Kyazo Ri Peak Climbing (6,186m)

Kyazo Ri Peak ClimbingKyazo Ri is located in the Khumbu region just north of Namche. It is the highest summit of a long line of peaks that separate the Thame valley to the west and Gokyo valley to the east and run all the way to Cho-Oyu on the Nepal-Tibet border.

This is the classic trekking peak, seldom climbed, with an awesome isolated base camp. It’s technically pleasing for experienced climbers and the summit day’s climbing had been compared to that of Mt. Ama Dablam,though at only 6,186m it requires much less acclimatization. The normal rote is south-facing, catching the sun, and has few objective hazards such as rock fall or avalanche.

Vase camp is in a pristine, hidden valley known as the Kyajo Drangka, which requires a long hike to get it from Mende, about four km from Namche.
