Chulu Far East Peak at 6059 meters is the obvious straightforward of the three Chulu peaks, though by no means easy. The Chulu Far East Expedition follows the route of the Annapurna Circuit Trekking and begins in the fertile low lands of Marshyandi Valley, at Besisahar and climbs along the river to reach the remote village of Chame. A grueling climb to the summit can be reached from Base camp, or a High Camp can be used (for maximizing the chances of summit success). There is a steep walk in snow up to the col at 5500 meters. Climbing Sherpas will fix ropes for the steeper sections.There is a small serac just below the summit ridge.The summit is fairly exposed. The summit view is similar to Chulu East Peak from where we witness the spectacular views of Annapaurna massifs (II, III and IV), Gangapurna, Glacier Dome, Dhaulagiri, Tilicho Peak and other snowy giants surrounding us. After ascending Chulu Far East, we descend down to Manang and from Manang, the trail rejoins the classic Annapurna Circuit trail leading to Yak Kharka, Letdar, Phedi and High camp before crossing the Thorang La Pass (5416m).
We then start descending toward Jomsom via Muktinath and Kagbeni. We take a morning flight from Jomsom and fly to Pokhara from Jomsom (a thirty-five minute flight) and spend the rest of the day soaking up the luxuries of Lakeside and Pokhara valley.
