Yala Peak Climbing 15 Days

Trip Information

Peak climbing in Nepal? If you are searching for the easy peak climbing in the vicinity of the capital city Kathmandu then Yala Peak of the Langtang Region of Nepal is the most viable option to choose. Backpacker offers this amazing comfortable yet panoramic trekking peak which is classed as Grade F (Facile/easy).

This easy peak climbing can be sometimes daunting depending upon the snow conditions on the trail. This is often considered as the practice before the Naya Kanga expedition which lies in the opposite end of the Yala Peak. The Langtang region is somewhat ravaged due to the 2015 April Earthquake and this peak climbing has been successful in luring the trekkers as well as climbers towards the region. The region is coming to normalcy and in 2016 only about 20% of the peak climbers chose Yala for the peak climbing. The top of the Yala Peak would provide the stunning view of the mountains including Shishapangma depending upon the weather conditions. The local climbing experts as well as the certified team of Backpacker Treks would accompany you to the summit which would make your climbing of Yala Peak the comfortable and mesmerizing.
