21 DaysChulu West climbing, easy trekking peak of Nepal
15 days Trekking and climbing in Annapurna Region
4 days in Kathmandu sightseeing, world heritage sights
Of the two Chulus (East and West), Chulu West is the higher peak. The first ascent to Chulu West in 1952 by a Japanese Expedition team. It is lies in a small valley north of Manang; off the main trail to the Thorong La. Chulu East was climbed by a German Expedition team in 1955 via the North East Ridge. Thus, it is difficult to differentiate between the two Chulus. However, the Chulu group comprises of four peaks; two in the east and two in the west. There are no technical difficulties in ascending these peaks but the progress can be slow as the slopes are vulnerable to avalanches in certain conditions. These peaks are lying together which forms an integral part of the Manang Himal which in turns is included in the Larger Damodar Himal.

"Rajan we want to extend our thanks and appreciation to you and all of Earthbound Expeditions that made our stay in Nepal such a pleasant and safe experience that will be remembered by us for a long time. Since I celebrated my 75th birthday with you on Everest Base camp trek, I am leaving my options open and I will try to stay in shape in case my son Mike needs company, he still has quite a few birthdays to celebrate and I know that he is anxious to spend some back in Nepal"..,
