Yala Peak(5,520m) is a part of the Langtang Himal range located in the Langtang area in Nepal. The base camp of Yala Peak is Kyangjin Gompa (3749m/12,300 ft). It is considered a trekking peak by the Nepal Mountaineering Association. It is a relatively simple, non-technical climb. The summit is famous for being an excellent viewpoint from which Shishapangma (8013m), the highest mountain wholly in Tibet, and the lowest of the14 mountains that are more than 8,000m, can be seen.
Yala Peak is a great choice for those who want to experience being on a Himalayan summit without taking risks or consuming a lot of time acclimatizing. Since it is a non-technical climb, the previous climbing expertise is not required. Any physically fit person can safely summit this peak. The Himalayas has two well known climbing windows; April-May, and October-November. The main issue is the snowfall in this area, you could be lucky or unlucky.
