Reviews

Chulu Far East Peak Climbing successful :) :) :)

We had Trekked Everest Base Camp, Annapurna Base Camp, Upper Mustang and Manaslu Circuit in Nepal before we summit Chulu Far East Peak. Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition has experience trekking and mountaineering leaders. We never choose other trekking agent in Nepal since we impressed by their service from our previous trips. 
It was quite difficult and adventurous to summit Chulu Far East because we did not have previous climbing experience. The successful summit credit goes to our climbing guide Dawa Sherpa. He trained and instructed us very perfectly before our summit. He paid high level of concentration to guarantee our safety and security. Thanks Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition Team!!!!!!!!!
