    Hiunchuli Peak Climbing (6441m), loved by the trekkers, is one of the favorite expedition sites due to less difficult climbing to the peak. It is the fourth largest among the ‘Trekking Peaks’. The first documented climb to the peak was in October 1971 by American Peace Corps Expedition, led by Craig Anderson.

    Hiunchuli peak forms the southern wall of Annapurna range, lying in the ranges of Annapurna South. Hiunchuli Peak is a majestic peak, whose beauty is adored by all the trekkers, who are interested to visit Annapurna Base camp. Even though the mountain is quite easy to trek and climb, it is usually ignored by the climbers owing to the possibility of increased chances of avalanches and rock fall. Hiunchuli is an easy peak for the climbers, but the risk of rock falls limits the trekkers to climb this magnificent peak. The way to the peak is also difficult and inaccessible most of the times. Veteran climbers, however, can easily find the way to the peak; little attention has somewhat hidden the glory of this majestic mountain.

    In order to reach Hiunchuli Peak, we follow the way of the Annapurna Sanctuary trail to Hinku. From Hinku, we climb a steep hill in order to reach the base camp. This base camp will work as our resting spot before making the next to climb the peak from the South-East route. In total, three camps are usually established before finally reaching Hiunchuli. The alternative route is on the North-West face, where the base camp is established at the Annapurna south near the lodges.

    Why Hiunchuli Peak Climbing

    • Most popular climbing peak.
    • Stunning view of Annapurna I, Annapurna II, Annapurna III, Annapurna IV, Machhapuchare, Dhaulagiri, Nilgiri, Tukuche Peak, Annapurna South, and Lamjung Himal and so on.
    • Trekking to the popular Annapurna region.
    • Typical Nepal trekking off the beaten track north of Annapurna.
    • Most interesting and challenging peak to climb.

     

    Climbing Route:
    South-East Face Route: This path begins from the Hinku cave on the Annapurna trail. Once you leave past the first base camp, you will end up building 2 more base camps above the valley before finally reaching the top of the peak. This path is less difficult to climb, but always pose a risk of rock falls, hence making the route quite complicated.

    North-West Face Route: This one is a tougher one. Many have tried to climb through this path, only a few have been successful to reach the peak. The reason for its difficulty is finding the route. The exact route of the peak is not known to many climbers. The first base camp is established at Annapurna Sanctuary, followed by the other two base camps along the path. However, generally, climbers avoid this path due to less information on the path and the exact route to the summit.
