Which route do we follow to summit Kyajo Ri Peak?

After visiting several UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu, the 18 days Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing Itinerary begins with a breathtaking alpine flight to the airfield in Lukla. The Kyajo Ri Trek starts at Lukla and proceeds to Namche Bazaar, the capital of the Sherpa people, via a path that hugs the Dudh Koshi River and passes through a verdant forest of oak and rhododendron trees. After acclimatizing in Namche Bazaar, you will continue on the path, which is a gentle rise all the way to Kyajo Ri Base Camp via the lovely towns of Gongla, Phurte, and Mende. After getting used to Kyajo Ri Base Camp, you will ascend to Camp I.

You will proceed to Camp II after spending one more day relaxing in Camp I to get used to the surroundings. Our Sherpa staff at Camp II will do the necessary examinations on your climbing gear and physical condition before moving on to the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak. The next day, you will ascend Kyajo Ri Peak and spend the night at Camp II. The rest of the journey is downhill from this point on. From Camp II, you will descend to Base Camp, then to Namche Bazaar, and lastly to Lukla. After you take off from Lukla, your 18-day Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing Itinerary will come to an end in Kathmandu.

How difficult is it to climb the Kyajo Ri Peak?

At 6,186 meters above sea level, the Kyajo-Ri Peak Climb is a fascinating technical challenge. It is an incredible opportunity for those who are willing to climb a mountain above 6000 meters in elevation, although it is not as extreme as its altitude suggests. The ascent of Kyajo Ri Peak is a unique peak-climbing experience that combines ice and mountain rock climbing. While climbing Kyajo Ri Peak is challenging, there are a lot of additional benefits as well. For individuals who want peaceful experiences, this peak is ideal as it is not often visited by large groups of people.

The trail's slippery and frozen rocks pose a special risk to novice hikers. Trekkers have to maneuver across icy patches or snow-covered rocks. Hence, they must possess extreme endurance and stamina to navigate the rugged and challenging terrain of the area. Altitude sickness and fatigue are also common in this area due to the region's higher altitude and thin air. Because of the high altitude, even seasoned hikers may get altitude sickness. We offer a special schedule that enables you to acclimate sufficiently to prevent AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) while climbing Kyajo Ri Peak.

How to train for Kyajo Ri Ascent in Spring and Autumn?

You need to dedicate months in advance to your training if you want to successfully complete the trekking and climbing adventure to Kyajo Ri Peak. The path requires daily ascents to high altitudes while towing a large load. As a result, the voyage calls for a blend of several tactics, such as strength training and aerobic activities, to increase your body's endurance. One way to strengthen your core and use it while climbing is through aerobic exercise. Stated differently as cardiovascular exercise, it is a prerequisite for being ready for treks and climbs.

The purpose of cardiovascular training is to prepare you for the low oxygen concentration that occurs at high elevations. The adaptation of your heart, lungs, and blood cells to these conditions is enhanced by aerobic exercise. If you reside in a mountainous region, you can wear your trekking shoes and a backpack and go on several hikes each week. Additionally, you can work out on treadmills by gradually increasing the inclination and duration of your workouts while carrying weights on your back.

Major Attractions of the Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing

An exciting flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and back

The 35-minute journey from Kathmandu to Lukla is regarded as a nerve-wracking one that offers breathtaking Himalayan vistas and an exhilarating flying experience. Climbing the Kyajo Ri Peak begins at Lukla. The Lukla Airport is considered riskier than the average commercial airport. Airlines have reduced the number of aircraft that are permitted to fly the route and tightened their regulations around what constitutes an acceptable flight situation. Even with the advancements in passenger safety, traveling to Lukla may still cause anxiety. The rush of excitement, however, makes the trip worthwhile!

A peaceful stroll through Sagarmatha National Park

You enter Sagarmatha National Park prior to Namche Bazar at Monjo. This park is recognized as a UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. There are hundreds of different plant and animal species in the park. The path leads to Namche Bazar over a difficult ascent. The national park's openness to the outside world is embodied in the Great Himalayan Range, which is home to Mt. Sagarmatha (Everest) and other stunning snow-capped summits, as well as sizable Sherpa populations. The spectacular majesty of the high, geologically young mountains and glaciers, along with the area's carefully conserved natural heritage, have made the trip to Kyajo Ri Peak incredibly inspirational.

