Singu Chuli Peak Climbing
Trip Code: PSC
Singu Chuli Peak (6501M, 21328 ft') is an attractive and popular mountain peak for climbing in the Annapurna region. Also known as Fluted Peak, Singu Chuli is located to the North of Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak) along a connecting ridge. Singu Chuli peak is a much stiffer proposition to climb than Tharpu Chuli, and is the highest of all the trekking peaks in the Annapurna area. The mountain can be seen from Annapurna South Base Camp but the better shape of the mountain with its pointed ridges of snow and ice is best seen from the moraines above the lodges.
There are no straight forward routes up the mountain. The normal approach is a day or two beyond Machapuchare Base Camp (the last buildings or people you are likely to see until your return), and has the remotest feel of all the trekking peaks in the area. It is often climbed after an acclimatization ascent of Tharpu Chuli. Additionally, it offers some of the most spectacular mountain scenery, pristine forest, and high altitude climbing in the world. This is a very beautiful and impressive mountain peak located in one of great mountain sanctuaries of Nepal.
More technical climbing, Terrain is quite difficult and the ridge is not straight forward, Requires ice climbing experience, a breathtaking view of entire Annapurna Sanctuary, Annapurna South, I, III and V, Baraha Sikhar, Gangapurna, Khansar Kang & Machhapuchhare
