Chulu Peak East (6,584 meters/21,601 feet) is located just north of the Annapurna Massif.  With a stunning setting, technical aspects, spectacular 900 meter climbing route and short access to the peak, Chulu is a climbing objective second to none-in Nepal.  Chulu East is part of the Chulurange, which consists of Chulu West 6,429 meters,  Chulu Far East 6,029 m and Chulu West 6,584 m.  Chulu East provides breathtaking views of Annapurna (I II, III and IV) Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Mt. Manaslu.

The Chulu Peak East standard climbing route is via the Northeast ridge. We will attempt the summit from high camp (5,400 m) located just below Chulu Far East(6, 059 m). High camp or (C1) is located 3.7 km North of base camp>  The average slope between BC-C1 is 22° with an elevation gain of 900 m. We take one day for acclimatization at C1, but if the client needs more time we adjust the schedule accordingly. The summit route is 4.5 km long from high camp. It requires advanced glacier travel skills and navigation to successfully reach the bottom of the summit ridge. The steepest part of the entire climb is at the bottom of the summit ridge, where you encounter a slope of 45° for 450 m.Once on the ridge the average slope is below 30° and the overall distance measures 2 km, along the ridge.  Summit day will be very long and strenuous, as you have to climb from high camp to the summit and return to the Base Camp in one day. This is a total distance of 12 km, total elevation gain of 1,400 m and elevation loss of 2,300 m.
