Chulu East Peak Climbing( 6584m/21,601ft)

Rated 5/5 based on 1 customer reviews

Chulu East Peak Climbing(6584m/21,601ft) is located just north of the Annapurna massif at 28°44'09''N / and 84°02'10" E. With its stunning setting, technical aspects, a spectacular 900m climbing route, and fast access to the peak, it makes this objective climbing second to none-in Nepal. Chulu East is part of the Chulurange, which consists of Chulu West6429m, Chulu Far East6029m, and Chulu West6584m. The Peak Chulu East provides breathtaking views of Annapurna (I II, III, and IV), Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak, and Mt. Manaslu. Chulu Far East was first ascended in 1955 by a German expedition via the Northeast Ridge. Chulu East was first climbed in 1979 by Dick Isherwood & John Noble via the Northeast Ridge. It forms an integral part of Manang Himal, combining both Chulu East and Chulu West Peaks. SA climbs are best in the spring and autumn seasons. itineraries

To approach Chulu East Peak's base camp, you start with overland transportation via a private vehicle. After arriving in the village of Besisahar, you begin your trek, which first leads you into the Marsyandi Valley. The sheer diversity of flora and fauna along the trail to Chulu East Peak Climbing is incredible. The trekking to get to Chulu peak base camp through the Annapurna Circuit will take about a week.

The standard climbing route is via Northeast ridge. We will attempt the summit from high camp (5400m) located just below Chulu Far East(6059m). The high center or(C1) lies 3.7km North of base camp, the average slope between BC-C1 is 22°with an elevation gain of 900m. We take one day for acclimatization at C1, but we adjust the schedule accordingly if the client needs more time. The summit route is 4.5km long from the high camp. It requires advanced glacier travel skills and navigation to reach the bottom of the summit ridge successfully. The steep of the entire climb is at the bottom of the summit ridge, where you encounter a slope of 45° for 450m. Once on the hill, the average gradient is below 30°, and the overall distance measures 2km; along this ridge, there are 600m of elevation gain. Summit day will be very long and strenuous, and you have to climb from high camp to the summit and return to the Base Camp one day. A total distance of 12km, a total elevation gain of 1400m, and an elevation loss of 2300m.

Along the way, Satori Adventures plans into the itinerary a Chulu Peak climb, which consists of moderate snow and ice climbing over 6000m. After your successful summit of Chulu East, you will make your way up through the Throng La Pass (5416m) then down into the spectacular Muktinath valley. The next day you will start your descent down to Jomsom and then finally fly out of Pokhara.

Satori Adventures provides very professional, helpful, and friendly service from Kathmandu to the summit throughout this expedition. Our objective is to provide good quality, useful, safe, pleasant, stress-free, and comprehensive service to maximize your summit opportunity. Depending on the size of the group, Satori issues staff for each expedition. We try to provide as little staff as possible to keep your costs down. We supply chefs and kitchen assistants that prepare and serve three delicious and freshly cooked meals a day; along with that, hot drinks are available 24hrs a day. At base camp and the high camps, we provide spacious expedition quality personal tents for all our clients. Sherpa will set up intermediate facilities above base camp (medium meaning lightly equipped with food, water, gear). Upon the client's request, we supply a personal climbing Sherpa in a 2:1 ratio, two clients for 1 Sherpa.

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal. Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage & Small Industries). Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

There is only one restriction for obtaining permits for 6000m peaks, the government of Nepal does not allow climbing permits to be issued to a climber who is below the age of 16. Beyond that restriction any climber with appropriate fitness and skills can attempt a 6000 meter mountain in the Himalaya. However, our policies for accepting clients on these peaks require that the client has as list experience of British hill hiking and some knowledge of rock & Ice climbing.

For those seeking the experience of climbing a 6000m peak, Nepal should be at the top of your list of countries to visit. With the rich variety of flora and fauna, the everlasting smiles of the rural Nepalese, the hospitality of the village communities, the favorable climatic and geographical conditions, the cultural and linguistic diversity and the rich cultural spirit which represents a unique blend of Buddhism and Hinduism Nepal is the adventure capital of the world. With 1400 trekking peaks above 6000m and 8 of the 14 8000m peaks in the world it is fair to say that your mountaineering ambitions can be taken to a new level here in Nepal. Will never start and complete without having Himalayan peak experience.

It is important for each climber to choose the right expedition guide service that not only suites their needs, but provides the best safely and secure mountaineering experience possible. There are more than 1,700 trekking companies in Nepal who offer 6,000 meter peak climbing, but only about 30 companies who operate 6,000 meter peaks on a regular basis. We are proud to be one of these 30 companies and consistently offer.

