This fine trip to Chulu East peak allows us to walk through the alpine forest of rhododendron, pine, and magnolia forest. Exploring the scenic valley of Annapurna and witnessing the unique cultures, traditions, and living styles of the locals are amazing. The inclusion of the Thorang La Pass at 5416 meters is one of the major highlights of the trek. Likewise, visiting the famous Muktinath Temple is a wonderful experience. Muktinath temple is famous in the Hindu and Buddhist regions. Most importantly, the successful summit of the Chulu East peak is the greatest experience.
