Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing via Gokyo & Renjo La Pass-21 days


Trip Introduction

Join our superb itinerary for Kyajo Ri Climbing especially designed for the energetic adventurers in quest for a challenging trekking & climbing experience. Himalayan Glacier Trekking first organized Kyajo Ri peak in Nov 2008 for a British team of 11 pax, and also for an Australian team of 4 pax recently in 2011. Being the highest point on the massif dividing the Gokyo and Thame valleys, Kyajo Ri summit offers excellent views of the whole Khumbu Region. The Everest region which boasts of four of the world's six tallest peaks Mount Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu is also blessed with numerous lesser mountain peaks, including the Kyajo Ri. Since, the expedition passes through Gokyo and Renjo La pass, the views of the Everest heartlands with abounding natural beauty of shimmering lakes are sure to mesmerize you.
The Kyajo Ri peak with a sharp definite summit is an outstanding climbing peak among the trekking peaks of Nepal Himalaya. In the Khumbu Himalaya, the north of Namche is a long line of small rocky peaks continuing all the way to Cho Oyu on the Nepalese -Tibetan border, and the 6,186 meter (20,290 feet) high Kyajo Ri is the highest summit on this ridge. Although a 6000er, or a trekking peak, Kyajo Ri commands no less respect and preparation from the adventurers.  Kyajo Ri can be attempted through different routes. Unlike Lobuche East or Island Peak, Kyajo Ri climbing route actually ends on the highest magnificent pointed summit. Moreover, trekking through the Everest region offers astounding mountain views, an opportunity to take a glimpse into the life of world famous climbers (the Sherpas), a chance to survey around a world heritage site (Sagarmatha National Park) that hosts a variety of Himalayan floras and faunas, and an opportunity to explore the highest Buddhist monasteries in the world.

Most strenuous ascent of the day is obviously to pass the Mong La, a very charming place perched on the spur of Mt. Khumbila. An ancient historical Chorten stands at the centre of the settlement of Mong La. We stop at the top of Mong La to admire the grandstand views of surrounding snow-capped mountains and valleys while we have our lunch. The most outstanding feature of the trail today is the abundance of plant and animal vegetation including wildflowers and Rhododendrons. Spotting wild lives like pheasants, mountain goats, and the elusive musk deer while on the way is not unusual. Through forests, some waterfalls and bridges, we reach Dole; a small place with few teahouses. Overnight in Dole. (B,L,D).

The path is steep in most places as we pass through thorny bushes up to Lhabarma. Offering us good views of Cho Oyu, Kantega, and Thamserku the trail takes us through many summer settlements and a charming hamlet of Luza (4360 m). While we ascend from Luza, the Dudh Koshi valley is deep like a canyon with its sheer sides. Walking along the hill side above thundering Dudkoshi passing through some small hamlets and through sandy spurs, we reach Machherma. The beautiful stream flowing down from the Kyajo Ri and Phari Lapche mountains runs through the middle of village before draining into the Dudh Koshi. We visit the Himalayan Rescue Hospital here for a lecture regarding the altitude sickness, its precaution, and primary treatment. Precaution regarding altitude sickness is vital while trekking in the high altitude region, however our guides are quite knowledgeable about this. Overnight in Machherma.(B,L,D)

Beyond the ridge the valley widens as the trail passes through a Chorten and reaches Pangka (4480 m) after some gentle walk. Phangka is the palace where an avalanche in 1995 killed 40 people. We descend to the river bank before beginning to climb up to the terminal moraine of the Ngozamba Glacier. It is a steep climb on the moraine. After crossing an iron bridge over an stream the trial levels out as it follows the valley past the first lake, known as Longpongo at 4690m, where we get chance to observe the Lama footprints on a stone. At the sight of the second lake, Taboche Tsho we become mesmerized by the shimmering turquoise blue sheet of water sparkling in the sun. Little ahead of the second lake, we reach the third lake, the two linked by a surging stream. Gokyo village stands by the third lake and Cho-Oyu Mountain as a backdrop sets an amazing spectacular sight here. After lunch, we explore around the third Lakes, Dudh Pokhari. We spend night in a teahouse with comfortable bedrooms. Overnight in Gokyo.(B,L,D)

Thamserku, Khumbila, Kusum Kangaru, Kwangde, Pachharmo and surrounding Himalayan ranges. Kyajo Ri Base Camp is set up between the rocky mountain with flat ground in a side of small river. This is one of the summer yak pasture and a nice place to set up camp.(B,L,D)
Day 12:  Rest Day At Kyajo Ri Base Camp
This is an important phase of the expedition. Proper acclimatization is essential before the summit push.  We take opportunity to hike around to acclimatize and to take pictures.

