Acclimatization helps the climber to cope with the altitude sickness in the high mountains. The trail follows a landslide-prone area numerous times during the trek. We might need to change the route at many times during the course.There are several routes from where the summit of Singu Chuli is approached.

The North – East face and the South-West route are the popular routes for climbing the Singu Chuli peak. South-West ridge route is the most popular among amateur climbers. The course also connects with the Tent Peak also called as Tharpu Chuli. An experienced professional guide and an expert veteran climber will guide you all along the way.

The expedition starts with a scenic drive from Kathmandu to Pokhara. From Pokhara, we drive towards Nayapul from where we start our trekking journey. We trek from Nayapul to Tikhedhunga for about five hours. We hike to Ghorepani Poonhill (3,210m) for the mesmerizing view of the sunrise. The trek gradually moves towards Annapurna Base Camp passing through Machhapuchhre Base Camp.

We acclimatize at Annapurna base camp. The day is also an opportunity for us to gain several technical skills from veteran climbing experts. After acclimatizing for a day, we move to Singu Chuli Base camp and then proceed gradually towards High camp. Singu Chuli Peak is quite stiffer that Tented Peak and all the other trekking peaks in that region.