Acclimatizing in the infamous Namche Bazaar

The Khumbu region's main tourist destination is Namche Bazaar. With amenities like Wi-Fi, excellent connectivity, electricity, cafes, libraries, museums, etc., it is the most developed village in the Everest region. While spending a few nights here, you take a short journey to locations like Syangboche Airstrip and Everest View Hotel to help you acclimate and see stunning vistas of the Himalayan Mountains. With its shops, eateries, lodgings, ATMs, and other amenities, Namche is a bustling marketplace. Every curve in the narrow lane of the Namche Bazaar, frequented by residents, Sherpa vendors, monks, and yaks, reveals a new alternative, ranging from bakeries to museums to temples. 

Discovering the unique customs and culture of the Sherpas

You can observe Sherpas and people from different villages living along the trail. One of the main highlights of the trip that you won't find anywhere else is the inhabitants' culture and traditions. The Khumbu region still adheres to centuries-old customs and has an extremely rich cultural history. Even with all of the tourists in the area, the Sherpas have been able to maintain their old culture. You will encounter prayer wheels, chortens, stupas, and historic monasteries while walking. The reverence that the Sherpas have for their faith and culture is also evident in these centuries-old monuments.

Scaling the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak

Kyajo Ri Peak climbing is an exciting and difficult experience. You establish a few different camps along the way and work your way up to the summit. During tough sections and when fixing ropes, our Sherpa guides assist you. They also teach you the fundamentals of climbing and, if needed, how to utilize gear properly. We ensure that you not only securely ascend to the summit but also safely descend. Reaching the top of the Kyajo Ri mountain is the highlight of this expedition.

    ItineraryTrip day to day detail itinerary

    The trip begins as soon as you land at Tribhuvan International Airport in Kathmandu. You will have a fantastic and unforgettable experience when arriving in Kathmandu on a clear day. You can see a magnificent view of the snow-covered peaks of the Himalayas from the window of your airplane. After the airport has processed your visa, gather your luggage and leave the premises. We will have an airport agent waiting for you at the exit gate. They will provide a private vehicle to transport you to your hotel. Upon your arrival, the hotel staff will greet you and assist you in getting settled into your accommodation. You are free for the rest of the day. Rest or head out to the lively Thamel streets. 

      On Day 2, we take you on a sightseeing tour in Kathmandu Valley. Taking your time, you will explore 4 main UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu, such as the Swayambhunath Stupa, Boudhanath Stupa, Pashupatinath Temple, and Kathmandu Durbar Square, during your leisurely tour of the city today. These locations have notable historical, cultural, and religious significance. Once a royal palace, Kathmandu Durbar Square is a treasure trove of old Nepalese architecture. At the well-known Hindu sanctuary Pashupatinath Temple, which is consecrated to the god Shiva, you may witness the cremation procedures. In a similar vein, you will visit two significant Buddhist pilgrimage sites today: Swayambhunath Temple and Bouddhanath Stupa, which is the largest Buddhist stupa in Nepal.

      After the tour, you can go for any last-minute shopping as you’ll begin your Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing expedition the very next day. 

        After your early breakfast, we'll drive you to the domestic airport in Kathmandu so you can make your early flight to Lukla. After a 35-minute flight, landing at a small airfield in a mountainous area would be an intriguing experience. The surrounding mountains and verdant hills will greet you as soon as you leave Kathmandu. When you arrive in Lukla, our trekking guide will introduce you to the porters and other members of the team.

        After a filling lunch, we will start our walk to Phakding. Your tour guide will take you down a busy street in Lukla. To get to Phakding, you have to hike for 4 hours through forests of pine and cedar along the Dudh Koshi River. Delicious Nepalese food will be served for dinner, and the night will be spent at a Phakding teahouse.

        Note: Flights to Lukla depart from Ramechhap Airport, which is 4–5 hours away by car from Kathmandu, during the busiest travel periods. In this case, we will arrange for you to drive to Ramechhap in order to catch a flight to Lukla.

          At the overnight lodge, we have breakfast before starting our day. Throughout the walk, there are multiple crossings of the Dudh Koshi River. We will resume our hike in the Sagarmatha National Park after lunch in Monjo. You will eventually reach Namche Bazar after several hours of wandering. We travel along the pine-fringed path past the plateau that hosts the Saturday bazaar and arrive in Namche Bazar, a Himalayan village at an elevation of 3,440 meters.

