Arrival in Kathmandu Airporty & transfer to hotel(1350m)
Climbing Chulu East Peak (6,584m) with Zambuling Trekking is a great way to spice up your trek in the Annapurna region. It lies just south east of its complement Chulu West and provides breathtaking views of the Annapurna range, the Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and Mt. Manaslu.
The climbing involves some technical difficulty especially related to crossing large glacier sections. Familiarity with the use of crampons, ice axe as well as previous experience with roped glacier crossing is essential.
The history of its first ascent is somewhat murky with a German expedition ascending a summit in the Chulu group in 1955 which could have been either Chulu East or Chulu Far East.A confirmed ascent of Chulu East was completed in 1979. The conditions of the glacier have changed over the years but the fantastic panorama on the summit is still the same.
The approach to the Chulu East Peak base camp starts with the drive (in a private vehicle) to Dumre where the trek also starts up to the Marsyandi Valley. The diversity of flora and fauna along the trail of the Annapurna Region until reaching the Chulu East Peak is incredible as the French have already noted in their famous 1950 Annapurna expedition.
Our Chulu East package includes the climb as well as the trek before and after. From Katmandu we head to Besisahar and start the trek on the popular Annapurna Circuit trail. Chulu East Peak itself can be reached within a week. After climbing Chulu East, we make our way up the Throng La pass at over 5000m; then down into the spectacular Muktinath,; another part of the Annapurna Region. We then start the descent to Jomsom for an adventurous 20 minute flight back to Pokhara.
Zambuling Trekking offers you a full board package including the climbing permit from the NMA and all other necessary logistics – from arrival in Kathmandu up to your departure. We organize your accommodation in Kathmandu as well as throughout your trek, our cooks freshly prepare you nutritious meals throughout the climbing period and experienced and professional trekking and climbing guides accompany you on the trek as well as the climb. In addition, we can organize any sightseeing in and around Kathmandu as well as the Pokhara valley. Upon your request, we can also offer only base camp service (including the climbing permit) where the climber may arrange all required logistics for any part of the climb above base camp.
The package can be flexibly adjusted to your requirements – feel free to contact us any time for suggestions and advice. We’d be happy to take you on this adventure.
