  • Most popular trekking peak to climb in Annapurna Himalaya range.
  • Great view of Annapurna, Manaslu ranges from the summit.
Chulu West peak is situated in a small valley and lay north of Manang, away from the key track to the Thorung La. In fact, there are two Chulu Peaks- East and West. Among them, Chulu West (6419m.) is more elevated one. The Chulu West Peak bestows an exciting peak mountaineering option for those trekkers who would love to go to experience adventure in the Annapurna Region. While mountaineering the peak, we will be rewarded by splendid views of peaks like Dhaulagiri, Annapurna, Nilgiri and other massive peaks. Also, climbing the Chulu West Peak requires a good physical condition and a high level of energy. Chulu West peak is one of the parts of the Manang Himal, which is quite specifically included in the bigger Damodar Himal. In the north-to-south way we can observe the pouring of rivers- Nar Khola , Hunlung Khola and Phu Khola. To the south the track is bordered by the Marsyangdi Khola and the Mesokanta La.

Chulu west peak tour begins from Beshi Sahar after driving for 5-6 hours from Kathmandu and from Beshi Sahar the way goes up slowly to Manang valley, one of the highest valleys in the world located at an elevation of 5000m. And, from Manang valley the path moves north to the Chulu West Base camp. The major highlights of the trek are passing through the Marsyangdi valley which will mesmerize you with the views of Manaslu, Gangapurna, Annapurna II, III, IV and Tilicho peak; exploring Gyaru and Pisang village and visiting Muktinath temple. Go for climbing the Chulu West Peak (6419m.) taking support from Unique Adventure and make the daydream of peak climbing experience at the regions of Annapurna come true. Spring and autumn are perfect seasons to go for climbing Chulu West Peak.
