Singu chuli peak climbing [6501 m.]

Asian Expedition offers a climb of 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.Climbers arrive at the base camp at around 4350m. and then place two higher camps one at 4,900m. at the approach of North East Face and the other at 5,500m. 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.As you approach the Sanctuary and reach the simple lodges at Machha-puchhare base camp little can be seen of the mountain, which is toward the head of the valley, cradling the West Annapurna Glacier .It is the first summit on the long ridge thrown down from Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome), which separates the South and West Annapurna Glaciers.
