Chulu East Peak Climbing in Nepal

Chulu Peak Climbing

Chulu East (6,584 m) is situated high above the Manang valley with breathtaking views across to the Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu. Chulu climb is united with the classic trek around the Annapurna circuit, walking the Marshyangdi valley and passing the Thorong La, before descending the Kali Gandaki valley to Pokhara. Chulu peak 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 Chulu East climbing will be involved walking roped together, including the glacial crossings. Climbers should be very fit and have good experience of climbing.

Chulu North-East Ridge is considered the normal route to climb Chulu peak from a Base Camp on the moraine at 5334m (17500ft). Most climbers make it to the top and back from Base Camp in one long day although some have, in the past, established a Chulu higher camp somewhere below Chulu peak. Another subsidiary peak called Chulu Far East(6059m, 19880ft) may also be attempted from this approach.
