Chulu Far East Expedition

The Chulu Far East peak (6,059m), located to the North of the main Annapurna Himal was first climbed in 1955 by a German Expedition. This relatively moderate peak climbing adventure passing through the tranquil landscapes, lush vegetation, and traditional cultural heritages dominated by Gurung people in the Annapurna region brings you to the apex of Chulu Far East peak. In its course, the expedition sets its base camp and then passes on to high camp to conquer the zenith of the peak.

Chulu Far East is an expedition to support Giripremi's Mt. Annapurna I expedition.

The top of the peak rewards the unrivaled views of Annapurna II, III, IV, Pisang Peak, and Chulu West Peak. Together with peak climbing, the trek also encompasses One of the World’s Highest Lake - Tilicho (4,949m).
