Chulu East Peak is situated high above the Manang valley with breathtaking views across to the Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho peak and Manaslu. Chulu East Peak climbing is combined with the classic trek around the Annapurna massif, ascending the Marshyangdi valley and crossing the Thorong La, before descending the Kali Gandaki valley to Pokhara. Chulu East peak climbing is technically straightforward and you should be familiar with the use of your equipment, crampons, harness, ice axe, tying knots and handling climbing ropes. Most of the climbing involved will be walking roped together, including the glacial crossings.

The North-East ridge of Chulu east peak is considered the normal route to climb Chulu East Peak peak from a Base Camp on the moraine at 5334m. Most climbers make chulu east peak summit and back from Base Camp in one long day, although some have established a higher camp some where below the Chulu East Peak.
