2 mn read

Chulu East Peak, standing at an elevation of 6,584 meters, is another challenging mountain located in the Manang District of the Nepal Himalayas. Unlike other mountains, it is not just about nestling in the lap of nature or embarking on an adventurous journey but a test of physical and mental endurance. This blog will take you through our journey to conquer the summit of Chulu East Peak and the unforgettable experiences it offers.

Day 1: Arrival and Acclimatization

We began our journey with a flight from Kathmandu to Pokhara, the gateway to the Annapurna region. From there, we drove to Besisahar, the starting point of our trek. Our first day was dedicated to acclimatization, as we adjusted to the altitude and the surroundings. We spent the night at a lodge in Besisahar, enjoying the warm hospitality of the locals.

Day 2-4: Trek to Chulu East Base Camp

The next few days were spent trekking through the picturesque landscape of the Annapurna region. We crossed several suspension bridges, walked along the banks of the Marsyangdi River, and passed through traditional Nepalese villages. The trek was challenging, but the views of the surrounding mountains and the lush green valleys made it all worth it. On the fourth day, we reached the Chulu East Base Camp, located at an altitude of 4,800 meters. The base camp was our home for the next few days as we prepared for the summit climb. We spent our time resting, eating nutritious food, and getting acclimatized to the high altitude.

Day 5-7: Climbing Chulu East Peak

The climb to the summit of Chulu East Peak was a test of physical and mental strength. We started early in the morning, carrying our climbing gear and enough food and water for the day. The climb was steep and demanding, with several sections requiring the use of ropes and crampons. As we climbed higher, the views became more breathtaking. We could see the snow-capped peaks of the Himalayas, including Annapurna II, III, and IV, as well as the stunning landscape below. The climb was challenging, but the sense of accomplishment we felt when we reached the summit was unmatched.

Day 8-10: Descent and Return to Base Camp

After spending a few hours at the summit, we began our descent. The climb down was equally challenging, as we had to navigate through the same steep and rocky terrain. We reached the base camp in the evening, feeling exhausted but satisfied with our achievement. The next day, we packed our gear and began our descent to Besisahar. The trek was easier now, as our bodies had adjusted to the altitude. We spent the night at a lodge in Besisahar, reflecting on our journey and the memories we had created.


Conquering the summit of Chulu East Peak was a memorable journey that tested our physical and mental limits. It was not about nestling in the lap of nature or embarking on an adventurous journey but a testament to human endurance and determination. The views from the summit were breathtaking, and the sense of accomplishment we felt was unmatched. This journey taught us the importance of perseverance, teamwork, and the joy of overcoming challenges.
