Trip Overview

Chulu West (6,419 m/ 21,059 ft) is one of the most beautiful mountains of Nepal and among the favorite mountains for climbers and mountaineers. It is located in the northern part of the Manang District. Chulu West Peak Climbing takes you to the beautiful mountain district, Manang of Nepal. There are twin peaks in the Chulu ridge – the Chulu West and the Chulu East (6,584 m/ 21,601 ft). These peaks are a part of the Manang Himal system which in itself is a part of the even larger Damodar Himal range. The Chako Peak (6,687 m) lies to the north of the twin Chulu peaks.

The peak is encircled by rivers like Nar, Hulung, Phu, and Marsyangdi. The Kali Gandaki valley lies to the west, not far from the Chulu peaks. There are many confusions regarding the altitude of Chulu peaks and even regarding which peaks are in fact Chulu East and West peaks. This is because of the fact that the Chulu ridge peaks at many places which are similar in altitude and lead to confusion among climbers.

The Chulu peaks provide a stunning view of the mountains like Tilicho, Annapurna, Manaslu, and Dhaulagiri. The trek starts from the mid-hills a bit further north from Besisahar, the district headquarters of the Lamjung district. Chulu West Peak Climbing walks along the banks of the gorgeous Marshyangdi river for most of the trek. The wide basin of the river is forested by trees like rhododendron, juniper, pine, fir, cedar, etc. In between these forests like wonderful villages like Chame, Manang, Kharsang, Mungji, etc.

These villages are settled by the Gurung, Tamang, Magar, and Sherpa people with the Gurung people constituting the majority of the population. These people have a unique culture and tradition which has remained intact for generations. The hospitality of the people of this region is impeccable and they consider guests as God-sent messengers. Most of the people of the region are Buddhists and we will also come across beautiful monasteries like Bodzo, Braka, and Lophelling.

The Chulu Ridge lies north of the valley of Pisang. Beyond the Chulu Peaks lies Thorong La Pass, which is one of the most adventurous high Himalayan passes in Nepal. The pass connects the district of Manang with the district of Mustang. We will enter the Kali Gandaki Valley in Mustang after crossing the Thorong La Pass. We will enter the Annapurna Sanctuary from Tatopani, which lies on the eastern mountains ridge surrounding Kali Gandaki Valley.

DETAILED ITINERARY

Day 01 Arrival in Kathmandu airport. Our Airport Representative transferred to hotel by private tourist vehicle
Max Altitude: 1345m/4412ft
Accommodation: 3 stars level hotel

We will begin our tour with a drive to Besisahar, the headquarters of the Lamjung district which is located in the western part of Nepal. We will follow the Prithvi Highway up to Dumre from where we will head north towards Besisahar. The drive up to Dumre takes place along the banks of the Trishuli river. The Trishuli river originates from the valleys in the northeast part of Manang, our trek destination, and flows into the Narayani river.

After taking a 90-degree turn from Dumre, we will drive along the banks of the Marsyangdi River, which flows to our right in the opposite direction of our travel. We will see a large Hydropower Project in the Marsyangdi River as we approach the midpoint between Dumre and Besisahar. This is the second hydropower project we meet on the Marsyangdi river, with the first one encountered a few kilometers before we reached Dumre. We will stay at a guest house in Besisahar for the night.

Day 02 Drive from Kathmandu to Besi Shahar by bus. Driving 6 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 830m/2723ft
Accommodation: Hotel/Tea house

We will begin our day with either a jeep ride or a bus ride from Besisahar. The blacktopped road ends after we drive for a short while from Besisahar. We will get introduced to the beautiful countryside with terraced fields and stone-topped houses. In between these villages lie wide stretches of forests that climb from the top of one hill to another as far as our eyes can see. The Marsyangdi river lies to our right and thunders down like a roaring lion.

There is a high suspension bridge over the Marsyangdi river just before we reach Chyamje. We will get off our couch and cross the suspension bridge. The village of Chyamje will provide us with some rest and tea. We will fill our bottles with hot water and then embark on a glorious trek towards the northern reaches of the Manang district.

