13  days to visit Langtang Valley & ascend Yala Peak (5,500m)

Departure: Kathmandu
Duration: 13 days
Best season: October to May
Peak Grade: Alpine Grade F

The Langtang Valley is located only 90km north of Kathmandu and is close to the border of Tibet. The valley is dominated by Langtang Lirung, which at 7246m is the highest peak in the area. This trek is a superb introduction to trekking in Nepal and climbing Yala Peak offers a wonderful introduction to mountaineering in the Himalayan mountains, among some of the most beautiful scenery in the whole of Nepal.

After trekking up the Langtang Valley through magnificent forests and Sherpa villages to our base at Yala, we have the opportunity to climb Yala Peak (5500m). 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, with magnificent mountain scenery of snow capped peaks all around and views across to the mountains of Tibet, including Shishapangma.

Descending from the upper Langtang Valley we retrace our route back to Kathmandu via Syabrubesi.
