Chulu East (6,584 m.) is situated high above the Manang valley with
breathtaking views across to the Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna,
Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Manaslu. The climb is combined
with the classic trek around the Annapurna massif, ascending the Marshyangdi
valley and crossing the Thorong La, before descending the Kali Gandaki
valley to Pokhara. The climb is technically straightforward and you should
be familiar with the use of your equipment, crampons, harness, ice axe,
tying knots and handling climbing ropes. Most of the climbing will be
involved walking roped together, including the glacial crossings. You should
be very fit and have good experience of climbing.
The North-East Ridge is considered the normal route to climb this peak from
a Base Camp on the moraine at 5334m (17500ft). Most climbers make it to the
top and back from Base Camp in one long day although some have, in the past,
established a higher camp somewhere below the peak. Another subsidiary peak
called Chulu Far East (6059m) 19880ft) may also be attempted from this
