Singu Chuli, (6501m)an attractive mountain for climbing, is also known as Fluted Peak . The mountain can be seen from Annapurna South base camp but the better shape of the mountain with pointed ridge of snow and ice is seen from the moraines above the lodges. The normal route for Singu Chuli climbing is from North-East Face.
We follow the trekking trail up to Machhapuchhre base camp and then cross South Annapurna Glaciers and moraines to reach grassy meadows to a rock overhang which can be used as base camp ( 4,200m.). We climb through the glaciers towards north and pass through grassy shelf to reach a ridge where we will set up high camp ( 4,900m.). From this camp we continue climbing between the glaciers and the flank of the mountain to reach a plateau below the North-East Face. We will fix Camp I on a shelf ( 5,600m.) just below the center of the face. We climb towards right hand which lead us just below a vertical wall (122m.). We follow a gully on the left and climb steep steps to gain upper section of the East-Ridge and then to the summit.