It is very important that the climbers who choose Satori Adventures for this trip of a lifetime experience have expectations that are compatible with the program we offer and the style of expedition Satori Adventures runs. We do not want to simply “fill our expedition”, but instead we want to comprise a team of companionable people who are focused on reaching the summit with the highest level of support and safety standards that can be provided by a guiding service on Mt Everest. We team this with the best standards of food and quality equipment to further assist each client reach their full potential. We feel that we offer the best environment and opportunity for you to be successful on the world’s highest mountain.

Climbing an 6,000 meter peak is not difficult for those trekkers and hikers who have some experience of Ice axe, walking on fixed rope and using crampons above snow. The steep about 45º snow climbing and ice-climbing that can be required entices craftsman to test. If you are considering climbing an 6000m peak there are several questions that you need to ask yourself and be truthful about your findings. Am I physically fit enough? Am i technically capable of handling the expected terrain? Am I mentally capable of the hardship associated with high altitude expeditions?

Our climbing Sherpa guides are experienced and highly qualified. Most were born in high altitude regions and have spent much of their lives above 4,000 meters. We provide extensive training to our guides in technical climbing as well as English, customer relationships and Wilderness First Aid. These guides are all certified mountain guides via the Nepal Mountaineering Association and generally have three former summits of the 8,000 meter peak that they are guiding. Our high altitude Sherpa climbing guides have many years of experience and are qualified through training with TAAN and NATHAM. They are highly skilled in all aspects of mountaineering in Nepal and hold a Nepal Government License, Mountaineering Association Accreditation and Summit Certificates for Nepal Himalayan peaks. All of these government licenses are displayed in our office.

To climb an 6000m peak your physical fitness is very important, excellent physical fitness is required. Not only for the opportunity to succeed, but for your overall safety and enjoyment Our guides like to tell clients, “Be in the best shape of your life”.

Persons below 16 years of age are restricted from climbing 6,000 meter peaks in the Himalaya of Nepal. This was a recent change in Nepal.

On popular trekking trails we utilize lodges/guest houses (aka teahouses) the meals will be provided by these lodges. Menu meals are often available including soups, noodles, rice, and dishes. On certain 6,000 meter trekking routes, lodges and guest houses may be limited, or not available. In these instances, accommodations will be via tents and the meals will be provided by our staff. In these instances meals will be prepared on the route with canister stoves or natural fires. While in base camp our expedition cooks will prepare meals. Above base camp the meals will be provided by our climbing Sherpa. Above base camp we always supply high altitude food that meets our clients’ requirements.

Communication will vary greatly depending on the location. Most trekking routes have local VHF phones and increasingly more places get mobile coverage from a variety of carriers. We recommend upon arriving picking up a CDMA, Ncell or Namaste pre paid card and insert that into your mobile device. In remote areas, communication is generally not available, or on a very limited basis. Some other and more costly options include the use of a Satellite phone. We like to use Delorme. We will always supply a phone that is available upon the clients request during trekking and mountaineering expeditions.

A licensed, trained and experienced climbing Sherpa Guide will lead an 6000mk trekking peak on 6,000 meter peaks above base camp. On the approach to base camp our teams may be lead by a licensed Sirdar or professional mountaineering/trekking guide. As per group size most of the trekking peak will guiding by the same climbing Sherpa guide wile our climbing Sherpa guide are also government license holder trekking guide as well.

Yes. All trekkers and climbers are required to purchase adequate travel insurance, which includes a helicopter emergency evacuation plan. Insurance is not expensive compared to the cost of an evacuation during an expedition. Without having travel insurance during your trek or climb you will be financially responsible for all the costs of your evacuation and treatment. These bills can be tens of thousands of dollars.

You need to obtain your travel insurance policy before you depart your home. Your insurance should cover high altitude mountaineering, mountain rescue and helicopter transport to a medical facility. These types of policies are readily available through many travel agents and/or our affiliates. Before purchasing a package make sure that the policy covers helicopter evacuation from remote mountain locations, make sure that they will pick you up in a fully equipment medical transport helicopter.

Most of the 6,000 meter trekking peak equipment including food, climbing/personal gear will be delivered by jeep, truck and flight. After that we will use yaks, porters, or mules to reach base camp or advanced base camp. With full board service, porters will also assist in carrying the clients gear to the higher camps. We provide a personal climbing Sherpa guide (3:1 ratio). This personal climbing Sherpa guide will setup your tent and prepare your high altitude food.

Spring and autumn are the best seasons for climbing in Nepal. More specifically September-October and April-May are great months. The season for climbing 6,000 meter peaks in Pakistan run from June through August.

There is no legal requirement to join a climbing group to climb an 6,000 meter peak, but if climbing in Tibet, the Tibet Mountaineering Association requires a minimum of two persons to issue the climbing permit. With that being said climbing solo is generally more expensive and much less safe. We highly recommend hiring a reputable guide service for a safe and secure summit opportunity.

