The kyajo ri peak climbing is another famous ridge to climb which covers the highlights villages, and the glacier. Kyajo ridge is a common peak that is situated in the Mahalangur Himalayan range into the depth of Mount Everest, Solukhumbu District, Nepal.

The kyajo ri peak is equally popular as a Kyozo Ri peak climbing in Nepal. It is opened for climbing under the mountaineering section in 2002. The government of Nepal declares to climb kya jo RI Peak as an expedition Mountain. The summit offers a splendid view of Everest (8,850m), Nuptse (7,879m), Lhotse (9,501m), Makalu (8,475m), Baruntse (7,720m), and Thamserku, Cho-Oyu, etc.

Furthermore, the usual ascent to the kya jo ri mountain is magnificent. The British expedition team approached from Machhermo, traversed the Kyajo Glacier, and climbed via the Southwest Ridge. The same climbing route was repeated by a French climbing team in 2003. Likewise, also a Dutch expedition team did the summit successfully over the Southwest Ridge route in 2003.

There are several climbers who attempt or even ascent the Kyozo peak prior to its official opening date. According to our past alpinists, we have designed the kya jo ri peak climbing itinerary carefully to authorize gradual ascending and proper acclimation. The best season to climb kya jo ridge is either April to May or September to early-November months.

13 Day Reserve day for weather contingency

There is no guarantee about whether to get the summit as planned or not. So, today is used as a weather contingency in case we are unable to touch the summit for any reason. If the weather gets exceptionally unfavorable, we wisely have to postpone the program of summiting the expedition Himalaya. Sometimes somebody in the group may get some problems acclimatizing well enough to make the ascent; the day can be used in that condition too.
