Peak Climbing

Chulu East Peak

Chulu East (6,584m/21,596ft) peak is a part of the Manang Himal, and is quite rightly included in the larger Damodar Himal, the eastern limit of which runs south from Chako and Peak at 6687 meters in north-to-south direction along the Hunlung Khola, Nar Khola and Phu Khola. To the south it is encircled with the Marsyangdi Khola and the Mesokanta La. To the west its limit is the Kali Gandaki and to the north the Parchekya La (5,447m/17870ft). Chulu East was climb by a German Expedition team in 1955 via the North East Ridge.

The North-East Ridge is considered the normal route to climb this peak from a Base Camp on the moraines at 5334m (17500ft). Most climbers make it to the top and back from Base Camp in one long day although some have, in the past, established a higher camp somewhere below the peak. Another subsidiary peak called Chulu Far East (6059m) 19880ft) may also be attempted from this approach.

Many climbers are confused between the exact location East and West peaks as the range has four or more summits in the immediate vicinity which are unmarked in maps of this area. As a result many climbing parties have mistakenly climbed one of these peaks thinking it to be Chulu East or West. It is usually understood that with the permit to climb the East or West peak an attempt can be made to the nearby peak as well.
