Yala Peak (5,500m) climbing is an easy and suitable for all the climbers who have little bit knowledge on trekking. Being one of the easiest climbing of the Nepal, it will be the best destination for all climbers who are seeking for this summit which doesn’t required any advance equipment and strong climbing background but climbers should be in good physical conditions. This trail provides us splendid Himalayan views including Langtang Lirung, Dorje Lakpa , Ganesh Hima, Naya Kanga Peak, Gangchempo(6,388m), Shishapangma(8,046m). Common trekkers and travelers can make Langtang Ganja La pass trekking after summit the Yala Peak.

We will begin our trail from Syabrubesi after 5 hours drive from Kathamndu and we will spend 5 days hiking around the dazzling Langtang Valley to Kyanjin Gompa(3,800m). Kyanjun Gompa is located below Langtang Lirung(7,246m) and we will take 3 days as acclimatization for hiking around the picturesque surroundings. On the way of trail we will establish base camp in a meadow (4,800m) and next day we will ascend Yala peak. During summit of the

Yala Peak,its last 400 m is on ice so we have to bring to use crampons, ice axe and rope. From the summit we could be able to see the magnificent view of Shishapangma(8,046m) and the fluted Gangchempo(6,388m) then after completing the summit we will return  to Dhunche via Syabrubesi and drive back to Kathmandu.

We have focused more on acclimatization days to get rid of altitude sickness too.

Best Season to Trek in Nepal:

Autumn (September - November) and Spring (March - May) is the best trekking season for the trekking and mountaineering in Nepal.  Weather is mostly clear and temperature is moderate which offers beautiful views without any obstruction. Spring collects beautiful flowers, plants and rare animals Walking is also very much suitable during this season.

Summer (June - August) and Winter (December - February). Though Summer collects heavy monsoon rainfall it is very much clear to trek around Mustang, Dolpo and Nar- Phu valley since they are rain shadow areas.  Tibet is much more favorable for Tibet trek. Everest,  Langtang and Annapurna are always comfortable to trek even in winter season.

Experience & Fitness:

Trekking in Nepal for Dhaulagiri Circuit Trek does not require past experience, though we have challenging route in Everest compared to Annapurna our itinerary suggests to walk comfortable distances. Trekking in Himalayas always takes us to challenging altitudes and rocky routes, demands proper rest time and acclimatization to sustain their strength. We always have both listed properly in our itinerary. However certain training like Running, Skipping and other workout will definitely help you in roots. 

Acclimatization:

Altitude sickness is a significant risk when trekking on any trails above about 2,500m. However good health, proper care and drinking plenty of water will definitely help you to prevent from altitude sickness. Every trekkers needs to be familiar with the heights so, for this we have life saving acclimatization days during the trek, peak climbing and expedition. We also provide certain medical support for your relief and emergency rescue through helicopter whenever guest require.

Eco Friendly:

We only leave foot prints! Himalayan Magic Treks is very much concern agency on environment pollution and Global Warming. We are always serious and genuine towards our garbage during the trek especially in Camping type. We collect all the rubbish and deposit it to proper place to protect our environment. We also partake in every program conducted in KEEP Kathmandu Environmental Education Project. We also suggest all travelers to protect our environment and Stop Global Warming.

Profit oriented is not only our priority! we have been helping some of ours very villagers from different corners of Nepal to sustain their social life and help them with education and required materials. We are always looking forward for interested candidates in this field to give helping hand to support and inspire them for their better beginning and good future.
