Annapurna is beautiful not just because of its giant range of Mountain but also due to the presence of beautiful and easy peaks like Chulu which gives added beauty and assessment to famous Annapurna Range. For the climbing dream makers, Chulu is the best as for its easy assibilates and the amazing view seen throughout its trial from the starting days. Chulu West Peak offers an interesting peak climbing opportunity for those looking for an adventure and once in a life experience in the Himalayan kingdom.
Chulu West Peak is considered as one of the best peaks in the Annapurna region, this is also because of the magnificent views of Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Annapurna, and other Himalaya peaks that you can witness while trying hard to achieve your dream of reaching the top. After some initial preparation, final checklist and city tour in Kathmandu, we start the mission driving to Syange from Kathmandu. Syange is the start point for the trek. The initial days up to Manang Valley is considered to be soft and easy whereas the camps above Manang needs extra effort to cope up with but the joy after achieving the goal have no bounds.
