Mt. Chhukung Ri (5550 m)

Mt. Chhukung Ri (5550 m)

Mt. Chhukung Ri (5550m) is one of the highest peaks in the Sagarmatha National Park region of Nepal. The sophisticated beauty is one of the famous, ‘Khumbu three peaks’, and the Chhukung base camp trek is considered to be less dangerous and more adventurous than the other treks in the Himalayan region. Trekkers choose the route through the Everest region to experience the adventures of trekking in the wonderful region of Khumbu. The trek takes longer to complete when headed through the Everest area.

Chhukung Ri, the rocky peak, looks quite similar to the notable landmark, Kala Patthar, located on the south ridge of Pumori in the Himalayan region. The climb can take up to four hours and this trip to the Mt. Chhukung peak climbing can be used to acclimatize for the Imja Tse climb. The area, surprisingly, is less crowded, and the reason for this could be the view. The scenery around the Chhukung Ri is undoubtedly amazing, however the popular peaks such as the Everest, Lhotse, Nuptse, etc. cannot be seen from here. For trekkers who do not prefer the crowd and noises, the Mt. Chhukung trek is certainly a good choice.
