Chulu West Peak Climbing

Chulu West Peak Climbing

    Chulu West Peak Climbing

The Annapurna region is one of the top destinations for trekking in theworld andit offers grand views of the three highest mountain ranges; Annapurna, Dhaulagiri and  Manasalu peaks at over 8000 meters elevation as well as ranges of snow capped trekking peaks over 6000m. The trail follows the Marshyangdi valley all the way to its source, the glacial lake in Manang, through the rural farm villages and terraced farm fields. The expedition takes you through many varying climates and terrain. It changes from the sub-tropic climate to the arctic landscape and the trek goes through beautiful rain forest ascending right up to the alpine timbers.

After the Manang village we head for Leader which is a lower part of Chulu mountain range. There are three different Chulu peaks; Chulu West is the higher peak among them. It was first ascended in 1952 by a Japanese Expedition team. The Base Camp of this peak is situated in a small narrow valley in the northern part of Leader. There are several other peaks close by which are also a part of Chulu massif therefore it can be difficult to differentiate between the two east and west Chulus. The region comprises of four peaks: two in the east and two in the west. There is no technical difficulty in ascending these peaks but progress can be slow as the slopes are vulnerable to avalanches in certain conditions. 
After completing the great expedition we will be heading up to cross the Throng La and we will experience scenic deserts and the famous pilgrimage site of Muktinath temple. Further downhill walk along the holy river bank and enjoy the village of Jomsom which is the capital of the Mustang district.

Throughout this trek we have the opportunity to interact with a wide range of cultures. Most of the tribal inhabitants are Gurungs, Magars and Thakalis. The higher region is mainly inhabited with Tibetan people and Buddhism is followed and in the lower regionsare predominantly Hindus with some other mixed cultures.  Themountains and attractive glacial lakes with the high Throng La pass (5,416m/17765 ft) makes this area a unique place to visit. Not only will you experience greatculture and spectacular mountains but you will be exposed to a vast array of Himalayan wildlife including the rare species of Snow Leopard, Blue Sheep and Golden Eagle.Another attraction along the trek is the sight of the domestic Yak throughout the trip.
