Chhukung is a scenic village settlement lying in the beautiful landscapes of the Khumbu region. Located on the southern slopes of Nuptse and Lhotse, the Chukhung Valley is naturally diverse. Chhukung extends beyond Dingboche, and there is a beautiful Imja Khola that passes through the village. There are Himalayan glaciers, including Lho Glacier and the Nup Glacier, in the valley as well.
Chukhung village was traditionally a yak pasture with no human settlements. As Imja Tse mountain peak climbing gained popularity, this village rose in prominence as well. It is now an excellent spot for acclimatization while taking a side trip from EBC trails. There are many accommodation spots, including teahouses and lodges that serve trekkers and climbers.
Altitude sickness is a challenging aspect in this high altitude region as it lies above 4000m. These altitude illness symptoms include nausea, headache, dizziness, insomnia, breathing difficulty, etc. These various conditions can turn out to be quite severe and challenging if not taken seriously. Some of these conditions can turn life-threatening without any adequate treatment.
Besides that, you may need to face various physical injuries and other medical conditions while trekking. Hypothermia, dehydration, cuts, and sprains are some of the physical challenges of an adventure in the mountains. Helicopter rescue is therefore ideal in situations like these.
