Yala Peak climbing is a great introduction to the most delight of adventure trekking and peak climbing in the Langtang region.


Yala Peak 5732m considers relatively easier and non-technical climb with astoundingly beautiful and serene, and one of Nepal’s lowest trekking peaks to the beginner’s mountaineering trip.  Located in the heart of Langtang Himalayan range, close to Tibetan border, it is a chance to experience unique traditions to mountain people, and best thrill of adventure trekking and peak climbing in langtang region.  To make an attempt of scaling the summit is achievable for all travelers with previous outdoor experience only but not require  prior mountaineering experience.
