Chulu West Peak Climbing/Expedition

Nepal

About the trip

Altitude: 6419m    
Best Season: Autumn/Spring

The Annapurna region offers some interesting 6000+m peak climbing opportunities for adventurous people. One of the most popular and beautiful being Chulu West Peak (6419m/19055ft). While climbing the peak, we will also be able to enjoy magnificent views of Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Mt Manasolu, as well as all of the Annapurna range. This is an entry level mountaineering trip however climbing the Chulu West Peak requires good physical conditioning and a high degree of stamina.

The itinerary starts from low altitude and ascends slowly to high altitude allowing for a very good chance to acclimatize. At the beginning of the trek you will walk through the typical Gurung villages and past beautiful rice terraces. Following the Marsangdi River we will cross both wooden and suspicion bridges whilst regularly being treated to the cooling spray of cascading waterfalls. The lower part of this region is inhabited by Gurung, Magar and Brahman people whilst the upper part is inhabited by Tibetan Buddhist people. You will have the opportunity to experience both the Hindus and Buddhist welcoming cultures and the amazing people that come with them.

As with all of our itinerary's we can be flexible and tweak according to your time, wants and needs.

Option 1: after the peak summit trek via Thorong-La pass and trek end at Pokhara.
