Annapurna Circuit with Chulu Far East

Beyond the Annapurna Himalaya, amongst a group of peaks known as the Manang Himal, the eminently climbable Chulu Far East (6059m) boasts a superb summit panorama that includes all of the Annapurnas, as well as a host of little-known peaks in Tibet. Our approach to the mountain follows the trek of the classic Annapurna Circuit for 3 days before climbing to a basecamp above the villages of Gyaru and Ngawa. We go on to establish a high camp on the south-west ridge of Chulu Far East and we make our ascent via straightforward snow-slopes. Descending to Manang in the deep cleft of the Marsyangdi Valley, the second part of this fantastic climbing holiday is our 6-day trek out to Jomsom, via the stunning Tilicho Lake and the relatively rarely-crossed Tilicho La (5260m). Close to the Annapurna Circuit, this expedition manages; nevertheless, to take you well off the beaten track and to provide an unforgettable trekking and climbing holiday.