The village of Tal welcomes us before we reach Dharapani. There is a beautiful waterfall near Tal where we can soak ourselves if we are interested. We will reach Dharapani after about five and a half hours of trek from Dharapani. We will rest at a guest house in Dharapani for the night.

Day 03 Drive to Chyamje by Jeep then trek to Dharapani . Driving 2:30 hours & walking 5:30 hours
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 1810m/5937ft
Accommodation: Hotel/Tea house

We will begin our trek from Dharapani after breakfast. We will continue walking along the basin of the Marsyangdi River. We will see that the forest starts to get thinner and thinner as we move upwards. The western Himalayas of Nepal bears a close resemblance to its arid and surreal northern counterpart – the Tibetan Plateau. We will come across the villages of Danaque, Bagarchap, and Timing on our way to Chame.

We will reach a wide valley in the second half of the day. The valley is encircled by mountains like Manang, Tilicho, Pisang, Himchuli, and Chulu on all sides. At the heart of the valley lies the village of Chame, which is the largest settlement in the Manang district and also its administrative head. We will explore the village of Chame and rest at a guest house there.

Day 04 Dharapani to Chame. Walking 6 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 2725m/8938ft
Accommodation: Hotel/Tea house

We will embark on a gentle trek today towards Pisang through dense green forests at the banks of the Marsyangdi River which sweeps up like a carpet to the top of the surrounding hills and gets lost out of sight into adjacent valleys. We can encounter the national bird of Nepal – Danphe – at these heights during winter. If we are traveling in spring or summer the birds usually lay nest in the far northern reaches of the region which are situated at higher altitudes.

The little village of Barthang is situated on the ridge of the mountain and provides us with an opportunity to freshen up mid-trek. We will continue our journey further towards the village of Pisang after heading up from the Barthang. As we approach Pisang, the pyramid shape of the Pisang peak starts to get prominent. Pisang is a village located at the entrance of the Pisang valley. Pisang peak stands at the center of the valley. We will also get a spectacular view of other peaks like Chulu, Tilicho, Manang, and Annapurna from Pisang village.

Day 05 Chame to Pisang . Walking 5:30 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 3190m/10464ft
Accommodation: Hotel/Tea house

We will begin our trek towards another trading center in the Manang district today – the namesake village of Manang. It is the second-largest village in Manang after Chame. The walk takes us through sporadic forests, grasslands, pastures, and arid mountainsides; the view changes so rapidly that we will be in awe of the possibilities of nature. If we are lucky then we can also encounter rare animals like the Himalayan blue sheep and the Himalayan tahr.

The Braka monastery lies on our way to Manang. It is the largest monastery in the district of Manang. Before we reach the Braka monastery we will see many Chortens, stupas, prayer flags, and mani walls on our way. Manang is a large village of closely tied houses. We will see traders and mule caravan jostling with pace along the thoroughfares of the village as we approach it. We will stay at a guest house in Manang for the night.

Day 06 Pisang to Manang. Walking 5:30 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 3500m/11480ft
Accommodation: Hotel/Tea house

We will head towards the village of Yak Kharka today. The literal meaning of the name of the village is Yak Grazing pasture and you will see many yak grazing pastures in and around Yak Kharka. We will first come across the Jarshang river which we will cross via a wooden bridge.

We will now be moving further away from the Marsyangdi river because we will now turn full 180 degrees towards the Kali Gandaki river valley in the west, which we will enter via Thorong la Pass, before going full circle of the Annapurna Massif by entering the Annapurna Sanctuary from Tatopani, en route to Ghorepani.

Yak Kharka is a small village situated on the slope of the mountain. Herds of yaks will welcome us as we move nearer to the village. We can taste exotic Himalayan cheese and other dairy products in Yak Kharka. We will get a spectacular view of the twin peaks of the Chulu by the time we reach Yak Kharka. We will rest at a guest house in Yak Kharka for the night.

