Chulu West Expeditions - 21 Days

Out of the two Chulus (East and West), Chulu West is the higher peak. It lies in a small valley north of Manang, off the main trail to the Thorong La. It is also difficult to differentiate the two Chulus. The /Chulu group comprises of four peaks; two in the east and two in the west. These peaks are lying together which forms an integral part of the Manang Himal which in turn is included in the Larger Damodar Himal.

There are no technical difficulties in ascending these peaks but the progress can be slow as the slopes are vulnerable to avalanches in certain conditions.

  • The first ascent to Chulu West was in 1952 by a Japanese Expedition team.
  • Chulu East was climbed by a German Expedition team in 1955 via the North East Ridge.
