Kyajo Ri Expedition

Altitude 6186m, Grade 3C

Our Kyajo Ri expeditions begins with the trekking stage at Lukla and take two days over the spectacular walk up to Namche Bazaar. Breathtaking views and a fantastic sense of achievement await our arrival on this rarely climbed summit.

Kyajo Ri is a more technical 6000m peak suitable for those who have climbed Scottish grade I/II or Alpine PD+ The summit day is described as “Starting at first light we make our way to the foot of the fixed ropes and make the exhilarating climb up the majestic series of snow ridges which finish perfectly on the summit. Breathtaking views and a fantastic sense of achievement await our arrival on this rarely climbed summit”.

We will spend two nights at Namche Bazaar to allow time to acclimatise and enjoy the sights of this vibrant Sherpa village. Next we head up to Khumjung and then leave the main trekking routes behind as we climb up on smaller paths into the hidden Thesebu Khola valley at 4470m. Here we will have our Kyajo Ri basecamp and spend a further day acclimatising in a truly awe inspiring setting.

Next we climb to the upper valley and its lovely Alpine lake followed the next day by a climb up to the Kyajo Glacier which lies just below the peak’s South Col.

After a rest day we climb the rocky couloir with its boulders and rock steps and arrive on the pristine South Col. Starting at first light we make our way to the foot of the fixed ropes and make the exhilarating climb up the majestic series of snow ridges which finish perfectly on the summit. Breathtaking views and a fantastic sense of achievement await our arrival on Kyajo Ri  this rarely climbed summit.
