About Chulu Far East – Peak Climbing in Nepal 2022

Chulu Far East is one of Annapurna valley’s most adventurous and challenging climbs. The Chulu Far East peak (6,059m) comprises a straight trial. It stands among three Chulu Peaks facing east and lies the north of Marsyandi Khola(river) that flows in Manang valley. The route takes into the beautiful valleys under the shadow of the majestic Annapurna massif. Apart from nature, the hospitality of ethnic people will delight you.

The trail also takes you to one of the most incredible passes in the Himalayas called Thorong La Pass, located at an altitude of 5,416m.

Itinerary

Our team of staff will be eagerly waiting for your arrival at the airport. Then after you will be taken to the hotel and in the evening you will be briefed about the forthcoming trip.
It is a long drive of eight hours on the serpentine road through hills and valleys. We take breaks in between and you can enjoy the view of hills and rivers on the way. Since there are many tea shops and lodges along the road, we will have our lunch on the way. We enjoy our lunch in a peaceful setting with captivating views of the valleys in the area at Tal before moving to the settlement of Karte. To get to Dharapani, we have to cross rivers and valleys and travel past several adorable little villages. On reaching Dharapani we rest and stay overnight.
The actual hike begins, as we leave Dharapani. Moving on we come across picturesque landscapes. The further we go the closer we get to the mystical Himalayas. We will travel west along the rocky trail until we reach Marsyangdi River. To go to Manang Valley, we shall follow the river uphill. Stunning vistas of the Annapurna II and Annapurna IV Mountains will be there to enjoy. The main livelihood of the people in this area is trade with Tibetans. We will ascend the forested ridge with oak and maple trees to Dhanakyu while following the old trade route. The settlement of Latemarang will be reached as we continue along the path littered with rocks. We'll go to Koto by traversing the wooded ridges. From Koto, a descent trail will lead us to Chame. At Chame, panoramas of the Lamjung Himal, Annapurna II Mountain, and Annapurna IV Mountain will welcome us. We spend our night at Chame.
We start in the morning through up and down. We pass through wonderful forests that are decorated with pines, rhododendron, and many other trees. On our trail, we come across many Tibetan settlements. The presence of humans means cultivation, so we will be making our way through buckwheat and barley fields as well. The sight of Pisang peak indicates that Pisang village is nearby. After reaching Pisang we rest and stay overnight.
The day begins with a much-needed breakfast as we will burn more calories. We hike through beautiful terrain and reach Ghyaru as you go towards Ngawal, a lovely town perched on Chulu Peak with a backdrop of the magnificent Annapurna mountains. We move on and suddenly a small village appears to your amazement, that will be Ngawal the place where we will be spending the night. Additionally, you can venture out on your own in the evening to explore the neighborhood.
Since the trail consists of ascends and descends the day seems to physically demand. Throughout the trek, we come across streams, rivers, wooden bridges, and dense forests. We will travel through several charming communities and picturesque landscapes in the Annapurna region, enjoying wonderful views of many mountain ranges. After passing past some stunning glaciers, you will arrive at Chulu Far East Base Camp, where you can select a suitable location to pitch up camp. As we ascend towards base camp the terrain changes. Rocks and boulders with snow-covered peaks will only be found around. So the night will be spent in makeshift tents.
After leaving Far East base camp we move on to the north. Since the trail is not as usual we need to be a little cautious in case the path might be slippery. The entire course is covered with rocks boulders and ice. You'll travel toward the High camp in the north while taking in the natural splendor around you. You'll hike the ascent trail that provides a breathtaking view of the Annapurna valley as well as the peaks of Chulu East, Chulu West, Pisang Peak, and Chulu Far East. It takes roughly four hours to get to the High Camp. The hike may be tiring due to the thin air so at regular intervals deep breath is necessary. On reaching the elevation of 4,955m the High Camps are situated, where we stay overnight in tents.
This day is for rest, adjustment, and acclimatization. The dream of every climber is to scale a summit, so proper physical condition is required since the weather can go extreme. Our trainers will teach you how to use gears and equipment for climbing.
