Chekigo Peak Climbing

Mt. Chekigo Peak (6257m), also called Mt. Chekijo, is one of the newly opened trekking peaks in Nepal. Located between Khumbu and Rolwaling Valley, the peak is surrounded other popular peaks, such as t. Gaurishankar (7134m), Mt. Tengi Ragi Tau (6943m), Mt.Dragkar Go (6793m) and Mt. Bisphero Go Shar 6729m among others.  

As compared to other peaks, Chekigo is  is one of the least climbed trekking peaks in Nepal and hence journey to the peak takes you into off the beaten path. In terms of challenge, Mt. Chekigo offers double whammy for real adventure seekers.

Not only is Mt. Chekigo a strenuous climb but a part of challenge also involves crossing Tashi Labsta La pass (5755m), one of the highest passes in the Himalayas. The view from the pass offers outstanding panorama of all the afore mentioned Himalayas including Mt. Chekigo.

The push to the summit of Mt. Chekigo will be launched  from the base camp at 5400m. A minimum of two camps will be prepared before final leg to the summit. Climbers will have to negotiate through a bundle of snow, ice and rock. The time required to summit the Mt. Chekigo and return to the base camp is 9 days.  

Much of the trekking will be through Rolwaling Valley that  will offer a plethora of cultural and natural attractions. Prepare for some wild adventure into the pristine biodiversity and a land of unique hospitality.