If the weather favors us, we may also get pleasing sunlight during the day. Overnight at Camp II.(B,L,D)
Day 15:  Summit Day and Back to Camp II: 10-12 hrs
Our summit day begins in the early morning, at about 3:00 am. After light breakfast we start to climb though the rocky part with boulders and after a walk reach at Glacier part from where it's fairly hard to climb. Here the surface steepens up to about 75 degrees, and we climb snow and ice on the Southwest Ridge. There is one short rock section but primarily the climbing is on snow and blue ice. The sharp summit is a narrow wedge of snow. After spending some time in celebrations and taking pictures on the summit, we return back to Camp I. As you know that we are taking south east route and our leader will take you up to the summit and on the return back we should back to camp II.(B,L,D)
Day 16:  Contingency Day
There is no such guarantee that we can get quite a favorable weather on our planned day for the summit (day 16). So we keep this day as a contingency in case if we are unable to summit the Kyajo Ri Peak on day 16 due to bad weather condition or some other reasons. If weather gets exceptionally unfavorable, we would have to wisely postpone the program of summiting the peak on day 16 for toady (Day 17). Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems in acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too. If the trip goes smoothly, we do not need this spare day.(B,L,D)
Day 17:  Trek back to Kyajo Ri Base Camp: 7-8 hrs
We have made it! Today we return back to Kyajo Ri Base Camp, and celebrate the success of our trip. Overnight at camp.(B,L,D)

Day 19:  Trek Namche to Lukla: 6-7 hrs
The trail descends steeply downward so we need to walk slowly and under control as our shaky legs continuously battle the rocky terrain. After crossing the suspension bridges over the fast following Dud Koshi and its tributaries the trail becomes more level and natural. Although we are travelling the same route down, we feel completely different views. We snap a mixture of open plains, rhododendron and pine forests, and in the distance snow covered peaks. Overnight in Phakding. We feel the Sherpa villages' impressive faith in Buddhism and culture of prayer stones and prayers flag while we walk through the villages. Overnight in Lukla. (B,L,D)
Day 20:  Fly back to Kathmandu
We fly back to Kathmandu after our long mountain journey. The flight time to Kathmandu is schedule for morning normally because of the wind in the afternoon.  However, sometimes the flight may be delayed due to bad weather and other reasons.  After arrival in Kathmandu, you will be transferred to your hotel. You can rest and relax throughout the day in the hotel. If interested to take some gifts from Nepal for friends and relatives, you can visit to some nearby shops or venture out in Thamel for typical Nepalese goods which can be assisted by our guides or you can do it yourself too. If fascinated to explore some other areas of Kathmandu you can do that today.  We will be hosting a fantastic celebration dinner together for successful completion of the Kyajo Ri Expedtion!(B,L,D)
Day 21:  Farewell Friend
You are saying good bye to the mountains as your adventurous trip in Nepal comes to an end today! There is nothing to do but trade emails with your travel companions and organize your photos. If you have more time you can do some shopping or sightseeing. Approximately 3 hours before your scheduled flight a representative from Himalayan Glacier Trekking will take you to the airport. On your way home you'll have plenty of time to plan your next adventure in the wonderful country of Nepal. (B)

Please note that often the Kathmandu-Lukla-Kathmandu flight gets delayed by a few hours or may even be canceled for one, two, or more days due to unfavorable weather conditions. Such conditions may arise even in the best seasons. Hence, in such cases, you must be prepared for long waits both at Kathmandu or Lukla airports, as this can happen either at the start or end of the trek or even both!  We do our utmost to avoid such delays, and fix you on next flight. Still, we suggest you to be prepared for possible delays/cancellation, and if possible to come with some extra buffer days (1-2 days) at the end of the trip to accommodate such delays. We also organize heli rescue in such conditions, if it's available and upon request by our clients. The helicopter charges around USD 3500 and it can lift 4-5 persons per flight. If everything runs smoothly and if interested, you can also enjoy other activities like sightseeing, rafting, wildlife activities, shopping, etc during your buffer days.

