One more well-known climbing mountain in the Annapurna region is the Chulu West Peak. The highest peak in the area, Chulu West located to the north of Annapurna above the Manang Valley. A Japanese expedition team made the first ascent of Chulu West in 1952. North of Manang, off the main trail to the Thorang La pass, is the location of the Chulu west peak base camp.

Alliance Adventure has planned the trek to west Chulu so that, in addition to giving participants a chance to gain first-hand climbing experience, it will also give them a chance to see some of the most beautiful Himalayan peaks nearby in Annapurna region, including Annapurna II, III, IV, Gangapurna, Manaslu, Pisang Peak, Chulu East, and the east-side Himlung Valley, among others. The territories that make up Chulu are surrounded by a number of peaks. Since the group consists of four peaks, two to the east and two to the west, it can be challenging to distinguish between the two trekking Chulus (East and West).

Chulu West may also be known as Chulu Central, which would just cause more confusion. The tallest mountain is Chulu West, which is located above the Manang Valley to the north of Annapurna. Off the main trail to the Thorang La, in a little valley to the north of Manang, is where the climb's Base Camp is located. We travel from Chauri Lather up a rocky, treacherous trail to a base camp at 4,800 meters. From there, we ascend stony, steep terrain to a high camp at a height of about 5300m. The peak can be reached without any technical difficulty, although it can take some time because the slopes can avalanche under certain circumstances.

The eight-hour drive from Kathmandu to Besishahar, Bulbule marks the start of the trip to this mountain. From there, you will ascend to Chame, Pisang, pass Yak Kharka, proceed to base camp, and ultimately arrive at Chulu West, where you will pitch your tent and acclimate. Once we are prepared, you go ahead and ascend the mountain after which you will descend from Manang Valley and travel to Yak Kharka, the Thorong La Pass, Muktinath, Jomsom, and ultimately Pokhara.



Day 1: Touch down at Kathmandu's Tribhuwan International Airport (TIA) (1300m).

Welcome to Mountain Guide Trek of Nepal and a hearty Namaste. A Mountain guide Treks representative will welcome you when you arrive (MGT). Pick up your bags and look for our representative at the arrival gate with a Mountain Guide Treks and Expedition with Group leader's name display board after finishing your customs formalities (Visa, etc.). After that, you will be taken to the hotel. If time permits, you will visit the MGT office after check-in to meet your trekking guide, other participants, and make any last-minute preparations for the trip. Everything depends on when you arrive. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel)

Day 2: Sightseeing and trek preparation in Kathmandu.

A day of training in rock climbing is typically required before beginning a hike, so you will be driven to Balaju, a natural rock climbing location 3 km from Thamel. We will provide fantastic possibilities for you to develop your physical fitness while learning how to use climbing tools such as a rope, harness, ice axe, and crampons. As an alternative, we will begin a half-day sightseeing tour with our knowledgeable tour guide to some of Kathmandu's most important historical and religious sites. Some of these locations, including Durbar Square, the revered Pashupati Nath Hindu temple, the well-known "Monkey Temple" (Swayambunath), and the Buddhist shrine (Buddha Nath), one of the biggest stupas in the world, are listed as World Heritage Historic Sites. After returning from the tour, our trek guide and other team members will hold a pre-trip meeting. Mountain Guide Journey will give you a briefing on your trek and give us the chance to talk about any potential problems with our future excursion. The remaining time can be spent exploring Thamel and shopping for supplies and other necessities. (BB base, overnight stay at a luxury hotel).

Day 03: Drive from Kathmandu to Bhulbule (850m) 7-8 hrs.

After breakfast this morning, we will begin our trips by driving through the picturesque Nepalese countryside and river views to reach Bhulbule (850m), a rural hill on the path of Annapurna and Manasalu. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp)

Day 04: Trek Bhulbule to Jagat (1330m) 7-8 hrs.

After breakfast, we prepare for our journey, dress appropriately (see below), and set out on the route where a new road is being built that will go to the settlement of Manang. In order to get to Bahundanda (1310 m), where we stop for lunch, we follow the Marsyangdi River, crossing a few local wooden and suspension bridges, passing waterfalls, several uphill and downhill hill sections, across rice paddies, and through subtropical forest. From there, we continue our descent through amphitheater-shaped rice terraces, along a steep vertical cliff, lush forests, and some culturally interesting villages. After crossing the Mayshyangdi River suspension bridge, we begin to slowly climb the hill and meet Jagat. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp).

Day 05: Trek Jagat to Dharapani (2160m) 6-7 hrs.

