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.

Climbing Detail

  • The standard ascent to Ama Dablam is made via the South-Western Ridge, the same route followed by Ward (UK), Bishop (USA) and Gill (NZ) in the first ascent of the mountain in 1961 AD. The route offers varied and sustained climb with reasonable level of difficulty.
  • Three high camps are set up at strategic points. Camp 1 (5600m), Camp 2 (5900m) and Camp 3 (6200m) with Base Camp at 4500m and High Camp at 5000m.
