About Singu Chuli Peak Climbing

Singu Chuli 6501m, also known as 'Flute Peak', is situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoined to Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak). The Annapurna Sanctuary refers to an area totally enclosed by a ring of peaks, a natural amphitheater of ice, snow, glacier and moraine. The circle of peaks is broken by a ridge stretching south from Tarke Kang and connecting it to Singu Chuli Peak, 6501m, and Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak).

Several routes have been used to ascend Singu Chuli, but none of them are straightforward. One common route is from southern ridge connecting with Tharpu Chuli. Another route is from a north-east face. Upon reaching Base Camp it will be clearer to decide upon the best route, depending on the snow conditions. There is a nearly vertical snowy wall below its conical summit.This wall, heavily fluted and corniced, makes this magnificent peak a serious but exciting challenge for adventurous mountaineers.   

The trail leading to Singu Chuli Peak is an extraordinary trek in itself. The trek starts from Phedi, only a 45 minute drive from Pokhara and traces the classic stone-step trail of the Annapurna Sanctuary Trekking all the way to Annapurna Base Camp (ABC). The first few days are spent on the south side of the Himalayas, the area of highest rainfall in Nepal, where there are lush subtropical jungles and rhododendron forests. Cozy lodges provide welcome resting places in the villages which are predominately of the Gurung ethnic group.There are amazing post-card scenes of mountains, glaciers, rock faces, and sharp ridges with the patchwork of terraced fields in the foreground. Around four days into the trip, instead of lush jungles there are jagged walls of rock shooting into the sky and cold mountain air. The north side of the Annapurnas falls in the rain shadow and has a dry cold climate with little vegetation. Since the climatic conditions on this trek change over such a short distance, it constantly provides a new environment to explore.

The Annapurna Massif stretches nearly 64 KM between the Kali Gandaki and Marsgyangdi river valleys of central Nepal and boasts twelve peaks over 7000m besides endless smaller peaks. The Annapurna Sanctuary refers to an area totally enclosed by a ring of peaks, a natural amphitheater of ice, snow, glacier and moraine. Singu Chuli Peak lies in the center of this area on a ridge that stretches south from Tarke Kang, also called Glacier Dome.There are two more camps established above Base Camp, 4350m. Our schedule has been carefully planned to allow proper acclimatization and it is not recommended to shorten the ascent. 

The best season for Singu Chuli Peak Climbing is from March to May (Spring) and from September to November (Autumn). However, the winter is also a great time to climb if you are well prepared for the cold weather. In the crisp and cold month of December the views of the mountains are crystal clear and there are fewer tourists around. The duration of the trip can be lengthened or shortened according to your preference. Annapurna Foothills Treks and Expedition will arrange every details of your Singu Chuli Peak Expedition; lodge accommodation, guides, food, as well as all the necessary climbing and camping equipment.
