Singu Chuli and Tharpu Chuli Peak climbing - 27 days

Singu Chuli Peak or Fluted Peak is a challenging peak to climb because of its confusing outline. However, this peak's breathtaking Mountain View is genuinely worth it. Wolf Noyce and David Cox made this peak's first ascent on its North-East Face and the East Ridge's top section. Singu Chuli Peak, 5663m, rises in the middle of the theater, encircled by immense walls of glaciers and mountains over 7000 and 8000 meters in height. The SinghuChuli treks start from Phedi—a 45-minute drive from Pokhara—and traces the classic stone step trail of the Annapurna Sanctuary trek to Annapurna Base Camp. This expedition allows you to witness and explore the region's cultural diversity. Landru, ghandruk, chhomorong, and Ghorepani include this area before entering the Machhapurchhare base camp and Annapurna base camp. A problematic mountain peak, so you will be required to have a well-trained guide to assist you. After climbing this peak, you will climb the Tharpuchuli peak.

TharpuChuli peak is also known as the Tent peak. The first ascent was by a Japanese group led by Dr. Haruo Higuchi in 1964. Some steep climbing sections make this climb very interesting and adventurous, challenging for those attempting to climb a trekking peak for the first time. The rise is from the standard Northwest Ridge, which is an alpine PD grade. You can see the panoramic views of Hiunchuli, 6331m, Annapurna South, 7219m, BarahaShikar, 7647m, Annapurna I, 8091m, Kangshar Kang, 7485m, Tarke Kang, 7193m, Gangapurna,7455m, Annapurna III,7555m, GandharbaChuli, 6248m, and Machhapuchhare, 6993m. After the summit of Tent Peak, climbers follow an alternative route which leads to Ghorepani and descends into the Kali Gandaki Valley.

Satori adventures will operate the combined peak climbing of Tharpu Chuli and Singu Chuli peak in the spring and autumn season. Since this is a more adventurous and challenging trek, climbing gear such as Ice Axe, Crampons, standard Carabineers, trekking poles, ropes, etc., are required and an experienced climbing guide.

How to Book?

How to book holiday trip in Nepal?

Satori Adventures and Expedition aims at giving proper information to many travelers, trekkers and climbers who have some confusion regarding the booking process of the trip in Nepal.Satori Adventures therefore desires to provide guideline for the first-time visitors or travelers so that they can comfortably start the process to book the selected package legally. Before starting the booking process we always advise our trekkers, travelers and climbers to intelligently check whether the company is genuine and whether they are fully safe to travel in the company’s guidance. We ask them to be acquainted with the company they want book their holiday trip with. Is the company genuine and authorized from Government of Nepal, Office of the Company Registrar, Department of Tourism and Civil Aviation, Nepal Rastra Bank ‒Central Bank of Nepal (authorized for foreign currency), Permanent Account Number (PAN), and the Department of Cottage Small Industries). Are they financially secured and environmentally conscious? We advise them to make sure about these formalities because there are some companies in Nepal that have been running business without abiding by the rules and regulation of the Government. Some companies were once registered but by now their licenses have already been expired and yet they have providing the services illegally.

On many occasions, Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal have found that many foreigners’ tour operators, NGOs and INGOs have been involved in directly operating tours, trekking, and mountaineering holiday adventures without having government license and abiding by the Government rules. It has been also found that many individuals, freelance guides and porters have been arranging trips illegally by creating their own personal website. We have observed that many trekkers and climbers face a host of problems once they arrive in Kathmandu as they lack adequate information. Many of them file complaints to Government of Nepal and Trekking Agency Association of Nepal for legal action such as the refund of the advanced payment. There is hardly any justice given to the cheated clients. Thus, so as to prevent all these probable problems we request our travelers to check the company before booking any trip to the Himalayas.

To conform and process your trip booking please follow these suggestions:

Please kindly submitTrip Booking Form when you confirm the trip with us. It will be easy for us to process for your trip conformation and prepare all legal processes and permit for the trip. If you have any query, always feel free to contact us at any time. We always want to make sure our clients are well informed before conforming the trip.
