But for travelers who wish to trek and climb Yala peak in a more relaxed manner then try this itinerary. However, if the Yala adventure itinerary is not fit your climbing plan? then send us an inquiry for a tailor-made itinerary.01 DayArrival at Kathmandu. The world heritage site of Kathmandu valley sightseeing, 4-5 hours.
Arrival in Kathmandu, Tribhuwan International Airport. Receive you with a private vehicle and drive to the hotel in Kathmandu. Around 10 am will start with our guided trip to cultural world heritage monuments in Kathmandu valley. It includes the Hindu and Buddhist pilgrimage sites. Visit Pashupatinath temple, the world’s biggest Boudhanath stupa, Later, visit the historical Kathmandu Durbar Square with the antique temple, unique architecture, and living Goddess Kumari. In the sunset, introduce our fellow trekking staff for your Yala adventure climbing briefing.
At morning we’ll drive on a northern highway that twists and climbs over mountain ridges to the Trishuli valley for lunch and on to Syapru village for the overnight. The road ride is still amazing but the adventure bus drive takes about 7 hours over picturesque landscapes and mountain villages.
After breakfast, trek ascends through the forest followed by a climb to reach Bamboo village. Bamboo is located on the Langtang river bank at an altitude of 1,850 meters. This forest path is a well-established trail that follows upstream and can be seen birds life around the bushes. Beehives hanging on a cliff are another attraction for visitors. From here we’ll again steeply climb through the bamboo forest to reach the Lama Hotel where we’ll stay overnight.
From Lama Hotel, the trail leads across a forest of hemlock, oaks, maples, and rhododendron observing glimpses of Langtang Lirung, reaches to Gumanchok (2800m). Climb to Ghora Tabela (2,970m) and further ascends to Thangshyap (3,140m/10,300 feet). On the way, there is an entrance checkpoint where Nepal Military collects Langtang national park entrance fees. Pay just for single-time entry if you haven’t paid in Dunche, you have to pay Langtang national park fees here.
The trail climbs gradually to Sindum and to Yamphu (3640m) to Mundo. Crossing the Laja Khola then climbs a moraine to a viewpoint where you can see Kyanjin Gompa and the dramatic icefall flowing from Langtang Lirung and Kinshung. As you climbed the hill, walk a little down to reach kyanjin gompa lodges. You might go further to the Langtang glacier – Langtang river and its origin.
Explore around the Langtang Lirung glacier and dry Himalayan Yak pasture. We need to take a packed lunch as a full-day hike takes about 7 hours roughly to get to Tsergo Ri. We climb to Tsergo Ridge hill only if the weather is clear with a blue sky. In clear weather, you can see stunning mountain vistas like Langtang Lirung, Ganjala Chuli, Yala peak, Dorje Lakpa, and many other summits in a row.
Check about the Yala peak climbing gears before you proceed to hike at Yala base camp. Begin your Yala base camp hiking and set up a campsite at the base camp to say overnight. Gokyo Treks Nepal’s expert climbing guide will brief climbing instructions. It helps climbers to get to the summit and descend to base camp safely.
In wintertime climbing, about the last 700 meters will require rope up and using crampons with a walking axe. There is a final shapely ridge to mediate the tiny summit. Except for the winter months, tourists can hike the summit without professional climbing gear.
Yala summit height is 5,700m and offers the best view of Shishapangma, Dorje Lakpa, Ganchenpo, Naya Kang, Tserko Ri, Langtang Lirung, and many other border mountains. Shooting the best mountains, we’ll make our way back to Base Camp and further downhill to Kyanjin Gompa lodge if time and energy permit.
There is no guarantee that we can get quite a favorable climate on our planned day for the Yala summit. So this day is used as a contingency in case we are unable to submit or for some other reason. If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable we wisely have to modify the climbing program to reach the summit. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.
From base camp descends to Ghoda Tabala passing Kyanjin gompa and Langtang villages. During the hikes, you can walk over the tiny yak pastures and the glacial moraine of Langtang landslides, the new Langtang village. Furthermore, you can walk following the Langtang Khola and on to Ghoda Tabela lodge.
The upper part trek route is more beautiful for the panoramic view of mountains and green hill views. This path is broader and remains sunny through the different Sherpa and Tamang villages. The first half part of the trail is gradually down and then the trail does a steep descent to the Syabrubesi (1,600m/5,248 feet.). Nowadays, Syabrubesi bazaar is very popular because of a connecting highway to kerung border, Tibet.
Drive back to Kathmandu by Kerung Deluxe Yatayat bus which takes about 7 hours to get to Kathmandu city center. The trip ends and we wish you a wonderful journey.

Notes for Yala peak climbers!
Currently Nepal government and Nepal Mountaineering Association skipped the Yala climbing permit cost. We believe that by removing Yala peak climbing special permits, there will be more tourists. Climbing Yala trek information stated above is just a standard template guideline. However, the Yala adventure trip plan is possible to modify at your request on your specific conditions. Local politics, landslides, cancellation of local flights, weather, transport, or a multitude of other factors that are beyond our control can result in a change of itinerary during on trip.
It is, however, very unlikely that the path would be substantially altered. If alterations are necessary the leader will decide the best alternative option, taking into consideration the best interests of the whole group. When a change does occur, we do everything we can to minimize its effect, but we cannot be responsible for the results of changes or delays.
