This is a smaller peak compared to Chulu West and Chulu Central in Manang Himal. It lies south east of Chulu West and offers
breathtaking views of mountains such as Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri,
Tilicho Peak and Mt. Manaslu. Climbing to this peak is technically difficult for beginners. Climbers
must be familiar with the use of crampons, harness ice axes, tying knots and handling climbing
ropes. Major sections of the Chulu East Peak are devoted to rope using and glacial crossings.
We begin our overland journey to Besisahar from Kathmandu and the trek begins up to the base camp of Chulu East Peak. After the summit, we make our way up to Throng La Pass at over 5,000m and then walk down into the spectacular Muktinath. The next day we start the descent trek to Jomsom and take a flight back to Pokhara.

You can then download a trip application (in PDF format) and send it to us by mail with two recent passport photos. If you have any questions, please feel free to call us at 303-507-2530. Our office hours are Monday through Friday from 8:30AM to 5:00PM Mountain Time.
