Chulu Far East Climbing with Tilicho Lake Trek

Chulu Far East Climbing with Tilicho Lake Trek

Overview

The Chulu Massif rises to the north of the Marshyangdi River in the Manang region forming part of the Manang Himal, part of the greater Damodar Himal. Climbing Chulu Far East 6038m is not technical and the high camp near the Col will provide a good jumping off point. Initially following the South West ridge on mixed snow and ice the summit can quickly be reached if properly acclimatised. Once off the mountain the trek takes on the challenges of the Tilicho Lake with the associated high pass crossing that eventually lead down to Jomsom.
