Chulu East Peak climbing is an exhilarating mountaineering expedition nestled in the stunning Annapurna region of Nepal. Towering at an impressive elevation of 6,584 meters (21,601 feet), it presents a thrilling challenge for experienced climbers seeking to summit a Himalayan peak. The climb demands technical proficiency in mountaineering skills such as rope handling, ice axe techniques, and glacier travel. Prior climbing experience and knowledge of high-altitude environments are crucial for tackling the steep slopes, icy sections, and glacier crossings encountered along the route. Proper acclimatization is vital to mitigate the risks of altitude-related ailments. The reward for those who undertake the adventure is an awe-inspiring view of the surrounding peaks, including Annapurna II, III, IV, Manaslu, Dhaulagiri, and other majestic summits. The journey to Chulu East Peak promises a true test of skill, strength, and determination amidst the pristine beauty of the Himalayas.
Chulu East at 6,584 metres, is a part of the Chulu mountain range. There are three mountains in this range, Chulu East, Chulu West at 6,429 metres, and Chulu Far East at 6,029 metres. Located to the North of the Annapurna range, Chulu Peak climbing has all thrills, stunning mountains, and a serene landscape.
Even with a technical climb of Chulu East Peak, trekkers admire this peak. The highly hiked arduous trek route to Pisang, Yak Kharka, Chulu East Base Camp, and the summit climb is ideal for intermediate climbers.
From North East Ridge, the first successful attempt was in 1955 by German expedition groups. They climbed to the summit of Chulu Far East Peak. Later in 1979, John Noble and Dick Isherwood summited Chulu East from Northeast Ridge.
The setting of the landscape around Chulu East peak is ideal for climbing. On the north of Marshyangdi River streaming down from Manang, Chulu East peak rises tall from Yak Kharka. The Manang Peak and Damodar Peak further make the setting utterly joyous. North of the Annapurna, it lies in the rain shadow area. This place receives low rain in a year. Thus, the conditions become ideal for Chulu East Peak Climbing in Summer. The strong wind here makes the stream of Glacial moraines into pillar-shaped structures.
To commence our 21 days long Chulu East Peak climbing and expedition, we'll head to Besisahar on a private jeep. The trek from here takes you to the pristine landscape of Annapurna Circuit. The wildlife and plants en route to the trail make the daytime hike joyous. Further, spotting some Himalayan animals would be a great moment. Around one week after hiking the Chulu East Peak Climbing expedition, we'll reach Kangla , from where we'll head to Chulu East Base Camp. Kangla Phedi, at 4,600 metres, is the best location for observing the sunrise. It gives a heavenly touch to the soul. Himlung Himal, Phu River, Nar Phu valley at 4,080 metres, Annapurna range on the horizon, it becomes the best hike in life.
We'll have a reserve day for AMS, tiredness, or bad weather. Our overnight stay will be in the tents at Chulu East Peak base camp.
From Chulu East Base Camp, we'll continue our return to Manang village. The rocky terrain now changes to a little vegetation. Barren landscapes of Yak Kharka and Kangla Phedi will be behind us as we continue hiking to Manang village. We'll hike to Tilicho Base Camp and successfully to Tilicho Lake. From Tilicho, we'll head to Dharamshala, Jomsom, Pokhara, and finally to Kathmandu. It marks our successful Chulu East Peak Climbing.
From the beginning of the Chulu East climb, climbers follow the Northeast Ridge to summit the peak. First, we'll make our way to Chulu East High Camp at 5,400 metres, which sits below Chulu Far East Peak at 6,059 meters. 3.7 km North of Chulu East base camp, the high centre of this peak sits at 22 degrees slope. The high centre or C1 rises to 900 metres tall. Here, we'll stay for a day acclimatising. If anyone from the group feels like staying for another day acclimatising, we'll arrange the summit accordingly.
The summit of Chulu East Peak is around 5 km from the high camp. To reach the Chulu East summit, you'll require climbing skills like crossing the avalanches and navigation on snow to reach the summit and back to base camp. The 450 metres below the summit ridge is a 45-degree steep climb. But, on average, the steepness of a 2km climb is around 30 degrees. The total distance you'll cover on the summit day is 12 km. Thus, technical expertise and endurance are a must for this expedition. The previous climbing experience becomes sharper as you apply them on this semi-technical peak. From Chulu East High Camp, we'll hike to the elevation of 1,400 metres and descend to the Base Camp by 2,300 metres down.
