Climb Chulu West and experience a classic Himalayan trek and climb. This expedition combines a trek of the Annapurna Circuit with an ascent of Chulu West at 6419 m. This is a very enjoyable and remote trekking and climbing adventure. There are never any crowds on Chulu West which is very different from the Everest region. When we climb this mountain, it’s usually just us.
The Base Camp location for this expedition is one of the best in Nepal. We have a beautiful stream running right next to our camp coupled with spectacular views of Annapurna I. Our High Camp and Advanced High Camp locations also provide great views of the Annapurnas in every direction. From the summit, you’ll marvel at uninterrupted views to the south across the main Annapurna range. These are in stark contrast to the Tibetan Plateau in the north. We then cap our climbing achievement with a trek across the famous Thorong La (Pass) at 5416 m. Views of Dhaulagiri at 8167 m. are stunning.
You’ll take in stunning views of the entire Annapurna range right along this classic trekking route. Annapurna I, II, III & IV are just the beginning. Midway we detour to Chulu West Base Camp and then to advance Base Camp. Here we begin our 3-day climb of this seldom-visited mountain.
