About Trip:

If you would like to experience a real challenge along with your Himalayan adventures, then join us for peak climbing in Nepal, theworlds’ greatest destination for exploring the mountains. The Himalaya offers the best option for getting naturally high and achieving your dreams while strengthening your mountain skill-set and resume.

Naya Kang and Yala are two trekking summits located in the popular Langtang Region, famous for its trekking trails and natural beauty. The mountain landscape and scenic views offer the chance to experience the dreams of a lifetime by peak climbing in the Himalaya. At 5732 m/19105 ft, Yala Peak is the lowest in elevation of Nepal’s 33 trekking summits of and relatively easier and less strenuous but still higher than most of the tallest peaks in countries outside the Himalaya. Naya Kanga is 5844 m/19,173 ft and nearby from Yala and a greater challenge.

Although these peaks require no previous experience in mountaineering, they will be physically demanding and suitable for people feeling acclimatized and fit. From the peaks you will have the most thrilling viewpoints possible of the breath taking mountains of Nepal and Tibet and the valleys below them.

The panorama includes the Langtang Range and much more.The route to the Yala peak first follows the legendary Langtang Valley trek and continues from the picturesque settlement of Kyangin Gomba. We ascend through yak pastures to the highlands were we set up a high camp at 4,400 m/14,430 ft. From this camp, the route climbs to the summit where we enjoy our accomplishment. Our triumph is rewarded with an unimaginable panorama!

We follow up Yala Peak with an exciting ascent of Naya Kanga and more exhilarating views. We then we take on the thrilling Ganja La high pass 5106 m, 16,740 ft out of the Langtang Valley and into the serene Helambu Region. We trek out through the scenic villages of the unique Yolmo people and their Buddhist culture!

The climbing itinerary is designed with careful attention by our professional climbers to safeguard a gradual rate of ascent with proper acclimatization.

The best seasons to climb Yala and Naya Kanga peaks are March to May and September to early December. We have no fixed departure dates, just let us know your preferred schedule and we can accommodate accordingly.

Trip Note

The above itinerary should be taken only as a guide line; since we will be trekking on some of the most remote terrain on earth, it could change due to weather, availability of clean water and campsite, trail or any other unforeseen conditions. In the event of this happening, your senior guide will make the final decision after consulting with the group.


Your Sherpa Crew

At Himalaya Hikes, our Sherpa crews are critical to the success of your treks & climbs that you do with us. We us professionally trained Sherpa guides & sirdars who are just not hikers & climbers on the mountains but have been trained to perform this task with a lot of common sense & guile. We ensure that they are confident & experienced in leading ventures into some of the most isolated parts of Nepal. Most of our guides were born in these parts & have relatives living on other parts of the regions where they were born in.

We know that locally born staffs are a vital cog in that wheel of sometimes dangerous adventure where anything can happen.

Trekkers benefit a lot from local guides who have the local knowledge that can give you deep insights into the local culture where you understand the lifestyles of communities of the areas you hike through. Your travel is also directly supporting local communities, creating employment & giving back to the local folks as you travel through their districts & regions.

All of our local crew, guides, sirdars & porters all have critical first aid training & even possess the abilities to save your life in the most serious of conditions. At Himalaya Hikes, we always make sure that our mountain crews are highly motivated & never compromise on the facilities they deserve.
