Located in the beautiful Manang Valley, the Mount Chulu East Peak Climbing journey is a rather daunting feat. Peak Climbing is, in comparison, an adventure that takes one step further than just trekking to the base camp. The view from the top of the Chulu East Peak (6429m) and the massive feeling of accomplishment is definitely worth the effort. As such, among the many peaks climbing options in Nepal, the Chulu East Peak Climbing by Himalaya Land Treks is among the best.
Not only does the Chulu East Peak Climbing presents the task of conquering a Himalayan peak, but it is also an adventure that beautifully incorporates the best natural and cultural features of the Annapurna region. Forming an integral part of the Manang Himal, the Chulu East Peak combines with the Damodar Himal and the Chulu West to loom over the river valley. The Chulu East Peak was first successfully climbed by a German expedition team back in 1955. Since then, the peak has seen many climbers who visit the region to summit the colossal giant. From the top of Chulu East peak, views of mountain peaks like Annapurna I (8091m), Dhaulagiri (8167m), Gangapurna (7454m), Tilicho (7134m) as well as the Glacier Dome is utterly magnificent.
Likewise, the Chulu East Peak Climbing is combined with the classic trek around the Annapurna massif, where you will be passing through many ethnic Magar and Rai villages like Tamang, Pisang, Humde and Chame among others. It is also a great way to experience the Himalayan life of Nepal. Use peak climbing equipment like ice axes, crampons, and ropes to make your way to the top. Swerve mountain crevasses and pass through glaciated lakes and icefalls to make your way to the summit of Chulu East. Since the Chulu East Peak Climbing is a difficult and a more technical peak to conquer, it isn't recommended for first-time peak climbers. As such, if you want to experience the thrill of climbing to the summit of a peak, then you might want to give Chulu East Peak Climbing a try.
