Climbing Difficulty

Yala Peak Climbing is the best for the beginning, and ascent to this peak is spectacular but non-technical. But this peak will be a challenge for those people with no experience in walking into high altitudes. Previous winter walking/mountaineering skills such as using a walking axe and crampons are a bonus for this peak. But is not essential as the guides will offer training while you are trekking to the peak. You will have time to learn and practice the skills needed, such as clipping into a rope and walking safely with the group.

The benefits of rain or cloud are less compare to other times. The spring season is the best peak climbing season due to the warm climate, less snow kept. The spring season goes from March to May for a quarter of a year. 

The autumn season begins in late September and finishes toward the beginning of December. It is the second-best and the perfect opportunity for a top climbing experience in Nepal. The delightful rich green slopes of the lower part of the mountains and the clear Himalayas are the significant features of this season.