          Namche is surrounded by mountain ranges on three sides and opens up to the Duch Koshi on one. The settlement is the main center of the area. Everything from Tibetan artifacts to mountaineering gear can be purchased here. You can also find multiple fancy restaurants, cafes, and pubs. You’d spend the night at a decent mountain lodge in Namche.

            In Namche Bazaar, we take a rest day for acclimatization today to assist our bodies in getting used to the high altitude. That being said, a full rest day is not necessary for acclimatization. Our bodies ought to keep moving. You can go on a tour of Namche Bazaar, walk to Thame, or explore Khunde. We recommend a few hundred feet of vertical hiking to help you adapt effectively. You can also go to the Sherpa Cultural Museum or Sir Edmund Hillary's Khunde Hospital. It is also a good idea to take a short stroll to the Everest View Hotel and the Syangboche Airstrip. The entire Himalayan range, including Everest, Nuptse, Lhotse, Ama Dablam, Thamserku, and Kusum Kangaru, is breathtakingly visible from these vantage points.

              After having an acclimatization day in Namche, we continue our trekking to Dole by following the same route to the Everest Base Camp until Sanasa. At Sanasa, the trekking routes to Gokyo Lake and Renjo La Pass meet. From Sanasa, the trail ascends up to Mongla (4000 m). From here, you will see beautiful panoramic views of various mountains. You trek steeply descend passing through Phortse Tenga and from there, the trail climbs steeply to Dole, through rhododendron and birch forest festooned with hanging mosses and lichens. It takes about 4 to 5 hours to reach Dole from Namche Bazaar. You’ll spend the night at a tea house in Dole. 

                As usual, the hike day begins with a hearty breakfast at our overnight lodge. From Dole, we will climb steadily along the side of the valley, where the small and thorny bushes give way to scrub juniper as the altitude increases. The trail passes many summer settlements, which are used when yaks are taken to these pastures to graze in the summer months. Ahead of you are excellent views of Cho Oyu, while back down the valley are the peaks of Kantega and Thamserku. After 5 to 6 hours of hike, we finally reach Machhermo and settle into our overnight lodge or a tea house.

                  Before heading towards the Kyajo Ri Base Camp, we take another rest day in Machhermo. From Machhermo onwards there are no settlements providing food and accommodation services. So, you will have to stay in a tented camp and eat food cooked by the climbing brew. Hence, Machhermo is the best place to acclimatize before mountain climbing begins. You can stroll around and go for short day hikes. Overnight at the tea house in Machhermo.

                    After breakfast in Machhermo, we begin our day hike to Kyajo Ri Base Camp. You'll be able to see the Himalayas in all their glory as you go, along with Thamserku, Khumbila, Kusum Kangaru, Kwangde, Pachharmo, and other nearby snow-capped peaks. After a few hours of mountain hiking, you’ll reach a summer yak pasture field, which is where the base camp will be established. The Kyajo Ri Base Camp is situated on a level region at 4500 meters between a rocky mountain and a little river. Once the camping tents are set up, your Sherpa team members will examine your climbing equipment and make sure everything is ready for the climb. Overnight at a tented camp.

                      From Kyajo Ri Base Camp, we continue on your uphill trek to higher altitudes. You'll climb over boulders and grassy spurs. The path in front of you is rocky and steep, with small pebbles and skid stones strewn all over it. You have to go another couple of hours higher to a good camping spot at 5,200 meters to put up Camp I. The campsite will be level, with pleasant views, and situated near the lake's outlet, which empties into the glacier. You will be able to see Kyajo Ri Mountain and stunning glacial lakes. Before moving up to higher altitudes, you will spend the night in a tent at Camp I.

                        After a simple breakfast at Camp I, you head out towards Camp II. This trek involves some strenuous climbing over rocks and glaciers, as well as facing slopes that can reach 55 degrees, so you will need to use crampons and fixed ropes. After several hours of strenuous climbing, you will reach a good camping location at 5,700 meters adjacent to a large glacier lake. As soon as you arrive at your campsite, our Sherpa staff will set up camp and cook some warm meals for you. If the weather is excellent, there will be lots of sunlight during the day making the climb smoother. You’ll spend the night at a tented camp again at Camp II.

