weather.

On the way to Yala Peak, we have to pass the dense forests, terraces, green hills and pasture land. The main ethnics group of this region are Tamang, Lama and Sherpa. Tamang people have somehow same culture, language and dress off like Tibetan Lama. They have their own culture and tradition, which may be different and interesting for you. There are two to three options to go to Yala. But the most famous and easiest one is to follow the route starting from Syabrubesi. After a 9 hour drive from Kathmandu, you will arrive in Syabrubesi and then we will follow the itinerary given for climbing Yala peak. We can see different types of vegetation like flora and fauna, pine, spruce, Juniper and alpine on our way. In Kyanjin Gompa we can visit ancient monastery and cheese making a factory. The most interesting thing is that from the base camp of Yala Peak we can see the splendid view of Naya Kang, Tserko RI, Ganchepo, Yala peak. From the summit of Yala Peak, we can see the view of Dorje Lakpa, Shisapang, Naya kang, Ganchenpo, Tserko RI, Langtang Lirungand many other Tibetan Mountains.

Yala Peak Climbing will be your most interesting trip where you can explore Yala Peak as well as Langtang valley and see the fascinating Mountain View of Nepal as well as Tibet. Trekking in the region is the closest we can get to the massive snowcapped mountains from Kathmandu Valley.

Itinerary Detail

Day 01: Arrival in Kathmandu:
A representative from ‘Himalayan Recreation Treks’ will be there in Tribhuvan International Airport, waiting for you with a nameplate holding your name as you land in Kathmandu. He will pick you up and drive you all the way to our hotel where you will freshen up. A briefing regarding your tour package will be made and you will spend the peaceful night in our comforting bed.

Day 02: Sightseeing in Kathmandu:  
After early breakfast, we will take a full day guided tour of Kathmandu Valley whereby we will visit the UNESCO enlisted cultural heritage sites of Pashupatinath, Boudhanath, Swayambhunath and Durbar Squares of Kathmandu, Bhaktapur and Patan. We will head to our hotel where evening dinner will be served.

Day 03: Drive to Syabru Besi:
The pleasant morning drive of about 8 hours through the 117km long serpentine road along the hills will lead us to Syabru Besi located at 1450m altitude. Syabrubesi is a happening place clustered with several hotels and lodges. We will find the one that appeals to our taste to spend the night.

Day 04: Trek to Lama Hotel:
Leaving the main road behind, the trail continues down through the camping area and crosses the suspension bridge over Bhote Koshi prior to ascending all the way to Thulo Syabru. Later, after arriving in a bridge over Langtang Khola, we will clamber up to set of six lodges at Changtang which is known by the name of Lama Hotel.

Day 05: Trek to Langtang Valley:
Advancing through the deep and verdant woods, we will ascend uphill departing the tree line at the back which opens up at Langtang Valley. We will be enjoying the wonderful scenic view of Langtang Lirung along with prayers wheels and water mills.
Day 06: Rest at Langtang Valley:
The sixth day of the itinerary, you will be spending in the Langtang Valley, resting and acclimatising to the changing weather conditions and the increasing altitude. Though you will be resting for the most part of the day, you will have the chances to interact with the local people and villagers.

Day 07: Trek to Kyangjin Gompa:
Leaving Langtang Valley behind, we will climb uphill and move across Sindum and Yamphu afterwards which we will cross Laja Khola to arrive at a vantage point with enchanting views of Kyanjin Gompa and icefall from Lirung and Kinshung. Ultimately we will lower down to Kyanjin Gompa.

Day 08: Rest at Kyangjin Gompa:
It will be a rest day. Walking around is usually recommended rather than lying idle. We can visit around glacier or visit the meadow land of Yak Kharka. The landscape bestows the scenic views of Langtang Lirung, Genjempol and Kenga Himal ranges. Time permitting, we will take a short trek to Cheese factory, Buddhist monastery or Tsergo Ri.

Day 09: Trek to Yala Base Camp:
Yala Base Camp is located at the 5033m altitude above sea level. It is going to be a strenuous trek of 5 to 6 hours along the rocky trail with boulders to make it to Yala Base Camp. Save the zeal required for the trekking.

Day10: Acclimatization and prepare for climbing:
Acclimatisation is a must to synchronise your body with the high altitude of the atmosphere. We will take a short tour around Yala Base Camp. Eating fruits and drinking plenty of water is recommended.

Day 11: Climb to Yala summit and back to Base Camp:
It’s the day when our wishes will come true as we will conquer the Yala Peak after 5 to 6 hours of mildly arduous climbing through the cliff. The climbing will be an exciting one as you will discover the fun of peak climbing. Indulging in the engrossing views the apex bestows, we will then return to the Base Camp before it is too dark.

Day 12: Trek to Ghora Tabela:
12th day marks the beginning of return trip. Leaving the Yala Base Camp behind, we will pursue the path downward through the barren land to Ghora Tabela where we will be staying overnight.

Day 13: Trek to Syabru:
6hours long wandering through the scenic landscape of river and woods will take us to a pretty Village of Syabru located at 2581m altitude.

Day 14: Trek to Sing Gompa:
Passing through Dursagang to a vantage point with enchanting views of Langtang Himal and Ganesh Himal Ranges, the track proceeds through oak, fir and hemlock woods to make it to Sing Gompa- a Buddhist monastery.

Day 15: Trek to Dhunche:
The route from Sing Gompa lowers down through pine, oak and rhododendron forests to the suspension bridge over the creek. Crossing the bridge, we will move along the plain land to arrive at Dhunche where we will stay overnight.

Day 16: Drive back to Kathmandu:
Seven hours of driving through the serpentine road enjoying the pleasant views of Majestic Mountain, cascading waterfalls, paddy fields and woods will take us to Kathmandu. We will be conveyed back to our hotel where we will enjoy the evening dinner and head towards our comforting beds.

Day 17: Free Day in Kathmandu:
The day is allocated for having a much-needed rest. Having rickshaw ride around the freak streets of Thamel especially in the evening is a fine idea. While at Thamel, you can choose from the diverse souvenir items varying from curio goods to art pieces to take along with you for your near and dear ones.

Day 18: Farewell:
We will assist in your last minute packing and then our representative will leave you to Tribhuvan International Airport from where you can return back to your home or yet another destination. We hope to serve you again.

Reviews
Heavenly Himalayas and Everest base camp Trek
Trip Date: 04/10/2016

That was my dream to be there once in my life. Everest base camp trek was my dream. But.. last month I was there. it was an unforgettable experience and beautiful achievement of my life. Amazing views of a mountain just in front of my eyes, beautiful views of Khumbu icefall, glacier and glacial lake. Wow ! Heaven on earth.
While I reached in Kalapatthar 5,555 m, I thought I was in the top of the world. I found myself surrounding the beautiful Himalayas such as Mt. Everest, Pumori, Nuptse, Lhotse and so on. By the stunning views of the Himalayas and Himalayan range, I felt nervous and neither I am able to speak nor express my happiness.
Everest base camp trek is adventurous. there is a lot of difficulties. it is also one of the dangerous trekking in the world. I want to recommend all of you to choose good trekking partner. Your smart choice will make your travel successful. I found #Himalayan Recreation is a good one and that was my perfect choice.
I can't forget one kind, helpful and smart person in my lifetime. He is Bharat, my friend, my guide. He made my trekking more beautiful than my expectation.

Thank you so much, Bharat and Team Himalayan recreation.

Great company, Wonderful Everest base camp
