CHUKUNG - Gateway to Island Peak

  • 4,735 meters

Chukung is an important acclimatization spot for trekkers traversing through Kong Ma pass. And if you end up having a rest day too, why not visit nearby Chukung Ri and Chukung Tse? Also, just above the top of Chukung is a memorial of Jerzy Kukuczka,a polish mountaineer who fell in the arms of death while attempting Lhotse from a new route.
