Route Description


You can't go wrong really, just head North out of Chukkung village following the only trail. Cross bits of moraine to join the steep grassy/sand slopes and keep going. You can not see the summit from below for quite a whle, but as you get closer you will see there are two summit chortens to scramble up towards. Both are joined by a rocky ridge, the one on the right is higher. 3-4 hours.

Just north of the Chukhung village, do not follow the small western trail, but keep right to get on the much more convenient eastern one.
