If you are thriving for a short alpine trip that requires less technical skills, we would like to welcome you to the Chulu East Peak Climbing adventure. The Chulu East is one of the popular trekking trails in the Annapurna region besides the world-famous Annapurna Circuit, Annapurna Base Camp, or Manaslu circuit.

Chulu East Peak (6,584 meters) climb offers an iconic sight of the bold Mt. Annapurna (8,091m), Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167 m), and the snow-capped panorama of the Annapurna Range. This journey will take you through the diverse cultures and ethnicity of Nepal. Besides the unique demography, you will also get to experience varied ecosystems and ever-changing landscapes.

Although Chulu East is marked as a less technical peak, it can be particularly difficult for the new climbers. Hence, we recommend you get a hold on to your climbing gear such as climbing ropes, ice axes, crampons, and tying knots.

The climbing expedition to the Chulu East Peak starts at Besi Sahar. You will follow the most common trekking route that leads to many other destinations in the famous Annapurna circuit. The trail follows the Marsyangdi River valley and passes through a variety of landscapes and unique Gurung cultures. Moving along the rhododendron and pine forests, you will reach the upper valley.

Continuing up to Pisang, you will part your way off the Annapurna circuit, pass through an uninhabited region, and finally to Yak Kharka. After a few days of acclimatization, the path will continue to the Chulu East Base Camp. Another day of the climb, and you will find yourself at the height of 6,584 meters, enjoying the serene beauty of the Himalayas.

After a successful climb, the trail descends to Thorong La Pass at 5416 meters. Follow down to the spectacular pilgrimage site – Muktinath. Finally, trekking to Kagbeni and then to Jomsom, you catch a flight Pokhara.

The Best Season for Chulu East Peak Climbing is during spring (March to May), Autumn (September to November). During these periods, the weather remains clear, and the possible threats of high altitudes are reduced. Moreover, the days are longer, so that you get ample time to complete the climb of the day.

What is the best time to climb Chulu East Peak?

The weather on the mountain is unpredictable. But considering the weather and appropriate temperature, the best time for Chulu East Peak Climbing is during Spring (March to May) and Autumn (September to November). You will get the best view of the mountain ranges, and the sky remains clear most of the time during these two seasons.

Am I likely to get altitude sickness on this climb?

Chulu East Peak stands tall at the height of 6,584 meters. Hence, there are possibilities of getting altitude sickness on the climb. The air gets thinner as you continue your way upwards. However, we have designed the itinerary in such a way that you will get enough time to acclimatize to the changing air pressure. Our guides have adequate training and experience in handling such situations. Moreover, our guides will carry oxygen cylinders, breathing masks, and first aid kits in case of emergencies. You are in safe hands with Nepal Social Treks.

Who will be my guide?

We provide you local guides on your climb. All the guides are experienced, flexible, and authorized by the Government of Nepal.

Our guides for this climb are certified and have summited the same peak more than 5 times. You can rest assured that they know the trail very well.

What kind of insurance do I need for this expedition?

We recommend you get full insurance that includes travel, medical, and emergency evacuation to avoid unnecessary expenses in case of any unfortunate incident. If you don’t have any idea, we can guide you through the proper steps.

Are the guides insured?

Yes. At Nepal Social Treks & Expedition, we ensure all our guides and members.

Will we be using tents on the climb?

The trail passes through some of the remote areas. There are not many hotels and lodges up there. Thus, we will pack tents and mattresses for well-organized rest.

What are the safety measures for Chulu East Climbing?

When traveling to a mountainous region, the weather is unpredictable. There is a risk of natural disasters as well, the common one being the avalanche. Moreover, being at high altitudes may induce altitude sickness among travelers. At Nepal Social Treks, we have a tactical plan and schedule for Chulu East Peak climb. However, we are very much flexible with the itinerary we have developed to suit your needs and preferences.

We prioritize your health and well-being as our main concern. Our guides are experts with long experience in mountaineering. They have excellent leadership quality with sound knowledge of preventing and treating altitude sickness. In case of emergency, we can arrange emergency evacuation as well.

While we strictly follow the agreed-upon package, given the weather and health conditions, we can lengthen the schedule if needed.

What kinds of climbing equipment should I carry for this expedition?

For a successful and safe climb, you need to pack a pair of climbing boots, down jacket, down pants, thermal wear, windproof jacket, waterproof pants, balaclava, sun cap, gloves, sleeping bag, climbing helmet, poles, and a first-aid kit including your personal medications if any. You can also add some extras such as a walking stick, pocket knife, and raincoat for extra safety.

How fit should I have to be to go on the Chulu East Peak Climbing?

Chulu East Peak is a less technical climb. However, it demands a good level of fitness in some parts of the trail. It is recommended that you have prior experience of trekking. This climb includes 5 to 7 hours of walk each day on a rugged and undulating trail. The trail keeps on elevating each day. You need to be in a good physical and mental state to overcome the challenges of the mountain.

You don’t need to worry. We will guide you thoroughly on the types of physical exercises and techniques you need to learn.

What about drinking water during the expedition?

We are cautious about your health. We don’t want our customers to suffer from any water-related diseases at such an altitude. That is why we provide only safe water throughout the climbing adventure. However, you need to purchase bottled water. You can get them from the hotels and lodges where you will stay. Moreover, it would be best if you can manage the water purifier with you. You can buy tablets that help in the purification of water.

How much money do I need per day during the climb?

We charge according to the package and number of days you agree upon. Our standard package is $ 2550 per person for 19 days. The cost excludes any personal cost that you might incur. You may expect an expense of $7 to 10 per meal in Kathmandu. Likewise, on the trek, $9 to $12 per day will be enough for basic personal expenses such as drinks and chocolates.
