 Kyajo Ri (6186m) situated in Everest region: one of the most popular trekking region in Nepal, is a semi-technical peak. It is the highest summit on the southern part of the Khumbu Himal ridge, north of Namche Bazaar.

Only in 2002 was Kyajo Ri Peak opened for expedition which is why the peak seems to have the untouched vibe. Furthermore, the route is free of fixed rope and anchors.

This full-scale expedition climbing peak is relatively harder physically and technically than other popular trekking peaks like Island Peak(link)  or Lobuje East, both of which are a simple one-day ascent to the summit.

Our 16 day long Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing begins with a spine chilling mountain flight to Tenzing Hillary airport at Lukla. We follow the same trail as of the ‘Everest Base Camp Route’ (link) until Namche Bazaar. The trek to the base camp is an amazing experience in itself. Leaving the main route behind, from Namche we trek up the Gokyo Valley to the Renja La(5388m): a high pass from where we enter the Thame Valley. From here, we descend into the valley of Mende. We leave the main trail from here and enter the remote valley of Kyajo Drangka, where we set up our Base Camp south of Kyajo Ri.

Needless to say, climbing this relatively unexplored peak gives a sense of pride. The itinerary is professionally designed and provides plenty of time for acclimatization.

Note: Kyajo Ri is a tough expedition with significant technical climbing at high altitude. Thus, Climbers on this expedition need to be in excellent physical shape and should have basic mountaineering skills. Summit day is very long and tiring.
