Peak Climbing in Nepal

Singu Chuli Peak Climbing - 6501 m

Singu Chuli Peak Climbing Singu Chuli formerly known, as Fluted Peak is the 3rd highest amongst the "Trekking Peaks" of Nepal and situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoined to Tharpu Chuli and across Hiunchuli trekking peaks placing a privileged, splendid amphitheatre of glaciers and nodes with, in background the mythical southern face of Annapurna. This peak is really an attractive and compared its beauty with India's highest and probably the most beautiful peak, Nanda Devi but difficult, one that has proven too difficult for commercial climbing groups. Part of the problem is the steepness of the mountain but the final problem is the summit: a 100-foot high block of ice coated with snow. There are a number of different routes on the mountain with icefalls.

We have to do it by a trekking all carefully between cultivated hills nd terraces, marked out by prosperous villages Gurungs. Since the base Camp of Machhapuchhre, we will leave full north towards a less visited wild valley. We arrive at the base camp of Singu Chuli in six or seven days walk from the road head near Pokhara and place a base camp at around 4350m/ 14668ft and then place two higher camps one at 4,900m/16,000ft at the approach of North East Face and the other at 5,500m/18,000ft. on the North East Face of the mountain to before the summit is gained. Some vertical wall near the summit pose some technical challenge on this climb.

Equipments checklists - climbing trips
In addition to the above list of suggested trekking equipment, you should take along with various items of mountaineering tools. For any trip which has crossed by steep, snow-covered ground, or which has included section of glacier travel, it might be necessary for the group roping up as a safety precaution. To facilitate this process of roping up, you will need to maintain a minimum requirement, a climbing harness, a climbing sling and two locking carabineers. Plastic mountaineering boots, a mountaineering ice axe and a pair of crampons with front points are the other items of equipment, which are required for our trekking peak trips. (Please note: Our recommendation that you take no more than 33 pounds of trekking equipment DOES NOT include your plastic boots, ice axe, crampons or harness/carabineers. During the trek, climbing hardware will be carried separately from your personal trek bag in-group bags until needed).

An explanation of the equipment that you will need

Daypacks for climbing trips
3000-4000 cubic inches. For climbing trips, you will be required to carry more warm clothing during the climbs and also your personal climbing gear. For this reason, you will need a slightly bigger daypack than for a trekking-only trip. If you have any questions about gear, please do not hesitate to call our office for advice.

Equipment Rental
In order to minimize your expense outlay for trekking and climbing equipment you may never use again, we offer a wide range of equipment available for rent for the duration of your trip. All rental equipment can be picked up from your trip leader upon arrival for your trip.
