Trip Overview

Of the two Chulu (East and West), Chulu West is the higher peak. The first ascent in to Chulu West in 1952 by a Japanese Expedition team. It is lies in a small valley north of Manang; off the main trail to the Thorong La. Chulu East was climb by a German Expedition team in 1955 via the North East Ridge.

These peaks are lying together with forms an integral part of the Manang Himal, which in turns is included in the Larger Damodar Himal.
