Singhu Chuli or Flute Peak Climbing - 23 Days

    Overview of Singhu Chuli or Flute Peak Climbing - 23 Days

    Singhu Chuli is the second-highest peak among the trekking Peaks in Nepal and the highest trekking peak in the Annapurna Himalayan range. Singhu Chuli is locally named Flute Peak. Although a trekking peak, it’s technically challenging. One must have good experience climbing on ice.

    The peak was first ascended by Wilf Noyce and David Cox on its North-East face. One can have magnificent views from the top of Singhu Chuli or Flute Peak. The trek starts from the lake city of Pokhara and includes Annapurna sanctuary trekking and Poon Hill viewpoint of the entire Annapurna Region.

    All Nepal Hiking has carefully crafted this trip keeping in mind a place for proper acclimatization, pace, and rest before reaching the Base Camp. ANH supplies sufficient fuel and food with necessary mountain gear and enough manpower with technical knowledge. Our climbing guides are experienced with advanced training from NMA and are also supported by other Sherpa crews. We also encounter Gurung and Magar culture and traditions while passing through the world-famous rhododendron forests along the way.
