In the dream of Himalaya Caravan Adventure we aim to provide something that can fulfill the dream of every amateur climber, that is why we provide you with Chulu West peak climb, this is a classical and sensational Annapurna circuit. This is a thrilling and exhilarating Himalayan summit that does not fall short of an experience of a lifetime, spectacular views of the Himalayas and Tibet can be witnessed and embodied in the fullest sense possible. The Chula trekking and peak climbing experience is one of the challenging peaks amongst the trekking peaks in Nepal that requires a greater commitment and previous trekking or climbing experience. Due to the nature of this climb you will be fully briefed and instructed by our experienced climbing guide on the use of crampons, an ice axe and ropes etc. This will give you the required skills, experience and confidence to ensure you have the best possible chance to reach and summit the peak. This is the perfect opportunity to advance your experience and take a step further or to embrace your already gained experience in the aid of technical growth.The North-West Ridge: Going beyond the yak pastures you will trek up a ridge which leads into a spectacular hidden valley, where it is possible to set up base camp. From this camp there is a steep ascend on a subsidiary ridge that is attached to the main ridge. You will need to ascend a snow slope for 200m to the base of a band of rock at an altitude of 5100m and is an ideal site for a possible high camp. Climbing the band of rock towards the North-West shoulder of Chulu West is somewhat difficult, this will bring you to an altitude of 5450m where another camp can be established or an alternative camp can be made further up on a snow slope at 5530m. Throughout the ascent, ropes will be attached to the rock band and when the plateau is reached you will progress forward on an increasingly narrowing ridge to the summit at 6250m. The decent takes the same route.So if you have been looking to increase your climbing and trekking experience towards the next level or you want a more technically challenging route this is for you. Do not hesitate to ask any questions regarding the Chulu West peak climb or any other climb. We will be able to happily answer any of your questions.
