Private Vehicle / Flight
Want to conquer the Himalayas above 5000m?? Chulu Far East Climb Tilicho Lake Trek could be one of your choices… Beyond the majestic Annapurna Himalaya, lies the famous peak called as Chulu Far East (6059m). The peak is located in the group of Annapurna Mountain range known as Manang Himal. It displays the panoramic view of the ranges to the far ends of the world. Our journey towards the mountain is followed by a trek to the Annapurna circuit in a span of 3 days before settling for the base camp in the village of Gyaru and Ngawa. Chulu Far East is known as the Island Peak of Himalayas. It offers easier access to climbers without much expertise. After camping, we move forward to the pinnacle summit by passing through the snow slopes. Plunging to Manang, the journey is set forth in the Marshyangdi Valley, followed by the 6-day trek to Jomsom, passing through adoring Tilicho Lake and Tilicho La pass, which serves as the pathway for Annapurna circuit.

Usually, the trekking is quite accessible on foot without much hardship and pretty straightforward. The path is an established trail to the location, hence making the journey quite easy with an exception at the Tilicho La pass. The path to the pass is full of snowy slopes and rocky path, hence making the journey quite difficult at the pass. The climb of Chulu Far East is technically not difficult, which makes it easier for amateurs. However, there are some occasional encounters of the terrain with rocky slopes and fields of glaciers, where the group needs to be roped together to pass on such terrain to provide safety. The prior training of crossing the lines and using the rope line is given during the trip. Though the training will be provided, it is important to have an experience of walking with crampons, with effective use of an ice-ax in order to get a better understanding of the training. The clients should be fit enough to climb the rigorous journey at 5500 meters.
