About Kyajo Ri Climbing Short Version
Kyajo Ri 6186m is a stunning climb in the Khumbu Himalaya. Less climbed, pristine, technically challenging and equally rewarding, Kyajo Ri is a perfect climb for the adventure seekers. The climb involves some serious technical climbing at high altitude and is similar to a small scale expedition. Climbers aiming for this mountain should be in excellent physical shape and have basic rock and ice climbing skills.
Kyajo Ri Climbing Short Version starts with an adventurous flight to Lukla airport, the gateway to the Khumbu region. We follow the classic Everest Base Camp trail that goes along the Dudh Koshi River through a dense Rhododendron forest and Oak trees towards Namche Bazzar, the capital city of Sherpa. We’ll take an extra day in Namche Bazaar to explore the village and for proper acclimatization. We then follow the Thame valley trail reaching Thamo continuing to Mende and then to the remote Kyajo Ri base camp. At base camp, resting and acclimatizing, our Sherpa climbing guides will set higher camps at Camp I and Camp II.
We have the option of doing a longer version of Kyajo Ri Expedition. Depending upon your time period and previous experiences, we have an itinerary that follows through the Gokyo valley trail, exploring Gokyo Lake, Gokyo Ri and then crossing the scenic Renjo La Pass 5388 m, before we descend to Thame valley following the trail of Lungden, Thame, Thamo, Mende and Kyajo Ri base camp.
The best season for Kyajo Ri Climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around. The duration of the Kyajo Ri Climb can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition will arrange every detail of your Kyajo Ri Expedition; lodge accommodation, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment.
