Trip Overview

Yala Peak climbing: with Himalayan alpine Adventure Trek and Expedition

The Langtang Valley is located only 19 miles north of Kathmandu, close to the border of Tibet, below the main crest of the Himalaya. The valley is dominated by Langtang Lirung 7246 m, the highest peak in the area. This trek with its optional climbs of Yala Peak and Naya Kanga offers a wonderful introduction to mountaineering in the Himalaya, among some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of Nepal.

Our trek begins with a 6-hour drive from Kathmandu to Dhunche. Initially, we trek through the subtropical jungle, then a dense forest of oak, birch, and pine before the valley opens out into alpine meadows and yak pastures. In the spring these high meadows are carpeted with a rich variety of alpine flowers – gentians, violets, Edelweiss, and primulas to name just a few – and the forests are also in full bloom with rare tree orchids and the colorful rhododendron. The Langtang forests are also known for their wildlife, including Red Pandas, Himalayan black bear, wild boar, and langur monkeys.

We trek up the valley to Kyanging, where we camp in a superb setting, dominated by the fluted north-west face of Kangchenpo, whilst Kyanging Ri provides a splendid viewpoint. From Kyanging, we move further up the valley to Yala, a small yersa (summer hamlet). Basing ourselves here allows time to walk to the top of Tsergo Ri (5066m), the highest point on a broad, flat plateau. The views from here are as spectacular as anywhere in the Himalaya, a 360-degree panorama of snow-capped mountains including Langtang Lirung, Pemthang Ri, Langshisha Ri, Dorje Lakpa, and Kangchenpo.

Our base at Yala also provides us with the opportunity to climb Yala Peak (500 m. This is not technically difficult and provides good acclimatization and training for our climb of Naya Kanga 5844 m. The climb is straightforward being little more than a walk up steep snow slopes of around 30 degrees. The view from the summit is breathtaking – magnificent snow-capped peaks all around and views across to the mountains of Tibet, including Shishapangma.

Single Supplement: Only applies if you specifically request the single accommodation.
