The Chukhung Ri peak climb is not a challenging peak for climbers. It’s is a rocky peak, a destination for an acclimatization ascent by groups before climbing the highest peaks. According to the Himalayan standards, Chukhung peak is small and doesn’t need technical expertise. Our climbing itinerary covers perhaps the most incredible scenery of mountain-high passes of the Everest region, Nepal.

As part of climbing, you can see the tallest mountains, the high mountain villages, dazzling landscapes, lush green forests, and some of the former Buddhist monasteries en route. Furthermore, it has a great possibility to experience the local Sherpa cordiality. Moreover, tourists can feel a similar experience to climbing the Kongma La Pass summit (5,535/18,099 feet) which does not require past hiking experience.

Chukhung Ri climbing Review

Chhukung Climbing Journey

April 10, 2022

I and my wife booked a Chhukung peak climb after reading the nice stories and reviews of Gokyo Treks and Expedition company. It was our first time in Nepal after Covid-19. Although it is a high climbing season, there were very less trekkers in the Everest zone because of coronavirus travel restrictions.

Our guide was Kaji Sherpa and Dewan Rai was a porter. Both of them were nice and friendly. Ammar, the owner of the agency was a friendly and honest person I ever met, replied to all of my questions, and offered the best deal. Luckily we had good weather, so our flight to Lukla and return was on time.

Besides trekking, Ammar guided us to Kathmandu world’s heritage sites. Thanks, Ammar for arranging a great travel plan for us. We are hoping to be back for our next trip to the Himalayas some years later.
