Singu Chuli Expedition
Singu Chuli Peak (6501m) also know as Fluted peak is situated in Annapurna Himal range in Annapurna Sanctuary. Wilfred Noyce and David Cox who first climbed this peak compared the beauty of peak with Nanda Devi, Indian most beautiful peak.
This 19 days of climbing Singu Chuli is followed by famous Annapurna Sanctuary or Annapurna base camp trek which is celebrity among all treks in Nepal. The trek to base camp of Singu Chuli peak passes through colorful bamboo and reddish rhododendron forest, amazing waterfall, suspension bridge and villages full of ancient Himalayan lifestyle. As altitude increases, the settlement of locals get thinner and remoteness of path leads us to base camp. A vertical wall near the summit poses technical challenge therefore some alpine and ice climbing experience in required. After the climb, we make our way back to Pokhara via Bamboo and Jhinu dada.
