Chulu East Peak Climbing is popular trekking peak climbing package in Annapurna Region. The Chulu East (6564m) located north of Annapurna massif presents a very attractive peak climbing objective for trekkers doing Annapurna Circuit either full version or half version to Manang. It can be an exciting extension to trekking and an accessible introduction to snow climbing experience for climbers with a degree of technical ability converting the trek in to a safe but exciting climbing adventure.

Technically it is a scramble at a reasonably high elevation allowing easy way to achieve the elevation goal of 6000m. The scramble is on an average slope of 40deg with short sections of 50deg on rock and snow with good protection throughout without any significant climbing objective danger. The technical part of the climb is the section of glacier between a notch below Far East Chulu and the Northeast shoulder of East Chulu. Once on the Northeast ridge the climb is easy and well protected on a relatively wide ridge. The climbing route from High Camp to the summit is very long hence the climb is strenuous.