In case, the flight delay/cancellation happens at the start of trip and it goes so long that it disturbs your onward travel schedule, you are free to choose an alternative trip: such a trek in the Annapurna, Langtang, or any other regions.  If you are not interested in the alternative trip and would rather wait for the trip, you are welcome to wait in Kathmandu for as many days as it takes to get a flight to Lukla. However, please note that there will be no refund, if you lose your time waiting at the airport and do not take an alternative tour or you only do short trek later due to time limitation. If the cancellation happens before the trip, we will provide you accommodation and lunch in a guesthouse in Kathmandu. In case of the flight delay/cancelation after finishing of the trek, you will be responsible for all your expenses. Please also note that you will not be entitled to any refund for the services (such as hotel, transport, flight, etc) included in the package that you would not use later.

Equipment and Packing List

While packing for Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing via Gokyo & Renjo La Pass certain equipments are essential. Please Click here for this trip's comprehensive checklist.

Acclimatization

Our Kyajo Ri Peak climbing itinerary is planned with a high degree of awareness of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness). Going up too fast causes a medical condition serious enough to kill. The higher the altitude the less oxygen there is in the air. For example, on the high camp & at summit, there is 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Your body needs many days to adapt to this less-oxygen environment. Our itineraries generally allow sufficient time to acclimatize. So for a safe trek and climb, it is absolutely essential to allow sufficient time for acclimatization. Sensible planning is therefore required to minimize the risk of AMS. We advise specially the guest(s) with known heart, lungs or blood diseases to consult their doctor before traveling. Mild headaches, fever, loss of appetite or stomach disorder are symptoms of AMS. Check out "Altitude illness" by Dr Jim Duff HGT's itineraries are designed to try to prevent AMS as much as possible, but it is important to remember that some people are more vulnerable than others.

Leader(s) and Staff Arrangements

Himalayan Glacier only employs and train Nepalese leaders and local staff. By employing and training local people they put something back into their communities. HGT currently train all their Guides in the following courses and your Kyajo Ri Peak Climbingleader will be one of the fully train Trek Leader.
  • Intensive Wilderness First Aid - KEEP (Kathmandu Environmental Educational Project)
  • Trekking Guide Training - Nepal Government's Ministry of Tourism & Civil Aviation department of Hotel Management & Tourism Training Centre of Nepal.
  • Eco Trekking Workshop & Adventure Meet - TAAN (Trekking Agents Association Of Nepal)
  • English Language - KEEP
  • Conservation & Biodiversity - KEEP
  • Rock & Ice Climbing & Mountaineering (optional) - Nepal Mountaineering Association

Our Trek Leaders obviously speak the English language but consider this is not our mother language and this enables a HGT traveler to pick up and use a few of the local greetings and get first hand experience of the local culture. The guides and porters know the route direction like the back of their hand, they practice the local culture themselves and they are extremely passionate about their country and it shows.

Our operation is smooth as a safety concern; there will be one Leader, one assistance leader and one sherpa porter on each group of two. This ensure if in case one get sick, it would not disturb the itinerary, the trip still running as plan as in itinerary. And please understand that our group start from 2 and maximum it goes up to 10 which is good team to communicate and facilitate in every manner.

Porters Protection: Each trekker is allowed his/her gear bag weighted not exceeding 15kgs/33 pounds that Himalayan Glacier Trekking strongly stand on porters rights and solely against any exploitation on it's operation. And we are closely working with IPPG (International Porters Progress Group)

Responsible tourism practice: Trekking are gently in the Himalayas during the recent days, areas like Everest, Annapurna & Langtang. We therefore do our best to reduce minimal impact on each trip to the mountain and all Himalayan Glacier trips aim for 'zero footprint' impact on the natural environment and the people who live off it's resources. We enforce a number of do's and don'ts for our customers and staff when out in the wilderness. Himalayan Glacier Trekking and Kathmandu Environmental Education Project (KEEP) had done some clean up campaign in the past and support its other environment awareness activities. read more...
