The Chulu – east peak rise above the dry, arid Manang valley of Nepal. This remote valley lies in the rain shadow of the massive Annapurna Himal. We begin our approach by following the Marsyandgi Khola through a variety of landscapes and cultures. From the subtropical land of the Gurung people to the high Tibetan like region of the Manang people. Our route up Pisang Peak rises in an elegant are of the S.W. face to a steep, icy ridge. The route is not technically difficult but demands solid snow climbing skills and excellent physical conditioning. Following our ascent of Pisang we trek further up valley to the district head quarters of Manang. A long day takes us to base camp. After a rest day we precede to high camp on a high col. Our route to the summit follows the exposed N.E. ridge on snow and ice with outstanding views of the Annapurna and Manaslu to the East. A quick descent takes us back to Ogre where we take a flight to Pokhara then to Kathmandu.
This climbing combines all the best elements of a Himalayan expedition. While the trip is strenuous and demands that each participant be well versed in alpine snow climbing skills, it is an excellent way to experience the culture of Nepal and ascend two Himalayan peaks in the safest possible way.

Mission Eco Trek is professionals at operating at high-altitude. Each trip we run has a realistic acclimatization programme. Our entire adventure trips are designed to allow gradual height gain, spread over a number of days. High altitude is not predictable sickness, so there is no way of predicting who will suffer from altitude but, for the vast majority of people, a slow ascent to height will produce minimal effects. We can provide 'Gamow Bag' as a precautionary measure as per your request on renting basis. Acclimatizing takes time and there are no safe shortcuts. All trips to altitudes in excess of 3,000 meters carry medicines essential to the treatment of altitude sickness, and our leaders, guides and staffs are well trained to administer them and to know the symptoms.
