Chulu East Peak Climbing

Chulu East Peak Climbing lies at south east of Chulu west with a height of 6,584m placed in Manang valley. Chulu East Peak together with Chulu West peak forms a vital part of Mangang Himal which finally get included in Damodar Himal.  The first ascend over Chulu peak was done in 1955 by a German expedition team via north ridge. The Chulu peak climb is the best option for the adventure seekers who want to extend their trekking experience in Annapurna region. Chulu peak climbing can be a complex for the first timers as it demands for technical knowledge about use of ice axe, crampons and rope for climbing. For climbing this peak you should be in perfect physical condition. The path winds around Yak pastures, diverse range of flora and fauna and beautiful village settled by friendly and warm hearted Sherpa people. In the whole trial grand Himalayas like Annapurna II, III, IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Tilicho Peak, Manaslu and Dhaulagiri will play hide and seek endowing us with their aesthetic beauty.

The main route to this peak diverges from the trial that leads to Thorang La pass. We will surpass the village of Manang and base camp is establishd in a small valley in the north. From the base camp we will follow the supplementary Northwest ridge that ultimately takes us to the summit. Due to the difficulty of establishing camp in the slope above the base camp, usually ascend and descend over the peak is done in the same day.
