‘Enjoy the adventure climb on top Chulu East Nepal highest trekking peaks’
The Chulu East Peak 6,584 meters and 21,601 ft high, stands as Nepal's highest trekking peak, proven and listed by NMA (Nepal Mountaineering Associations), where all peak permits are obtained.
Chulu East Peak Climbing has got several route options to choose from. But we have taken the best route for this peak climbing so you can enjoy your holidays to the fullest.
During this trip, you will be away from the popular and famous Annapurna circuit trail. However, you will be on, off the beaten tracks, into pure isolation in the harmony of towering Chulus peaks.
This peak climbing will be challenging in some sections, encountering a few technical difficulties. Please don't worry. We will support you from behind and can be done with a positive attitude and determination.
The Chulu East Peak Climbing grade is PD +. Interestingly, the grading system is taken from famous and popular Alpine Climbing Classification Systems. From French and Swiss grading, PD + means ‘Per Difficult.’
So, it leads to a straightforward climb, walking on the moraine, ice, and glaciers, including snowy sections, with some technical difficulty to overcome. This is why the climbing grade is PD +.
Our adventure begins with an exciting long overland drive towards Nepal Mid-West. It will lead to warm and low areas of Lamjung district at Besisahar, a major tow. But our actual walk begins on ending the drive, a little further from Besisahar town.
As the trek begins heading high and mid hills exploring interesting farm villages, enter the deep wooded forest. Then reach cooler alpine areas at Manang Valley in Pisang. Finally, our adventure leads away from the main trekking trails to reach hidden pockets and a smaller village above the scenic Manang Valley.
With taking time, enjoy visiting cultural farm villages along with grand views of the Chulus and Annapurna mountain ranges. Now, the walk leads to the Arctic zone. Thus, we have designed enough space for acclimatization and practice. The main purpose is to get well along with high-altitude terrain.
After preparation and practice, head for our major goal with a lone haul and ascent to reach Chulu East top. Nepal’s highest trekking peak summit is where you will face a breathtaking panorama of surrounding peaks and amazing landscapes.
Feeling high along with great spirits achieving after Chulu East climb, head towards the Annapurna circuit trail to reach on top of Thorang-la pass. Before reaching Thorang la Pass, you will walk and enjoy time at Manang village.
As usual, the top of Thorang-la faces outstanding views of rolling hills and peaks down towards Mustang Valley. So, enjoy time around there and then drive towards Jomsom after an overnight stop in holy Muktinath and the village.
Finally, the Chulu East Peak Climbing adventure completes with a short and scenic flight to reach the picturesque city of Pokhara. Walk around calm Phewa Lake, stay overnight, and return to Kathmandu the next day.
