Singu Chuli Peak Expedition (6,501m), the third-highest trekking peak of Nepal among all, is also known as Fluted Peak. This attractive mountain lies in the Annapurna Sanctuary. This adorable peak adjoins with Tharpu Chuli and lies across Hiunchuli. The first ascent of this peak was made in 1957 by Wilf Noyce and David Cox from North-East Face.
Trekking towards the Singu Chuli Peak provides you with a great chance to explore the marvellous views of the stunning Himalayas like Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna II (7,937m), Hiunchuli (6,441m), Machhapuchhre (6,993m) and many other mountains across the range. Besides that, you can have real-life experience of culture and lifestyle of the people of the Annapurna Region along with many endangered wildlife habitats like Red Panda, Spotted Deer, Musk Deer, and Wild Yaks, etc. Being one of the difficult and technically challenging Peaks, it requires sound technical climbing skills and good physique of an individual.
Singu Chuli Peak climbing is suggested to people who have previous alpine, ice climbing, and mountaineering experience. This trek is highly recommended for majestic mountain views and experience of great cultural diversity among the local people. Climbers need to have strong physical and mental fitness for this expedition because of unpredictable weather change, altitude sickness, and other technical difficulties.
The peak is extremely technical and difficult to climb as well as the trekking trail is a stone falling prone area due to which you need to be careful all the time. Singu Chuli can be approached from several routes: North-East face. Majestic views of Lamjung ranges, Annapurna ranges, terrace fields, and pleasing villagers are a significant part of the trek.
You need to be well acclimatized before going for the expedition so there will be less chance of altitude sickness. Due to global warming landslides occurs numerous time resulting change in the route most of the time. Mostly South-West ridge is used which connects with the Tented Peak also called as Tharpu Chuli. You need an experienced climbing guide with you otherwise the peak permit will not be issued.
Singu Chuli Expedition begins from Kathmandu to Pokhara. From Pokhara, we will move towards Nayapul and start trekking to Tikhedhunga for about five hours. We trek to Ghorepani Poonhill for amazing sunrise/sunset view at 3,210m. Then after will steadily move towards Annapurna Base Camp via Machhapuchhre Base Camp. We take a rest day at Annapurna Base Camp and then we continue to trek to Tharpu Chuli Base Camp. During our acclimatization day, we will learn several technical skills. After that, we move towards Singu Chuli Base camp then slowly towards High camp.
Singu Chuli Peak Climbing is much stiffer than Tented Peak and is highest of all the trekking peaks of that region. The route is not straight forward and you have to get past various ice slopes, steep rocks, and other technical sections. Once you are at the top you will forget all your tiredness and pain after the tantalizing views of the Himalayas.
Singu Chuli trekking is nothing less than a real mountain climbing. It is your chance to be familiar with a Himalayan peak and the experience will stay with you forever. So, please contact Nepal Guide Trek and Expedition right ahead for all the exciting details about this most admirable Expedition.

Things You Should Know?
From the moment, I and my friend bumped into D.B. at the airport, We felt these guys were a safe bet. I had previous experience of trekking or Nepal. But Prakash listened to my plans and put together a great trip. The price was very reasonable, and he managed to get me a guide, Dawa Sherpa, who was happy to carry my pack. He was a great guy to walk with for 27 days, nothing was ever a problem, he always gives me best price for lodging, food, beer + cigarette and other essentials. Whenever I wanted to rest, we rested, when I wanted to push onto the near village, sometimes in the dark, we would. He didn’t complain once. Ever when I suggested we climb Singu Chuli Peak (6501m.) with no climbing experience, he made it happen, using his own experience and Savoy and contacts, We got a permit and equipment from clung, and a second guide, with excellent experience- and up we went. It was the perfect end to a superb trip, huge amount of fun, great exercise, great value. You should use this company, Nepal Guide Treks, they will listen to you and you can trust them on price, knowledge, experience, and general ease + pleasantness to deal with.
Have fun & all the best.
Just returned back to home with lots of wonderful memories from Nepal to climbing Singu Chuli in April 2017. That was the great experience and full of wonderful memory in my head but it was an unbelievable technical mountain. At last part, it has icy steep climbing made me cry. We had a good guide Dendi Sherpa who had enough technical skill climbing. From the top, magnificent views of Annapurna Himalayan range and Dhaulagiri region. We got good service from Nepalese trekking agency Nepal Guide Treks more than our expectation. First, we contact with outbound tour operator agency in our country then they told us the fact that they have good B2B relation with Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition. We found the most reliable and experience according to service.
If I go to Nepal again, I will certainly use Nepal Guide Treks and Expedition for a better experience.
