Chulu West 6419m is situated in a little valley, which is north of Manang. This is one of the Peak can be seen from the major trail Thorong La/ Thorung la pass trekking. One should have a technical idea to climb Chulu west peak. North West Ridge is summit way. While climbing this peak, be prepared for steep scree to col a 4,900 m. North of the col ascend snow slopes for 200 meters to a rock band at 5,100 m. Climb. This difficult rock band to 5,450 m., cross on to a snow plateau at 5,530m and follow the progressively narrowing ridge to the summit (Chulu West). To climb Chulu Central, cross the snow plateau and then traverse onto the Chulu Glacier basin east of the ridge.
Ascend the broad glacier slopes avoiding serac obstacles. While not technically difficult, this area can be nasty in soft snow and is prone to avalanche under certain conditions. Continue toward the obvious Central summit on steeping snow until it is possible to gain the crest of the summit ridge, which may be corniced. This leads directly to a small saddle and the final 15-meter pinnacle. This trip sets out from Beshi Sahar, the district headquarters of Lamjung a neighboring district of Gorkha. From Beshi Sahar the trail leads up slowly to wards Manang valley, one of the highest valleys of the world situated at an altitude of 5000m. One-day rest will be set to explore the Manang Valley and for the acclimatization. From Manang valley the route heads north to lead and on to the Chulu West Base camp. Three days are set a side for the ascend of this peak and you head to Thorong-La and follow the same route come back to Katmandu as in the “Around Annapurna Trek.
