Part of challenge of climbing Chekigo is involved in crossing Tashi Labsta La pass at 5755m altitude. The view from the pass offers outstanding panorama of Mt. Tengi Ragi Tau (6943m), Mt.Dragkar Go (6793m) and Mt. Bisphero Go Shar 6729m among others.  
 
The base camp will be set up at 5400m and a minimum of two camps will be prepared before final push for the summit.

Chekigo and returning to Chekigo Base Camp. 
 
The trekking through Rolwaling Valley will provide you a unique cultural and natural experience as the area also falls into Gaurishankar Conservation Area. Trek will be entirely teahouse/camping.
