Kyajo RI Peak (6,186 meters) Climbing is a striking journey in the Khumbu and Everest region of Nepal. This is the greatest summit that lies on the southern flanks of the Khumbu range and runs north of Namche Bazaar. The summit to the Kyajo RI Peak was permissible by the Nepalese Ministry of Tourism in 2002 AD.
It is a medium technical peak favorable for adventure lovers who seek to climb the mountains. This typical expedition follows two more camps above the base Camp. The scale of Lyajo RI Peak climbing was led by a British and French expedition team. This expedition and mountaineering are the mixtures of moderate rock climbing and vertical alpine ice. The climb proceed an opportunity of viewing breathtaking peaks that are over 8000 meters. It includes Mt. Everest (8848 meters), Mt. Lhotse (8515 meters), Mt. Makalu (8463 meters), Mt. Cho Oyu (8201 meters) and other magnifying high peaks in the Khumbu Himalayan range. Kyajo RI is an adventure that helps to attain a peaceful journey and expedition. It also supports to improve the alpine mountaineering skills and provide an experience of the expedition in the Himalayas. Kyajo RI Peak expedition allows the opportunity to explore the Khumbu settlements, their religion, and local culture. The region which traces Kyajo RI Peak offers several monasteries, Gumbas, Prayer flags and stones to a climber.
This expedition begins from the Kathmandu valley with the scenic view of mountains, hills, rivers, and streams. The flight from the Kathmandu takes to the Lukla which is the gateway to the Khumbu and the Everest region of Nepal. Dudh Koshi, dense forest filled with Rhododendron and Oak trees becomes part of our exploration in this expedition. The reward that we gain from this expedition is a lifetime experience. The best time to commence this climb is from March to May and September to November. It is a challenging climb with the highest elevation of 6186 meters. We recommend an expeditor with good physical health status and quite a knowledge of mountaineering can attempt this climbing.
