Trip Overview

Chulu East Peak Climbing is one of the easier peak climbing trips in the beautiful Annapurna region of Nepal. This was first ascended by the German Expedition team in 1995. Climbing this moderate peak is a relatively easy climbing adventure. It passes through a beautiful landscape with lush vegetation with traditional and cultural heritage dominated by Gurung people. This trip offers you a taste of everything that the Himalayas have to offer. The climb is straightforward and has a rewarding experience to view the Annapurna mountain range. There are two routes to base camp and both are interesting.

Chulu East Peak Climbing starts from Syange after some hour’s drive from Kathmandu valley. The expedition sets its base camp and then passes on the high camp to conquer the zenith of peak climbing. We walk through a narrow ascending trail surrounded by the dense forest to reach upper Pisang over a few days. We then follow the route, climbing to the summit of this peak climbing which is rock-strewn, icy, and almost vertical. The trip also encompasses the world’s highest Lake Tilicho lake. It holds a special position among Hindu followers.

This climbing trip is organized to give you both an exhilarating time as well as a wonderful trekking experience. We will have an opportunity to see wonderful views of Mt Annapurna I, II, IV, Dhaulagiri, and the other Himalayas on this route. There is no technical difficulty in ascending this peak but the progress can be slow as the slopes. The panorama even stretched beyond the Himalayas across the plains of Tibet to the north. This Trekking Peak Climbing is a rewarding experience as it provides glorious views of Nepal. The Autumn and spring season is the best season for peak climbing on this route.

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Rabin Gurung

It was a trip we will always remember and be proud of. You need not worry about anything since Dhan (Sameer Gurung) and their group will arrange everything (i.e. Hotel, Food, transportation, a plane ticket to Lukla, etc.). The trekking was long and arduous yet our guide was very accommodating and conscious of us. He knows the place very well and will gladly tell you stories about it along the way. The whole trek was truly breathtaking. You won’t regret this trip! (Note: Try to reach viewing deck areas before sunrise and watch as the sun makes everything look spectacular!☺)

Annapurna Circuit Trek with Dhansingh Gurung

Dhansingh guided me on compressed Annapurna Circuit trek late last year and the experience far exceeded my expectations. Having someone who knew the route, language, local culture, weather conditions and wildlife intimately enabled me to relax and get the most from my trip. Nothing was too much trouble and I felt extremely well looked after and safe from the moment I arrived in Nepal right up until I left. I couldn’t recommend more highly, very professional service.

Annapurna Base Camp Trek with Dhansingh

We had a wonderful time on our trek. We did the 8 day ABC trek. The route is beautiful with lots of stunning vistas. Our guide Dhansingh was knowledgable and friendly and really looked after us. I would be happy to recommend this tour to anyone thinking of tackling ABC.

Everest Gokyo & Renjola Pass with Dhansigh

I first met Dhansingh in May of 2016 when we completed the Renjo La pass. I’ve now returned this summer of ’17 to explore with Dhansingh some areas of Annapurna. Dhansingh’s competency is the first rate, and he a very pleasant person with whom to spend time. I highly recommend Everest Trekking Routes.
