Singu Chuli Peak Climbing - Trip Overview
A visually appealing amphitheatre of the mountains of the Annapurna region lures thousands of trekkers and climbers every year. The gigantic peaks seen from Annapurna Base Camp scare and attract you at once. One such peak, above all trekking peaks, is Singu Chuli Peak. Adjacent to Tharpu Chuli Peak, it is the best place for cheap mountain climbing.
Singu Chuli Peak, at 6,501 metres, also known as Fluted Peak, is the highest among the 6000-metre peak climbing. Also, it's the tallest among all the trekking peaks in Nepal. Thus, this Assez Difficile graded peak has a steep climb of snow and ice slopes of more than 50 degrees. Singu Chuli, due to these reasons, is best for Intermediate climbers who wish to excel in their climbing skills.
In 1957, the first Everest expedition team led by British climber Wilfrid Noyce attempted Singu Chuli climbing. He and his friend, David Cox, were highly influenced by the sheer beauty of Singu Chuli. Later, they juxtaposed this peak with the beautiful peak of India, Nanda Devi's peak. This peak is the tallest and most beautiful mountain in India. They paved the road to summit Singu Chuli peak and since then, this peak has been a go-to place for intermediate climbers.
The snow-covered, icy ridge extending to one hundred feet below the summit of Singu Chuli Peak makes the climbing arduous. Other arduous points on the climbing route have icefalls. Thus, not only physical endurance, climbing this peak requires technical abilities for climbing. Hence, commercial groups for climbing this peak comprise climbers who have experience of several 6,000 metres peaks.
From the summit of Singu Chuli Peak, Annapurna I, at 8,091 metres south face, looks spectacular. Majestic Machhapuchhre at 6,993 metres and Hiunchuli at 6,441 metres are worth the climb to the summit. Watching the sun shining over Dhaulagiri at 8,167 metres is spellbinding. The countless moraines, glaciers, and adjacent Tharpu Chuli Peak adds beauty to the landscape. You'll enjoy every moment on this expedition and at the summit. The rewarding Singu Chuli Peak climbing is worth the endurance and climbing efforts.
Singu Chuli Peak Climbing - Itinerary Overview
Singu Chuli Peak lies in the heart of Annapurna Conservation Area. We'll trek to Annapurna Base Camp at 4,130 metres via Machhapuchhre Base Camp at 3,700 metres to reach its base camp.
We'll drive to Pokhara and start our trek to Ghandruk. Ghandruk is an alluring Gurung settlement in the Annapurna region. From Ghandruk, we'll trek to Chhomorong at 2,170 metres, Dobhan at 2,600 metres, and Machhapuchhre Base Camp. From MBC, we'll hike to ABC before making our way to Singu Chuli Base Camp.
At Singu Chuli Base Camp, we'll set our tents for overnight. On the next day, our climbing guides will give you training and briefing on summit push and how to follow the guidance. Since this peak is AD grade, we'll make our climb gradual to High Camp and Camp 1 each day. Doing so will make you adapt to the altitude and learn the climbing skills while making the ascent.
Early morning next day will be a summit push from Camp I. The sunrise on the horizon and the glittering colours over the mountains look spectacular as we ascend further to the Singu Chuli summit. The 100 feet below the summit ridge is a technical section as it is an icy ridge covered in snow. So, we'll climb at a steady pace, following the instructions of the climbing guide. Using an ice axe, crampons, and a fixed-line, we'll hike to the summit of Singu Chuli peak. The mesmerising view of Annapurna I, II, Himlung, Damodar, Tharpu Peak, and Dhaulagiri gives the eternal calm.
We'll descend to base camp on the same day, and sleep overnight there. We'll hike down to MBC, Bamboo, JHinu Danda, Nayapul, Pokhara, and Kathmandu on the following days.

Singu Chuli Peak Climbing - Fitness and Difficulties
Singu Chuli Peak is a technical peak among the highest climbing peaks below 6,000 metres. The AD grade of this peak states that the steep ridges are 50 degrees. The ice and snow-covered section near the summit is difficult for novice climbers to cross. Thus, those who have previous 6000 metres of peak climbing experience can climb this peak. This peak is not for first-time climbers.
Also, besides climbing techniques, you must have a good physical condition. The tiring hiking days and climbing days demand a certain level of endurance. We recommend you to go hiking, practice cardio exercises, and take part in mini-marathons as preparations for this expedition. You can reach the summit and complete this trip in good physical shape and a decent alpine course.
