Who Can Climb Singu Chuli?

Singu Chuli Peak Climbing is a bit challenging due to the involvement of some technical routes towards the summit of this mountain. You need to traverse icy slopes, steep rocks, glacial moraines, and vertical cliffs, especially during the ascent to the High Camp and the summit push. So, you need to have skills or experience in alpine rock and ice climbing. You also should possess knowledge of glacier travel and crevasse rescue techniques. This requires the proper use of fundamental mountaineering equipment like ropes, harnesses, ice axes, and crampons.

During the trekking days, you will have to walk for about 6-7 hours daily over the wilderness Himalayan trails. During the climbing phase, you have to ascend from one camp to another, navigating the complex and unfamiliar routes.

Altitude Sickness
Altitude sickness is the effect of oxygen deficiency in the blood and tissues at the high altitude. It is the negative health effect of high altitude due to the rapid exposure to low amount of oxygen at high elevation. The common symptoms of Altitude sickness include headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping and dizziness.
Altitude Sickness generally referred as Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) occurs only above 2500m. The main reason of altitude sickness is rapid ascent and decreasing amount of oxygen at the high altitude. There are mainly three types of altitude sickness: Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS), High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) and High Altitude Cerebral Edema.
Altitude Sickness can become a medical emergency if ignored. The best way to prevent altitude sickness is to travel to high altitude slowly. It normally doesn’t take long for your body to adjust into a changed altitude. At the higher altitudes, the air pressure and oxygen level is comparatively lower. Our body takes time to adjust to such change. We suggest you to keep you hydrated, not to smoke or drink alcoholic substance, eat hygienic food, sleep low, take it easy, use Diamox tablets etc. to prevent
yourself from Altitude Sickness.
