Chhukung Ri Peak Climbing

Trip Code: PCR

18 Days

Chhukung Ri Peak

Chukkhung RI is a rocky peak like Kala Pattar. It is located above Chukhung village in the Khumbu region at the elevation of 5,550 meters (18,209 ft). For those seeking a longer trek and peak climbing at the same time, we offer this adventurous trip in the Everest region. We begin the trip after taking a flight from Kathmandu to Lukla and walk  to Phakding. We gently climb up the Dudh Kosi river valley, crossing narrow suspension bridges which sway above the river's thundering rapids, towards Namche Bazaar. We then leave the main trails and head up to the beautiful glaciated and turquoise blue lakes in the remote and beautiful Gokyo valley.

There, we make a non-technical climb to the top of Gokyo Ri (17,500') which provides us a unique vantage point for viewing the magnificent south and north face of Everest, and its sister mountains such as Lhotse, Makalu, and Cho Oyu. We then cross into the Khumbu Valley towards Everest base camp, over the daunting Cho La Pass. Our next destination is Kala Patthar, a rocky summit with outstanding views of both Everest and the Khumbu Icefall. We continue our walk down the Khumbu valley through lively Sherpa villages and their traditionally- built stone houses, beautifully carved mani stones, sacred chortens and prayer flags fluttering in the wind. As you make entry into the Lhotse Valley, you'll find yourself in the sleepy settlement of Chukung. From there you will hike to the top of Chukung Ri (19,000'), a non-technical walk up on a well-defined trail. The impressive views of the South Wall of  Mount Lhotse and its surrounding Himalayan scenario make Chukhung RI one of the great trekking peaks in the world.
