Chulu West Peak climbing is adjoined with the Mini Annapurna Circuit trek. This trip is one of the popular adventure excursions in the Annapurna region of Nepal. Chulu West Peak is technical and requires a previous peak climbing experience.
Driving to Syange from Kathmandu, the trek begins enjoying the waterfalls and lower altitude forests. Passing different ethnic settlements like Pisang and Manang, you trek to Ledar and split to the Chulu West Peak. From there we proceed to the Chulu West Base Camp. The beginning is quite easy, but we walk half of the way through the Glacier. Camp I at 5100 meters. It is also relatively easy from base camp to camp I. As the altitude is growing, it’s tough to ascend in the thin air region. Camp II is set around 5530 meters. Some climbers attempt to summit from base camp, but it requires perfect fitness and excellent acclimatization. From the top, we explore the aura of the Annapurna range, including Manaslu and Lamjung Himalayas. After the outstanding moment at the top, we trek down to the base camp following the en-route and join the Thorung La pass trek.

(Note: peak climbing is really an adventurous act, so physical fitness, acclimatization and proper rest should not be undermined.

Flight Delay in Jomsom
Twin Otter is the primary mode of transport from the airstrip at Jomsom. This service is fairly dependable. Sometimes, flights may be cancelled due to mountain weather conditions or other technical problems. In such case, Adventure Club Trek will organize the alternative available road transportation to ensure you are on schedule for your international flight. The expense of the road transport will be managed from the reimbursement received from the flight ticket after the deduction of cancelation charge. So please note that there will be no refund of the flight from Jomsom to Pokhara, if the alternative road transportation is consolidated.
Note: Your safety is of the utmost concern whilst you are travelling with Adventure Club Trek. We will make every effort possible to follow the original itinerary but we reserve the right to change that itinerary if a segment of it becomes a safety issue. Certain mountain regions are remote, natural disasters can happen, weather conditions can decline and there can be illness or an injury. To avoid dangerous situations we may occasionally have to make changes to the itinerary to ensure everyone’s safety. That having been said, Adventure Club Trek will strive to provide you with the best possible trekking experience and to keep your safety our number one priority. We thank you for your understanding.
Prior to all the treks and expeditions, Adventure Club Trek hosts a pre-trip meeting in Kathmandu. The primary purpose of meeting is to provide an opportunity for individuals to ask questions about the forthcoming trek and to introduce other team members. The meeting covers topics as diverse as personal equipment and acclimatization and usually involves a hike and some skills training. Pre-trip meeting is very important in order to have a better preparation of the trekking.
