Overview of Chulu West Peak Climbing

Chulu West Peak is a challenging trekking peak that lies north of the Annapurna Mountains above the Manang Valley as the highest of the Chulu Mountains. The Japanese expedition wrote the first consent story in 1952. The controversy over the name and location of the Chulu Summit is becoming more common as several peaks are part of the Chulu Massif, but these are not always shown on maps. Therefore, it isn’t easy to choose between the two summits of East Chulu and Chulu West, as the group consists of four peaks, two in the west and two in the east. To create more confusion, Chulu West can also be called Chulu Central. 

Chulu West peak climbing fulfills the dream of every amateur climber who wants to enjoy the exciting experience of their life on the top of the Himalayas with its magnificent view of the Himalayas and Tibet right next to you on the way to the classic route drive from Annapurna. It is one of the challenging trekking peaks in Nepal that requires more commitment and previous climbing experience. Our experienced climbing guide will teach you about the techniques and use of crampons, ice axes, ropes, etc. to give you the skills and confidence you need to have every chance of climbing the summit. 

 Generally, it was clear that permission to scale the east or west summit could also be used to attempt to reach the nearby mountain. Climbing both or one of these peaks in combination with Nepal’s most famous peaks around the Annapurna trek makes it one of the most spectacular adventure trips in the Himalayas. The climb to the West Peak of Chulu is challenging to overcome due to its breathtaking mountain landscapes, the challenges of trekking and mountaineering, and exposure to the diversity of Nepal’s ethnic cultures. The trail starts in the rice fields in the lowlands and gradually grows as it leads through oak and pine forests and finally ends at Manang in the high desert country and leads to the rise of Chulu West. Chulu West Base Camp lies in a small valley north of Manang, on the main road to Thorang La in Chauri Lather. Take a narrow and steep path to a base camp at 4800 m. From there, you climb steep, rocky terrain to a high camp at approx—5300 m. There are no technical difficulties in reaching the summit, but progress can be slow because, under certain conditions, the slopes are horizontal to the avalanches under certain circumstances.

The Chulu West Peak expedition combines the best elements of a Himalayan expedition. This journey is exhausting and requires all participants to know about alpine snow climbing. It is a great way to explore the culture of Nepal and climb two Himalayan peaks most safely. The Chulu West Peak Climbing trip, which accumulates a lot of experience in the Himalayas, ends early in the morning and at the end of the journey back to Pokhara at Jomsom airfield.

Travel insurance:

Travel insurance for each itinerary of our company is a prerequisite for booking vacations. At a minimum, you must have emergency and repatriation insurance that must include the cost of the mountain rescue. Carefully review the terms and conditions of your insurers. In particular, you should ensure that the following are covered: 1) Activity (i.e., tourism, trekking or mountaineering) 2) Maximum altitude reached during trekking 3) Evacuation of the helicopter in an emergency. It would be best if you know that you will bear the cost of the evacuation and return procedures and that it is your responsibility to take all costs associated with removal or medical treatment. You must be fully aware of the effects of travel insurance and understand the limitations and exclusions of your policy. Please note that in certain circumstances, our company guide can initiate helicopter rescue operations (or other necessary operations) in medical emergencies without first seeking approval from your insurance company.

Trekking and climbing guide and other staff arrangements

Experienced and professional mountaineers and guides lead your expeditions. You have climbed the mountain several times, with the support of other crew members and all the logistics for the trip. Not only in terms of qualifications, but we also make sure that our managers can demonstrate proven success when climbing mountains at high altitudes. The number of guides depends on the size of the team to maximize the chances of each climber reaching the top without compromising safety. Our expedition leaders are also experienced in treating altitude problems, including acute symptoms of mountain sickness (AMS). Crew members are adept at building tents and campgrounds, trail snowmelt, cooking, and other daily necessities.

Physical condition and experience requirements

The Chulu west peak climbing is rated 2D in difficulty. It means that the technical challenge does not include very steep ice and climbing. Climbers should feel safe and comfortable when climbing or descending fixed ropes along the steep technical terrain. We also recommend that climbers already have experience in ice and ice climbing; mostly over 6,000 m. Climbing also requires a high level of physical and mental fitness. Since the climbing experience will be exhausting, climbers with previous experience must be in good physical shape.

Acclimatization

The route of the Chulu west peak is planned with a high level of knowledge of AMS. Climbing too high up too quickly leads to an illness that is serious enough to cause death. As much higher altitude, the oxygen levels less in the air. Above the 5000m, there is a 50% less oxygen than at sea level. Therefore, your body needs more days to adapt to less oxygen. During this trip, we have separate reserve days for acclimatization only. Besides, the gradual walk will get used to the altitude better. There is also a different day that is reserved as an emergency if things do not go as planned.

Guests with known heart, lung, or blood disorders are advised to consult their doctor before travelling. Fever, loss of appetite, Mild headaches or stomach upset are symptoms of AMS. The company’s travel routes were created with the most excellent care for AMS. 

Trekking day

Since you are in a remote rural area, you will experience the early bedtime and early morning hours. A typical day of trekking begins around 6 or 7 a.m. enjoy a hearty breakfast and get started. Take your bag with the personal items you need for the day. Walk at your own pace, chat with the locals, and enjoy the scenery take pictures. The lunch break depends on the terrain and is prepared by our catering team. Usually stops after about 3 hours of walking for lunch. The lunchtime also helps with acclimatization. The goal would be to get to the next stop at sunset. After reaching the overnight point, the crew members arrange the tents. You can take rest with a cup of tea or coffee or take a nice walk in the camp. Dinner would be ready around 7 p.m. Enjoy dinner and share the day’s experiences with the team members.

    Chulu West Peak climbing review

    Nepal Tour & Trekking Service P. Ltd successfully hosted my Chulu peak climbing. My guide Pema Sherpa, 44, an experienced climbing guide, accompanied me from Kathmandu to Pokhara. He went up Chulu more than 15 times and was very comfortable. He correctly arranged the equipment like fixed rope, tens, a postal rope, gases, etc. and food during the trekking and climbing. Our two robust porters brought all necessary items to the base camp and the high camp. We successfully submitted and completed the trip. Without guides and other personnel, this would not be possible. It was an unforgettable adventure trip. Thank you for your kind help.