                          Today is designated for recovery and acclimatization in preparation for the final summit day in your Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing Itinerary. In order to avoid altitude sickness, ensure a successful peak ascent, and shield against potential bodily and mental ailments, acclimatization is essential. As such, you will unwind at Camp II today and take in some amazing climbs that offer excellent acclimatization options along with the best vistas of neighboring high peaks. You will walk to the nearby peaks and then return to Camp II to spend the night. This will help you get ready for the climb the next day. Our staff will carefully examine your health and other climbing equipment to make sure you are ready for the summit climb.

                            Get ready to undertake your final climb up Kyajo Ri Peak. You have been looking forward to this day with lots of excitement and the day is finally here! Once you're ready, you'll start climbing at 3 in the morning. The objective is to reach the peak before midday because, after that, strong winds may cause difficulties in progressing. As you ascend to the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak, you will traverse several difficult routes guided by your knowledgeable climbing Sherpa guides. After a taxing climb, the top offers breathtaking views of Everest, Lhotse, Makalu, Cho Oyu, Baruntse, Ama Dablam, and other surrounding high peaks. Once you reach the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak, spend some quality time admiring the views in front of you. Don’t forget to click tons of pictures to show them to your family. You’ll then descend to Camp II for your overnight stay. 

                              Once you have made it to the summit of Kyajo Ri Peak, you will head back to Machhermo. It will be a lot easier than the peak day because you will already know what to expect on your return trip. After breakfast, you will start your return trip from Camp II by taking the same path that passes through Camp I, Base Camp, and finally to Machhermo. You will descend rapidly until you return to Machhermo as it is a long day of descent. After sleeping in a tent for a few days, you’ll be spending the night at a tea house tonight.

                                It takes about 5 hours to get back from Machhermo to Namche Bazaar. The trail gently descends to Dole and then starts descending steeply to Photse Tenga (3650 m) passing through rhododendron forests. Then the path immediately ascends steeply to Mongla Danda (4000 m) and gently descends up to Kyanjoma (3500 m) following small ups and downs to the destination. You can celebrate your successful climb with a few drinks once you get to Namche Bazaar. Overnight at a lodge in Namche.

                                  Today marks the last day of our Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing Trip. We prepare to depart Namche Bazaar after breakfast. Our route back to Lukla will take us through the Phakding village. The descent from Namche to Dudh Koshi could be challenging. The hills will continue to challenge your core. Once you cross the suspension bridge, the path will start to level off. We go through the rhododendron forests one last time, gazing at the snow-capped Himalayas. In Lukla, we stay the night at a mountain lodge.

                                    You return to Kathmandu by early morning flight today. You will get one last look at the snow-capped Himalayas on your flight from Lukla to Kathmandu. Take in the last of the views of the hills and mountains. Now you can easily identify the majority of them outside your window. When you arrive in Kathmandu, our driver will be there to greet you and take you to your Thamel lodging. The remainder of the day is yours to spend as you like. You can go shopping for some souvenirs or treat yourself to a spa. Please join us for your farewell dinner in the evening. 

                                      On the last day of your journey, you will be driven to the international airport for your flight home. We have enjoyed serving you during these past few weeks. It is our earnest wish that recollections of your stay in our beautiful country will help you remember us as time goes on. Have fun on your way back!

                                      If you want to take other tours in Nepal such as Chitwan Jungle Safari, Bardia Jungle Safari, Pokhara Tour, or Lumbini Tour, you can start today. Do let us know if you want to take any of such tours as we also arrange those all over Nepal.

                                        While there are advantages to each trekking season, going at the peak season will give you far more than going during the off-season. Therefore, spring and autumn are the ideal times of year to climb Kyajo Ri Peak. In addition to offering the ideal weather for trekking and climbing, these seasons also facilitate smoother travels with adequate facilities along the trail. So, reserve your spot with us for the Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing in the spring and fall without delay.

                                        Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing in Autumn (September, October and November)

                                        Climbing Kyajo Ri in the autumn offers trekkers a once-in-a-lifetime experience as well as beautiful views. The cool breeze and magnificent fall foliage in the background, as well as the sound of birds chirping add to the excitement of the voyage.

                                        Climbing Kyajo Ri in September

                                        Autumn arrives in Nepal in September, while it arrives a little earlier in the Himalayas. This could explain why there are fewer people at the beginning of the month. However, as time passes, the trail becomes increasingly congested, as tourists take advantage of the pleasant weather while attempting to reach the summit. Even though the temperature drops in September, tourists may still feel the warmth in the air. Although the lower hills seem like they're in the middle of summer, the higher elevations are still cold and windy. Hikers can enjoy a wonderful perspective with nearby hills and mountains in the foreground as the fall foliage begins to sneak in.

