Looking east from the Pangboche-Phortse trail from 4000m, the Chukhung valley with Chukhung Ri (ridge) can be seen.

Chukhung Ri is directly below the highest peak in the photo, the 8501m Lhotse. The right-hand end of this dark ridge (at 5546m) is where many of our party got to November 1st, when Richard and I were dragging our heels.

November 5, 1997.
