Great Chulu West SOLO Expedition ! Reviewed Tour: Chulu West Peak Climb

“I used Unique Adventure for a solo climb expedition of Chulu West in the Annapurna Region (6419m Peak)

Khum and Krishna at the office did a great job in setting everything up and communication during the expedition was easy, fast and efficient.

The logistics were taken care of without any major hiccups.

This expedition is quite an undertaking with setting up both a base camp on around 5000m and a High Camp around 5600m, but everything went smoothly.

The absolut highlight were the guides:

- the general guide Bishnu who knows the Annapurna Area inside out
- the climbing guide LakCha who is extremely competent and knowledgeable about all aspects of high altitude climbing

I can’t praise the guides enough and would urge you to request them specifically for any high altitude climbs !

We had a great successful summit day with amazing weather and reached the summit in record time just for sunrise !

I give Unique Adventure and Bishnu and LakCha my highest recommendation !”

The summit of Chulu West will provide you with magnificent views of Himalayan giants such as Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, and Annapurna I. First climbed in 1952 by a Japanese expedition Chulu West is usually climbed as a nice addition to trekking the Annapurna circuit. For most of the trip,you’ll stay in guesthouses or lodges. However, during the actual ascent, you will need to set up camping tents.

Climbing the Chulu West is fairly challenging, and requires a lot of fitness and stamina. After the initial drive to Khudi from Kathmandu, you begin your trek through the Manang valley, one of the highest valleys in the world. The trek to the base camp features majestic landscapes and uniquely mixed cultures. Once you reach Chulu Base Camp you will first spend some time getting acclimatized, and then start climbing. The ascent to the summit takes 3 days. You return via the Thorong-La Pass through Muktinath and finally reach Jomsom.

The Chulu West Peak is usually climbed in spring (Mid March to May) or autumn (mid September to November). At least some mountaineering experience is necessary for this peak, which means if you’re just starting your mountaineering adventures, you should consider easier peaks such as Yala Peak or Island Peak before attempting Chulu West.

This peak is an excellent climb for experienced mountaineers and adventurous amateurs, who have previous experience with ice axes, crampons, and ropes.
