SINGU CHULI PEAK CLIMBING

A slightly more difficult climb than the neighboring Tharpu Chuli peak climb, but with all the thrills and excitement you would expect climbing through ice and snow at this altitude. Singu Chuli Peak (6,501m) is also known as Fluted Peak and is located within the Annapurna Conservation Area, a place rich in a unique flora, fauna and the effervescent smiles of the local Gurung people and their rich Tibetan Buddhist faith. The views are amazing, especially with the south face of Annapurna as a backdrop. 

The trek begins at Birethanti and passes through the villages of Ghandruk, Chomrong and Ghorepani before arriving at Machapuchare (Fishtail) Base Camp. From here you have some absolutely fantastic in-your-face panoramic views of some of the world’s highest mountains: Annapurna I (8091m), III (7555m) and South (7219m), Hiunchuli (6441m), Baraha Shikhar (7647m), Khangsar Kang (7485m) and Tarke Kang (7193m).  

Your journey begins with a drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara and on to Birethanti. Trekking from here on will take you through terraced agriculture lands, pine and rhododendron forests and along the banks of the Modi Khola (river). The trail will take you through the Tibetan Buddhist villages of the Gurung people and past cascading waterfalls and sightings of several species of animals endemic to this region, Himalayan Black Bear, monkeys, Thar and of course the hardy Yaks grazing at these high altitudes. If you are extremely lucky you could catch a glimpse of the elusive Snow Leopard. The trail leads through mostly through forested areas and past the villages of:  Ghandruk (1940m), Chomrong (2170m), Sinuwa (2320m), and finally back to Nayapul (3510m) where we take public transport back to Pokhara.

ITINERARY

Expand All

Sherpa Expedition & Trekking staff will be there to greet you at Tribhuvan International Airport and take you to your hotel, followed by a briefing covering information, dos and don’ts of your trek. Your safety and comfort are paramount.

Our journey begins with a 6-7 hour drive toward the Pokhara Valley and its beautiful Phewa Tal (lake) and then checking in to your hotel close to Phewa Tal. There is plenty to see and do along Lakeside with its many shops, bars and restaurants to choose from.

We will drive around 1:25 hrs from Pokhara via attractive Lumle Village perched on the mountain side and then trek for five hours on to Nayapul (1050m) and then to Ghandruk where we will stay overnight.

Today’s trek will be around six hours before reaching Chomrong where we will stay overnight.

The trek today is around five to six hours until reaching Dobhan where we spend the night.

We gradually head to higher elevations today and will have several stops in order to catch our breath. The views too get better and more impressive as we ascend to MBC where we stay overnight.

Today is a shorter trekking day, but due to the altitude will require some stamina before reaching ABC where we stay overnight.

Another short day as we head to the base camp at Singu Chuli where we stay the night.

Medical professionals recommend that before heading to higher elevations that trekkers spend some time acclimatizing. They also recommend staying active. We will stay overnight at Tharpu Chuli Base Camp and prepare for climbing to higher elevations.

Today is the day we have been waiting for as we get up early for a nine to ten hour climb to Singu Chuli Peak and from there spend some time taking in some of the finest views in the entire Annapurna region. After some time to click away some photos and rest a little, we will head back down to High Camp for the night. The extra days are allocated due to the weather conditions being less than favorable for the climb to Singu Chuli and to go over some basic safety procedures. We may attempt the peak in stages and camp at 4900m and 5500m before attempting the peak, which means camping at these higher altitudes.

Today we will descend back to MBC where we will stay overnight.

Again we have a day descending back to lower altitudes until we reach Chomrong Village where we stay overnight.

We are slowly making our way back to our departure point, but still have time to take in the beautiful scenery along the trail. We will stay overnight at Ghandruk Village.

This is our final day on the trail and after leaving Ghandruk as we follow an easily traversed trail alongside the Modi Khola River before reaching Nayapul Village before driving back to Pokhara. Tonight we will be staying at Lakeside Pokhara where you can unwind and share your experience over a cold drink.

Today we head back on a 6 to 7 hour drive to Kathmandu with many fond memories of Nepal and its unique culture and geography. These memories will last a lifetime! Sherpa Expedition & Trekking will drop you back at your hotels.

Sherpa Expeditions & Trekking staff will transfer you to the airport for your final departure from Nepal. We hope that this epic trek will be firmly ingrained in your memory and will be enough to prompt you to consider your next trek with us!
