Singu Chuli Peak Climbing

Singu Chuli, 6501 meter high is formerly known, as Fluted Peak is the 3rd highest amongst the "Trekking Peaks" of Nepal and situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoined to Tharpu Chuli and across Hiunchuli trekking peaks placing a privileged, splendid amphitheatre of glaciers and nodes with, in background the mythical southern face of Annapurna. This peak is really an attractive and compared its beauty with India´s highest and probably the most beautiful peak, Nanda Devi but difficult, one that has proven too difficult for commercial climbing groups. Part of the problem is the steepness of the mountain but the final problem is the summit: a 100-foot high block of ice coated with snow. There are a number of different routes on the mountain with icefalls. The way up to the base camp is also the way back down. The trek is not easy, and the adjustment to high altitudes may be difficult, and altitude sickness is very common. On the other hand, anyone with a reasonable level of physical fitness can walk the trek. This trek is one of the most popular in Nepal and for good reason. Annapurna Base Camp is surrounded by a cirque of awe-inspiring peaks, including the awesome south face of Annapurna I (8,091m), in a natural amphitheatre which is quite simply mind-blowing. 

Our expedition starts from Pokhara with a short drive to the road head. We ascend well-trodden trails through terraced farmland and traditional villages. As we climb through ancient oak and rhododendron forest, across sparkling streams and past waterfalls, the world of snow and ice starts to unfold above us. This combination of pretty villages and terraced fields of millet and rice, coupled by the majestic splendor of Machhapuchhre (6,993m), Annapurna I and Hiunchuli (6,441m) make this an extremely rewarding trek. Climbing up the Modi Khola valley towards the sanctuary we are teased with views of towering peaks and dizzyingly high rock walls with waterfalls tumbling down into the roar of the river below. As the gorge widens, we ascend to Machhapuchhre Base Camp (3,700m) on the lateral moraine of Annapurana South glacier. The steady climb up to Annapurna Base Camp reveals the full splendor of this natural amphitheatre. When we reach our destination, a short diversion up to Poon Hill (3,190m) before leaving the Annapurna Conservation Area offers us a chance to obtain great views of another Himalayan giant - Dhaulagiri (8,167m). The sunrise views from here are legendary.
