Kyazo Ri Peak (6151m) was opened for peak climbing in 2000. Since then very few climbers have attempted to climb the mountain. As a result, there are still a lot of routes that could well be explored by climbers.

Mt. Kyazo Ri is situated in the Khumbu Himal just north of Namche Bazaar. In fact at the other end of Kyazo Ri, following many smaller peaks along almost a straight line, stands Cho Oyu. At 8201m, Cho Oyu is the eighth highest mountain in the world.

Mt. Kyazo Ri is undoubtedly one of the tallest trekking peaks in Nepal. You will require mountaineering skills to tackle this mountain and thus reach the summit. Along the way three camps will be set up before the final push to the summit. The summit offers splendid views of the Himalayas including Mt. Cho Oyu and the vast expanse of Tibet laid out in front of your eyes.

You will be trekking through the majestic Thame valley and Gokyo valley in Khumbu region. The Everest National Park is a UNESCO heritage site and is home to such rare wild animals such as Himalayan Thar, Snow Leopard., Himalayan Black Bear, Monal, Blood Pheasant, Birch, Firs, Juniper, Blue pines etc. The culture and hospitality of Sherpa people is another amazing attraction of this adventure.
