Chulu Far East Peak Climbing the First climbed in 1955 by a German expedition via the north-east ridge, the peak of Chulu East, together with Chulu West, forms an integral part of the Manang Himal, which in turn is part of the Larger Damodar Himal. Chulu East, which lies to the south-east of Chulu West is a comparatively smaller peak.
Our trek follows the Chhetaji Khola to reach a campsite at Yak Kharaka at 4000m. From there to the Chulu Far East Base Camp the trek is very steep. The Base Camp is set above a waterfall at 4700m and as we aim to arrive by lunchtime the afternoon can be spent on an acclimatisation climb. Base camp to our high camp is also steep, the high camp set on a rocky platform near a small lake at 5300m. Next morning we climb to the summit along a route which is both rocky and icy, but always steep so that we need to fix ropes to reach the south- west col. From there a snow ridge continues to the summit where the view takes in Annapurna II, III, IV, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Pisang Peak, Chulu west and the north side Himlung Valley.
