While making a short trek into the Annapurna Sanctuary one can also attempt the Tharpu Chuli Peak ascent. This is the best trip to climb a Himalayan peak in the shortest timeframe. The excitement and pleasure of the approach as one treks along the rich and fertile Modi Khola with its tumbling cascades and high waterfalls, and through the colorful Gurung villages is a lifetime experience.
Singu Chuli is the mountain formerly known as Fluted Peak. A few days after enjoying that view of “ Fluters”, Wilf Noyce and David Cox went on to make the first ascent of this attractive and difficult mountain up its Northeast Face and across the top section of the East Ridge.
The bulk of Mera, officially the highest of Nepal's permitted trekking peaks, lies to the south of Everest and dominates the watershed between the wild and heavily wooded valleys of the Hinku and Hongu Drangkas.
The ascent of Chulu West and Chulu Central are best made from a base camp in a small valley north of Manang situated off the main trail to Thorong La pass 5416m. Indeed some of the best views of this peak can be seen from that pass.
Even in the world arena Amadablam (22,501ft/6856m) is one of the more popular mountains to climb. Despite its relatively low elevation, its incredible shape poses innumerable challenges to the intrepid climbers.
