    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.