                                        Climbing Kyajo Ri in October

                                        The month isn't very warm, but the temperature rise is a foreshadowing of the upcoming damp and sticky fall. The days are bright and sunny, which allows for better vision, but the evenings and mornings are cold and windy. In October, autumn is in full flow, with leaves colored in vibrant hues such as orange and scarlet. As the month passes, the leaves on the trail begin to fall, adding to the forest's natural beauty. Hikers passing through the region may encounter wild species such as musk deer and Himalayan Tahr. Because of the great number of hikers, the paths and teahouses are significantly noisier in October.

                                        Climbing Kyajo Ri in November

                                        In November, the weather remains surprisingly unpredictable, so hikers should keep an eye on the forecast to avoid any unpleasant surprises. Even though the days are still warm, with temperatures reaching 12 degrees Celsius, the evenings get chilly. Climbers, on the other hand, reap the benefits of the cold. By trekking the trail at a leisurely pace, you can take advantage of the milder weather. After the mid-season, the foliage on the trees fades, so the views may not be as magnificent as they were in October. The breathtaking views of the snow-capped mountains can still be enjoyed.

                                        Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing in Spring (March, April and May)

                                        At the start of the spring season, there's a blast of cool air and a light dusting of snow. As time passes, things improve. By the end of March, the winter's lingering effects will be gone, and visitors will be able to enjoy beautiful sunny days once more. The weather in the spring will undoubtedly be noticeably different. The weather is often cold at the start of the season, but by the end of the season, the temperature has risen dramatically.

                                        Climbing Kyajo Ri during March

                                        Only at the end of the month can the climber fully appreciate the weather. From here on out, temperatures will be more consistent, with highs of 17 degrees Celsius expected. After the coldest temperature of -15 degrees Celsius, the nights are less cooler and more humid over the region. Mornings are bright and sunny, and afternoons are cool and breezy. With temperatures ranging from -7 to -14 degrees Celsius in the evenings, the weather in Kyajo Ri is typically very cold. The hikers should be prepared for snowstorms at night.

                                        Climbing Kyajo Ri in April

                                        The weather is mostly sunny in April, and temperatures are gradually rising. Evenings and evenings are cool, although not as chilly as they were in March. During the day, temperatures at Kyajo Ri range from 0 to 15 degrees Celsius, making for a comfortable experience. Climbers will find it easier to hike in April because the weather is good. The temperature rises at the end of the month compared to the beginning. The trail will become increasingly congested as the season develops, and tourists may not be able to walk the full trek alone. This is only up to the conventional EBC route. On the plus side, the month brings warm weather with bright sunshine throughout the day. Climbers can enjoy cool and nice weather in April because the cold winter days are long gone.

                                        Kyajo Ri in May

                                        As the month moves into summer, the temperature rises steadily. The days become warmer as the month continues, but tourists should not expect full-fledged summer weather. At the start of the month, the weather is mild and pleasant. The humidity level is relatively high this month, thanks to the rising temperatures. For the most part, the weather appears to be balanced and average, with warm mornings and slightly crisp evenings. Temperature changes in high terrains are noticeable, especially when freezing nights give way to warm air. May is a popular climbing month as well.

                                        Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing in Monsoon (June to August) and Winter (December to February)

                                        The Kyajo Ri climb can be done at any time of year, although, it is extremely tough during the monsoon and winter. Due to the unpredictable weather pattern and frequent rains, the track gets extremely muddy during the monsoon. However, it is not impossible. Even during the rainy season of June and July, guests of Outfitter Nepal have ascended the peak. You may, however, need to pack additional equipment to secure your safety on the icy hill. Similarly, the winter is harsh and cruel. Piles of snow and bitter cold can make the ascent tough. Thus, spring and autumn are the best reasons for your Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing in the Himalayas!

                                        Altitude Sickness during the Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing Expedition

                                        Anywhere in the mountains, altitude sickness is the most common risk factor. Altitudes higher than 3,000 meters can result in this kind of mountain sickness. The tour of Kyajo Ri Peak takes you from the lowest point of 1400 meters in Kathmandu to the highest point of 6,186 meters at the summit of the Kyajo Ri Peak. Every day, you will be rising and falling between these two points. Consequently, Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), commonly referred to as Altitude Sickness, may strike anyone who is not used to high altitudes. This is one of the trickiest parts of the Kyajo Ri Peak hike.

