Trip Introduction;
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 as the most easiest but straight forward climbing peak. The peak was first ascended by a German Expedition team in 1955. Chulu Far East Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks is a perfect opportunity for climbers seeking to achieve a relatively moderate peak climbing adventure that also includes an excursion of Tilicho Lake – the highest lake in the world situated at an altitude of 4,920 meters and the crossing of the challenging Mesokanta La Pass at 5,120 meters from where we will have amazing views of Mustang and the Tibetan Plateau.

Chulu Far East Peak Climbing with Nepal Guide Treks starts at Kathmandu. After spending a full day sightseeing around Kathmandu, we will take a drive from Kathmandu towards Chame which is 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 longest prayer wheels and hanging prayer flags and head towards Junu Khola. After spending a day acclimatization at Junu Khola, we continue our trek on a steeply climbing trail to Chulu Far East Base Camp with crossing of some risky rocks. Nevertheless, our adventurous trek is rewarded with splendid views of Annapurna mountain ranges. We will spend additional day for acclimatization at Chulu Far East Base Camp with climbing training, preparation and short hike up to surrounding glaciers. After base camp, we walk through snow slopes to reach at high camp 5500m.

Fully equipped and properly acclimatized we start early and head towards the peak summit. Following the guidance of our experienced climbing experts, we cross through gradual but steep snow ridges and rocks 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. After spending short and quality time at the summit, we descend back to Base Camp. Then our journey leads towards exploration of Tilicho Lake – crystal clear glacier lake. From there, we trek towards the crossing of challenging Mesokanta La Pass 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 with Nepal Guide Treks ends with a scenic flight from Jomsom to Pokhara and then a drive from there back to Kathmandu.

Great Adventure at  ' Chulu Far East Peak ' successful climb !!  

Previously we have done a few treks with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions. This time we booked our trip from trekking to peak climbing. We are well known with the excellent service that we have received from Nepal Guide Treks in our previous trekking. Likewise, this time as well the performance of the team have exceeded our expectations.

Our climbing guide was Ang-Dawa Sherpa, very energetic and intelligent person. His guidance lead us to the summit of Chulu Far East Peak. Frankly speaking Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition has a long and good experience related to trekking and mountaineering.

Thanks to everyone in the team for outstanding hardwork and patience !!

We couldn’t have had made it to the summit, if we were on our own. We will come back for more trekking and peak climbing together with Nepal Guide Treks and Expeditions !!

Until next time, see you soon !!

Chulu Far East Peak - Truly adventurous climbing experience !!! Thanks  NGT !!

We booked our climbing of Chulu Far East Peak with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition via Internet. The hospitality of the NGT team was truly inspiring. From the moment we landed on Kathmandu we were taken very good care of. During our climbing period – all our Sherpa team were co-operative and helpful. Our guide was Ang-Dawa Sherpa, we will definitely like to do more climbing with him. Overall, we had a great time and learned a lot about technical climbing.

Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition !! Highly Recommended !!

Chulu Far East Peak Climbing successful :) :) :) 

We had Trekked Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Upper Mustang and Manaslu Circuit in Nepal before we summit Chulu Far East Peak. Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition has experience trekking and mountaineering leaders. We never choose other trekking agent in Nepal since we impressed by their service from our previous trips.

It was quite difficult and adventurous to summit Chulu Far East because we did not have previous climbing experience. The successful summit credit goes to our climbing guide Dawa Sherpa. He trained and instructed us very perfectly before our summit. He paid high level of concentration to guarantee our safety and security. Thanks Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition Team!!!!!!!!!
