Chulu West Peak

Chulu west (6610M) is the higher of the two Chulus and has a higher recorded altitude by at least two expeditions that have ascended it. This peak was first climbed in 1952 by a Japanese expedition. Ascents to this peak are best made from a base camp in a small valley north of Manang, situated off the mail trail to the Thorong-La. From here one gets to see some of the best views of the peaks. There is considerable debate in regard to the name and location of the Chulu peak, for those who have climbed this area, it is a known fact that several other summit close by, which are actually part of the Chulu massive, are not indicated on maps. Therefore it is hard to distinguish between the two Chulu, however, for the sake of charity; four summits can be included in the Chulu group. Two each for west and East, Though Chulu west could also possibly be called Chulu central. Although there really is not any technical difficulty on this section, in soft snow however, progress could be slow and difficult, as the slopes are prone to "Avalanche" in certain conditions.

Mera Peak Climbing

 

Mera peak (6476M) officially the highest of Nepal's permitted trekking peaks rises to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas. The first ascent on Mera was made in May 1953 and the route taken then, has now become the standard route. There are many routes to Mera peak, none of them easy. Some of the route traverses through difficult passes, and the arduous climb then becomes a true mountaineering experience. The end however, is worth all the effort, as Mera is definitely on of the finest viewpoints in Nepal.
