Chulu Peak is situated in the Annapurna region of Nepal above the Manang Valley. A comparatively easy climb, the Chulu Peak can be climbed from the East to observe the spectacular views of Annapurna, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, Gangapurna and other snow capped peaks of the Kali Gandaki Valley. A reasonably good physique and proper acclimatization are the only required factors for the climb upto the Chulu East Peak situated at an altitude of 6584 m.
This incredible journey commences from Besisahar followed by the trek to the beautiful Bahun village of Bahundada. From here the trek gains elevation upto Chamje via suspension bridges over the Marsyangdi River. This is followed by an ascend to Bagarchap, a typical Tibetan village with architectural beauty. Next in trial is a further climb up to Chame via thick forests, followed by a trek to Pisang with its incredible rock walls and formations. Then from Pisang, trekkers move upwards to Ngawal village situated at aheight of 3600 m. From Ngawal, the base camp of the Chulu Peak is reached.
Acclimatization at this point is required for eliminating the possibility of any altitude sickness. From the Base Camp, a climb is done to the High Camp which is done slowly due to its mildly challenging nature. Panoramic views of Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and other mountains are constantly seen along the way. The summit is climbed next, which offers spectacular views of the aforementioned mountain ranges and a return are done to the base camp.
The return trek can retrace the same path or can pass through Manang, Yak Kharka, Thorong Phedi, Thorong La Pass, Jomsom and Pokhara to witness the warm welcoming ethnic inhabitants and their way of living. This brings an end to the incredible climb onto the summit of the Chulu East Peak amalgamated with views of snow capped peaks of the Annapurna region.