After breakfast, we will have to trek for one and a half hours down a difficult trail to reach Chamje village, a little community with a primary school that is surrounded by bamboo plants. After leaving Chamje, our journey continues with a suspension bridge spanning the Marshyangdi River, where you will view a waterfall, steep terrain, and trails. We next enter the Manang district immediately before the Tal hamlet. This picturesque settlement has a view of a waterfall and is located beside a river. You will cross the river, continue your journey through the cliff path directly above the river, and eventually arrive at our overnight camp in the village of Dharapani.

Day 6: Dharapani to Chame Trek (2670m) 5-6 hours.

Bagarchhap is a one-hour trek from Dharapani. From this lovely hamlet, you may get a close-up glimpse of Mt. Annapurna II. Remember to gaze up, though, as you will experience some breathtaking views of the highest Himalayan peaks today as you navigate some steep forested terrain and landslides. The day before you arrive in Chame, you will pass through a few traditional Tibetan villages (2670m). One of the lovely Himalayan towns, Chame is the district capital of Manang and offers close-up views of Mt. Lamjung and Annapurna II. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp)

Day 07: Chame to Pisang (3200m) 6-7 hrs Trek.

Another enjoyable stroll via a winding, steep road that runs through a very deep pine forest and along the riverbank will bring you to the settlement of Bratang, where you may stop for tea in an apple garden. After passing this point, we proceed via steep trails and a path through a forest before climbing for an hour to reach Dhukur Pokhari, where we will have lunch. We will get our first look at Pisang Peak and the neighboring Himalayan mountains from this small village. We will walk for an hour to reach Pisang village after lunch. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp).

Day 8: Pisang to Manang Trek (3540m) 5-6 hours.

Today, we go into the dry upper reaches of the Manang district, which the Annapurna Range has isolated from the full force of the monsoon. For a portion of the year, the locals in this area herd the yaks and grow crops. Additionally, they still benefit from exclusive trading privileges acquired in 1784. After leaving Pisang, we can choose between routes that run to the north and south of the Marsyangdi River, which reunite at Mungji. Although there are better views on the trail that follows the northern bank of the river, the southern route by Hongde, with its airfield (3325m), entails less climbing than the northern route via Ghyaru. The trek leads from Mungji to adjacent Manang after passing through the charming but largely concealed settlement of Bryanga (3475m) (3540m). (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp).

Day 09: Day for Manang village's acclimatization (3540m).

We are acclimatizing in Manang today. The optimum time to gain altitude is during the day, so we spend the entire day taking lovely day hikes and admiring the breathtaking views of the hamlet. There are numerous places to explore around. The settlement of roughly 500 flat-roofed homes is charming and is surrounded by some breathtaking scenery, including the Grand Barrier, Tilicho (7132m), Annapurna III (7555m), and Annapurna II (all of which are to the west), as well as Chulu West (6583m) and Chulu East (6059m) to the north. We go back to our lodging at the end of the day and get some rest. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp).

Day 10: Trek Manang to Leather (4200m) 5-6 hours.

We left the trail to Tilicho Lake on the left corner and continued a short climb up to Yak Kharka, a little community situated at 4110m, after a magnificent exploration of Manang village this morning. We will gradually ascend towards a little hill, and then the path turns more right behind the hill, bringing us to Yak Kharka for lunch and Leather, which we will reach after another hour of walking. Reminder: At some point, you might trek up a small hill for a good view of the mountains nearby and to have a good look at Chulu. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp).

Day 11: Trek Leather to Chulu West Base Camp (4400m) 5-6 hours.

After breakfast, we begin our actual expedition day by ascending to Base Camp with all of our crews to the northern valley of Leader. From the picturesque ridge, we go through a grassy area till we arrive at base camp. Â (Overnight at tented camp on full board basis)

Day 12: Base Camp acclimatization day.

One day of acclimatization is necessary before we ascend to Chulu West. On this day, you can go on local explorations and practice climbing at base camp while your guide gives you a technique lesson and a rundown of the climbing procedures. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)

Day 13 : High Camp to Base Camp (4685m) 3-4 hrs.

After breakfast today, we'll pack up everything and go to high camp for the night. We spent 3–4 hours on rocky routes to reach to high camp, where we set up camp. It was absolutely difficult to breathe the entire time. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)

Day 14: Spend 10–11 hours ascending Chulu West Peak (6419m) before returning to Base Camp (4400m).

Our scheduled climbing guide will see the circumstances and risk condition as they awaken you in the early morning at approximately 2:00 am and peak up gears and breakfast. If the weather is fine, we begin the ascent to the summit. You will have enough time to gaze around the Himalayan region, take successful images, and enjoy the surrounding views of the Annapurna, Gangapurna, Tilicho, Throng Peak, Chulu East, as well as several Tibetan mountain ranges and the valley below Manang and Throng Top. You will descend to base camp once you have reached the top. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)

Day 15: Set aside this day in case of emergency.

