The Chulu East Peak lies above the Manang Valley with a total elevation of 6,584 meters. It provides spectacular views of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and Manaslu ranges. The Chulu East Peak climbing is shared with the typical Round Annapurna trek where climbers trekked up the Marshyangdi valley, and then to the world’s highest pass, Thorung La (5,416m) before climbing down to the windy valley of Kali Gandaki and further to Pokhara.
This peak climb is technically straightforward so you should be familiar with the use of your climbing gears or equipment and must be fit and have previous climbing experience. Few numbers of climbers or adventure seekers have successfully scaled the summit of Chulu East Peak since it was opened for climbing. Another secondary peak is the Chulu Far East Peak with an elevation of 6,059m that can also be attempted. This peak climbing trek starts from Besi Sahar after driving from Kathmandu for 7-8 hrs. Then, the route is gradually uphill through the Marshyangdi River valley and at the end, it takes you to the village of Pisang from where the main trail will lead you up to the Chulu East Base Camp.
