Formerly known as the Fluted Peak, the first ascent of the Singu-Chuli Peak was made by Wilf Noyce and David Cox on its North-East Face and the top section of the East Ridge. The Fluted peak has proved to a demanding attempt for most commercial climbing groups that concentrate on Tent Peak.  Singu Chuli 6,501m is the 3rd highest amongst the "Trekking Peaks" of Nepal and situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary adjoined to Tharpu Chuli and across Hiunchuli trekking peaks placing a privileged, splendid amphitheatre of glaciers and nodes with, in background the mythical southern face of Annapurna. The first summit on the long ridge thrown down from Tarke Kang (Glacier Dome), which separates the South and West Annapurna Glaciers. Climbing Singu Chuli required Good knowledge of technical climbing skills specially on summit day, such as walking with crampons, zoomers, figure of eight to rappel down so it is preferable that you have used these previously. we recommend expedition participants to train hard as this is physically demanding peak climbing trip in Annapurna region. However, it can be climbed by amateur mountaineer with basic climbing experience

Encounter with many regular Annapurna Base Camp trekkers sharing warm cozy dining with them until Machhapuchhre (Fishtail) Base camp and acclimatization hike to famed Annapurna Base Camp its an exceptional part of the trip. Singu Chuli peak climbing leads through beautiful Gurung’s helmets above the Modi River upstream. You will entertain great cultural and natural sites while approaching the Singu Chuli climb. Despite all these six days set aside for the summit Singu chuli including climbing clinic with full support of Xtreme Climbers highly experienced helping crew and Climbing Sherpa Guide and member in high qualities tented camp. Leading to the Singu Chuli expedition through narrow gully being the most challenging segment of the trip. Climbing the much stiffer proposition below the Summit is some technical difficulties on this climb, however the views from the top are astounding and make all the tough effort worthwhile.

Altitude Sickness

Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is common at high altitudes sickness. In general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally in altitudes of over 3000 m. The symptoms of altitude sickness are due to lower air pressure at high altitudes, which results in lower oxygen levels as you breathe the air in. The air is under less pressure and this makes it harder for your body to get the oxygen out of the air and into the circulation. It's this extra strain on the body that causes altitude sickness.

Symptoms tend to be worse at night and include headache, dizziness, and lethargy, loss of appetite, nausea, breathlessness and irritability. Difficulty sleeping is another common symptom.

The major symptoms of altitude sickness
Initial symptoms
  1. Periods of sleeplessness
  2. Runny nose.
  3. Extra tiredness
  4. Occasional loss of appetite
  5. Feeling laziness
  6. Wish to vomiting
  7. Periodic breathing

Above are normal symptoms which may occur into your body that you should not be worried. Every trekker will experience some or all of these, no matter how slowly they ascend.

Advance symptoms
  1. Headache and vomiting
  2. Dizziness
  3. Racing heartbeat
  4. Exhaustion
  5. Nausea
  6. Diarrhoea
  7. Loss of apatite
  8. Weakness
  9. Hard to breath
  10. Extra tired
  11. Dry Raspy cough
  12. Sleeplessness

When above symptoms will occur into your body, these symptoms usually resolve by spending one or two extra nights at the same altitude or using medicine. Even you are resting at the same altitude or using medicine, if symptoms are becoming worse, then it is necessary to descend.

Serious Symptoms
  1. Worsening headache and vomiting
  2. Swelling of hands and face
  3. Reduced urine output
  4. Walking with a staggering gait
  5. Confusion
  6. Increased tiredness
  7. Breathing irregularity
  8. Visual hallucinations (seeing things that are not real)
  9. Changes in the ability to think
  10. Changes in normal behavior

If above serious symptoms will occur into your body, these extremely dangerous symptoms are called High Altitude Cerebral Edema (or HACE). They can lead to unconsciousness and death within 12 hours. Increasing shortness of breath, cough and tiredness may also be signs of High Altitude Pulmonary Edema or HAPE. HAPE can also be rapidly fatal if ignored.

To prevent acute mountain sickness:
  1. If possible, don't fly or drive to high altitude. Start below 3,000 metres (10,000 feet) and walk up.
  2. If you do fly or drive, do not overexert yourself or move higher for the first 24 hours.
  3. If you go above 3,000 metres (10,000 feet), only increase your altitude by 350 to 500 metres (1,000 feet) per day
  4. Climb high and sleep low! You can climb more than 300 to 500 metres in a day as long as you come back down and sleep at a lower altitude.
  5. If you begin to show symptoms of moderate altitude sickness, don't go higher until symptoms decrease.
  6. Drink plenty of water, tea or juice etc (at least three to 4 liters per day). Urine output should be copious and clear to pale yellow.
  7. Eat high-carbohydrate foods (rice, pasta, cereal) for more energy.
  8. Take it easy and don't overexert yourself when you first get up to altitude. But, light activity during the day is better than sleeping because respiration decreases during sleep, exacerbating the symptoms.
  9. Avoid alcohol as it may increase the risk of dehydration, and don't smoke.
  10. Don't push yourself when climbing up to passes, rather take plenty of breaks.
  11. Avoid taking sleeping pills.
  12. Avoid active movements and try to relax in the first one or two days upon arrival at the high altitude areas.
  13. Bring adequate medicine.
  14. If nothing else works, return to the areas with the lower elevation.
  15. Allow sufficient time for acclimatization (After 3000 meters).
  16. Don’t make rapid Ascent. Don’t go too far too fast.
  17. Do not trek/travel alone, take guide/porter.
  18. Follow the advice from your guide, hotel, local, guide book.
  19. Descent if mild symptoms rapidly getting worse.
  20. Never leave or descent sick person along.
  21. Avoid getting cold.
  22. Take an easy and comfortable trekking route even if its longer
Medicine:

Following is a list of items you should consider including in your medical kit - consult your pharmacist for brands available in your country.

  1. Aspirin or paracetamol - for pain or fever
  2. Antihistamine - for allergies, eg hay fever; to ease the itch from insect bites or stings; and to prevent motion sickness.
  3. Antibiotics consider including these if you're traveling well off the beaten track' see your doctor, as they must be prescribed, and carry the prescription with you.
  4. Loperamides or Diphenoxylate 'blockers' for diarrhea' Prochlorperazine or metaclopramide for nausea and vomiting.
  5. Rehydration mixture to prevent dehydration, eg due to severe diarrhea; particularly important when traveling with children.
  6. Insect repellent, sunscreen, lip balm and eye drops.
  7. Calamine lotion, sting relief spray or aloe vera-to ease irritation from sunburn and insect bites or stings.
  8. Antifungal cream or powder - for fungal skin infections and thrush.
  9. Antiseptic, such as povidone-iodine for cuts and grazes.
  10. Bandages, band-aids or plasters and other would dressings.
  11. Scissors, tweezers and a thermometer (note that mercury thermometers are prohibited by airlines)
  12. Cold and Flu tablets, throat lozenges and nasal decongestant.
  13. Multivitamines - consider for long trips, when dietary vitamin intake may be inadequate.
