Chulu West Peak Climbing takes you through Gurung villages and close to the Tibetan border into a land rich in Tibetan culture and traditions. The trail leads through sub-tropical vegetation and rhododendron forests that in spring are in full pink, white and red bloom. This region is also home to the elusive snow leopard, Himalayan Bear, monkeys and the ever-present yaks grazing in alpine meadows. This trek will satisfy your desire to experience the natural beauty and remoteness of the famous Himalayan Mountains.
Sherpa Expedition & Trekking have been providing tours for more than 40 years and take pride in their excellent reputation as a company that cares for its clients. We will go out of our way to make your journey something you will never forget.
You will be carrying all of your gear and share some of the cluster gear. Keeping your pack light is important, so choose light-weight clothing and equipment. Be sure to have a range of clothing suitable for all conditions. Sudden change of weather may require layering of clothing. Three layers will meet your needs. Avoid cotton or fabrics that do not maintain heat when cold. Comfortable durable wool (or proven fabrics) that breathe and expel sweat lends itself to an additional pleasant experience!'
We will offer complimentary water and a windproof duffle that you'll use on the trek - carried by porters. The duffle is yours to keep once at the end of the trek. You can safely leave your bag, together with your non-trekking requirements, at our office in Katmandu and collect them upon your return.
All equipment, such as base camp tents, room accessories, climbing rope, ice screws, snow bar and ice hammer is provided by Sherpa Expedition & Trekking.
Airline departure details. Please leave your airline ticket at our office in the event you need to alter your departure date.
"While you're needed to bring everything on this list, there are suitable variations that are also suitable. Many of these items can be purchased in Kathmandu from stores that cater to mountain trekking.
It is obligatory to possess smart travel insurance or emergency evacuation insurance that covers evacuation from high altitudes. It is advisable that you have cancellation insurance - just in case of an accident or for some reason, due to unforeseen circumstances, the trip is canceled.
For your personal safety and success, we recommend physical activities like running, swimming and some smaller climbs to lower peaks which incorporate climbs that involve the use of crampons. Be prepared for extreme exposure and steep drop-offs and be capable of carrying around 30lbs/15 kilos. If possible, get some experience in technical rock and mountaineering climbing to prepare for your trek and climb to Island Peak. Be familiar with using other climbing equipment, such as jumar ascenders, crampons, and ropes.
Trekking at altitude requires a lot of energy. We recommend you bring your own healthy snack foods to snack on along the trek.
In Kathmandu, you will stay at deluxe hotels and while on the trek your accommodation is in native lodges/guesthouses. At base camp your accommodation is in tented camps. All accommodation is based on a twin share basis.
In case of any high hypoxia problems, it is recommended as a primary precaution to return to a lower altitude. If the problem persists you will need to be evacuated if necessary by helicopter rescue and jeep.
During the climb, your guide will have access to current weather conditions.
Any questions can be directed to Sherpa Expedition & Trekking. We are here to ensure you are well-equipped and prepared for this fantastic adventure.
