Yala Peak (5500m) climbing is not technically difficult, but it provides good acclimatization and training to climb Naya Kanga (5844m) Peak. The second climb is also not difficult although the final snow crest is quite narrow. From the summit of both peak, the views of the area and across into Tibet are magnificent.
We stay in tea-houses en route but at High Camp we operate a fully equipped camping trek with accommodation in two person tents and food being cooked by our kitchen staff. Transport to and from the Langtang region is by jeep or bus.
Yala peak is a part of Langtang Himal which is located at the central part of Nepal. The peak is seldom climbed in its own right, often being used as a warm-up for Naya Kanga on the opposite side of the valley. The summit gives surprisingly good views of Shishapangma if you are lucky enough with the weather.
The climb is easy and suited for anyone with trekking experience. Yala Naya Kanga climbing expedition starts from Syabrubesi after a 5 hour drive from Kathmandu and spend five days hiking up the beautiful Langtang valley to Kyanjin Gompa at 3800 m. Kyanjin Gompa is situated below Langtang Lirung (7246 m) and we spend three days acclimatizing taking day-hikes in spectacular surroundings. We establish base camp on a meadow at 4800 m and climb Yala Peak the next day. The last 400 m is on ice so we will be using crampons, ice axe and rope. From the summit we can see Shishapangma (8046 m) and the fluted Gangchempo (6388 m). After the climb we return to Dhunche via Syabrubesi and drive to Kathmandu.
