Mt.Yubra peak climbing (6035m)

Welcome to Gurla Mandata

Mt.Yubra peak climbing (6035m)

Mt.Yubra peak is situated north of Kathmandu valley and near by Mt. Langtang Lirung. Yubra Himal literally means ‘covered with snow’ and, hence, usually refers to a snow-covered area, rather than to one summit only.Mt. Yubra Himal reference designates a comparatively flat glacier area which is 3 to 4 km long and up to 1.5 km wide. This glacier area is around 6000meter high from sea level.

Also, Mt.Yubra peak is only just visible over the Lirung Glacier from Kyanjin Gompa. Take the short hiking up to Mt. Kyanging Ri 4,773meter, however and the view of the route to the peak opens up. From Kyanjing Gompa the approach follows the right side of Lirung Glacier to reach the end of the steep Yubra Glacier.

Avoiding the ice, the route follows a steep drain far to the left which also requires some scrambling & hand work to climbing. The glacier flattens out in a snowy which can be crossed to make a high camp. The ridge can be joined from the northern most edge at the head of the glacier. A 3 AM start should bring climbers to the summit around 8:30 am. So, fixed ropes might be need on some sections of the ridge.,
Summit of Yubra Himal, the views towards the surrounding peaks, Ganesh Himal, around Langtang and Tibet area are fantastic. TWEET

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini,  Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal has highly diverse and rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains. This also includes the highest  mountain Sagarmatha. It is known as Mount Everest in English. The fertile and humid south is heavily urbanized. It contains over 240 peaks. They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men as well as women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths.
