Chhukung Ri Peak Climbing (5,550m)

Chhukung Ri  Peak ClimbingChhukung Ri is a rocky peak, similar to Kalapathar, above the village of Chhukung in the Khumbu region. It takes three to four hrs. To reach the summit from Chhukung and its requires no technical expertise.

It is often used, wisely, as an acclimatization trip by group going on to climb Imja Tse rather than as a peak in its own right. The summit though gives astounding views of Imja Tse,Ama Damlam,Mt.Makalu and of Nuptse from a unique and up-close perspective and it is a worthwhile addition to any climbing or trekking planned in the Khumbu region.