The moment has arrived; we start before dawn. Our expert will lead and guide you in the process of climbing. On reaching the top, your mission is accomplished as a glorious feat is achieved and you will be rewarded with the magnificent majestic mountains. After spending some time on top we descend, again our climbers will guide us to High Camps. Than after we return to the Base Camp.
After a couple of days with rocks and snow, it's very refreshing to see greenery again. We hike through forests, agricultural fields, and villages. This is going to be a totally different experience for you. If we reach Manang early then you can explore the place, as the people in this area are more inclined towards Buddhism many Chortens and Buddhist monuments can be seen.
Our hike starts early, Leaving Manang we join the Thorong La trek. The path is narrow but you will be taken aback to see huge yaks around. We cross the suspension bridge and a few settlements also. The views of Tilicho Lake will mesmerize you, along with the skyline of Annapurna and Tareke Kang. Eventually, we reach Chauri Ledar and stay overnight.
Again our hike begins at the normal vantage point where we can enjoy the spectacular view. Some portion of the trail is extremely easy gradual up and down. We walk through the narrow valley of Kone Khola and continue towards our next destination. On the way, we cross the suspension bridge and tea shop as well. We'll stroll through the mountain meadow. From most of the site, we can view the mountains Gangapurna and Annapurna III. After hours of walking, we reach Thorong Phedi which is an ideal place to stay overnight.
This is one of the toughest but incredible treks. We ascend towards Thorong La pass which is one of the highest navigable passes in the world. Depending on the weather and the climbers' fitness, it will take us around 4 hours to reach the summit of the pass as we follow the cattle track through snow and moraine. Prayer flags will be draped around the summit. We will enjoy the views of Yakgawa Kang Peak to the north and the Kali Gandaki Valley to the west. Ultimately, Thorong La will lead us to Muktinath temple with a sharp descent. Views of Dhaulagiri and Tukuche Peak repay the journey. To reach Jhong Valley, traverse the grassy slopes and moraine route. We'll continue walking till we get to Muktinath, where we'll spend the night. From here gigantic mountain massif especially Annapurna and a wonderful view of the valley can be seen. Now we descend and after a while, we reach the outskirts of Muktinath where we spend the night.
Today early morning is a religious time we pay a visit to the main temple, ‘Muktinath’ which is one of the major pilgrimage sites for Buddhists and Hindus. After the visit, we go down to Ranipauwa village later. The path descends down a desolate hillside to Kagbeni, then continues on to Jomsom. After the visit, we pack our bags and carry on hill terrain as usual. On the way, we will be heading alongside the beautiful river Kali Gandaki. Breath-taking views and narrow roads will certainly refresh you. Then we reach Jomsom a nice place to spend the night.
The choice is yours, whether you want to take a flight or drive. The flight may be convenient but if you are in the mood of enjoying the serpentine roads with hills and valleys then driving will be the best option. If you choose to fly to Pokhara, we check in at the airport after breakfast in order to return to Pokhara by plane. We will have the nerve-wracking sensation of taking this thrilling 15-minute flight to Pokhara between the gorges of the two enormous mountains, Annapurna and Dhaulagiri. However, in case of a flight, it will take around 20 minutes. In the evening you can hang near Fewa Lake and rest at a hotel overnight.
On this day, we will go back to Kathmandu. You have a choice today to either flight or drive. Our guide will take you to the hotel. By bus, it takes 5 hours to get from Pokhara to Kathmandu and by flight, only 30 minutes. After reaching Kathmandu you can have a rest and visit a few nearby places. You will be driven to the hotel, where you may have a comfortable night.
On this day you can visit some popular places in the valley, this place has a few things to offer regarding the historical monuments, religious places, and tourist hubs as well. There are many ethnic groups and various customs and traditions in Kathmandu. Besides, you can also try some Nepali and local Newari cuisine when in Kathmandu.
Finally, with a beautiful memory, you will depart from Kathmandu. Our staff will reach you at the airport and bid you farewell. We hope that Trekkers Nepal’s endeavor has made your experience more enjoyable.
