The altitude of the peak is 6,510 m.[1] The peak lies to the south of Ralam pass and north west of Panchchuli. The peak is so named due to the peak having four corners.

Chaudhara is situated at the south east end of Kalabaland Glacier-Sankalp Glacier-Yangchar Glacier group. Chaudhara is the part of Himalayan massif between Ralam and Lassar valley.
