The mountain was first climbed in 1936 by a team of Japanese Hutsudōbashi (Mountaineering Club). It was not until 1962 that the mountain was conquered again by another group of Japanese climbers. In 1999, two American mountaineers were able to conquer Mount Jengish Chokusu for a third time.

It is also home to an old monastery that dates back to the 4th century. The mountain got its name from the fact that it’s shaped like a chokusu, which is a type of Chinese cabbage.
