Trip Overview

Trip facts

  •    Country: Nepal

This challenging trekking & climbing expedition is located in the Mahalangur range of the Khumbu region. The Government of Tourism of Nepal opened this route from 2002 and since then the peak expedition to Kyajo Ri (6186 m) has been very popular. It was first climbed by the Franco British team in 2002.

This peak can be attempted from different ways via southwestern ridge, southeastern ridge, and north but we will be heading from easiest and mostly adapted route - southwest ridge. Summiting to this recently opened peak Kyajo Ri is the combination of ascending rocky terrains and climbing through alpine snow steps. From the sharp edge of the summit, you get the spectacular views of the whole Khumbu Valley including dynamic views of Everest (8848 m), Mount Lhotse (8516 m), Mount Makalu (8463 m), Mount Cho Oyu (8201 m) and many snowcapped Himalayas.

This 17 days journey begins from sightseeing few heritage sites of Kathmandu and taking a scenic airstrip to Tenzing Hilary airport, Lukla. First, we will be acclimatizing by a small trekking to Phakding and the next day following the trial of Dudh Koshi River, we head to NamcheBazar where mostly Sherpa communities reside.

Next day to acclimate the altitude - we visit the Sherpa village and make our way to the hotel - Everest top view from where we get the spectacular view of Mount Everest. Continuing trekking the next day and crossing few of Sherpa villages, we head to Kyajo Ri Base Camp which almost takes a day. The following day we will again be acclimatizing the altitude. Again trekking through the rocky terrains we head to Camp I and take plenty of rest for acclimatization for a day or couple. Slowly we are headed trekking to Camp II. The next day we begin to summit Kyajo Ri and after successful completion, we retrace back to Camp II, Camp I, to Kyajo Ri Base Camp, then to Namche, again to Lukla and finally take an airstrip to Kathmandu.

The auspicious time for this expedition would be in spring (March-May) and autumn (September-November). You can also dare in winter if you can survive the harshness of freezing cold temperatures to avoid crowds or else you can attempt in the specific season mentioned which are almost perfect.
