Chulu West is one of the most adventurous and challenging climbing peaks in the Annapurna region. At 6419 meters height, this expedition provides all the fun, thrill and adventure you expect from a peak climbing experience. The unstable weather condition of Annapurna range and steep snow slopes are what makes Chulu Peak Climbing thrilling. Despite the thrill that the Chulu West Peak climbing provides, we here at Legend of Himalaya, strongly believe that once all the proper security guidelines have been set in place, it will be a great climbing experience for anyone willing to try.
Chulu West Peak was scaled for the first time by a team of Japanese explorers. They scaled the peak from the west ridge in 1952 A.D. After the initial success of the expenditure, Chulu West Peak, became a popular climbing destination amongst the Annapurna massifs. The region of Annapurna and its massifs are interconnected with Meso Kanto La (on the south), and Thorung La Passes 5416m (on the North). Atop the Chulu Peak, you will have stunning views of Mount Dhaulagiri (5416m), Mount Nilgiri (2637 m), Mount Annapurna I (8091m), Mount Tukuche Peak ( 6920 m) and various other small snow-capped peaks. Anyone planning to embark on Chulu West Peak should be fit both mentally and physically, as the body has to acclimatize in high altitudes. The guides and Sherpa that Legend of Himalaya employees have the required knowledge and skills to assure a safe and fun-filled climbing experience. The trip takes you to the district of Manang, safe and isolated from urbanization where you can study and experience rural life in the Himalayas of Nepal.
