These mountains divide us from Tibet and just over the Lho La Pass, we can observe the large face of Changtse (7,750m). After that, we head back to Lobuche. From Lobuche, we hike towards Chhukung Valley. Chhukung Valley is located unwaveringly under an incredible rock wall that links Nuptse with Lhotse.

To the east, we will view the iced up waves of the Lhotse Shar Glacier above which towers Cho Polu (6,734m) and we will also witness Makalu (8,475m). From the south of the Imja glacier, we will be rewarded by Baruntse (7,720m) and Ama Dablam (6,856m). Our trail will now get complicated once we reach the bed of the pointed icefall beneath the peak.
