Chulu East Peak (6584m) is one of the most beautiful peaks located in the whole Himalayas. This beautiful peak lies in the Annapurna Mountain Range. Chulu East Peak Climbing is also part of the Damodar Himal. This peak is graded as a less technical peak. If you are thinking of this mountaineering adventure, we recommend you have some mountaineering experience. The knowledge about the use of mountaineering gears and equipment such as crampons, harnesses, ice ax, tying knots, handling climbing ropes, etc. is a must for this adventure.

Chulu East Peak is a difficult climb because it involves glacier crossing and a steep ascent to the summit. Most of the climbing will involve roped walking to the summit. From the summit of Chulu East, the climbers will have dramatic views of Annapurna II, III, and IV, Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak, and Manaslu.

Situated in the most beautiful Manang valley, the trekking trail for climbing this snowy peak is a fascinating route that offers the most beautiful views of surrounding peaks, as well as the lush green forests of Nepal. We will trek through the arid but the gorgeous valley of Manang, which indeed looks like a piece of heaven on earth. The journey will be the perfect platform to enjoy the outlandish landscape of Manang and its unique settlement. Our guide will lead us through the green meadows and traditional settlements. The view of majestic green hills is unforgettable. The trekking along the way to Chulu peak is adventurous and easy, but the peak climbing is tougher. We have to make use of different equipment to climb the peak. We will spend plenty of time for adaptation and acclimatization to high altitudes.

We organize Chulu East Peak at 6,584m climbing with the best guides and porters in the country. The itinerary presented below is a tailored one and it is fully customizable.

Altitude Sickness

Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at a high altitude. The negative health effect of high altitude is due to the rapid exposure to the low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include:

  • Headaches
  • Vomiting
  • Tiredness
  • Trouble Sleeping
  • Dizziness

Altitude Sickness generally referred to as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason for altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness:

  • Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS)
  • High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE)
  • High Altitude Cerebral Edema.

Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitudes slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust to a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level are comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such changes. We suggest you keep yourself hydrated, not smoke or drink the alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets, etc. to prevent yourself from Altitude Sickness.
