Chuukung is a small village in Khumbu.
Chuukung is located at the foot of Island Peak Mountain (see Island Peak Trek)
There are no stores in the village, but the lodges keep a stock of necessities, such as camera film, batteries, throat lozengers, bandages etc - but remember that price rising with altitude, and Chuukung is pretty high.
- Panorama Lodge. has a great sun-room with views over the valleys and mountains beyond, and the facilities are exceptionally clean and well-maintained - a very special recommendation here. edit
- Hotel Yak Land. Is a smaller guesthouse tucked around the back of the village. The rooms are comfortable and clean. The common room is cosy and warm. The food is good, and the service is friendly. Plenty of good advice regarding climbing Island Peak as well as heading over the Kongma Pass. Climbing and walking guides as well as porter services can be arranged. edit
