Singu Chuli (6,501 m) is a striking mountain that stands right in the
centre of the Annapurna Sanctuary separating the West and South
Annapurna Glaciers.
While many commercial groups head to its much easier neighbour
Tharpu Chuli (Tent Peak), Singu Chuli remains a challenge reserved for
experienced climbers.
The first ascent was made by Wilf Noyce and David Cox on its North-East
Face and the top section of the East Ridge in 1957 and gave it the name
Fluted Peak. Various routes are possible but the South Ridge is the most
attractive line.
Singu Chuli makes for fabulous, easy to access, low-cost Himalayan
climbing in the centre of the awe-inspiring natural amphitheatre of the
Annapurna Sanctuary.
