Chulu Far East (6,059m) Climbing

chulu far eastChulu Far East peak is located in Annapurna region. It is not difficult peak. One can settle at an high camp near the col, which follow the long south-west ridge on snow and ice. It is accessed from the base camp but are quite different mountains. There are two routes to base camp and are both interesting. Then from a high camp clambering over rough, steep scree leads to a broad glaciated ridge with slopes of varying angles. On some sections fixed rope would be useful for a larger group but for smaller teams climbing alpine style with several ropes will do. Chulu Far East is quite a different proposition requiring much more commitment and alpine experience. From the col on the glaciated ridge you have to descend and cross a broken glacier then climb steep scree slopes to gain a relatively straightforward but high ridge. Setting up a second high camp (camp 1) is a necessity. While going to Chuli Far East peak you also have an opportunity to have magnificent views of Himalayas lying around such as Annapurna II, III, IV, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Pisang Peak, Chulu west and the north-side Himlung valley among others.
