Singu Chuli Fluted Peak Climbing

This Singu Chuli Fluted Peak Climbing is situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary and is adjoined to TharpuChuli and across Hiunchuli peaks. For this peak, we will walk up to the ModiKhola gorge to the Annapurna Sanctuary Base camp at around 4350m and then establish two higher camps, one at 5,200m at the approach of North East Face and a higher one at 5,800m. On the North East Face of the mountain before the summit is gained, a vertical wall near the summit front may be a technical challenge on this climb. This climb is suggested to only those with some alpine and ice climbing experience.
