Situated in the Langtang Region of Nepal, Yala peak is a simple climb situated at an elevation of 5,700 m. It is renowned for being an excellent point to view the Shishapangma (8013 m) - the highest holy mountain in Tibet. It is very close to the Tibetan border, so close that one of the border mountain lies next to it, connected by a ridge. It takes 2 days to climb this peak from Kyanjin Gompa (3900 m) while camping at Yala Kharka (4600 m). It is also possible to climb it in 1 day but this takes very long starting with a pre- dawn climb. It's a 17 days schedule for the Yala Trek. All in all, it's a simple climb with less technical difficulties, and is a beautiful viewpoint.