                                        It is important to know how your body responds to high elevations before visiting Kyajo Ri Peak. It is nearly a given that you will encounter some form of altitude sickness while trekking in the Himalayas. The human body is not meant to survive at elevations of 3000 meters or higher, and it will be challenging for it to adapt to the lack of oxygen in the atmosphere.

                                        Among the symptoms include headaches, nausea, a fast heartbeat, difficulty breathing, headaches, loss of appetite, trouble sleeping, blurred vision, and exhaustion. Nevertheless, not everyone experiences altitude sickness since each person's body reacts differently to unfamiliar environments. Altitude sickness can be avoided by following certain guidelines for acclimatization, getting enough sleep, increasing fluid intake, maintaining a balanced diet, and avoiding dehydrating substances like alcohol and tobacco.

                                        Emergency Management and Evacuation for Kyajo Ri Peak Climb

                                        Lukla, which has a decent hospital and an airfield for the rescue of injured people, is not distant from Kyajo Ri Peak. Helicopter access is available to certain parts of the Kyajo Ri hike, however, it is totally weather and visibility-dependent. In an emergency, the team will be in charge of transferring the injured into a safe zone. The objective is to move the patient to a secure area so that an evacuation can happen later. Self-sufficiency and self-management are crucial in the Himalayas, as extreme weather is the main factor contributing to delays in rescue operations.

                                        Helicopter evacuation is an additional choice you get in case of emergency. Your insurance company may be able to help you arrange for a helicopter evacuation, but you will need to get in touch with them directly to initiate a claim and explain the situation. For this, we'll need your name, address, policy number, and the day you paid the insurance policy payment. We'll take the initiative for your rescue. However, the helicopter won't take off unless your insurance company confirms it.

                                        Travel Insurance

                                        We highly recommend that you purchase travel insurance before engaging in any adventurous activities. There are several risks associated with peak climbing in Nepal, so it's imperative to get insurance that can protect you in case of an unplanned emergency. As a helicopter is the only means of rescue in the event of inclement weather or medical emergency, check with your insurance carrier to determine if peak climbing in Nepal is covered. Additionally, be sure that hospitalization and helicopter evacuation are included in your coverage.

                                        Food and Accommodation during the Ascent

                                        The culinary options in the Everest region will be limited, as is typical of remote regions with limited transit options. As a result, you'll have to compromise with your palate. Tea houses, on the other hand, have a wide range of continental and regional specialties to choose from. Most meals consist of non-perishable goods such as cereals, rice, and grains because the terrain is isolated and all food must be brought up to the several towns on foot.

                                        In most teahouses, the menus are consistent. Breakfast consists of bread, eggs, oatmeal, cereals such as muesli and cornflakes, pancakes, hash browns, fries, chapatis, and other meals. The lunch and dinner menus are identical, with items like spaghetti, pizza, noodles, sandwiches, soup, momo, and more. The most common companion to the basic cereal is dal, a cooked lentil soup. Dal bhat, Nepal's most famous meal, is served with steamed rice and can be found at every tea house. Another popular dish you may like is garlic soup, which is thought to aid in acclimating to the altitude and preventing altitude sickness!

                                        A modest wooden bed with a mattress or merely a foam pad, a pillow, and a blanket is provided by most tea houses. Almost every teahouse in the Everest region has solar or electric hot showers. For hygiene, bathe in a pail of lukewarm water heated over a wood fire in teahouses on less-traveled trails. Along the established trekking trails, there are western-style restroom facilities. You'll also have access to an adjacent bathroom with hot showers available 24 hours a day. You will also have a few nights of stay in tents, so that’s something worth experiencing as well!

                                        Sherpas, Guides, and Porters

                                        A Sherpa mountain guide is necessary if you want to climb mountains in Nepal. Once you reach base camp, a skilled and experienced Sherpa guide with competence in guiding climbs will assist you with the ascent. They will lead the way, provide instruction, adjust the ropes, and help you as needed from the base camp to the peak and back. After considering the weather, they will also determine when to begin each ascent. We assign one climbing guide for every two to three climbers, depending on their prior expertise.

