Chulu East Peak Expedition

CHULU EAST PEAK (6584m)
The second highest trekking peak of Manang Region

Chulu East (6584m/21601ft) was first climbed in 1955 by a German expedition via the North-East ridge. The peak of Chulu East and West forms an integral part of the Manang Himal, which are included in the larger Damodar Himal. Chulu East lies South-East of Chulu West and is a comparatively lower peak. Another peak two miles away, though separated from Chulu East by a col, which is 5608m/18400ft, is often mistakenly climbed as Chulu East.
