Yala Peak Climbing Difficulty

Yala Peak climbing is one of the easiest peaks climbing in Nepal. It is not easy only; it is one of the shortest period peaks climbing also. It is one of the less technical and straight forward trekking peaks as well. 

Yala Peak (5500m) is a practical trekking peak located in the Langtang Region of Nepal. The peak climbing offers the picturesque and superb mountain views of Langtang Range, Manaslu, Naya Kang, Ganesh Himal Range, Dorje Lakpa, etc. This mountain Peak is quite closer to the Tibetan border. The trail of Yala Peak Climbing itinerary passes through the Langtang National Park. So, this peak climbing also covers stunning natural landscapes, prosperous natural recourses, and cultural entities.

Yala Peak climbing is a beautiful and brilliant Peak Climbing in Nepal. However, climbing a mountain peak is not an easy piece of cake. It involves some potential dangers too. High altitude, glaciers and icefall, snowdrift, crevasses, steep and snowy trails are very challenging to undertake. Therefore, you need to have a logistic preparation beforehand. We recommend you spend quite a long time for physical fitness and mental training.

Yala Peak Climbing Season 

Peak Climbing in Nepal is a seasonal activity. Autumn and Spring are the best seasons for climbing most of the mountains in Nepal. Autumn Season (September, October & November) and Spring Season (March, April & May) are the perfect seasons for Climbing Yala Peak. During these months, the days will be sunny and warm in the Himalayas. The skies will be clear and the atmosphere of the Himalayas will be alluring. Thus, we can have great views of the mountains. Nevertheless, some adventure-seeking clients who don’t like hustle and bustle during the journey also can choose Winter Season (December, January, and February) months for this trip. Monsoon season (June, July, and August) will be a pretty difficult time for climbing in the Himalayas because of monsoon. During monsoon, the trails will be slippery, muddy and there will be landslides too.

Preparations for Yala Peak Climbing

The best preparation for tomorrow is doing your best today.  Preparation is key to the success of any activity.  Good preparations are must for the successful peak climbing. You need to consider several things before going for peak climbing. For the successful Yala Peak Climbing, your physique plays a vital role.  So, you must prepare yourself before the climb. You would better join a mountaineering course for 4-6 months. Otherwise, you can join the gym and have aerobic training, cardio, stress endurance training, hiking training etc. You can also practice jogging, cycling, swimming, hiking etc. on a regular basis. Your previous experiences on mountaineering are also important. So, you must practice hiking to some smaller peaks. Similarly, you should be careful about your diet. You must include plenty of protein, carbohydrates, and minerals in your diet. A balanced diet is very important for physical fitness. Moreover, you must be mentally ready to cope up with the adverse situations in the mountain. The weather is unstable at high altitude and you should also spend a couple of days in a camp. Hygiene matters a lot for the success of the climb. In addition to all these, you must also go through Yala Peak Climbing Gears checklist and have enough collection of them.

Physical Fitness & Experience Required for Yala Peak Climbing 

Yala Peak Climbing is a technical adventure activity in Nepal which requires previous trekking experience and technical skills about peak climbing gears to have a successful summit. The trip is very suitable for adventure motivated trekkers who have the ability to walk in snowy ridges and adventurous trails. Walking in high altitudes might attract high altitude sickness, a slow and steady walk would be the perfect solution. We suggest every trekker who is planning to come to Nepal for trekking and peak climbing adventure to do daily physical workout (jogging, hiking, cycling, gym, etc) prior to a couple of weeks. We recommend you to undertake Yala Peak only if you have undertaken other smaller peaks of the same region. Here is the list of the activities that must be done compulsorily before attempting any peak climbing in Nepal:

  • Go for a run or hike to hills where you have to do ascents and descents.
  • Once a week, do a long walk.
  • Swim and cycle.
  • You can also go up and down the stairs of a tall building.
  • Eat healthy food.
  • Keep on doing. If you can, do more yoga related to breathing. 

Gears and equipment for Yala Peak Climbing  

Climbers need several pairs of socks, including trekking, wool and liner socks. They also need lightweight hiking boots as well as plastic, lined climbing boots. These should be large to give feet more room and reduce the risk of frostbite. Here is the list of major and most essential climbing gears. Just have a look.

  • Climbing Helmet: Choose a good quality climbing helmet. Make sure your warm cap fits under your helmet.

At a reasonable Yala Peak Climbing Cost, Sophisticated hotels and resorts from normal tourist standard category to five-star categories are available in Kathmandu for your accommodation, where you can choose your suitable one. During the entire trekking (apart from the climbing period of Yala Peak) there is the availability of tea house/lodges. And during the climbing period for a couple of days, we need to set up a tent camp for our accommodations. So we will provide all tea house accommodation at available places and camping accommodation at the places where tea house/lodges are not available.

During the camping period, while we are in Yala Peak Base Camp and High Camp, our kitchen team will prepare hygienic foods to serve you. There might not be several choices of foods during the camp as in the tea houses and restaurants; you have to understand that our crew have to carry all camping gears and kitchen equipments from available places but we are sure we will provide as much services and facilities as we can do to make your adventure holiday awesome. 

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness. 

Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema. 

Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.

Is Nepal Safe?

No doubt, Nepal is safe for trekking, hiking and mountaineering. The trekking trails are improvised and maintained as well. In many technical sections, ropes have been fixed. 

The stains of the devastating earthquake have also been healing up and the decade long armed insurgency has also come to an end along with the implementation of the new constitution. 

Tourist Help Desk and Tourism Information Centre have been established at the prominent tourist destinations. Moreover, you will receive a respectable welcome everywhere you go. The Nepali people are simple and kind to you and pay a wonderful hostage to you.

Don’t worry; Nepal is a safe country to visit.
