Chulu Far West Peak Climbing

22 Days

Chulu Far East Peak Climb is one of our classic climbing holidays in Nepal combined with the famous Annapurna Circuit Trek. Out of the three Chulu peaks, Chulu far east peak climbing is a straightforward yet fun climb and does not require previous technical climbing experience. However, the steep terrain and scree slopes during the approach make it bit challenging. This peak has been often compared to the Island Peak in the Everest region. Chulu Far East Peak Climb offers climber an opportunity to witness the breathtaking gifts of nature. The panoramic views of the Himalayan vistas from the summit of Chulu far east peak include Annapurna II, III & IV, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Glacier Dome, Pisang Peak, Chulu West Peak, and Dhaulagiri. You get to gaze upon the plains of Tibet to the north over the horizon. The trek passes through tranquil landscapes, lush vegetation, and the traditional villages of the Gurung people in the majestic Annapurna region. We have also added Thorung La Pass in the itinerary making it a perfect climbing holiday in Annapurna region of Nepal.

However after your arrival and final preparation in Kathmandu, Chulu Far East Peak Climb journey begins with a long 7 to 8 hours of drive to Jagat. From Jagat, the trek starts through the foothills of Marsyangdi valley following the classic Annapurna circuit trail. The trail takes you through a gradual uphill climb for multiple days overpassing scenic villages of Dharapani, Chame, Upper Pisang and Nawal. The trek then follows the remote trails with narrow ascending uphill climbs to Yak Kharka and then to the Chulu far east base camp. And then, Base camp will be located at 4,800m and the high camp will be pitched close to the glacial lake at an elevation of 5,400m. We also have a full day allotted for climbing preparation and route assessment before beginning our actual climb. From the base camp, it’s a 1260m of ascent to the summit. Our Chulu far east final summit push will be from the high camp instead of base camp as to break the long climbing journey, maximizing summit chances. From the Summit, the view is breathtaking confronting several high Himalayan peaks. After the summit of Chulu far east, we descent to the base camp and then to Manang to complete rest of the journey. We trek across Thorung La Pass at 5,416m and finally conclude the trek at Jomsom.
