Mount Kyazori

Mount Kyazori

Kyazo Ri has been listed under ‘A’ category mountains by Nepal Mountaineering Association. Located in the Everest Region, Kyazo Ri is 6186m in height and is part of the peaks that separate Thame Valley from Gokyo Valley.
 
To reach to the base of Kyazo Ri, you will have to trek from Lukla for seven days until Marlung and from there it s a day’s walk to the base camp. The base camp is situated in a pristine, hidden valey of Kyajo Drangka. Along the trail you will be visiting Namche Bazaar (3450m), the capital of Sherpa people,  Mende, Thame (3800m) among others.  
 
Climbing Kyazo Ri is technically difficult, one of the main reasons why it attracts seasoned and experienced climbers. A total of 2 camps will be set up beyond the base camp before the final launch is made for the summit. The summit is approached via south route which has less risk of rockfall or snow avalanches however you will have to tackle scree and giant boulders as well as patches of steep snow and ice.

The flight offers you up close views of the Himalayas and romantic landscapes of hills, farms and rivers. 

On arrival to Lukla, you will begin 3 hours trek to Phakding (2640 m.). You start your trek from Lukla with a gentle climb up the mountainside on the left bank of the Dudh Koshi River. Mt. Nupla (5885m) which can be seen in the distance is a peak atop the Kongde Ridge. You descend a mountainside path that merges into your route to Everest, with views to a wonderful valley to your right; and Mt. Kusum Kang (6367m.) to the far end. Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Phakding to Namche Bazaar (3440 m.) takes about 5 to 5 and half hours. This day you trek and cross the river on high suspension bridges. Beyond Monjo (2800m.) is the entrance to the Sagarmatha National Park which was set-up to protect and preserve this fragile mountain environment. You then ascend quite steeply to Namche and along the way, if the weather is clear, catch a first glimpse of Mt Everest in the distance. You can also enjoy the view of Mt. Kusum Kangaru, Thamserku, Kongde-Ri and Tawoche peak. You can also visit some of the village monasteries on the way of trekking to Namche Bazaar (3440 m.). Stay overnight at lodge.

From Namche the route heads up all the way to Khumjung, a picturesque village which also has its own Gompa at the top end of town. Soon after leaving Khumjung the trail climbs to a large chorten on top of a ridge. This ridge descends from Khumbila, a 5734m peak, said to be the abode of the patron God of the Khumbu region. The trail descends slightly towards the Sanasa and then trail ascends up to Mongla (4000m.). From here, you can see panoramic views of various mountains. You trek steeply descending the pass through Phortse Tenga and from there, the trail climbs steeply to Dole, through rhododendron and birch forest festooned with hanging mosses and lichens. Stay overnight at lodge.

Trek from Dole to Machermo (4410m) takes about 3 hours. From Dole you 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. Ahead of you are excellent views of Cho Oyu, while back down the valley you can view the peaks of Kantega and Thamserku. This is a short day and you will arrive at Machermo in time for lunch.
