Chulu Far East

Hi all,

I’m planning the Annapurna trail in October and climb the Chulu far East summit (or something simulair).
It will be my first time in Nepal but i climbed multiple times in the Alps. The plan is to organise it myself and don’t hire a guide or porters.
Therefore i’m looking for some partners!
I’m not fixed to a plan but if i look it can be done in ~3 weeks

  3. Hi Clement and Emile
    My name is Peter, and I am in Pokhara having just finished the AC with side trips to Bimtang, Tolicho, Ghandruk etc. I am ready for something a bit more challenging. I have a lot of mountaineering experience, but not that much climbing experience (although comfortable belaying etc.), and I do not have a tent with me on this trip.

    What are your current plans? I would love to get a 6000+m peak in the Annapurna region.


    • Hi Peter,
      We didn’t plan stuff jet but we probably leave Kathmandu on Friday. The peaks include the normal annapurna circuit and I don’t know how much fun it will to do a 2nd time. I don’t know the snow conditions but I think you definitely need crempons and an ice axe. We probably need to buy/rent a tent here. Don’t know if you have a mattress and sleeping bag?
      You can contact me by whatsapp +31612929833. Greetings, Emile
