Chulu west peak climbing information
Chulu West peak is yet another tempting and fascinating trekking peak situated in the vicinity of the most eminent region of Nepal, Annapurna. The summit reads 6419 meters elevation above the sea level and is settled as prominent extension of Manang Himal north to Manang. Nepal Mountaineering Association has classified Chulu West peak as group “B” trekking peak.
Chulu West Peak is a majestic summit that attracts mountaineers from all over the world. At the base camp, climbers spend a few days acclimatizing and preparing for the ascent. They will be able to enjoy breathtaking views of the surrounding mountains, including Annapurna II, Annapurna III, and Gangapurna.
Popular climbing route to the summit of Chulu West Peak is via the North East Ridge. The ascent starts with a gentle slope leading to a snow, rocky terrain and ice ridge that becomes steeper and more technical as it progresses. The final section of the climb involves a steep snow and ice face that leads to the summit.
Chulu West together with other three Chulu peaks encapsulates the renowned Chulu massif. This peak climbing is a bit tricky due to the vague dissection of these peaks and most often climbers are confused in rightly picking between the Chulu west climb and Chulu east.
Chulu West peak climbing basically initiates at Beshi Sahar after a short drive from Kathmandu, Nepal. From Beshi Sahar, we follow the exotic and stimulating Annapurna circuit trail heading up to Manang valley. On the way, we are treated with impressive views of beautiful landscapes, lush valleys, green forests, and alpine yak pastures. From the Manang valley, we approach the tiring climb to the north and eventually reach the peaceful spread of Chulu West base camp.
After a plenty of acclimatization and preparation, we finally head to accomplish the final chore of our journey i.e. summiting the peak. At the summit, we can relish eye-popping panorama of numerous mountains. To name these include Dhaulagiri, Annapurna II, III, IV, Tukuche, Nilgiri, Manaslu, Pisang, Gangapurna, Chulu East, and possibly others. Like every peak climbing, this stuff also asks for plenty of physical robustness and high altitude experience.
