Singu Chuli & Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing


Singu Chuli & Tharpu Chuli Peak Climbing

Singu Chuli 6,501m (21,329ft), formerly regarded as the Flute Peak is situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoining Tharpu Chuli and across the Hiunchuli peak. The first ascent of the mountain was made by Wilf Noyce and David Cox from the Northeast Face and the East Ridge top section. Singu Chuli peak standing at an altitude of 6,501 m provides the climbers with the perfect view of the Annapurna region. The trek toward the Singu Chuli peak base camp must pass through the Annapurna base camp's main trekking route. We moved up Modi Khola gorge to Annapurna Sanctuary and set up two higher tents, one at 4,900 m at the North East Face approach and a second at 5,500 m on the North-East Face of the mountain. In addition to the high Annapurna hills, we can also enjoy the beautiful view of the hills such as Annapurna (8,091 m), Dhaulagiri (8,167 m) and the Machhapuchhre (6,993 m). Landruk, Ghandruk, Chhomrong, Ghorepani are included in this area before reaching the Machhapuchhre base camp and Annapurna base camp. Following this point, you ascend the Tharpu Chuli peak. Tharpu Chuli Peak is also known as "Tent peak". The first climb was in 1964 by a Japan team led by Dr Haruo Higuchi. The ascend is from the Northwest ridge, where you can see the panoramic views of Hiunchuli (6,331m), Annapurna South (7,219m), BarahaShikar (7,647m), Annapurna I (8,091m), Kangshar Kang(7,485m), Tarke Kang(7,193m), Gangapurna (7,455m), Gandharva Chuli (6,248m). Along this climb, the summit poses several technological difficulties. Therefore, those with any alpine and ice-climbing experience are recommended to Singu Chuli and Tharpu Chuli Peak climbing.
