Chu Lo west peak is a part of Chulo Massif and also a part of Manang Himal, which is included in the Damodar Himal. It is also known as the highest peak among the other Chulus in the Manang Himalayan range. The eastern limit of the peak runs from Chako Peak (6687m) by the Hunlung Khola, Nar Khola, and Phu Khola and bounds by the Marsyangdi Khola and Mesokanta La in the south. This region is regarded as one of the best for the striking mountain views of the Fishtail, Mt. Manaslu, Mt. Dhaulagiri, Mt.
