Wilfred Noyce, the first man to summit
this shapely mountain with David Cox compared
its beauty with India's highest and probably
the most beautiful peak, Nanda Devi. This
peak is situated in the Annapurna Sanctuary
adjoined to Tharpu Chuli and across Hiunchuli
peaks. We arrive at the base camp of Singu
Chuli in spectacular six days walk up
the Modi Khola gorge to the Annapurna
Sanctuary. Base camp at around 4350m/14668ft
and then establish two higher camps, one
at 4,900m/16,000ft at the approach of
North East Face and a higher one at 5,500m/18,000ft.

before the summit is gained. A vertical
wall near the summit pose some technical
challenge on this climb. This climb is
suggested to only those with some alpine
and ice climbing experience.
