Located just north of the Annapurna massif, Chulu East Peak is one of the most popular climbing peaks in the Annapurna trekking region which is first climbed in 1955 by a German explorer's expedition. Chulu East peak (6,429m) is situated high above beautiful Manang valley which offers the breathtaking views across to the Annapurna II, III and IV, Gangapurna, Tilicho Peak, Manaslu, Glacier Dome, and Dhaulagiri.
