Trip Highlights
Exotic adventure into the high valleys of Manang diverse picturesque scenery, from the paddy terraces to the high artic terrain, constant views of the world's highest mountain range including Annapurna, Manaslu and Dhaulagiris, World's deepest Gorge in the backdrop of traditional Buddhist culture, charming villages in the ancient trans-Himalayan trade route.


We have chosen this wonderful adventure starting from the town of Beshishar, where most of Annapurna circuit trek starts, allowing us to see bit more of the interesting agricultural landscapes that makes up so much of Nepal's lower valleys.

Chulu East (6,200 m.) is situated high above the Manang valley with breathtaking views across to the Annapurnas II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu. The climb is combined with the classic trek around the Annapurna massif, ascending the Marshyangdi valley and crossing the Thorung La, before descending the Kali Gandaki valley to Pokhara. The climb is technically straightforward and, you should be familiar with the use of your equipment, crampons,  harness, ice axe, tying knots and handling climbing ropes. Most of the climbing will be involved walking roped together, including the glacial crossings. You Should be very fit and have good experience of climbing.

These peaks form part of Manang Himal, which are quite rightly included in the larger Damodar Himal, the eastern limit of which runs south from Chako and Peak 6,687m in a north-to-south direction along the Hunlung Khola and Phu Khola (stream). To the south it is bounded by the Marsyangdi Khola and Mesokansta La. To the west its limit is the Kali Gandaki and to the north the Parchekya La (5,447m). There exists considerable confusion with regard to the name and location of the Chulu peaks and what summit actually constitutes Chulu West and Chulu East, since it soon becomes apparent to anyone that has climbed in the range that several other summits close by, which are actually part of the Chulu massif. For the sake of clarification, four summits can be included in the Chulu group, two which are possible on the permit for Chulu West and two on the Chulu East permit. What is apparent is that the available trekking map is highly misleading. The highest of these peaks, marked Chulu West (6,630m) on the trekking maps, has a recorded altitude from at least tow expeditions of nearer 6,400m: this might be more accurately be called Chulu Central. The NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Association) gives this an official altitude of 6,429 meters. South-east of this highest summit is a lower peak that can rightly be termed Chulu East. Most of the trekking maps give this an altitude of 6,200 meters (20,341ft), although the official height is 6,584 meters ( 21,601ft). However, continuing two miles east along the ridge is another peak, well seen from the airstrip at Ongre (Hongde) and separated from the East Peak by a col which is 5,608 meters (18,000ft). This summit has an attitude nearer 6,059 meters (19,880ft) and should really be termed Chulu Far East and many trekking agencies picture it in their brochures, mistakenly, as Chulu East.
