It took us 6 days to trek to trek to Kyanjin Ri and back. For a more pleasant adventure, I’d recommend to take 8-9 days to do more hiking around Kyanjin Gompa and to have more time for comfortable acclimatization. For the more adventurous, it is possible to hike straight back to Kathmandu, over the Kangja La pass (5106m), but as there are no teahouses on this path, carrying your own shelter would be necessary.

This is our path on the map:
