CHULU EAST PEAK CLIMBING

  1. Chulu East is situated above the Manang Valley with breathtaking views across to the Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu. The climb is technically straightforward and one should be familiar with the use of equipments: crampons, harness, and ice axe, tying knots and handling climbing ropes. Most of the climbing will involve walking roped together, including the glacial crossings. One should be very fit and have good experience of climbing. The climb can be combined with the classic trek around the Annapurna massif, ascending the Marshyangdi Valley and crossing the Thorong La, before descending the Kali Gandaki Valley to Pokhara.
