|Chulu West (6610m)
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.
