Chulu West Peak lies in Manang district in the Annapurna Region. West Chulu, East Chulu and Central Chulu these peaks are part of the Manang Himal, also these three peaks are quite rightly included in the larger Damodar Himal. the eastern part limit to connect with south from Chako and Peak 6687 meters in a north to south direction along with Hulung Khola, Nar Khola and Phu Khola. Chulu West Peak bounds Marsyangdi River in the south and Mesokanta La Pass. In the west it limits to Kali Gandaki and Pachekya La (5,447m) in the northern part.
Actually there is some confusion with regard to name and location of Chulu Peaks. Which means Chulu peak has two names like as Chulu West Peak. After climbing several times clolse to this Peaks, it apparents that these peaks are parts of Chulu massif but which are not indicated on present maps. For the sake of clarification, four summits are included in the Chulu group, two peaks are included on the permit for Chulu West and two on the Chulu East permit.
Then to recognize Peaks, the highest one is marked as a Chulu West (6419m/21,054ft) on the trekking maps, another one is called Central Chulu Peak which altitude is scaled 6400m (20,997ft); The NMA gives this an official altitude of 6,429m (21,060ft).
Chulu West Peak climbing route is begins from small Manang Valley which seprates from way to Thorong Pass. This peak is higher than Chulu East. Chulu West Peak Climbing journey begins from Kathmandu to Besisahar by bus and walking on foot for few days trekking to Manang Valley. Then it will be began for peak climbing after crossing Manang Valley.
Chulu West Peak is more famous and popular for climbing than other peaks because the route easy to recognize because of way to the Annapurna Circuit Trekking. For this climbing way, Annapurna trek make up for one of the most spectacular Himalayan trekking and climbing outings. Allow about 25 to 30 days to complete this climb and trek.
Chulu West Peak climbing route is obvious that it separates from main trail to the Thorung La pass past the village of Manang and Base Camp is established in a small valley to the North. From base camp the route follows a subsidery Northwest ridge that leads up to the main peak. An attempt to the peak and return has been done in a single day, as setting camp up on the slope above base camp is not easy. An attempt of Chulu Central peak (6,429m/21,060ft) just east of Chulu West.
