Chulu East Peak (6,584m/21,601ft) is a popular trekking peak located in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It offers stunning views of the Annapurna, Dhaulagiri, and Manaslu Himalayan ranges. The climbing route starts from Bensisahar and follows the Marsyangdi River valley through a variety of landscapes and cultures. After crossing rhododendrons and pine forests, we reach the upper valley where the Manangba people live.

 We then branch off the Annapurna Circuit Trail at Pisang into an uninhabited region, following a ridge through pine forests, yak pastures, and mani walls toward the Chulu East Base Camp. The climb involves glacier crossing and a steep ascent to the summit. Most of the climbing is done roped together.

From the summit, we witness surreal views of Annapurna II, III, and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak, Manaslu, and other peaks. After relishing the views, we descend back to Base Camp the same day. The descent continues into the Manang Valley, visiting the ancient Buddhist Braga Monastery uniquely built into a cliff. The trail then follows a wide path through Juniper forests where we may spot wildlife like blue sheep and barking deer.

Chulu East Peak Climbing Difficulty

Chulu East Peak (6,584m/21,600ft) is considered a moderate trekking peak suitable for fit and adventurous climbers with some prior mountaineering experience. It is generally less technical compared to other peaks in the Annapurna region. The climbing route involves glacier crossing and a steep ascent to the summit.

Most of the climbing is done roped together and requires the use of crampons, harness, ice axe and climbing ropes. However, Chulu East is marked as a less technical peak compared to other trekking peaks in Nepal. The real climbing adventure begins after Ngawal (3,660m) with a steep climb to Chulu East Base Camp (3,800m).

After acclimatization and training on climbing gear, climbers ascend to Chulu East High Camp (5,330m) in about 3-4 hours. The final summit push from High Camp is a steep climb on snow and ice following the east-north ridge.

While Chulu East is considered easier than other peaks, it still demands good physical fitness and some prior mountaineering experience. The summit success rate is around 95%. Proper acclimatization and use of climbing equipment is essential for a safe and successful climb.

Perfect Seasons from Climbing Chulu East

The best time of year to climb Chulu East Peak is during the spring season from March to May and the autumn season from September to November. These periods offer favorable weather conditions with clear skies, mild temperatures, and reduced risks associated with high altitudes.

During spring and autumn, climbers can expect stable weather, longer daylight hours, and lower chances of high-altitude storms. The temperatures during the day are comfortable, ranging around 15 degrees Celsius, while nights can be cooler at around 7-8 degrees Celsius. As climbers ascend to higher altitudes, the temperature drops further, requiring warm clothing for the summit push.

On the other hand, the monsoon season from July to August and winter season from December to February are not recommended for climbing Chulu East Peak. These seasons bring harsh weather conditions with heavy snowfall, rain, and extreme cold, making climbing difficult and dangerous due to avalanches, landslides, and slippery trails.

Thus to maximize safety and enjoyment during the climb, it is advisable to plan your expedition to Chulu East Peak during the spring or autumn seasons when the weather is most favorable for trekking and climbing in the Annapurna region of Nepal.

We then explore Ngawal, visiting the local monastery and interacting with the villagers to learn about their culture and lifestyle. If you're up for it, a short hike to a nearby viewpoint for sunset views over the Annapurna range can be a rewarding experience. As the evening sets in, we return to your lodge for relaxation and dinner, sharing your experiences with fellow trekkers and preparing for the next day.

Finally, we settle in for a good night's sleep, ready for the next leg of your journey.

Being respectful of local customs and traditions enhances the overall experience, making the trek from Pisang to Ngawal a memorable adventure.

A rest day in Ngawal, set at an elevation of 3,660 meters, is perfect for acclimatization and exploration. This high-altitude village offers a serene environment to relax and recover from the rigors of trekking. We can spend the day leisurely walking around the village, visiting the local monastery, and interacting with the friendly villagers to gain insight into their traditional lifestyle.

For those feeling energetic, a short acclimatization hike to a nearby viewpoint provides stunning panoramic views of the Annapurna range and the surrounding valleys. This hike not only aids in acclimatization but also offers a chance to appreciate the natural beauty and tranquility of the area.

The trek from Ngawal to Yak Kharka is a notable segment of the Annapurna Circuit, characterized by a gradual ascent and breathtaking Himalayan vistas. Starting your day in Ngawal, at an elevation of approximately 3,660 meters, we begin with a nutritious breakfast at your teahouse or lodge.

Local options typically include porridge, eggs, Tibetan bread, and tea, providing the energy needed for the day's journey. The trek commences with a northwest route, initially descending slightly before beginning a gradual ascent. The trail offers picturesque landscapes with terraced fields and a stunning backdrop of towering peaks.

Mid-morning, we pass through the small village of Julu and continue towards Braga, enjoying beautiful views of the Annapurna range and glimpses of traditional village life along the way. Short breaks for hydration and rest are essential, especially as the trail becomes steeper. After a few hours of trekking, we reach Manang, a larger village at an elevation of approximately 3,540 meters. Manang provides an opportunity for a longer break, where we can enjoy a snack or tea and visit the Himalayan Rescue Association Clinic for information on altitude sickness if needed.

