Of the two Chulus (East and West), Chulu West is the higher peak. The first ascent to Chulu West in 1952 by a Japanese Expedition team. It lies in a small valley north of Manang; off the main trail to the Thorong La. Chulu East was climbed by a German Expedition team in 1955 via the North East Ridge. Thus, it is difficult to differentiate between the two Chulus. However, the Chulu group comprises of four peaks; two in the east and two in the west. There are no technical difficulties in ascending these peaks but the progress can be slow as the slopes are vulnerable to avalanches in certain conditions. These peaks are lying together which forms an integral part of the Manang Himal which in turns is included in the Larger Damodar Himal.
