Amidst the high mountain peaks in the Annapurna Region, 6,419 meters above the sea level rests a mountain peak which we call Chulu West Peak, famous for its jaw-dropping sceneries and challenging climbing route. Whether it be amateur trekkers or experienced climbers, this peak climbing can quench the thrust of any kind of adventure seekers.
Although the route to climb the Chulu West Peak is more straight-forward compared to its counterpart, the Chulu East Peak, the long tough slog through the snow makes the West Peak equally demanding and technical. Climbers are expected to have some knowledge of using the mountaineering equipment otherwise climbing the Chulu West Peak is not possible. Once you reach the top of the peak, what you see is absolutely pleasant. The panorama of the Himalayas to the south and the mountains of Tibet and China in the north, as seen from the Chulu West Peaks, make it one of the memorable days of your life. We must not ignore the technicalities and difficulties of this route; therefore, our itinerary is designed so as to provide you with proper acclimatization and familiarization to the environment.
The trip begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Jagat, which is a thrilling experience in itself. Then you begin walking along the ridges, valleys, riverbanks and plenty of plain and rugged landscapes as you can imagine. We pass through plenty of forests and human settlements before setting out to the top of the Chulu West Peak. While retracing our track we divert towards Jomson. During this leg, we pass through the highest pass in the world, Thorang-La Pass, which is an adventure in itself. We visit the popular religious destination of the area – Muktinath before finally flying out of the upper Himalayan region towards Pokhara.
Spring and autumn are the best seasons for Chulu West Peak Climbing. Winter can also be a great time to complete the trek if you are well prepared for the cold weather. The mountains are crystal clear in this season and the route is also less crowded due to relatively little number of tourists.
