About Singu Chuli Peak Climbing

Singu Chuli (6,501 meters) is the second-highest trekking peak in Nepal. It is also known as the Fluted Peak because of its fluted appearance. Singu Chuli is located inside the Annapurna Sanctuary, west of the Gangapurna Himal and adjoined with Tharpu Chuli (5,663 meters) across the Hinchuli peak (6,441 meters).

Climbing Singu Chuli is a technically challenging peak, but it offers stunning views of the surrounding mountains, including Annapurna I (8,091 meters), Annapurna II (7,937 meters), Dhaulagiri (8,167 meters), and Machhapuchhre (6,993 meters). A proper acclimatization, a basic level of fitness and stamina are essential for a successful summit due to the steep summit. However, the views from the summit are said to be the best in the Annapurna region.

Singu Chuli climbing  Route

There are several routes to approach the summit of Singu Chuli, but the north-east face and the south-west route are the most popular. Both routes connect with the Tent Peak (Tharpu Chuli). The trekking to the base camp of the Singu Chuli peak will go through the main trekking trail of the Machhapuchhre base camp and Annapurna base camp. The trek itself begins with a short drive to Nayapul from Pokhara city. The whole trekking route offers rich cultural and traditional experiences in the villages of Ghandruk and Chomrong. During the trek, you will encounter glimpses of local life and enjoy the scenic terraced farmland of millet and rice, as well as snow-capped views of the Annapurna South, Machhapurchhare, and Hinchuli.