Day 07 Manang to Yak Kharka . Walking 5 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 4090m/13416ft
Accommodation: Hotel/Tea house

We will head towards the Chulu Base Camp today. We take the Thorong La Pass route from Yak Kharka at first. We will come across the small village of Ledar after walking from Yak Kharka. After walking for a short while from Ledar we will come at an intersection, from where the paths to Thorong La Pass and the Chulu Base Camp get separated.

We will take the path to the Chulu Base Camp which first goes over the ridge and then climbs down a little to show the majestic view of the Chulu Peaks. The Chulu Base Camp is located at a considerably high altitude compared to Yak Kharka and thus today’s part of the trek is one of the toughest, comparable with the ascent to Chulu west itself. We will either set camp or stay at a temporary teahouse in the Base Camp for the day.

Day 08 Yak kharka to Chulu west base camp. Walking 5 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 4900m/16072ft
Accommodation: Tented camp

We will spend the day at the Chulu West Base Camp. This will help us acclimatize for the further journey because we will be entering the altitude of above 5,000 m and 6,000 m in subsequent days. The base camp provides a wonderful view of the mountains like Chulu, Manang, Tilicho, Damodar, Nilgiri, Dhaulagiri, and Annapurna.

We will learn how to use equipment like ropes, ice axes, and harnesses and take part in a team-building exercises. We will also learn how to communicate and coordinate effectively in the mountain slope. We will spend the night at the Base Camp.

Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 4900m/16072ft
Accommodation: Tented camp

Chulu High Camp is situated at 600 m higher altitude than the Chulu West Base Camp. We will take a slow but slippery walk towards the high camp following breakfast. The magnificent view of the Gangapurna peak along with gigantic peaks like Himchuli, Annapurna, and Dhaulagiri is one to behold.

We will reach the Chulu West High camp after five hours of walking from Chulu West Base Camp. We will slide into our camps early because a strong and chilly wind blows in the High Camp after sunset.

Day 10 Chulu west high camp. Approximately 5:30 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 4900m/16072ft
Accommodation: Tented camp

We will wake much before sunrise today because our target is to summit the peak before the strong winds that blow in the mountains during mid-day. The climb must be done carefully because will need to lay ropes for the most part of the journey. Our team leaders and professional helpers will lead the way for us along the mountain slopes.

After we get to the top of the Chulu West Peak, we will see another prominent peak on the same ridge towards the east, which is the Chulu East Peak. There are numerous other peaks on the same ridge, which extends its way to the mountain in the Manang range. The Manang range goes further northwards to merge with the larger Damodar system of mountains. We will get a 360-degree view of some of the highest and most beautiful mountains in the world from the top of Chulu peak. We will get back to the Chulu West Base Camp after the climb.

Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 4200m /13776ft

We will head towards the Thorong Phedi today. This part of the trek takes us up and down the same route, we walked yesterday and the day before up to the intersection from where the roads to the Chulu West Base Camp and the Thorong Phedi separate. We will once again come across the village of Ledar, this being the third time we have encountered the village.

As we head towards Thorong Phedi we will see snow covering most of the ground, with occasional patches of grassland and pastures being seen. If we are lucky then we can catch a glimpse of the Himalayan Blue Sheep in these areas. Thorong  Phedi is situated at the base of the Thorong La Camp and will be our abode for the day.

Day 12 Lather to Throung Phedi high camp. Walking 5 hours.
Meal: Breakfast/ Lunch/Dinner
Max Altitude: 4500m/14760ft

The Thorong La Pass connects the district of Mustang in the west with the district of Manang in the east. We will enter the Mustang district and head towards the village of Muktinath located on its eastern ridges. The temple of Muktinath and its famed 108 taps, bathing upon which is believed to wash away sins, is located in Muktinath.

We will reach the beautiful village of Ghorepani at the end of the trek. The village is settled by the local Gurung people and provides a great peek a boo into the history of the Gurung people.

Unique path trekking company has excellent staff on ground to make the trekking experience very enjoyable and memorable. The guide and porters go out of their way to make each and every member of the team feel safe and secured. Mr Babu the founder owner of the company is very responsive and is able to assist every member of the team with their individual needs. I would recommend engaging Unique Path for Himalaya trekking.

