Chulu East Peak Climbing

Chulu East Peak

Chulu East peaks are part of the Manang Himal, which are quite rightly included in the larger Damodar Himal, the eastern limit of which runs south from Chako and Peak 6687 in a north-to-south direction along the Hunlung Khola, Nar Khola and Phu Khola. The south it is bounded by the Marsyangdi River and the Mesokanta La. To the west its limit is the Kali Gandaki and to the north the Parchekya La (5,447m). The north east of the Annapurna Range is an ideal objective for those extending their climbing experience beyond the trekking peaks of the Everest region. It is also well suited for an expeditionary style ascent with group members playing an active role in establishing the intermediary camps while preparing for the summit. Appreciating the delights of our approach trek in the Annapurna region we gradually ascend to the Manang Valley.
    
There exists considerable confusion with regard to the name and location of the Chulu peaks and what summit actually constitutes Chulu West and Chulu East, since it is soon becomes apparent to anyone that has climbed in the range that several other summits close by, which are actually part of the Chulu massif, are not indicated on present maps of the area. For the sake of clarification, four summits can be included in the Chulu group, two of which are possible on the permit for Chulu West and two on the Chulu East permit. What is apparent is that the available trekking map is highly misleading.
