Mt.Chulu East Peak (6584m)

Mt.Chulu East Peak (6584m). The Mt. Chulu East Peak Climbing is popular trekking peak climbing package in Annapurna Region. The Chulu East (6584 m) is  located north of Annapurna massif. It presents a very attractive peak climbing objective for trekkers doing Annapurna Circuit. Either full version or half version to Manang. It can be an exciting extension to trekking. And, an accessible introduction to snow climbing experience for climbers. Also, with a degree of technical ability converting the trek into a safe but exciting climbing adventure.

Technically it is a scramble at a reasonably high elevation. And it allows easy way to achieve the elevation goal of 6000 m. The scramble is on an average slope of 40 deg with short sections of 50 deg on rock and snow with good protection throughout. And, without any significant climbing objective danger. Similarly, the technical part of the climb is the section of glacier. In between a notch below Far East Chulu and the Northeast shoulder of East Chulu.

Therefore, once on the Northeast ridge the climb is easy and well protected on a relatively wide ridge. The climbing route from High Camp to the summit is very long. Hence, the climb is strenuous.

Chulu East is a part of Gung gang Himal including Chulu West (6419 m), Chulu Central (6584 m), Chulu East (6429 m) and Chulu Far East (6059). The entire range is flanked by a range of glaciers from the North side. And climbing involves negotiating glacier traverse to each of the peaks. The access along the Annapurna Circuit is world class long distance trek. Thus, added with diverse vegetation and stunning views along picturesque Marsyangdi River Valley, Kali Gandaki Valley and from the Thorung La pass.


There is the opportunity to experience diverse cultures of different Nepalese ethnic groups living in mutual respect and harmony, unusual in today busy, desperate and confused world. On the Western side of Thorung La Pass in Muktinath and Jharkot villages we will experience Tibetan type of cultures and architecture.
The views from Chulu East, 400 m higher then Pisang Peak, are absolutely stunning on the entire Annapurna range including Annapurna I, Annapurna South, Gangapurna, Machhapuchhre, and entire magnificent Grand Barrier from Tilicho Peak to Roc Noir. The access to the Base Camp from  village along Julu Khola valley is also very spectacular with the view on Chulu East and its smaller cousin Chulu Far East.

My country Nepal

Nepal is a very beautiful country. It is also a landlocked country. China lies in the east side of the country. Likewise, India in west, north and south. It lies in the northern hemisphere. Our country has three geographical zones. They are Himalayan, Mountainous and Terai. Here, we have monsoon climate. It is very cold and dry during winter. And hot, stormy and rainy in summer. Furthermore, it is rich in natural beauty and resources. Here are long and wide rivers. Such as Koshi, Gandaki, Karnali, etc. Moreover, here are large lakes also. Like Rupa, Begnas, Rara, etc. Likewise, we have green valleys, lovely water falls, etc. Similarly, it is rich in religious and historical heritages. Lumbini, Gorkha, Janakpur, Kathmandu are the famous examples.

Nepal is highly diverse country. And has rich geography, culture, and religions. The mountainous north has many mountains. It includes eight of the world’s ten highest mountains.

They are more than 20,000 ft. (6,096 m) above sea level.

People of many castes and religions live here. About hundred languages are spoken  here. Our popular foods are dal bhat, dhindo, gundurk etc. Similarly, Dashain, Tihar, Lhosar, Id etc. They are the most popular festivals. We celebrate these festivals very happily. Most  of the people are farmers. They grow rice, corn, wheat, millet, potato etc. Some people in the cities are businessmen also.  Likewise, some have industries. Therefore, people living here are very laborious.

Nepal is rich in natural resources. So, tourists love to visit our country. They can see endangered birds and animals here. Also, they can enjoy natural beauty. So, tourism is our potential industry.

Nepal is small but rich in natural resources. Although it is poor by economic condition. Nepal is developing country. To develop soon,  we have to aware all the citizen. We must provide education equally. To both men and women. Government should bring advance program. This may help citizen in development process. And, provide different facilities to citizen. And it’ll give benefit to citizen. Finally, it’ll help the  government also.

Nepal is a beautiful country. So, we have to publish it all over the world. And it’ll help to attract tourist. In this way, we can control our economic condition. Therefore, we can achieve success by developing our strengths. face book
