A 'trekking' peak, but this is no indication of the difficulties. Try reading "Himalaya Alpine Style" by Stephen Venables/ Andy Fanshawe for a description, or of course Bill O'Connor's book The Trekking Peaks of Nepal. Right in the centre of the Annapurna sanctuary, with the views and exposure that this brings, Singu Chuli is a fantastic looking peak that seems much more daunting viewed from Annapurna base camp than it's height suggests. This impression grows the closer you get. Various routes are possible but the south ridge dominates the eye. Combined with Tharpu Chuli, its much easier neighbour, it makes] a great and cheap proposition for serious himalayan climbing in fantastic scenery without the crowds
