Mt. Yala is located in the Lantang Himal Region of Nepal. It is one of the easiest trekking peak to climb and often climbed along with its neighbor Naya Kanga, the summit has uninterrupted spectacular view of Langtang Lirung, Lenpo Gang, Dorhe Lakpa (6966m) and the mighty Shishapangma (8013m) which is mae up of three sister peaks quite similar in hights with two pinnacles with their respective height of 8008m and 7970m, sit 200m and 400m to the northwest of the main peak. Since it lies very close to the Tibetan border you also get some amazing views into tibet. This peak is usually climbed in two days from Kyanjn Gompa with a high camp at Yala Kharka but it is also possible to do it in a single long day with pre-dawn  start and good acclimatisation. This peak is great choice for those who have few people and without experiencing too much technical difficulty.
