Chulu West Peak Climbing

Duration: 23 Days   |  

The Chulu West peak climbing is the most challenging and technically difficult climbing and will appeal to those looking for a real adventure and thrilling climbing trip. Previous climbing experience is not essential but a very high level of physical fitness is required. The ascent of Chulu West and Chulu Central are best made from a base camp in a small valley north of Manang situated off the main trail to Thorong La pass 5416m.

Trekking through to Manang and then ascend to Chulu West Base Camp to begin our assault on the mountain. The climb is long and very challenging and it is necessary to establish two high camps on the mountain prior to making a summit attempt. From the high camps and summit, there are magnificent views of the entire Annapurna range, Manaslu and the wilds of Tibet. The return route crosses the Thorong La to Muktinath and on to Jomson, from where we fly to Pokhara, for a day of relaxation before flying back to Kathmandu.

Go beyond the hut following the yak pastures and walk up a ridge which leads into a hidden valley where it is possible to find a good site for base camp. From this camp, another camp will be at High camp. Climb the rock band with some difficulty to the north-west shoulder of Chulu west. 5450, where another camp can be established or we can make the alternate camp at snow plateau above 5500m. On the first ascent and several subsequent ascents rope was fixed on the rock band. From the plateau continue up the progressively narrowing ridge to the summit 6,250m
