Yala peak is usually climbed in 2 Days from Kyanjin Gompa (3,900 m), camping at Yala Kharka (4,600 m). It’s also possible to do it in one Day, without camping, but it’s a long Day with a pre-dawn start. Yala Peak is very close to the Tibetan border; indeed, one of the border mountains is right next to it (connected by a ridge).
The view from the top includes Shishapangma, the only eight-thousander completely in Tibet.

The Yala Peak Climbing trip is considered basic mountaineering. But due to the high elevation, it is a challenging mountain requiring preparation and training. A.T. Adventures will offer to climb Yala Peak with basic-level climbers – and those who are interested in climbing but are without prior training.
We are trying to make the Yala Peak climb more comfortable by adding an acclimatize trip to Everest Base Camp (5160m) and Kalapatthar (5545m) before attempting Yala Peak. Everyone may attempt to climb Yala Peak without bottled oxygen.
We will have a day training at Yala Peak high camp for those who have not climbed or had prior training. They will be training to use ice axes, jumars, ascenders, descenders, crampons, rope fixing, climbing vertically on the ice, belaying and all the techniques of basic ice climbing. The approach to climb Yala Peak is an alpine of simple to moderate difficulty, where one will have the opportunity to be trained on proper technique for using climbing mechanisms on high mountains.
Yala Peak is often taken as pre-preparation for Mt. Everest. These guidelines will help you to be more comfortable while ascending to the peak.
Basic Training to attempt Yala Peak
- One should be able to hike for 6-7 hours a day.
- One should be able to carry a 35lb backpack.
- We suggest you run about 4/5 miles at home with some load on your back for 2 to 3 months in preparation for this climb.
- You may also use a treadmill (with incline adjustments) for everyday running and walking training.
- If you have an uphill location/mountain, then once a week you should go hiking with a loaded/packed backpack.
- If you do not have mountains or nearby high hills, then use stairs to go up/down whenever you can, rather than using elevators.
