When is the Best Time for Yala Peak Climbing?

Yala Peak Climbing is best done in the Autumn and Spring seasons. Autumn is defined as September, October, and November, whereas Spring is defined as March, April, and May.

Because the weather and temperature in the Langtang region are highly ideal during these seasons.  Autumn and spring provide ideal conditions for trekking and peak climbing expeditions.

As Autumn is the post-monsoon season and Spring is the pre-monsoon season, you may expect minimal rainfall during this time. During autumn and spring, the temperature in the Langtang region is neither too hot nor too cold, making it a favorite among climbers.

More about Yala

After a breathtaking 9-hour trip that follows the meandering Trishuli River gorge. This Peak Climbing trek begins at Syabrubensi, 1505m. The walk begins in subtropical forests. But as it ascends higher into the Langtang Valley. The trees thin out and the valley opens out. On the second day, as you approach Langtang Village, 3300m, you can see Langtang Lirung, 7246m, Lenpo Gang, 7083m, Dorje Lakpa, 6990m, and even the massive Shishapangma, 8013m, Tibet’s only 8000+ meter mountain.

The hike to Yala Peak Base Camp, at 4800 meters, is not challenging and offers stunning views. We make our pitch for the summit from Base Camp, which is more difficult if there is snow. The trail climbs to a ridge of rocks, then lowers and climbs steeply over stones. Before the final 40 meters of sheer snow/rock cliff that leads to the narrow summit ridge, there is a flat section.

Some people choose to climb Yala Peak during the winter months (December to February), when the weather is crisp and cold and the views of the mountains are crystal clear, to avoid the crowds. Winter is also a terrific time to climb if you are adequately prepared for the cold.
