Chekigo (6257m) shone in the morning sun, seen on the trail from Dongang Kharka to the trail from the Daldung La. The Menlung La is to the left. This wonderful summit is located in a wild area in Khumbu valley, close to Everest. For moment this peak is unknown and just a few climbers reached the top. The first ascent of Chekigo was completed on May 15, 2005 via the west face by Bruce Normand from U.K. and Oliver von Rotz from Switzerland. This area is very easy for access from kathmandu by road. During the trip, you will be able to meet local nepali people from different ethnics group and to visit some very famous religious sites hindu and buddhists like Biju gompa and Kalinchok. The view is very various from green area to the glaciers.
