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.

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 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.
