The climbing consists of simple scrambling with 25 degrees slope, 180m of snow climbing on a 35-40 degree slope, and 650m of climbing on the summit day. The base camp for Yala peak lies at the height of 4500m, from where you can see a stunning view of Langtang Lirung, Lenpo Gang, Dorje Lakpa, and the great Shishapangma which lies on the Tibetan side. Yala peak falls under the protection of Langtang National Park where you can witness a lot of rare flora and fauna. Rare animals like snow leopard, red panda, Himalayan Tahr, etc. The trail also passes through the lush forest of Rhododendron, and pines, beautiful landscapes, and Langtang River.

No teahouses are available once you cross Kyanjin Gompa and the only solution is to camp. You have to prepare food by yourself. All the equipment like tents, sleeping bags, mats, cooking gas, utensils are very much important in this trek. If you choose to travel through the agencies they will hire a cook for you and also manage the camping for nights.