In the high camps we utilize freeze dried packaged foods. They offer a variety of high quality flavors and are easy to prepare at altitude. Your personal climbing Sherpa will melt sufficient ice for hot water, tee, coffee and a variety of juices. At high camp and camp one, it may be possible to ferry fresh food from base camp.

The Advance Base Camp is always located at a glacier moraine and it is protected from landslides and avalanches. High camps and Camp 1 are generally located in a safe location, however camp 1 has to be chosen wisely due to some areas are prone to heavy snow accumulation. Our main objective is to provide high quality service with an experienced climbing staff where you have unforgettable trips. Our first priority is your safety and security and this is why we only use experienced climbing Sherpa guides.

All foreign visitors except Indian nationals are required to obtain a Nepal visa. These visas are generally easy to obtain upon arrival at the airport. China, some African countries, Afghanistan and Pakistan are more difficult and generally require more time. Since spring 2015 Nepal Immigration has introduced a computerized automated visa system making the arrival immigration process fast and convenient. For Tibet expeditions you will need a two week single entry visa on arrival and a two week single entry visa on departure, which will cost US$ 25.00 per two weeks. Most of the 8,000 meter Himalayan expeditions will be more than 40 days, so we advise that you obtain a three month multiple entry visas which will cost US$ 100.00. If you are going to leave Nepal within 24 hours you may request free transit visa.

Yes. The climbing permit is included in the package cost and Satori will organize the permit, visa and transport service.

In Kathmandu we provide you with your requested category of hotel accommodation and will send you to a quiet part of Thamel. During the trekking we provide tea house accommodation and camping at base camp and above camps.

Our experience tells us it requires -20 to -35 C with liners will be enough. If you have we advise you to bring with you otherwise Satori adventures will provide during the trekking and climbing period.

Satori Adventures will provide a thick quality pad for use in base camp and advance base camp. You will need to provide your own sleeping pad for the higher camps. Foam pads generally work best, but some clients prefer air mattresses.

If you need further information please contact us at info@satoriadventuresnepal.com We recommend purchasing down gear as well as fleece and Gore-Tex jackets from the brand quality such as North face, Ozark and Marmot. During an 6000m peak climbing we advice that you use either La-sportiva climbing boots for 6000m or brand climbing shoes. Your personal gear is one of the major factors for a successful summit opportunity. Make sure to invest in high quality first hand equipment. You will also be required to have basic climbing gear such as a helmet, ice-axes, crampons, climbing and trekking boots alpine style harness (Black Diamond Alpine Bod), ascender device. The info pack for your personal expedition will contain details.

There are several options for acclimation during your 6000m expedition. If you have time we always advice to attempt some base camp, or view point before starting to climb trekking peak.

Many of our clients for the 6000m peak climbing are cyclists, runners and fitness enthusiasts. Some of these clients ride 30 to 40 km bike rides, run marathons. If clients are participating in these or similar fitness endeavors, the next step would be ramp up your training.

Our expeditions are scheduled during spring and autumn, with the climbing window scheduled for the monsoon change period. This allows us to have a summit bid when the wind stops on most 6,000 meter peaks for a few weeks before the monsoon changes direction. The difference between spring and autumn expeditions is the change of temperatures from cold to warmer and from warmer to colder respectively.

Our guides are professionals who are trained and assessed either via the International Federation of Mountain Guides Associations (IFMGA) resulting in a greater repertoire of skills that enables them to provide a dedicated level of security to you during the expedition, or many years of mountaineering experience on the world’s biggest peaks. Our guides are experience in both advanced and basic rescue courses and all have a minimum of 3 years guiding on Everest and Manaslu.

Chulu East peak climbing successfully

I've just returned from an incredible experience climbing Chulu Far East and trekking the Annapurna circuit with Satori. I can t speak highly enough of Rishi and his team at Satori - everything was perfect, from the first email I sent to our last dinner in Kathmandu. Rishi himself is one of the warmest, most kind heated and hard working people I have ever met. He looked after me from start to finish, ensuring my climb ran smoothly even when he wasn t there. He provided full assistance and advice when the climbing conditions changed due to bad weather. Other clients I dined with in Kathmandu confirmed he d done the same with them. When my trek had to finish early due to illness he let me stay in his (beautiful) hotel in Kathmandu, assisted me in getting medical help and stayed in touch with me until I left Nepal. My climbing guide Ongchhu was incredibly professional and experienced, having climbing Everest 3 times (and pretty much every mountain in Nepal!). Not only this but he was, as were my two porters, lovely (and hilarious) company. They felt like close family for the 2 and a half weeks I was with them. I now consider all four of them dear friends and can t wait to return to Nepal to climb with Satori again. I put my full trust in Satori and they delivered beyond I ever expected... I m so grateful and can t wait to return to climb with them again next year. Thank you Rishi mero sathi...