This day is set aside for unanticipated circumstances, such as inclement weather, climber illness, or other undiscovered conditions. If an unusual event arises, we can use today to climb. If we don't require this day, we can utilize it to spend another night in Kagbeni village, which serves as the entrance to upper Mustang. . (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp)

Day 16: Five to six hours' trek from Chulu West Base Camp to Leather.

We stroll back to Leader today, and the rest of the time is yours to unwind (Overnight at tented camp on a full board basis)

Day 17: Leather/Yak Kharka to high camp at Thorong La (4800m) 6-7 hrs.

You travel to the foot of the pass, Throng Phedi, for lunch on another brief day while high above. Despite being crowded, this modest town serves the needs of climbers and trekkers. It is located at the base of the Throng la, from which the routes continue to ascend. We walk for an hour to reach a high camp after having lunch here. (Full board provided while staying the night at a tented camp).

Day 18: 7-8 hours from High Camp to Muktinath (3800m) across the Thorong La passes.

Get up early, have a small breakfast, and then pack your bags while drinking hot tea. With frequent stops along the way, we will begin our ascent to Throng Top. Finally arrives at Throng La, where you can take your wonderful photo but are unable to stay for long owing to the wind. You will never forget the fantastic experience you had at the Throng La pass (5416m). Snow and altitude, however, can be the cause of the issue. The high Himalayan landscapes that can be seen from both the trail and the pass itself are breathtaking. Start a protracted descent to another Annapurna region, arriving at Muktinath.

Day 19: Muktinath to Jomsom trek (2500m) 5-6 hours.

We awaken this morning to the wonderful sounds of temple bells and travel to the well-known pilgrimage site at the Muktinath Temple. After breakfast, getting to Kagbeni requires only a short hike. All the way to Kagbeni, the trail falls through a striking, parched terrain. One must cross the Kaligandaki River on either side to get to Kagbeni. The river's left fork carries on to Kagbeni. Perhaps Kagbeni will be your lunch destination. We arrive in Jomsom, a sizable city that serves as the Mustang region's administrative center, after a few hours of traveling from Kagbeni. It is a significant settlement in the Kaligandaki area connecting the ancient Trans-Himalayan Salt Trade route to Tibet and has an airport right above the Kaligandaki River. (Full-board accommodation at a tea house or tented camp)

Day 20: Eight and twenty minutes by flight from Jomsom to Pokhara.

This morning, we prepare for the thrilling alpine scenery flight to Pokhara by packing our baggage. Our opportunity to experience the best views of the surrounding Annapurna & Dhaulagiri Himalayan range is provided by the flight's passage between two high peaks, Mt. Annapurna (8091m) and Mt. Dhaulagiri (8167m). We have a full day to experience Pokhara's natural beauty. Your tour guide will take you on a sightseeing tour of the Pokhara valley and the city's top attractions. The most significant and well-known Hindu temple in Pokhara is Bindabashini, which is a place of pilgrimage. A two-hour boat ride through Phewa Lake will take you to the Barahi temple, which is located on an island in the lake, as well as other well-known locations including David Fall and Ghupteshower Cave. (BB base, one night at a luxury hotel)

Day 21: Drive 6-7 hours or fly 25 minutes from Pokhara to Kathmandu.

Up until a few hours prior to your flight, you may choose an afternoon flight to Kathmandu; alternatively, you might take an optional scenic tour of Pokhara or engage in action-packed pursuits like paragliding or boat riding. Alternatively, if you'd prefer to go by bus, we'll make arrangements for a ticket in a tourist bus with a riverside seat and have you depart from Pokhara at 7:30 am. The seats on the left side of vehicles are good for taking in the view; the road passes by the Trisuli River, where many people may be seen floating down it. You will arrive in Kathmandu (around Thamel) after 6–7 hours and be transferred to your accommodation. The day is free for you to relax, go shopping if you need to, or see any things you missed on your first day in Kathmandu. To celebrate the successful completion of the Chulu West Peak Climb, don't forget that we will be throwing a magnificent celebration "Farewell supper" with Mountain Guide Trek staffs at a typical Nepalese restaurant!

Day 22: Goodbye, pal (Final departure to your onward destination).

There is nothing to do but exchange emails with travel partners and organize the images as today is the last day in Nepal for this trip; you are bidding goodbye to the mountains as your tour in Nepal comes to an end today. You can go shopping or go sightseeing if you have more time. Mountain Guide Treks will send a representative to pick you up at the airport around three hours prior to the flight's planned departure time. (BB base, one night at a luxury hotel).
