Trip Introduction

Climb the Chulu West Peak (6419m/21,055ft) and make the dream of peak climbing in one of world’s most beautiful regions (the Annapurnas) come true. There are two Chulu Peaks, East and West. This package is for the Chulu West Peak Climbing. Standing at a height of 6419m, the Chulu West Peak offers an interesting peak climbing opportunity for those looking for an adventure in the Annapurna Region.

Some consider the Chulu West Peak to be one of the best peaks in the Annapurna region. While climbing the peak, we will also be able to enjoy magnifiscent views of Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Annapurna, and other Himalaya peaks. However, climbing the Chulu West Peak requires a good physical condition and a high degree of stamina.
After initial preparations and sightseeing in Kathmandu, we drive to Khudi from where we begin our trek. The trail leads slowly to the Manang Valley, one of the highest valleys of the world. We set up two camps above the Base Camp.After summitting the Chulu West, we return via the Thorong-La Pass and Muktinath to Jomsom. From Jomsom, we fly to Pokhara and drive back to Kathmandu.

Physical Condition & Experience Requirements

Chulu West is not a technical peak but we need good stamina for a long day effort while climbing it. We can climb Chulu West peak without any previous climbing experience and skills of using climbing equipments. But knowledge on using equipment and previous experience would be beneficial although not mandatory because a pre-ice climbing training will be provided to us in Base Camp to make us skillful on using climbing gears such as ropes, ice pick, harness, crampons. The climbing usually requires normally 5-6 hours of walking everyday and some days even 8-10 hours- such as in summitting day. Himalayan Glacier suggests us to get prepared with about 12 Km of walking or jugging exercise everyday before 3 months of our Chulu West Peak trip because on choosing Chulu West Peak climbing trip, we are considering to walk in high altitude and remote area for many days. To join the trip with a good chance of success, we must have lots of willpower, ability to tolerate harsh conditions, reasonable fitness and stamina with sound health. It is vital that participants with pre-existing medical problems or conditions make these known to Himalayan Glacier at the time of booking.