I like trekking with Unique Path, the guides of this company many times made my way comfortable and safe. I traveled with them to Lobuche, Mera, Island and other places solo and in the groups with my friends. Unique Path is a reliable partner and I plan to trek with them again in Langtang region this autumn.

I have used Unique Path three times and each time the team were all helpful, friendly and informative. Every aspect of our trip to Nepal was taken care of - Pick up at the airport to take us to our hotel. Next day the excitement of getting our trekking details and depending on the trip setting out with our guide and porter. My husband and I prefer to hike on our own, so we did no group options. Our itinerary was always followed exactly. When I go hiking in Nepal this company is my first point of contact. They are a great team and are totally recommended by me and my husband.

Unique Path is a great choice for anyone who wants to explore the Himalayas. My wife and I made several treks with Unique Path to Manaslu, Kangchenjunga, Tilicho Lake, and Mustang. It goes without saying, that the scenery in Nepal is stunning. Lots of opportunity to learn about the culture and religion and traditions of Nepal. The people we met along the way were engaging and wonderful. Unique Path's staff was fantastic throughout all the trips. They were very helpful, friendly and knowledgeable. They arranged everything from transportation to accommodation to food. They also provided all the necessary equipment and guidance and handled all the permit applications. I highly recommend Unique Path trekking to anyone who loves adventure and nature. These were once-in-a-lifetime experiences that I will never forget. I am available as a reference. David

Myself and 2 buddies hired Unique Path Trekking to coordinate an EBC trek back in 2014. We couldn't have been more happy with the results...Everything went flawlessly and we had the adventure of a lifetime. Babu and his staff / guides / porters were top-notch and I highly recommend them to anyone who may be reading this.

As with all treks, there will be unforeseen circumstances and you’re always beholden to nature. So you want a guide and an agency that is not only experienced enough but also sensitive and quick to changes on ground. I am very grateful for the deep experience that our guide, Dambar had. He made us feel safe and constantly had everything under control despite the weather and some early sickness some of us had. Coupled with his sharp wit and deep knowledge, this became such an enjoyable climb that was filled with priceless stories that I can’t wait to tell the kids about. The porters too were a lively bunch that ultimately became friends and we shared lots of fun moments on the mountain together. Babu ensured that our arrivals, arrangements and any administrative hassles were smooth and out of our minds so we could focus on the climb ahead. Thank you Unique Path trekking & expedition. Highly recommended for anyone who wants a great time while knowing you’re in safe hands!

We were very fortunate to have Unique Path Trekking for our EBC with 3 Himalaya passes expedition, we were so happy/satisfied with Unique Path trekking. Babu ( owner of Unique Path Trekking) is so kind, knowledgeable and mellow personality so does their staff ( all guides and porters ). We had great time during this expedition in terms of lodging/food. We had large group ( ~ 18 ppl ) and believe or not no one had any single complain of food. Their guides and porters are so knowledgeable, smart, humorous made our entire expedition lots of fun. They take care of us with positive attitudes with smiley face in entire trip. I definitely recommend Unique Path Trekking for any expedition in Himalaya ( we're looking forward to go with them in Annapurna expedition in near future ). You will very glad/happy if you choose Unique Path and Trekking.

I just returned from a wonderful hike to Everest base camp with helicopter return. I was traveling solo am so grateful to Manager Babu and guide Suresh for looking after me. It is a trip I will remember the rest of my life. We started with a half day tour of Kathmandu and then flew to lukla on the next day to begin the trek. All the arrangements were made ahead of time and the folks unique path team constantly got on the phone to make sure the logistics went smoothly. Suresh kept a moderate pace and a great sense of humor. We made good time throughout the hikes and always got to the lodges on time and in daylight with energy left for the next day. The weather also cooperated this March and we had beautiful sunny skies and gorgeous Mountain View’s throughout the trek. I really could not ask for anything more and would very much recommend unique path
