Peak Climbing in Nepal » Chulu West Peak Climbing

Chulu East PeakChulu West Peak Climbing is controversy regarding the name and location of the Chulu peaks. There are several peaks forming part of Chulu massif but these are not always indicated on maps.

It is therefore sometimes difficult to differentiate between the two trekking Chulus (East and West) as the group comprises of four peaks, two to the east and two to the west. To add further confusion, Chulu West may also be called Chulu Central.

Chulu west is lies to the north of Annapurna above the Manang Valley and is the highest of the peaks. It was first climbed in 1952 by a Japanese Expedition. The Base Camp for the climb is situated in a small valley north of Manang, off the main trail to the Thorang La. At Chauri Lather we take a narrow, steep trail up to a Base Camp at 4800m. From there we climb steep, rocky ground to a high camp at about 5300m.

There is no technical difficulty involved in reaching the summit, but progress can be slow as the slopes are vulnerable to avalanches in certain conditions. Chulu west Climbing is not technical peak, but if there is some fresh snow, then it is hard to climb chulu west.
