Singu Chuli Peak Climbing(6501m) (also known as Fluted Peak) is one of the beautiful trekking peaks in the Annapurna region of Nepal. It lies just west of Gangapurna in the Annapurna Himal. This mountain is more challenging than Tharpu Chuli. And it is the highest of all the trekking peaks in the Annapurna region.
It is a part of the ridgeline extending south from Glacier Dome. And sharing it with neighboring attractive peak- Tharpu Chuli or Tent Peak. The route is not straightforward up to the summit of the Singu Chuli peak. Trekking begins through terraced fields and smaller settlements inhabited by Gurung ethnic group of people at a lower altitude, heading to the north towards a less-visited wild valley. After six days of walk we will arrive Singu Chuli base camp at the elevation of 4350m. Then, two higher camps- one at 4,900m at the approach of North-East Face and the other at 5,500m beyond the North-East Face of the mountain is reached before the summit. While climbing, a vertical wall near the summit poses some technical challenges to reach the summit.
Climbing to Singu Chuli peak is for those with some alpine and ice climbing experience. The climber should be skillful at using ice climbing equipment. Apart from climbing any trekker can also enjoy the great cultural diversity in Ulleri, Jhinu Danda, and Chomrong villages. After entering the Fish Tail (Machhapuchhare Base Camp) and Annapurna Base Camp, trekkers can enjoy the panoramic views of the world’s highest mountains such as Annapurna I, Annapurna III and many other snow-clad peaks.
