  • Description Edit •  Add / Share you knowledge with mates

    Chulu West is one of three peaks of Chulu Mountain. They are all has different characters. If Chulu Far East is the Island Peak of the Annapurnas, then Chulu West is the Mera Peak alternative. There is no real technical difficulty in reaching the summit but progress can be slow depending on snow conditions. Above base camp some steep loose rock requires some fixing of ropes. However, climbing the Chulu West Peak requires a good physical condition and a high degree of stamina. Between Chulu West and East is Chulu Central. Chulu Central is rarely attempted by commercial groups, being very similar in nature to the West peak. It has a sometimes tricky rock section to negotiate before the actual summit.
