Overview

Just like the other complementary peaks Lobuche Peak, Mera Peak, and Island Peak, the Kyajo Ri Peak is also open for the climbing adventure. Opened for climbing in 2002, this peak was first scaled by the Franco/British expedition team. From then onwards, this peak has been subsequently welcoming climbers.

With a stunning height of 6186 meters, this peak is located right between the Gokyo and Thame valleys of the Everest region. This peak doesn't receive visitors like its counterparts, but we can't deny the fact that this peak provides an unforgettable expedition experience.

To be honest, this adventure requires mountaineering skills with some experience in climbing. In this climbing, the climbers will find several difficult technical sections to overcome which will be a bit hard for the beginner climbers. So for that reason, we recommend this climbing to more experienced climbers. If you have enough experience in climbing and have proven strength and endurance, then this peak climbing is a go-to climb for you.

While you have to pass through different difficult phases in this climbing journey, you will need to have perfect guidance and a positive environment around you. So, to help you in every step and create a confident environment, Trek Ways Nepal is always ready.

With us, you don't have to worry about any kind of situation as we have always been able to figure out the challenges and ways to overcome them. Further, to give you more information about Kyajo Ri Climbing, we have managed to put all of the information and gather in this single page. We believe that you will go through all of the details and ask us questions if there are any confusions relating to this climbing adventure. So please proceed forward-

Itinerary

Today your journey to Kyajo Ri will begin as you will land at the Tribhuvan International Airport.

Then after you reach the hotel, you will be welcomed by the staff members and head towards the hotel room to rest your jetlagged body for a while. Once your body has had enough rest, you can go to the marketplace to get all of the equipment and supplies you need for the climb, and then spend the remaining time exploring the street.
