Singu Chuli peak climbing, also known as the ‘fluted peak’ is one of the most thrilling and well-famed treks in the Annapurna region. Situated at an altitude of 6,501m, it is the third highest trekking peak in Nepal. Since Wilf Noyce and David Cox first summited this peak in 1957, only a few people have attempted the summit due to its difficulty. Falling stones and the landslide-prone terrain makes the trek more challenging to climb.

Singu Chuli peak offers majestic views of the stunning Himalayas such as Dhaulagiri (8,167m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Annapurna II (7,937m), Machhapuchhre (6,993m) and its neighboring mountains. You also get to witness the diverse culture and lifestyle of the people of Ghandruk and Chhomrong, along with undisturbed flora and fauna while walking through the trail.

Because of its difficulty, the Singu Chuli peak climbing is best for people having

some alpine and ice climbing experience. The mountain has a stiffer rate of climb and rough landscapes that can prove strenuous to novice climbers. Climbers need to have strong physical endurance and mental well being, because of the rugged landscapes and unpredicted weather change.

This 20-day Singu Chuli peak climbing (via Ghorepani-Landruk) package offers you the best mountaineering experience along with fantastic views of the neighboring mountains and vast cultural diversity. It is bound to give you an experience that you will never forget!

About The Route

This Singu Chuli Peak Climbing package commences with a short drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara which takes roughly 6-7 hours. The following day we start our hike by driving to Nayapul and trekking further to Ulleri. The trail then takes us to the village of Ghorepani.

Ghorepani is home to a majority of Gurungs and Sherpas and is rich in cultures and traditions. On a clear day, the views of the mountains are majestic from here! We also take a short hike in the morning to Poonhill. Poonhill is famous amongst many tourists due to the fantastic panoramic views it provides.

We further follow the trail passing the villages of Tadapani, Chhomrong, Dovan and finally into Machhapuchhre Base Camp. The trail then takes us from MBC to Annapurna Base Camp. You can view the majestic Annapurna mountains range in all its glory!

We then head towards Sing Chuli Peak base camp from where we will be summiting the peak. We slowly ascent camp I and camp II, attempt the summit and head the way back to base camp. The view from the peak is absolutely rewarding and worth every penny!

The path leading to it is challenging and risky, with debris falling and the possibility of landslides. So to be on the safe side, it is better to opt for this trek in a favorable season.

After the summit, we head back to Pokhara via Deurali, Jhinu Dada and Landruk. Passing Dhampus and Phedi, we finally reach Pokhara, from where we will be taking a bus back to the capital.

How Difficult Is The Singu Chuli Peak Climbing?

Singu Chuli peak climbing is quite a strenuous climb and not suitable for people having no experience in mountaineering before. The steep slope, the falling debris, and occasional landscapes make the mountain quite tricky to climb.

Because the trek is challenging, you need to have good physical endurance and stamina to perform the climb. The entire trek requires 5-6 hours of walking daily and walking through some steep landscapes. The hair raising steep slope during the final climb is also nerve-wracking and requires a hefty amount of stamina to accomplish.

You also need to have knowledge of using mountaineering equipment such as ice-axes, crampons, ropes, and carabiners. Our guides will provide you with more extensive expertise and training prior to the climb.

Altitude sickness can also create trouble for many individuals. Since we will be climbing at an altitude above 5000m, the air gets quite thinner, and fatigue kicks in. Even though we have designed the itinerary in the best way possible to avoid altitude sickness, you should speak to your guide if you experience any symptoms.

Summarizing it, if you’re a novice trekker without any experience, then it is better to perform for some easier climbs before attempting this one. However, for climbers who do have some relevant experience and a hunger for adventure, then the Singu Chuli peak climbing is the one trek you shouldn’t miss!

Best Time For The Singu Chuli Peak Climbing?

Due to the high level of difficulty of the trek, the trek is not feasible for all seasons. For summiting the peak, good weather is a must. Snowfall, landslides, and heavy winds can create problems during the summit.

The most favorable seasons for this trek typically are during spring and autumn when the skies are clear, winds are lesser, and there is no rain or snowfall. In Nepal, spring usually falls between April to May and autumn falls between September-November.

Traveling during winter can be hazardous due to the extreme cold weather. It can eventually lead to snow blindness or frostbite. So, it’s best to avoid it during the winter season. The rainy season isn’t any better either due to the constant rain and snowfall, causing icy and slippery trails. The dense snow trails in the mountains also make it difficult to walk through.

So the next time you’re opting for this trek, we recommend that you visit during the favorable seasons to capture some fantastic views of the mountains and creating a lifetime experience!
