Lobuche peak is an attractive summit, offering a variety of existing routes and wide scope for new lines.

The normal route to Dhampus Peak follows the west-ridge, which connects Dhampus Pass(5200m), where our highest camp is placed, with the summit. For acclimatized people we have a 6-day schedule starting from the High Plains Inn in Tukuche. For unacclimatized individuals we offer various acclimatization programs, which each take an additional 4 days. An ideal combination is the trek over the 5400 meter high Thorung Pass.This expedition exceeds the 6000 meter frontier, no technical climbing skills are required. The use of crampons depends on snow conditions. This means any experience in walking on snow/ice is advisable

Chulu West Peak Climbing

Chulu West Peak Climbing | Peak climbing in nepal | Scoop.it

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, which are quite rightly included in the larger Damodar Himal, the eastern limit of which runs south from Chako and Peak 6687 meters in a north-to-south direction along the Hunlung Khola, Nar Khola and Phu Khola. To the south the Marsyangdi Khola and the Mesokanta La bound it. To the west its limit is the Kali Gandaki and to the north the Parchekya La (5,447m/17870ft).
There exists considerable confusion with regard to the name and location of the Chulu peaks and what summit actually constitutes Chulu West and Chulu East, since it is soon becomes apparent to anyone that has climbed in the range that several other summits close by, which are actually part of the Chulu massif, are not indicated on present maps of the area. For the sake of clarification, four summits can be included in the Chulu group, two of which are possible on the permit for Chulu West and two on the Chulu East permit. What is apparent is that the available trekking map is highly misleading.
The highest of these peaks, marked Chulu West (6419m/21,054ft) on the trekking maps, has a recorded altitude from at least two expeditions of nearer 6400m (20,997ft); this might more accurately be called Chulu Central. The NMA gives this an official altitude of 6,429m (21,060ft).
Many climbers are confused as to the exact location of these two peaks as the range has 4 or more summits in the immediate vicinity, which are unmarked in maps of this area. As a result many climbing parties have mistakenly climbed one of these peaks thinking it to be Chulu East or West. It usually understood that with the permit to climb the East or West peak an attempt could be made to the nearby peak as well.
A climb of one or both of these peaks combined with Nepal's most famous Arround the 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:
The obvious approach to this peak diverges from the 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.

Mera Peak Climbing

Mera Peak Climbing | Peak climbing in nepal | Scoop.it

Mera peak Climbing is considered one of the major and popular trekking peaks in Nepal. The Peak itself rises to the south of Everest. The ascent of the peak is technically straightforward, however, the heavy snow and the maze of crevasses can make the way longer to the summit.

Besides the charm of climbing Mera Peak, the trek to its base camp from Lukla is rewarding for experiencing little-visited and as yet UN spoilt region of Nepal with densely forested hillsides. There are several approaches to the base camp besides the easy and normal route, which is mentioned below. The routes crossing Amphu Labtsa (5,780m) and the Mingo La (5,871m) provide some the most adventurous trekking with spectacular scenery through remote glaciated valleys and passes. North Face Glacier from the Mera La.

The base camp can be set up at 5,300m near Mera La on the Hongu side in the moraine below the ice. From here a high camp is set at 5,800m near a rocky outcrop on the Mera Glacier. The high camp proves to be one to the most glorious viewpoints in Nepal offering the panoramic views of Kanchanjunga, Chamlang, Makalu and Baruntse sweeping around from the east and Amadablam, Cho Oyu and Kangtega to the west.

The giant faces of Everest, Lhotse and Nuptse appear in the north. There are three main summits, which are climbable without much difficulty. The south summit (6,065m) is the most accessible with the Northern Summit (6,476m), the highest, which can be reached by skirting the Central Summit (6,461m) to the north and following snow ridge to its top. Climbing the middle summit requires ascent up on steep snow and is more technical. Mera North is straightforward to climb.
