Singhu Chuli or Flute Peak – 23 Days

singu chuli peak
Singhu Chuli is the second highest peak among the trekking Peaks in Nepal and the highest trekking peak in Annapurna Himalayan range. Singhu Chuli is locally named as Flute Peak. Although a trekking peak, it’s technically challenging. One must have a good experience of climbing in ice. 
 
The peak was first ascended by Wilf Noyce and David Cox on its North-East face. One can have magnificent views from the top of Singhu Chuli or Flute Peak. The trek starts from the lake city of Pokhara and includes Annapurna sanctuary trekking and Poon Hill viewpoint of the entire Annapurna Region.
  
All Nepal Hiking has carefully crafted this trip keeping in mind place for proper acclimatization, pace and rest before reaching the Base Camp. ANH supplies sufficient fuel and foods with necessary mountain gears and enough manpower with technical knowledge. Our climbing guides are experienced with advanced training from NMA and are also supported by other Sherpa crews. We also encounter Gurung and Magar culture and traditions while passing through the world famous rhododendron forests along the way.

Some have western food such as pizza, pasta and French fries. Soft drinks, snacks and beer are available in most of the Tea Houses and trail side restaurants
 
Safe Drinking Water in Trekking
We suggest you to drink boiled filter water. For boiled water ask to lodge people which might cost little during whole period of trekking or bring chlorine tablets to purify the normal water available in the guest houses along the way. Several guesthouses have Euro-guard filters as well. Although mineral water is available in most places which is better choice and there is no provision to dispose of the plastic bottles, but we encourage the guests to do what they can protect the environment.

Weather & climate
Weather and climate varies as per season in Nepal.
Autumn (mid-September to end-November)
Autumn is the most popular time to trek. During this time, the weather is clear with mild to warm days and cold nights. However, in the higher altitude, the nights drop into freezing temperature. In this season, the mountains views are clear.
 
Winter (end-November through March)
It is also possible to trek during winter, from December until the end of February. Daytime temperatures will be cooler; however, the nights will often be very cold. The days are generally clear but occasional winter storms can bring snow as low as 2500m. Early October through late November is also the busiest period for trekking. But in mid-winter (January through March), trekking is more challenging in the high altitudes with semi-regular snowfall followed by more winter storms, which break the long fine periods. The mid-December to mid-February is the coldest time.
 
Spring and early summer (mid-March through May)
During this period the mornings are usually clear but afternoon cloud build-up brings occasional showers. The days are mix up with warm and rain, which displays wildflowers like rhododendrons. The whole country is lush and an abundant green at this season. This period instigate the second most popular and pleasant trekking season as this is rice-planting time. Late-march into April is especially beautiful. It is also a good time for climbing as the high passes are usually snow free and the mountain views are still clear in April. Up to May, the weather becomes hazy and disturbed with the clouds.
 
The monsoon (June to mid-September)
From June to early September, is the monsoon season. Generally the morning is cloudy and cloud wisps form on random ridges and peaks. Trekking at this time of year is generally difficult and uncomfortable as the weather is hot and it rains almost every day. The trails become muddy and are often leech-infested and the mountains are usually obscured by cloud. During April and May, there is an expectation of thunderstorm, hail shower and strong winds among the fine periods. There are, however, possibilities for summer trekking in the trans-Himalayan regions of mustang, Dolpo and Tibet. These regions lie in a rain-shadow and therefore receive significantly less precipitation than the more southerly areas.
 
Washing and Toilet facilities for Tea house Trekking
Most lodges provide hot showers, though sometimes a hot shower means a bucket of hot water only but availability of hot water can ask to your trekking guide. For ecological reasons please try to limit your use of hot water unless if you are provide solar - heated water.  Please note that at higher altitude and in colder seasons there is rare chance to have enough hot water for all the trekkers. If the water is frozen then ask your guide to get warm bowl of water.
Toilets are usually Asian squat style and vary in how clean they are. Normally toilets are outside the lodge but now some lodges have attached or indoor toilets. The rubbish bin in the toilet is kept for your used toilet paper.
 
Re-charging Batteries of Electronic Items on the Trek
You can recharge your batteries with electricity or solar power sources. In Nepal 220 – 240 volt 50 MHZ (50 Cycles per Second) power is supplied. Just need to have a plug adaptor in case of socket fitting, which you can buy in Kathmandu before the trip since the plugs in Nepal might be different. You might have to pay small amount fee/hour for recharging facilities.

High Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness often known as acute mountain sickness (A.M.S.) in general may occur when people ascend too quickly normally in altitudes of over 3000 m. Most people will feel some effect of altitude, shortness of breath and possibly a light headed, which is fairly common. Acute mountain sickness is very different and normally involves a severe headache, sickness and loss of awareness. In almost every potential case there are enough warning signs to take appropriate action. When symptoms of altitude sickness develop you, please tell your trekking guide. He will advise you do deal with your problem. Generally over exertion and dehydration contribute to altitude sickness. So drink at least 3-4 liters of water every day besides tea and coffee which act as diuretics.