Leaving Manang, the trail continues its gradual ascent through alpine landscapes. The air becomes thinner, and we may spot yaks grazing in the pastures, enhancing the high-altitude trekking experience. The path offers stunning views of the Annapurna range, Gangapurna, and other peaks.

By early afternoon, we arrive in Yak Kharka, situated at an elevation of approximately 4,000 meters. After checking into a teahouse or lodge, we can have lunch featuring local dishes like dal bhat, momo, or thukpa, followed by some much-needed rest to acclimatize to the higher altitude.

Later in the afternoon, a short acclimatization walk around Yak Kharka helps your body adjust to the altitude and prepares we for the higher elevations ahead. The rugged, high-altitude landscape offers a chance to spot wildlife such as blue sheep. As evening sets in, we return to your lodge for a relaxing evening, enjoying a warm dinner and sharing stories with fellow trekkers. Preparation for the next day's trek includes organizing your gear and ensuring we have enough water and snacks.

Finally, a good night's sleep is essential to recover from the day's trek and to prepare for the next leg of your journey. Staying warm and comfortable is crucial, as temperatures can drop significantly at night. Throughout the trek, pacing yourself and taking breaks are vital to avoid altitude sickness.

Dressing in layers to adapt to changing weather conditions and carrying essential items like a first aid kit, sunscreen, sunglasses, and trekking poles will enhance your trekking experience.

As we leave Yak Kharka, the trail initially ascends gradually through alpine pastures where yaks graze, transitioning into a more rugged and rocky landscape. The path then becomes steeper and more challenging, requiring careful footing and a steady pace to manage the increasing altitude and rough terrain.

Midway through the trek, we pass through the small settlement of Julu, where we can take a short break to hydrate and appreciate the breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks. The air grows thinner as we continue to ascend, and the trail becomes more demanding, winding through rocky outcrops and glacial moraines. As we approach Chulu East Base Camp, located at an elevation of approximately 5,300 meters, the environment becomes stark and high-altitude, with expansive views of Chulu East and the towering Himalayan giants around you.

Upon reaching Chulu East Base Camp, we set up your camp or settle into the designated camping area, depending on your trekking arrangements. The base camp offers a stunning backdrop of snow-capped peaks and glacial landscapes, making the arduous trek worthwhile. After setting up camp, it is crucial to rest and acclimatize to the high altitude.

Hydrating well and taking short acclimatization walks around the camp area help your body adjust to the thin air. The evening is spent in the serene and remote environment of the base camp, where we can enjoy a hearty meal, share stories with fellow trekkers, and prepare for potential summit attempts or further exploration in the days ahead. This segment of the trek not only provides a challenging and rewarding high-altitude adventure but also presents some of the most magnificent views in the Annapurna region, creating unforgettable memories.

The trek from Chulu East Base Camp to Chulu East High Camp is a crucial and demanding segment, offering a dramatic change in altitude and environment, and requiring both physical endurance and mental fortitude. Starting from Chulu East Base Camp, at an elevation of approximately 5,300 meters, we begin your day with a nutritious breakfast, essential for the strenuous ascent ahead. The route to High Camp is shorter in distance but steep and challenging, with the trail becoming progressively more rugged and less defined. As we leave the base camp, we traverse through glacial moraines and rocky terrain, requiring careful navigation and steady pacing to manage the increasing altitude.

The trek involves climbing over loose scree and navigating narrow paths along the mountain's edge, demanding concentration and stamina. Midway through, we might encounter sections that require scrambling over rocks, adding to the technical aspect of the climb.

The thinning air makes breathing more difficult, and it's important to take regular breaks to hydrate and acclimatize. As we approach Chulu East High Camp, located at an elevation of approximately 5,800 meters, the landscape transforms into a stark, high-altitude environment with sweeping views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks.

Upon arrival at High Camp, we set up your tent or settle into a pre-established campsite, depending on your arrangements. The camp provides a breathtaking vantage point with panoramic views of the Annapurna range and other towering peaks. After setting up, it's crucial to rest and continue acclimatizing to the higher altitude.

Hydrate well and take short walks around the camp to aid acclimatization. The evening at High Camp is spent in preparation for the potential summit attempt of Chulu East. We share a hearty meal with your team, review the plan for the summit day, and ensure all your gear is ready for the early morning start. The experience at High Camp is both challenging and rewarding, offering a sense of achievement and anticipation as we prepare for the final push to the summit.

The trek from Chulu East High Camp to Camp I is a rigorous and technical climb that requires careful planning and preparation. Beginning early in the morning at Chulu East High Camp, situated at approximately 5,800 meters, we start with a hearty breakfast to fuel your body for the challenging ascent ahead. The route to Camp I involves navigating steep and often icy terrain, requiring the use of crampons, ropes, and other climbing gear. The trail offers breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks and glaciers, but the thin air and cold temperatures present significant challenges.

As we progress towards Camp I, which sits at an elevation of around 6,000 meters, you'll encounter sections that demand technical climbing skills, including scrambling over rocks and negotiating narrow paths along the mountain's edge. Safety is paramount, with regular rest breaks to hydrate, monitor altitude sickness symptoms, and ensure everyone in your team is coping well with the altitude.

