Chhukung Ri is a rocky peak, similar to Kala Pattar, above the village of
Chhukung in the Khumbu Region. It takes approximately three to four hours
to reach the summit from Chukkung and it requires no technical expertise.
It is often used, wisely, as an acclimatisation trip by people going on to climb
Imja Tse (Island Peak) rather than as a peak in its own right. The summit
though gives astounding views of Imja Tse, Ama Dablam, Makalu, and
of Nuptse from a unique and up-close perspective and it is a worthwhile
addition to any climbing or trekking itinerary in the Khumbu region.
