Chulu West Peak (6,419m) is no doubt popular, yet a challenging peak for climbing situated in a little valley, which lies to the north of Manang in the Annapurna region. This is one of the peaks which can be seen from all the major trails of the Annapurna Thorung La-Pass. This peak offers you an exciting adventurous breathtaking view of Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Manaslu and Tilicho Peak. Chulu West Peak climbing offers superb Himalayan views of the Annapurna region, the beautiful vast landscapes and ethnic cultures and traditions.
Chulu West Peak climbing journey begins from Besisahar after a 5 to 6 hours drive from Kathmandu and reach as far as Pisang village. From here the trail leads us steadily straight into the Manang valley, one of the highest valleys of the world situated at an altitude of 5000m. Once we achieve this initial target of climbing this valley, we acclimatize and in between our rest, we take some time to explore the Manang valley and try to get an insight into the lifestyle, culture, tradition of the ethnic groups and tribes inhabiting this exotic region. From Manang valley the route heads north to lead into the Chulu West Base Camp. The gigantic views of the mountains and landscapes include the Manaslu massif and Annapurna massifs are very attractive while trekking to Chulu West Peak and returning from top. This memorable adventure slowly comes to an end in Jomsom, a place providing ample opportunities to explore the diverse flora and fauna all along the trekking trail. From Jomsom we fly back to Pokhara and then to Kathmandu.
Chulu West Peak can be attempted by individuals having a moderate level of fitness. Technically less challenging attracts large numbers of visitors every year to make and attempt and reach out for the summit. We have the best designed itineraries to suit this adventurous peak climbing journey according to the interest and time factor. An amazing life time experience while trekking in Nepal.

Annapurna Circuit in May
it was great while we were there together on the mountains etc. All in the same boat and as they say that sinking feeling but we were adamant and were keen on not letting the ship drown and carried on and persevered and eventually we saw light at the end of the tunnel - literally - we reached muktinath -a very holy place for buddhists and hindus alike !!!

Experienced and extremely knowledgeable guide about trekking
We completed the Everest Base Camp in December 2008 with Prem and we had an incredible time. When you have no previous serious trekking experience and no experience in Nepal, travelling with the right guide is the single most important element of your trip and we have to say we felt very lucky.

Truly memorable trip
This was our second trek with the Mountain Hawk team and it was just as well organised and fun as the first. We were in regular contact with Prem via telephone and skype during the build up to our trek.

Truly unforgettable experience !
Nepal is a beautiful country with diverse and stunning scenery. The culture in the cities is unmissable, with a really friendly and spiritual atmosphere. Trekking into the mountains gives a sense of sereneness and tranquility, surrounded by breathtaking panoramic views.