                                        The Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing Expedition includes several days of hiking in the Everest region both before and after the summit. Trekking guides make a big difference in the success of your trip to the mountains. For every trip, Outfitter Nepal will provide an experienced hiking guide. Consequently, your party will have a reliable trekking guide who will assist you with navigating the area, booking lodging along the hiking track, interacting with locals, and managing crises.

                                        You'll need a porter to carry your heavy climbing equipment to base camp. You can hike worry-free with our Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing package, which provides one potter for every two climbers. However, a potter can only carry 20 to 22 kg and will only help you get to base camp. After that, you'll have to ask your Sherpa for assistance or carry your own climbing equipment.

                                        FAQsKyajo Ri Peak Climbing in Spring and Autumn frequently asked questions
                                        • Higher altitudes have erratic weather and temperatures. In situations like this, poor weather is a constant worry. Any given day could see a sharp dip in temperature, a dark sky, or even snowfall. The already tough climb to Kyajo Ri Peak will become considerably more difficult if this occurs. A pleasant temperature and days free of precipitation are necessary for easy climbing. Thus, we would not be able to reach the top if there was a big change in the weather or the temperature. Do not fear, though; we have added days for these situations.

                                        • All members of the climbing team, including the porters and guides, will walk together to ensure that nobody gets lost or is left behind. You can use a satellite phone to contact a family member or coworker from a location without service; it's the only and most efficient way to get in touch in an emergency. Outfitter Nepal can stay in contact with our climbers and team members using any kind of communication, including cell phones and satellite. We carry a satellite phone that will be with the climbing leader because cell phones are unable to reach individuals at high elevations in the mountains.

                                        • If unfavorable circumstances necessitate the cancellation of our domestic flights to or from Lukla, we shall have two options:

                                          You can reschedule your flight for the next day. However, if the total number of travel days exceeds the itinerary, you will be responsible for additional expenses such as accommodation and food.

                                          It is possible to take a helicopter flight, albeit it will be more expensive than a regular flight. The cost will change based on the quantity of people, the weight of the bags, and the helicopter's accessibility.

                                        • Tourists should not drink the water from the faucets or streams, even though it is consumed by the people of the Everest region. Although you can purchase bottled water along the way, we do not advise it due to its high cost (about ten times higher than in Kathmandu) and negative environmental effects. Bringing a water bottle to the tea shops and filling it with boiled water is the best option for drinking water. Use a water purifier or SteriPen for extra security. It is ideal to carry a water bottle with a built-in filtering system.

                                        • Be aware that it can be difficult to locate banks and ATMs in the remote Khumbu region. These remote areas are remote from contemporary technologies. Kathmandu is the greatest spot to withdraw cash or exchange currencies. ATMs are available in Namche Bazaar and Lukla, however, they might not be trustworthy. During the Kyajo Ri Peak Expedition, these are the only locations with ATMs and currency exchange services.

                                        • We primarily focus on small groups, with a maximum of 8 climbers per session. It allows us to give every client more individualized attention and care. Please get in touch with us if your group will include more than eight individuals so that we can talk about group rates and unique services. We also urge people to ascend the Peak even if they are traveling alone.

                                        • You can buy climbing equipment if that's something you'd like to have in the future. We offer our combined climbing gear. That being said, you should bring your personal hiking essentials and climbing gear. You can rent some of the necessary climbing gear in Kathmandu if you'd rather not buy them.

                                        • You can climb Kyajo Ri Peak without any prior experience, although it won't hurt to have some. Because the climb is categorized as Alpine PD, mountaineering gear is required for some of the tricky sections. Because your guide will demonstrate how to use these tools before you climb, it's not difficult to become proficient with them.

                                        • From Lukla to Machhermo, you will stay the evenings in teahouses or lodges. Therefore, at the end of the day, you will be able to charge your electrical devices at the location of your stay for a small additional cost. As long as the days are sunny, we will use solar power sources to keep your devices charged after you leave Machhermo and until you return back from Kyajo Ri Peak, charging is not possible. It is advisable to have extra batteries and power banks on hand.

                                        • On the day of the summit, the ascent and descent take 10 to 12 hours to reach the summit and return to Kyajo Ri Base Camp. Kyajo Ri Peak Climbing can take 14 to 20 days to finish, depending on the plan. Trekking to Everest Base Camp or Gokyo Lakes can be added to the Kyajo Ri Peak expedition.
