Chulu East Peak Climbing

Chulu East Peak ClimbingChulu East Himalaya (6,584 m.) is situated high above the Manang valley in Annapurna Circuit Trek Area Nepal with breathtaking views across to the Annapurnas II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu. The Chulu East Mountain climb is combined with the classic trek around the Annapurna massif, ascending the Marshyangdi valley and crossing the Thorong La, before descending the Kali Gandaki valley to Pokhara. The climb is technically straightforward and you should be familiar with the use of your equipment, crampons, harness, ice axe, tying knots and handling climbing ropes. Most of the climbing will be involved walking roped together, including the glacial crossings. You should be very fit and have good experience of climbing. Chulu East to the north east of the Annapurna Range is an ideal objective for those extending their climbing experience beyond the trekking peaks of the Everest region. It is also well suited for an expeditionary style ascent with group members playing an active role in establishing the intermediary camps while preparing for the summit. Appreciating the delights of our approach trek in the Annapurna region we gradually ascend to the Manang Valley. After establishing base camp we plan our two intermediary camps on the North East Ridge. While our team of Sherpas provide support, group members will be encouraged to load carry and establish the high camps in order to improve acclimatization, fitness and for optimum chances of summiting. The final ridge climb to Chulu East is technically straightforward - with rewarding views south to the Annapurna and north to peaks that define the border of the vast Tibetan Plateau.
