Chulu Far East Peak Climbing

Trip Code: PCE

23 Days

Chulu East Peak

Chulu Far East Peak is one of the easier trekking peaks located at the elevation of 6,059 meters in the far remote highlands of  Manang district in the Annapurna region.   This peak is a part of the Manang Himal under a rain shadow area formed by huge glacial moraines eroded deeply by the wind.
The trekking route to Chulu Far East Peak involves a gradual altitude ascent through the subtropical Marshyangdi valley, its terraced fields, and settlements where Gurung people inhabit. It will be very interesting to experience the ethnic as well as cultural aspects of the ethnic people of the valley with the crossing of rhododendron and pine forests along the route. The ascent is straightforward and a rewarding experience to enjoy the view of Annapurna Himalayan range. The route to the base camp of Chulu Far East is rock-strewn, icy and very stiff.  From Base camp to High camp is also steep. The high camp is set on a rocky platform near a small lake at 5300m. Next day early morning we climb to the summit. The route that we follow to the summit is both rocky and icy, but always steep. So, we need to fix ropes to reach the south- west Col.
From the top of Chulu Far East the mesmerizing views of Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Manaslu, Gangapurna, Chulu West, Pisang Peak including the north part of Himlung Valley can be seen. We fix a high camp near the Col. And then follow the long South-West ridge covered with snow and ice. After the summit, we cross the Thorung La, a 5350m high pass before descending to Jomsom situated in the Kali Gandaki valley. From Jomsom, we  fly back to Pokhara and then Kathmandu.

Trip Highlights

Technically difficult climbing peak, requires crampons, harness ice axe, tying knots and climbing ropes, glacial crossing during the climb, breathtaking views of Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu, first ascended in 1955 by a German expedition team via the northeast ridge.
