Chulu East Peak (6,060m)

Chulu Far East Peak is one of the most popular and relatively easier peak-climbing experiences in the Annapurna Region, Nepal. A German Expedition team first ascended it in 1955. The 16 days Chulu Far East Peak climbing passes through some snowy terrains to the southwest edge surrounded by a ring of mountains. The summit at the elevation of 6,059m/19,880ft offers amazing views of Annapurna massif, Pisang Peak, Gangapurna, and Chulu West.


The unique trail commences with a drive from Kathmandu to Chame, headquarter of Manang District. The climb starts with a hike from the Base Camp to the High Camp before finally conquering the Chulu Far East Peak summit. Diversity in flora and fauna can be seen with a shift in scenery from rugged dry trails to snowy slopes. It is the best experience for a practiced trekker who wishes to board their first mountain climbing in Nepal.


Chulu Far East Peak Climbing is a 16 days blended trekking and climbing experience in the less technical peak of the northern Annapurna region. It starts with a drive to Chame, traverses through ethnic Manangay villages, reaches the Chulu Far East Peak summit, and concludes with a drive to Kathmandu from Chame. The trip’s main highlight is climbing to the summit of Chulu Far East and being offered close-up views of the Annapurna range.


After arrival at Tribhuvan International Airport, you will visit the UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Kathmandu. You will prepare for the trek on the same day. A drive through the Prithvi Highway and the Marsyangdi Valley will take you to Chame.


From thereon, the trek commences to Paungada Danda, walking beside Marsyangdi River to reach Lower Pisang. Trek heads through the rugged terrain of the Humde Village with the only airport in the district. Witness the longest Mani wall in Humde. From there, walk-through pine and oak forests to Julu Khola. On the way, visit the Lophelling Monastery and She Gompa.


After an acclimatization day in Julu, head to the Base Camp of Chulu Far East. After a challenging trek, take a rest day again and engage in some pre-climbing training from the guide. On the tenth day, make a climb to the High Camp passing through snowy slopes.


From the High Camp climb to the Summit on the following day. Witness the panoramic views of Annapurna Range, Gangapurna, Pisang, and Chulu West. Head back to the High Camp after conquering Chulu Far East Summit. From there, trace the route back via Humde village to Chame. Take a drive from Chame to Kathmandu for final departure.
