HIGHLIGHTS
  • Summit the Adventurous Chulu Far East Peak at 6059m, located in the Annapurna Region
  • Explore the great ice lake – Tilicho Lake 4920m/16137ft
  • Crossing the adventurous Mesokanta La Pass at 5120m/16793ft
  • Breathtaking views of Mt. Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Mt. Gangapurna etc.
Chulu Far East is an attractive peak that rises north of Marsyangdi Khola in the Manang Region of Nepal. The peak forms a part of the Manang Himalayan range and offers magnificent views of Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Dhaulagiri, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Glacier Dome, Chulu West, Pisang Peak and other snow capped peaks bordering to Tibet.

Among the three Chulus, Chulu Far East Peak is considered the easiest. The peak was first ascended by a German Expedition team in 1955. Climbing the Chulu Far East Peak is a perfect opportunity for climbers seeking to achieve a relatively moderate peak climbing adventure, but who also wishes to explore the Annapurna region and Tilicho Lake – one of the highest lakes in the world, situated at an altitude of 4,920 meters. Another highlight of this tour is the day of crossing the challenging Mesokanta La Pass at 5,120 meters from where we will have amazing views of Mustang and the Tibetan Plateau.

After spending a couple of days in Kathmandu, we will head to Chame, the starting point of the trek. From Chame we start our trek through narrow ascending trails surrounded by dense forests until arriving at Pisang. We continue our trek to Humde Village where we will see large prayer wheels, until finally reaching Junu Khola. After acclimatizing a day at Junu Khola, we continue our trek on a steep climbing trail to Chulu Far East Base Camp, where we are rewarded with some splendid views of the Annapurna mountain range. We will spend an additional day acclimatizing at Chulu Far East Base Camp with climbing training, preparation and a short hike up to some of the surrounding glaciers. After staying in Base Camp for 2 nights we will make our way to through snow slopes to High Camp at 5500m, where we will stay for one night. The rest of the day will be spent on preparing for the following day's summit attempt.

Fully equipped and properly acclimatized we start early and head towards Chulu Far East peak summit. Following the guidance of our experienced climbing experts, we cross through gradual but steep snow ridges and rocky parts, before finally heading towards the summit of Chulu Far East Peak. Once at the top we are rewarded with magnificent views of Annapurna I, II, III, IV, Dhaulagiri, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Pisang Peak, Chulu West and several snowcapped peaks bordering Tibet.

We will be spending only a short but high quality time at the summit, after which we will make our way back down to Base Camp. Our journey then takes us towards Tilicho Lake – a crystal clear glacier lake. From there, we trek towards the crossing of the challenging Mesokanta La Pass at 5120m and continue a rather easy downhill trekking passing through Yak Kharka, Muktinath and finally arriving at Jomsom.

Our memorable and adventurous Chulu Far East Peak Climbing adventure ends with a scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and then a drive from there back to Kathmandu. If you wish to spend a few days in Pokhara before going back to Kathmandu, that's also possible. We will still cover the transport back to Kathmandu from Pokhara.

“We had amazing 20 days trip with Nepal Guide. In this trip, we were going to climb Chulu Far East Peak with our guide Sonam Sherpa. Sonam Sherpa was always smiling and helps us during trekking and climbing.
Our trip starts from Kathmandu to Chame. We trek around daily 5 hours to reach the base camp of chulu far east. During base camp, we cross several technical sections of chulu with help of our guide. Next day, We climb the Chulu far east peak that was awesome views of Annapurna region mountains. We descend back to base camp and trek to Tilicho Lake and crossing the Mesokanta La Pass 5,120 meters, that was quite difficult to cross but views were great from that point of Mustang. Overall Our trip is quite good and high level of adventure. NepalGuide provided service is good and arranging is also good.”

“I heard about Nepal many times in Switzerland and also known as "Asia's Switzerland". So, I want to travel Nepal for peak climbing Purpose.Prakash (Managing Director) was extremely helpful and prompt to all my email queries when we organised this trip.
Nepal guide Treks successfully arranged for me only for Chulu Far East 6059m in October 2017. I already climb Dufourspitze which is the highest mountain in Switzerland.So, I had experience in peak climbing. In October, we trekked to pisang and towards the Chulu Far East Peak. We successfully climb Chulu far east Peak with the help of Our Guide Ang Dendi Sherpa and porters. View from Chulu, that image was beyond your imagination. When we back from Chulu, we can see world's highest altitude lake "Tilicho lake" that was an awesome experience I ever had. We celebrate party in Pokhara to successful climb Chulu Far East Peak.”
