Chulu Peaks is situated high above the Manang valley west-north from Kathmandu with breathtaking views across to the Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu. Chulu far East Climb is united with the classic trek around the Annapurna circuit, walking the Marshyangdi valley and passing the Thorong La, before descending the Kali Gandaki valley to Pokhara.

Chulu peaks have many summits Chulu West, Chulu East, Chulu North, Chulu south, Chulu far east and Chulu center.

Chulu East climbing is technically straightforward, and you should be familiar with the use of your equipment, crampons, harness, ice axe, tying knots and handling climbing ropes. Chulu west is long and many mountain terrace so that people are choosing CHULU FAR EAST 6429 m. That peak is the best option and 100 % success rate. 

Chulu Far east is not technical, but you need to fix high camp and many Kharpas. Chulu Far East is easier to climb for beginners. To climb Chulu Far East is the same process as Chulu east. We need to collect Chulu East permit to climb Chulu Far East.

Asian Hiking Team organizes the Chulu Far East climbing to fix the High Camp and push the summit. The itinerary starts from Besisahar, but now a seasonal road goes to Chame or continues to Manang. However, we recoment to our clients start trek from Chame because of high altitude acclimatization. After finishing climbing our itinerary brings you Annapurna circuit Thorong La pass end trek in Muktinath and drive to Pokhara or continues trek to Nayapul. But if you have a short time, you can return the same way.
