Chulu West Peak Climbing

Chulu West Peak ClimbingThis trek to Chulu West to the north of the Annapurna range is rather a strenuous trek that requires you to walk 8 to 9 hours a day, often at high altitude. The peak was first ascended in 1952 by a Japanese expedition. Basically there are two Chulu (East and West), and Chulu west is higher compared to East.

The base camp of Chulu west is situated in a small valley north of Manang, off the main trail to the Thorang La. However, there is still a controversy regarding the name and location of the Chulu peaks. There are several peaks close by and are also a part of Chulu massif; but are not indicated in the map well. Hence, it is difficult to differentiate between the two Chulus.

Climbing this peak also requires a basic knowledge of mountaineering, although our experienced Guides will guide and accompany you to the top. Once you conquer the peak you will be rewarded with the spectacular view of Mt. Dhaulagiri, Tukuche peak, Nilgiri, Annapurna and many more.