Upon reaching Camp I, setting up camp and acclimatizing to the higher altitude become top priorities. Short walks around the campsite help with acclimatization, but caution is necessary to avoid overexertion. The evening is spent preparing for the next day's activities, including a thorough gear check, briefing with your guide, and a nutritious dinner to replenish energy stores. This segment of the climb is physically demanding yet rewarding, providing a glimpse of the challenges and exhilaration of high-altitude mountaineering.

On the day of the summit climb, we begin preparations very early, typically around midnight or in the early hours of the morning. After a light breakfast, we gather your essential climbing gear, including warm clothing, headlamps, crampons, ice axes, and harnesses.

The climb starts from Camp I, where we have already acclimatized, ensuring we are physically and mentally prepared for the challenging ascent. The initial part of the climb involves navigating steep and icy slopes, often using ropes for safety as we make your way towards the summit of Chulu East. The thin air and extreme cold at this altitude make the climb physically demanding, requiring a steady pace and frequent breaks to manage altitude-related challenges and fatigue.

As we continue ascending towards the summit, we encounter various obstacles such as crevasses, snowfields, and rocky sections. Traversing ridges and negotiating challenging terrain becomes part of the climb, with the final push to the summit being the most demanding. Reaching the summit of Chulu East is a remarkable achievement, offering sweeping panoramic views of the surrounding Himalayan peaks and valleys. After celebrating your summit success and capturing the breathtaking scenery, it's important to spend limited time at the summit to avoid altitude-related risks.

The descent from the summit back to Camp I requires careful navigation and concentration. We retrace your steps, descending through the challenging terrain while your body adjusts to lower altitudes and the air becomes thicker. This descent is equally demanding as the ascent, necessitating caution and focus to navigate safely.

Upon reaching Camp I, we can rest, hydrate, have a nutritious meal, and reflect on the incredible experience of summiting Chulu East Peak. The summit climb and descent back to Camp I represent a significant accomplishment in high-altitude mountaineering, highlighting the importance of preparation, safety, and perseverance in achieving such feats.

A contingency day is separated in case we cannot summit the day before. If so, we summit today. Other we get rest around High Camp or descend to Manang.

After the exhilarating summit of Chulu East Peak and a well-deserved rest at High Camp, the descent back to civilization begins with a trek from High Camp to Manang or Humde. This leg of the journey typically spans around 7 to 8 hours, depending on the pace and trail conditions.
Early in the morning, we start the descent from High Camp, located at an elevation of approximately 5,800 meters. The initial part of the trek involves retracing our steps through the challenging terrain you conquered during the ascent.
As you descend, we will navigate through rocky paths, snowfields, and crevasses, utilizing your climbing skills and equipment as needed. The descent from high altitudes requires careful footing and concentration, especially as we transition from icy sections to rocky slopes.
Midway through the descent, we will reach Camp I, a significant milestone marking the completion of the climbing portion of the expedition. From Camp I, the trail becomes less steep as we continue descending towards lower altitudes.
The scenery changes as we pass through alpine meadows, juniper forests, and traditional villages, offering a contrast to the rugged high-altitude landscapes. Along the way, we may encounter yak herders, local villagers, and fellow trekkers, adding to the cultural experience of the trek.
As we approach Manang or Humde, located at an elevation of around 3,540 meters, the terrain becomes more hospitable, with wider paths and occasional settlements. Upon reaching our destination, we settle into a teahouse or lodge, enjoying a well-deserved rest after the challenging descent.
Take time to relax, reflect on the expedition, and savor local cuisine while reminiscing about the incredible journey to Chulu East Peak. This trek from High Camp to Manang or Humde encapsulates the transition from high-altitude mountaineering to the more familiar comforts of lower elevations, offering a fulfilling conclusion to the adventure.

Starting from Manang, situated at an elevation of approximately 3,540 meters, we depart in the early morning to make the most of daylight hours. The initial part of the drive takes us through picturesque mountainous terrain, passing through charming villages like Chame and Pisang, known for their traditional architecture and vibrant culture. As we descend from higher altitudes, we'll witness dramatic changes in vegetation, from alpine forests to subtropical forests teeming with rhododendrons, pine trees, and lush greenery.

Arriving at Besisahar, a bustling town and a gateway to the Annapurna Circuit, we take a break for lunch and refreshments. Besisahar also serves as a transition point where you switch from off-road terrain to more well-maintained highways as we continue towards Kathmandu. Along the way, you pass through scenic valleys, cross rivers, and enjoy panoramic views of terraced fields and rural settlements.

As the journey progresses, we drive through towns like Dumre and Mugling, located at lower elevations, where the subtropical climate becomes more evident with warmer temperatures. Crossing the Trishuli River, we enter the Prithvi Highway, a major arterial route connecting Kathmandu to the rest of Nepal. The highway offers smoother roads and easier driving conditions compared to the mountainous stretches earlier in the journey.

Finally, we arrive in Kathmandu, Nepal's vibrant capital city, known for its rich history, ancient temples, and bustling markets.
