Trip Overview

Nepal is home to snowy mountains. Most remarkably, the country boasts more than 19000 mountains. Therefore, Nepal is heaven for mountaineers. There are countless mountaineering legends and records being made in Nepal. Climbing these mountains requires immense time, money, and effort.

However, there are few mountains that you can climb without a climbing permit. Simply, get the trekking permits of the area and hire the support crew members and scale the top. Yala Peak Climbing inside the Langtang National Park is one of the few mountains that don’t require a climbing permit.

The Nepal Mountaineering Association (NMA) has classed the Yala Peak (5732 m) as the trekking peak. The itinerary of Yala Peak Climbing can be combined with the Langtang Valley Trek. Please visit our Langtang Valley Trek package for more information regarding the trek.

If you wish to leave your footprints at the top of the mountain even if you don’t have any mountaineering experience, try the Yala Peak Climbing. However, you must possess an immense amount of physical fitness. Even if mountain climbing doesn’t require technical abilities, you still need lungs to endure the physical demand of ascending the peak.

Why you don’t require a climbing permit for Yala Peak Climbing?

The height of the Yala Peak is merely 5732 m. The technical difficulties are very less while ascending the mountain. The risk factor is very less. Therefore, back in 2011, the NMA (Nepalese Mountaineering Association) decided to tick off the climbing permits. However, you need two other permits in order to climb the peak. Climbers must get the Langtang National Park Entrance fee (NRS. 3000 per person) and TIMS – Trekkers’ Information Management System (NRS. 2000). Enjoy the majestic chance to stand at the top of the mountain and relish the 360 degrees view of mountains and Himalayan valleys.

Effects of Global Warming in the Mountains of Nepal

The effects of global warming are evident while climbing the Yala Peak. If you search on the internet for rare pictures of Yala Peak from 30 years back, you can clearly see the snowy top of the mountain. Therefore, Nepal Government had also imposed a climbing permit for the climbers. Nowadays, the route to the top and the summit of the peak is mostly rocky and rugged. Unless it snows, you will not see any snow on the route or at the summit. The melting glacier and barren hills or mountains surrounding the mountain can provide enough proof of the effects of global warming.

Yala Peak Climbing Difficulty and Number of Days to Climb

In comparison to lots of other climbing peaks of Nepal, Yala Peak Climbing is fairly easy. Even if you don’t require prior mountaineering experiences or technical knowledge, you must have immense physical abilities. Therefore, fairly easy means not like a walk in a park. Imagine, you will be at the top of the mountain that has an altitude of 5732 m from sea level.

As for the number of days required for climbing, this is probably the shortest expedition to do in Nepal. Normally, climbers can complete the trip within 10 – 11 days including the Langtang Valley Trek. Climbers will follow the itinerary of Langtang Valley Trek and add 2 – 3 days to it. The journey to the top of the Yala Peak from Kyanjin takes about 2 days. On the first day, climbers reach the high camp. Early in the morning they will summit the peak and return back to Kyanjin Gompa.

Langtang Valley Trek

The interesting thing about the Yala Peak Climbing trip is that climbers get a chance to do Langtang Valley Trek. The Trek is one of the most popular short trekking routes of Nepal. Moreover, the trek offers the best chance to understand the mountains, Himalayan valleys, vegetation, and ethnic Lama People’s culture. The journey also helps to fully acclimatize with the surrounding before attempting to scale the mountain.

Climbers take the bus or jeep ride from Kathmandu to Syaprubeshi. The trekking starts from Syaprubeshi and traverses through villages like Lama Hotel, Langtang, and Kyanjin Gompa. Mountain vistas, Lama Villages, green lush forests, glacial rivers, and century-old monasteries add value to the climbing expedition. Relish the spectacular combination of nature and culture in one single trip to Langtang Region.

Things to Remember before Yala Peak Climbing

Here is the list of the things that you need to remember before doing the Yala Peak Climbing:

Accommodation & Food: Until Kyanjin Gompa, trekkers can get the teahouses or lodge accommodation. The food is from the menu and the menu offers choices of food from western cuisine to local dishes. However, during the summit push, climbers have to spend a night in high camp in the tented accommodation. The meal is either cooked on the spot or packed food.

Best Season: Spring (March, April, and May) and Autumn (September, October, and November) These two seasons are an ideal time to do climbing and trekking in Nepal.

Crampons, Ice Axe, Rope, and Poles: Usually, you don’t require this equipment but we highly recommend you carry all this equipment.

Travel Insurance

It is mandatory for climbers to have travel insurance. The plan of insurance must include the provision for helicopter evacuation, accidents, deaths, medical expenses, etc.
