All about Chulu West Peak Climbing
If you are taking the next step up from beginner peaks in the Annapurna region then look no further than Chulu west peak. With an elevation of 6,419m, it provides promising views of Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri & Annapurna.
Chulu West Peak Climbing Nepal is considered as one of the best Mountaineering trekking peaks in Annapurna Region.
Climbing Chulu West Peak requires a very high degree of fitness and skills in climbing equipment as summit includes technical sections that require the use of crampons, harness, ropes and ice axes. We offer you the option of summiting either The Chulu East Or West Peak, but Chulu west offers best views so far.
Due to new ascend just before crossing High camp we need to put 400m fix rope, inconsequence we need 2 more days for it.
