Other comments: Chukpa is spoken in Chuk valley, Dirang circle, West Kameng district, Arunachal Pradesh, India. This language has a basic vigesimal system common to Bodish languages; 1-20; multiples of 20 till 400 (= [pʰ ~ pʰuŋhin]); multiples of 400 beyond that; partially replaced by Tibetan terms for higher numerals. From numerals 20-29, 20-39 etc. the insertion dang [daŋ] ‘and’ also seems a loan from Tibetan/Tshangla, it is absent in the Khispi numerals. Classical phonological differences between Khispi and Duhumbi can also be observed in the numerals: Duhumbi pre-glottalised syllable-initial vowels vs. Khispi long syllable-initial vowels, alternation between syllable final /k/ and /p/. I don’t know whether your Dak (Tawang/Northern Monpa, Southern/Lebu Moinba) also show the 400 ([pʰoŋ ~ pʰoŋtʰi] distinction. Khispi/Duhumbi might have borrowed from there.
